Thursday 10th August is Ladies Day, the Social Event of the year at Sligo Races.
Ladies Day, the Social Event of the year at Sligo Races on Thursday August 10th. Once again, we expect to have huge crowds and glamour to beat the band. Our Judge Marietta Doran will be in attendance, and as usual she will give kudos to anyone who has made the effort. There is no formal application – just show up in your finery and be in with a chance.
Flying High on Ladies Day
This year’s overall winner will take to the sky with a Flying Lesson at Sligo Airport sponsored by Sligo Aeronautical Club. She will also take home a fabulous bespoke outfit from Roisin Linnane, a cash prize from Sligo Races along with a bottle of prosecco and a beautiful vintage silver canteen of cutlery from Newbridge Silverware in Kildare.
The Nine Runners Up will each receive: A beautiful piece of Newbridge Silver Jewellery and Bottle of Prosecco.
Judge Marietta Doran commented, “I am delighted to be back judging at Sligo this year, it is my 5th year judging at the track and it’s always such a fantastic evening. I can’t wait to see all the fashion on the day and meet all the ladies. When adjudicating, I look for head-to-toe style, colour and something a little different. I have such a love for fashion myself so really looking forward to seeing all the style on the evening.
It’s also a 7-card National Hunt Meeting with all of our races sponsored by local businesses and the Irish European Breeders Fund. Our corporate rooms are booked to capacity and our hospitality packages in the restaurant are flying out the door. We fully expect capacity numbers on the day, so please come early – the gates open a 3 pm on both days. Ample Car parking facilities are provided in the middle of the track. Buses can set down at the enclosure entrance and then proceed to the car park. For a relaxing enjoyable day there is no better place to be than Sligo Races on Ladies Day.
