Haydock Park Racecourse is excited to announce an impressive package of prizes including a chance to win a £2,000 holiday at one of the most glamorous days in the North West’s racing calendar, the Betfred Rose of Lancaster Stakes on Saturday, August 12.
One of the most elegant days out, Ladies Day at the Lancashire track will be filled with fashion, style and music alongside the fabulous Betfred Rose of Lancaster Style Stakes competition.
Olympic Gold Medallist and Jockey Club North West ambassador, Sam Quek will head up the Style Stakes judging panellist alongside Betfred representative, Caroline Davies and Haydock Park’s committee member, Jemima Ockleston.
Ladies and gentleman can enter the ‘Most Stylish Individual’ to have a chance of being crowned the winner of the Betfred Rose of Lancaster Style Stakes and win a £2,000 holiday voucher, with more prizes to be announced soon.
In addition to the most stylish individual, there will be an award for the “Most Stylish Group” who will win a VIP hospitality experience at Ladies Day at the Randox Health Grand National Festival on April 13, courtesy of Betfred.
Jason Fildes, General Manager of Haydock Park said: “The Rose of Lancaster Stakes Ladies Day is one of my favourite days in the racing calendar; it’s always great to see everyone make such an effort and enjoy a stylish day out at Haydock.
“It’s a pleasure to have Olympic Star and Jockey Club North West ambassador Sam Quek headlining the panel of judges this year and we are excited to be hosting such a glamorous Style Stakes competition.”
On the day, ladies and gentleman enter the competition by having a picture taken in a branded style pod located near the Kauto Star Statue within the racecourse; all entrants will also receive a souvenir photograph to take away.
Not only will the day be centred around the latest fashion trends and style but also by world class horse racing. The popular Ladies Day will feature one of the richest Ladies race run in Europe, The Betfred Haydock Park Ladies Derby as well as the famous Rose of Lancaster Stakes, both live on ITV Racing. Last year, Royal Artillery trained by John Gosden won the Grade 1, Rose of Lancaster Stakes whilst Emma Sayer had a successful win in the Ladies Derby on I Am Not Here trained by her mother, Dianne Sayer.
2016 saw the inauguration of the development award, a £20,000 prize designed to provide an opportunity for personal development and professional support for female jockeys in their racing career. Emma Sayer successfully won the award last year in a nail-biting finish against Rachel Richardson, who was also in the running for the life changing prize. This year, the unique award will be presented to a lady jockey who rides a winner at Carlisle’s #AmazingMonday fixture on Monday 7th August and then goes on to win the Betfred Ladies’ Trophy Handicap Stakes at Haydock Park on Saturday 12th August.
After racing, BBC Radio DJ, Jo Whiley will be performing a Party in the Paddock and the Makerfield Lawn stage will see local band, ‘The Soundettes’ entertaining the crowds during the afternoon of racing.
