Go Racing In Yorkshire Best Dressed Lady Final

The Go Racing In Yorkshire Best Dressed Lady Final was held at Doncaster Racecourse today, Saturday, October 23, bringing together the best dressed lady winners from Yorkshire’s Racecourses over the summer racing season.

The competition, sponsored by, Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel and Incognito, Bawtry was a very tight contest, but eventually a winner was decided upon unanimously.

Charlotte Russell, General Manager of Go Racing In Yorkshire said,

“It was a delight to be able to host the Ladies Days this year and to welcome the winners to Doncaster.  Racegoers have missed the opportunity to get dressed up for a day at the races and it has been very clear that the appetite for Best Dressed Lady competitions is as keen as ever.”

The winner was Lucy Davies, a milliner from Southwell, who qualified at York Racecourse during the Ebor Meeting.  Lucy wore a pale blue dress with mock coat, trimmed with white satin and a white satin belt with bow, from House of Mooshi.

She wore a matching hat made by herself and white shoes with bow detail from Ted Baker and bag from Veromoda.

Lucy said,

“I was absolutely blown away to have been chosen as the winner, I was up against some very elegantly dressed ladies and the prizes are amazing.  I knew I had the right dress as I felt emotional when I put it on, which made me realise it was the dress to wear to the final.

It was so lovely to be able to make a hat for myself, rather than a customer and being able to get matching fabric was the icing on the cake.

It’s been a great day chatting with the other ladies and enjoying the occasion.”

Lucy’s prizes include a vintage diamond ring from, a two night stay at the Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant hotel, including a luxury fruit basket and Espa gift bag, champagne and chocolates on arrival, dinner in the Garden Restaurant dining from the Table D’Hote menu and full English Breakfast and a clothing voucher from boutique Incognito, in Bawtry.
