Ladies and gents prepare for Redcar’s red carpet event


Ladies and gentlemen across the region are being encouraged to dress to impress for Redcar Racecourse’s hottest event of the year.

Ladies’ & Gents’ Evening on Saturday August 29th is the fashion and social highlight of the racing calendar, with thousands of racegoers expected to turn out to the annual event.

The race day will hold three competitions for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’, ‘Best Dressed Gent’, and ‘Best Dressed Couple’. Valuable prizes have been kindly donated by Market Cross Jewellers, Bakers Tailoring, Chic Hats, Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty, and Eastwood Photography.

Redcar Racecourse’s general manager, Amy Fair expressed her excitement for the event and said: “It’s always a fantastic evening, we’re really looking forward to it!  There are always lots of fabulous outfits and it’s great to see some many people dressing up for their evening at the races.

“Alongside the chance to win some incredible designer prizes in the ‘Best Dressed’ competitions racegoers will enjoy a fun casino, great local band The Persuaders, and a free photo booth.

“If you enjoy wearing your finest frock and smartest suit then this is the event to attend. It’s a perfect way to celebrate any occasion and an ideal opportunity to strut your stuff on the red carpet.”

Competition ‘spotters’ will be mingling with the crowds throughout the evening and will select ten finalists for each of the best dressed competitions.

The ‘Best Dressed Gent’ competition will be judged after the second race with the winner receiving a £400 suit, shirt and tie, a Hugo Boss ballpoint pen, and a gent’s gift pack.

The ‘Best Dressed Lady’ will be announced after the third race and the winner will receive a bespoke hat and matching bag, a Michael Kors watch, a cut and blow dry voucher, gel nails voucher, and gift pack.

The ‘Best Dressed Couple’ competition will be judged after the fourth race and the winners will receive a ladies’ Swarovski necklace and earrings, a men’s Armani watch, a photo shoot with images and print, and a cut and blow dry voucher.

The Ladies’ and Gents’ Evening is the sixth feature meeting of the racecourse this year. The admission gates will open at 3pm and the first race is scheduled to start at 17.20pm.

Admission prices on the night start from £5 per adult with free admission for accompanied children aged 17 and under.  Parties of 10 or more can also save over 20% when they book their Grandstand or Course Enclosure admission tickets in advance.

There are many hospitality options from the Dine & View package in the Crow’s Nest Restaurant to racegoers’ packages including admission, a racecard, food and drink.

The last feature meeting of the season for 2015 will be the Totepool Two Year Old Trophy Day on October 3rd.
