Hats and glamour head to Redcar for Ladies’ Day


Ladies are being encouraged to dress up for one of the biggest days in the North East’s racing calendar as Redcar Racecourse’s Ladies’ Day fast approaches.

The annual Ladies’ Day on June 20th is one of the fashion and social highlights in the Tees Valley and this year won’t disappoint as thousands of ladies will get out their finery and glam up for an afternoon at the races.

As is traditional at the racecourse’s Ladies’ Day, there are valuable prizes for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’ and the ‘Best Hat’ with fabulous prizes kindly donated by, Market Cross Jewellers, Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty, Chic Hats, Rae & Rose Bespoke Florists and Eastwood Photography.

The racecourse has also teamed up with Teesside Hospice to showcase a ‘dress for less’ fashion show after the 2nd race at 2.40pm. All of the outfits have been sourced through the Teesside Hospice shops proving that you can look good without spending a fortune.

Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair enthused: “Flowers, bubbly and fancy hats . . . what more could a girl want? There’s certainly no need for Royal Ascot when there is Ladies’ Day at Redcar Races! Every lady should dress to impress because they’ll be in with the chance of some great prizes.

“If you’re more of a social race-goer than a racing aficionado, then Ladies’ Day is the day to come racing. It’s a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply a great excuse to buy a new outfit.”

Competition ‘spotters’ will mingle with the crowds throughout the afternoon and select the ten finalists for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’ and ‘Best Hat’ competitions.

The lady judged to be the ‘Best Dressed’ will be invited to go on to the Go Racing In Yorkshire Grand Final at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday 24 October.

The prizes for the ‘Best Dressed’ ladies are: (1st) Michael Kors watch, Michael Kors bracelet, Michael Kors pendant, Michael Kors earrings and a bouquet; (2nd) Swarovski watch and gift pack; (3rd) Guess heart necklace and gift pack.

The prizes for the ladies with the ‘Best Hat’ are: (1st) A bespoke fascinator, makeover photoshoot for two, including hair and makeup styling, cut, colour & blow dry and a bouquet; (2nd) Swarovski bracelet; (3rd) Swarovski earrings.

The day also caters for the little ladies in your life as Page2Stage are bringing along Cinderella and friends who will be swirling and twirling in their ‘best dressed’ for a day fit for a princess.

Ladies’ Day is the second of a two-day meeting at Redcar Racecourse which starts on Friday 19th June. The first race on Friday is scheduled for 2.20pm, with admission gates open just after midday. On Saturday – Ladies’ Day – the first race of seven is at 2.05pm.

The remainder of the season for 2015 is jam packed with other feature racedays including the Help for Heroes Family Fun Day on 19th July, Caribbean Carnival Day on 8th August and Ladies’ and Gents’ Evening on 29th August.
