Make a date with St Austell Brewery Ladies’ Day

The social event of the year is nearly upon us with just days to go until the excitement and glamour of St Austell Brewery Ladies’ Day returns once again to Newton Abbot Racecourse.

This year Ladies’ Day will take place on Tuesday 22 August. The action begins at 17.30 with the first race, the Babbacombe Scaffolding ‘National Hunt’ Novices’ Hurdle getting the event off to a flying start.

Tickets are still available for the Paddock and Course enclosures, available online or directly from the racecourse office in advance. Tickets will also be available at the gate on the day, which opens at 15.30.

This year’s main Ladies’ Day sponsor is St Austell Brewery who will be providing their award-winning brews throughout the late afternoon and evening. In the VIP Marquee in the centre of the course, guests will be treated to a fashion show and goodies from local department store, Austins, which has once again partnered with the racecourse on its most glamourous day of the year.

Patrick Masterson, Managing Director of Newton Abbot Racecourse, said: “The team and I really look forward to Ladies’ Day every year: our racegoers make a real effort to dress up and it gives the racecourse a completely different atmosphere to our other fixtures.

“We are delighted to be working with St Austell Brewery and Austins Department Store once again this year and are looking forward to welcoming our racegoers to one of the most highly anticipated social dates of our racing season.”

Tickets for Ladies’ Day are on sale now at our online ticket store. Gates open at 15.30 ahead of the first race at 17.30. For further information, please call 01626 353235 or visit the racecourse website.
