Ladies Day is always one of the biggest and most anticipated of the year.

This years guest judge is Trishauna Archer from the Beat Breakfast Show. Our Ladies Day sponsors are Lyrath Estate and  MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre in Kilkenny. The winner will receive shopping vouchers to the value of €1,000 in MacDonagh Junction and 2 nights B&B with one evening meal plus a spa treatments stunning Lyrath Estate. All you have to do is come looking your best and you are in with a chance.

Ladies Day Marquee

Our Ladies Day Marquee will be rocking from early with a DJ from 12.30 to 4.30 followed by live music from Shane O’Dwyer. The drinks will flow with a prosecco bar plus a Ballykeefe Gin Bar. This year we have added a free selfie mirror with photos printed to take home.

Best Dressed Tractor

Not only will be looking for a Best Dressed Lady but also a Best Dressed Tractor! That’s right, a tractor run will culminate at Gowran Park in the bottom car park and we will choose a Best Dressed Tractor. The three best dressed tractors will be displayed close to the race course on the day.
