Aintree Grand National Ladies Day, Runners and Riders

Good news for race goers that, unike Royal Ascot, there is no official dress code at Antree so gals can go for high fashion and furlong winning style, the more colourful dresses and flamboyant hats the better which is why its known as 'Fabulous Friday'. Looks like lots of high thigh slit sleek body hugging dresses and huge flower petal design hats are winning the day. The Iris inspired dark blue and yellow outfit was stunning. Also noticed the cute Black and white spot mini dress worn with a huge brim matching hat and a flora and fauna pink blossom print trouser suit teamed with a simple fascinator and butterfly design leather bag. . Meanwhile the guys can tone it down with suits or smart, trousers, shirt, waistcoat and tie ...or traditional equestrian style tweed jacket and (Peaky Blinders style) flat cap......or not.

Ladies Day is held on a Friday, the second day of the Grand National. An exciting day, attended by the 'hoi palloi', celebrities, fashionistas and sporting icons. Watch out for famous faces amongst the 45,000 crowd. I'll be watching the drama unfold on TV. Hold on to your hats looks like a breezy day ahead. Good luck to all the runners and riders, stay safe.
"Grand National Ladies Day 2024 is expected to see both attendance and anticipation levels ramping up from the opening day, with high calibre races to bet on in a party atmosphere. The top-class racing starts at 1.40pm, and includes seven races, as attention is shared with off the track activities like the ‘Style Award’. Style Ambassadors mingle with the crowds in the Red Rum Garden to find the winner, with big prizes like cars, holidays and cash up for grabs. It’s clear that Grand National Ladies Day is a hugely popular day on the UK jumps racing calendar."
