Ladies day is coming to Cheltenham Festival on 14th March 2018
There’s no bigger day appreciating women like the Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day. It is, without any doubt, a place where they can feel relaxed, wear their best ensembles and watch a lot of races, all in several magical hours.
That’s because this day is a way of honouring those women who come and watch the horses, as they have always been a great part of the racing family. It’s also a great nice place to have a drink, chat all day and take some of that pre-spring sun (don’t forget your sun cream!).
Clearly, the main attraction on Wednesday 14th of March will be the dresses, the hats, the boots, the makeup and everything that makes a lady shine. Of course, this is a special day so wear your best, take your time to find the ideal outfit and impress everyone you see.
Even though the Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day doesn’t have an official dress code, there are some implicit rules that you should follow to stand amongst the crowd in a good way. High boots will always be a great option, as well as a hat (some people say it’s a must, although it’s not actually essential) since it’s a great way to catch the eye.
In terms of dresses, there are no limits. Bear in mind, though, they must be tasteful. Try not to show too much flesh if you possibly can. The colors are entirely up to your taste, some pastel and light tones are so nice for a day festival; please double check to combine well with your boots and accessories.
One of the main events on Ladies Day is the Queen Mother Champion Chase, a race that got its name in 1980 as it took place on the Queen Mother’s 80th birthday. The race will take place at 15:30 on 14th, and not only is it the most anticipated event of the day, but one of the best paying options. There are lots of Ladies’ Day betting options and placing a bet is a great way to have fun and maybe turn that day into a full adventure with your new earnings.
The Ladies Day gates will open at 10:30 and the first race, called The Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle, will take place at 13:30, followed by the RSA Steeple Chase. Completing the day we have the Coral Cup Hurdle (A Handicap Hurdle Race), which will be held at 14:50. The Queen Mother Champion Chase follows, and soon after that at 16:10 is The Glenfarclas Cross Country Steeple Chase. Another great race to watch is the Boodles Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle Race (16:50 hours) and to close this marvelous day, the Weatherbys Champion Bumper will be held at 17:30. So take a break from work and enjoy this great opportunity not only to have so much fun, but to make some extra pounds in the process.
