Hot on the heels of Royal Ascot the previous week, Newton Abbot is offering a more affordable and accessible experience for horseracing fans in the South West.
The racecourse is keen to emphasise that all racegoers, regardless of gender or ticket price band, have an equal opportunity to enjoy the spectacle that is Ladies’ Day and compete for the highly-coveted ‘Best Dressed’ titles.
Despite the name, both ladies and gents are invited to enjoy Ladies’ Day and event sponsors St Austell Brewery have provided an unforgettable prize for the Best Dressed Gent competition to encourage the gents to compete in the fashion stakes – a day’s brewing with the 2012 Regional Brewer of the Year.
Patrick Masterson, Managing Director at Newton Abbot Racecourse said: “Ladies’ Day is always one of the most highly-anticipated fixtures of the racing season.”
“Once again we’ve taken steps to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy their day with friends and family, despite the continued financial hard times.”
“Regardless of whether our racegoers have tickets for the VIP Marquee, hospitality boxes or Paddock and Course Enclosures, everyone will be able to take part in the excitement of the day.”
“Since the introduction of our free entry for students promotion, this year students will also be able to enjoy Ladies’ Day free of charge. It’s certainly a fantastic way to celebrate the end of term and exam season.”
“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of the companies who have donated an incredible list of prizes for our charity raffle and highly-anticipated Best Dressed competition plus, of course, our event sponsors St Austell Brewery.”
Ladies’ Day will take place at Newton Abbot Racecourse on Tuesday 26th June, with the first race starting at 6:30pm.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.newtonabbotracing.com or by calling 01626 353 235. Tickets will also be available on the gate on the day.
