THE glittering opportunity to be crowned ‘Best-dressed Lady’ is returning to its usual date in the Redcar Races calendar on Saturday.

Ladies’ Day couldn’t go ahead in 2020 due to the pandemic, and had to be postponed until a special ‘Ladies Night’ in August last year, when Lisa McArdle raced straight from a nightshift at a bread factory in Wakefield to land the title.

However, one of the most popular days of Redcar’s season is back in its normal June slot for 2022, with a host of fabulous prizes up for grabs alongside a competitive day's racing.

Redcar’s general manager Amy Fair said: “After the disruption of the past couple of years, it’s lovely to be back to normal for Ladies’ Day, which is always one of the highlights of our season.

“We know how much our ladies love to dress up, so we’re expecting a feast of fashion and, although it’s Ladies’ Day, we’re also looking forward to lots of dapper men joining in the fun.”

Redcar-based Betty Leigh Boutique will be showcasing a selection of outfits in the Winners’ Enclosure after the second race.

Later, the Best-Dressed Lady will receive a prize package comprising: Gucci Trademark earrings, necklace and bracelet, from Market Cross Jewellers; plus £100 gift voucher for Skin King Cosmetics; personal shopping experience with £50 gift voucher for Betty Leigh Boutique; and bouquet of flowers.

The winner will also represent Redcar in the Go Racing in Yorkshire grand final.

The runner-up will win a Swarovski Tennis Deluxe necklace and earrings set, plus bracelet, from Market Cross Jewellers; as well as a gift voucher from Orange Kerr Hair and Beauty.

The lady in third place will be presented with a Tree of Life necklace and earrings, from Market Cross Jewellers; and a goodie bag of products from Orange Kerr and Beauty.

The fashion stakes doesn’t end there because the Best-Dressed Lady competition will be followed by the Best Hat Competition, with yet more valuable prizes.

The winner will receive a bespoke hat from Lynne Young Millinery; plus a Swarovski Generation pendant necklace and bangle from Market Cross Jewellers.

The runner-up gets a £150 gift voucher from Market Cross Jewellers, with a £100 voucher for third place.

The first race is at 1.37pm, with the last race at 5.13pm.
