Fashion, Glamour, Racing and a Record Crowd at Ladies Day!

Yesterday was the sixth annual Advertiser Group Ladies Day at Southwell Racecourse and what a day it was! Records had already been broken for advance ticket sales for the event before the gates opened and more people turned up on the day than ever before! More than 6,100 people enjoyed an afternoon packed with fashion, glamour and thrilling racing.

The weather was perfect and racegoers made the most of the lawns and picnic areas enjoying great food, drink and entertainment all afternoon.

The Jacques Vert fashion show at 12.30pm attracted a huge crowd with the catwalk display featuring the coming seasons latest designs for occasion and evening wear.

Racing started at 2.15pm and it was an action packed card with 7 thrilling races. During the afternoon our panel from the Advertiser and Jacques Vert visited all enclosures to select 10 finalists for each of the 3 competitions, Best Shoes, Best Hat and Best Dressed Lady.

Straight after the last race the 3 competitions were held on the main stage behind the Grandstand and the judges had a very difficult decision as all the ladies looked fantastic. Best Shoes was won by Susan Filep from Southwell, the Best Hat award went to Tez Fahey from Grantham and Best Dressed Lady of the day was awarded to Debbie Grogan from Sheffield.

Live entertainment from superb band Battle of the Divas completed the day with most racegoers staying to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine and fantastic live music.
