Best Dressed Competitions Return to Yorkshire Racecourses

As the Yorkshire flat season continues apace, attention turns to the glamour and style associated with racing as the Ladies’ Days return.

Starting at Wetherby on Tuesday 7th June, each of the nine Yorkshire courses will be hosting a Ladies Day with a best dressed racegoer competition and there are some cracking prizes to be won.

Details of the racecourses best dressed competitions can be found on their website and all are run slightly differently.

But the fun doesn’t stop there as the winner of each best dressed competition will be invited to take part in the Go Racing In Yorkshire Best Dressed Final and this year, there’s a new format, with new partners. Charlotte Russell, General Manager of Go Racing In Yorkshire said,

“We wanted to update the final and this year, the general public will be deciding the best dressed racegoer in Yorkshire. We’re really excited about the new format and involving as many people as possible as well as sharing the style of our racecourse winners to inspire racegoers of the future.

Votes can be cast on the Go Racing In Yorkshire website and there will be links from social media to direct the public.”

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 a pair of his and hers Dubarry boots, plus a pair of RM Williams boots and matching belt from Parnaby’s Malton.

Gilda Brader from Country Huts on the Wolds said,

“Yorkshire is well known for horse racing and given that we are located near the training centre of Malton and close to both Beverley and York racecourses we are delighted to be able to support the Best Dressed Final and look forward to welcoming the winner and their guest for a relaxing break.”

Lisa Wilson-Kallagher from Parnaby’s said,

“Fashion at the races is such a varied and wonderful collection of styles, getting a look together and seeing all the incredible outfits is one of my favourite parts of a day at the races. Our Yorkshire racegoers do very well so it’s a privilege to be involved with their style plans. We’ve got some lovely prizes for the winner and are excited to gift the winners with luxury footwear and accessories.”
