It’s time to get the outfits ready, make the hairdresser and barber appointments and order the accessories as the Ladies’ Days return to the racing calendar.
The best dressed series starts at Wetherby’s evening meeting on Tuesday, June 13 and finishes at Doncaster during their St Leger meeting in September. The best dressed racecourse winners will then go forward to the Go Racing In Yorkshire best dressed final which will be decided by public vote.
Each of Yorkshire’s nine racecourses will be running a variety of competitions, varying between best dressed lady, best dressed man, best dressed racegoer, best dressed couple and best hat – there really is something for everyone!
Charlotte Russell, General Manager of Go Racing In Yorkshire said,
“Ladies’ Days are so popular across Yorkshire’s courses and each racecourse holds their ladies’ day in their own unique way. The effort that the racegoers put in for the occasion is a sight to behold and it adds a real buzz to the day with the bonus of some great prizes to be won.”
The prize for the winner of the Best Dressed Final is a “Country Getaway”, with a two-night stay for two people in a traditional style shepherd hut at Country Huts on the Wolds, the use of a luxurious Land Rover vehicle for two days from Lloyd Land Rover, York and country attire from Parnaby’s, Malton, plus a day of racing including lunch at a Yorkshire racecourse of the winner’s choice.
Gilda Brader from Country Huts on the Wolds said,
“We look forward to continuing our support of the Go Racing In Yorkshire Best Dressed final. We are based near to the training centre of Malton and close to Beverley and York racecourses making our shepherds huts the ideal getaway for the country lover and racing enthusiast.”
David McIntyre, Head of Business at Lloyd Jaguar Land Rover, York said,

Our opulent vehicles embody style and elegance, ensuring the winner a delightful and stylish journey for their country getaway.”Francesca Rochester, owner of Parnaby’s said,
