Fabulous prizes are on offer throughout the season and each winner will be invited to a Grand Finale which will be held during the St Leger Festival at Doncaster on Ladies’ Day on Thursday, 9 September.

The star prize for the winner is a luxury Pampering Pyjama Party for six – the perfect ‘girly get-together’ – unwind at this renowned hotel and enjoy music, DVD’s and a Wii console after dinner, which is served in a private apartment at the award-winning Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel Doncaster, while the next morning experiencing the ‘Ladies Indulgence’ package in the Therapie Health & Wellness Centre.
The Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel Doncaster was voted Yorkshire’s Hotel of the Year in the White Rose Awards for Tourism 2009 under the auspices of Welcome to Yorkshire – the official tourism body for the region. The owner of the hotel, Richard McIlroy said “We are delighted to support this prestigious event, which complements our coveted award of which we are very proud. I’m sure the winner and her friends will have a superb time with us.”
The first Ladies’ Day in the county takes place at Wetherby on Thursday afternoon, 20 May featuring catwalk collections from students of The Leeds College of Art & Design.
