On Friday 3 August, Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse will host the much-anticipated annual Ladies Day fixture. Expect glitz and glamour on and off the track, all in the beautiful surroundings of the North Wales countryside.
A key focus on the day will be the Ladies Best Dressed Competition and many fashionable entries are expected. This year, prizes on offer include Spa Treatments at Old Port Spa, Aber Falls Gin and Golden Square Shopping Centre gift vouchers. The total sum of prizes tops £500!
Ladies are invited to compete in the style stakes, alongside enjoying some top-class racing action, by simply having their photograph taken by one of our best dressed team on the Paddock Lawn at the Best Dressed area between 11.30am - 3.00pm and entering their details*. All competition entrants will receive an electronic photo of their entry pose as a memento and an online gallery of all the entries will be available online post event.
The stylish panel of judges are made up of Fiona Harrington-Wright, co-owner and founder of Old Port Spa and Ian Cox, Centre Director for Golden Square Shopping Centre in Warrington. Finalists will be selected and contacted before 3.30pm to make their way to the Parade Ring for the big reveal at 4pm. It’s not just about the outfit, judges are looking for the whole package. So, dress to impress, make a maximum effort and show creativity in coordinating your raceday outfit.
Following a short break in racing throughout the summer, the course looks forward to national hunt racing making a welcomed return to the track. A busy card of seven races commences at 1.30pm with the Close Brothers Mares' Maiden Hurdle Race. The feature race of the day is the Fraser Wealth Management Handicap Steeple Chase (0-135), accounting for plenty of action throughout the afternoon.
