KELSO racecourse is busy preparing itself for the final meeting of the season- Ladies Day on Sunday 26th May.
A chance for ladies, and gents, to get a group of friends together and start looking for the right outfit as this is the most popular race meeting at the Border track.
Louise Grey who heads the Marketing team for Kelso Racecourse commented: “Hospitality for Ladies Day has been sold out since March with advanced ticket sales well ahead of last year and entrance tickets still available, we are hopeful of a great day.
“As usual the Best Dressed competitions attract a great deal of interest and we are delighted to have local outfitters Archie Hume associated with the day, sponsoring the Best Dressed Couple.”
James Abbot Marketing Manager for A Hume Country Clothing added: “A Hume Country Clothing are delighted to be part of Ladies’ Day. It is a fantastic event to finish off the season and creates a great atmosphere both at the race course and around the town.” For the third year running, Ladies Day will play host the an Injured Jockeys Fund Ladies Only Charity Flat race- a fundraiser for the “House that Jack Built.”
This project, headed by Jack Berry, is designed to raise money for a Northern based rehabilitation centre for Injured Jockeys and the course is delighted to announce that Sir Alex Ferguson has kindly sponsored the charity race won last year by Jo Foster and trainer Jim Goldie.
Course Managing Director Richard Landale said: “We are delighted that Sir Alex has shown his support in sponsoring the charity race for this incredibly important cause, and hope to raise as much money as possible.”
With the first 200 Ladies through the gates receiving a Free luxury goody bag, Boutique Shopping Arcade, Champagne Lawn, and local band “The Taylor Brothers” playing in the Pavilion Marquee after racing the day promises to end the National Hunts season at Kelso Races on a high.
