Widely renowned as ‘Ladies Day’ at the Galway Festival, Thursday combines the very best in racing and fashion for the pinnacle of the summer racing calendar. The first of eight races goes off at 1:50pm on a card that sees the ‘Galway Guinness Hurdle Handicap’ – the richest National Hunt race in Ireland – run over a distance of two miles with the mouth-watering prize fund of €300,000. Racing coverage will be live on RTE and At the Races. All 8 races on the card are sponsored by Guinness. ‘Ladies Day’ has always been the most visually sumptuous of our Festival events with the opportunity to socialise and show off your sartorial style. You could be awarded the ultimate accolade of being voted a winner in the g Hotel & Spa Best Dressed Competition and Best Hat Competition! There is an envy-inducing €10,000 prize for the winner of the g Hotel & Spa Best Dressed Lady competition and €2,000 prize for the Best Hat competition. Throughout the day, there will also be live music on-course.  What could possibly keep you away on this very special day?
