Fashion and racing combine at Redcar this Saturday as the final day of Royal Ascot is celebrated with ‘Ladies Day’ at the course – the second leg of a two-day meeting (Friday and Saturday, June 21 & 22)


Saturday’s seven-race programme begins at 2-05 p.m. and is one of the social and fashion highlights of the year in the Tees Valley. As usual on this day, there are competitions to find the ‘Best-Dressed Lady’ and the lady wearing the ‘Best Hat’, with top prizes from Market Cross Jewellers, Chic Hats, Orange Kerr Beauty Treatments, Capture Le Coeur Photography and Flowers by Hannah.
The first three in both competitions receive special prizes. The lady judged to be the ‘Best-Dressed’ on Saturday will receive a 9-carat white gold Blue Topaz and a cocktail ring from Market Cross Jewellers from Market Cross Jewellers, vouchers from Orange Kerr Beauty Treatments and a bouquet from Flowers by Hannah. The winner will also receive automatic entry into the Grand Final of the ‘Best-Dressed Lady Racegoer in Yorkshire’ competition, held at Doncaster in October, which is the culmination of a special competition linking all of the individual ‘Ladies’ Days’ on the Yorkshire racecourses this year. She will then have the chance to win a luxury prize for two at the award-winning Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel near Doncaster, along with other top prizes.
The lady judged to be wearing the ‘Best Hat’ will receive a bespoke fascinator from Chic Hats, along with a photo-shoot by Capture Le Coeur Photography and a bouquet from Flowers by Hannah.
In addition, the racecourse has teamed up with Teesside Hospice to showcase how to look great without breaking the bank in a ‘Dress For Less’ fashion show just after the first race.
Redcar’s general manager, Amy Fair enthused “We all look forward to ‘Ladies’ Day’, as it’s an excuse to really dress to impress and have the chance to win some superb prizes.”
Saturday’s action on the track features The H. Jarvis 135th Anniversary Handicap Stakes – a contest over seven furlongs – supported by H. Jarvis Ltd. of Marske, one of the UK’s leading window and door makers – while the opening race, a contest for maiden two-year-olds is supported by regular sponsors, Market Cross Jewellers in association with The European Breeders’ Fund. Further highlights on Saturday are The TEC4M Building The Future Handicap Stakes (a race for three-year-old sprinters) and The Litchfield Group Sheerframe Claiming Stakes over seven furlongs.
There are also seven races on Friday, starting at 2-10 p.m., the main race being The Anderson Barrowcliff Handicap Stakes, a contest over the straight mile supported by the Thornaby-based chartered accountants and business advisers, who are long-standing sponsors at Redcar. The Jack Everson Memorial Handicap Stakes is contested over one mile and a quarter.
The giant screen on both days will enable racegoers to see even more action on the track, as well as the main races from Royal Ascot. As usual, accompanied children under 16 are admitted free of charge into all enclosures
