Gentlemen to Up the Stakes for Marshes Ladies Day

Published on 10th April 2019

Competition in the glamour stakes will reach a new high at Dundalk Stadium on Sunday April 14 when a Best Dressed Gentleman prize will be added to the accolades on offer at the acclaimed Marshes Shopping Centre sponsored Ladies Day.

Gates will open at 12 noon for racegoers as some of the country’s best dressed couples descend on Dundalk Stadium for the first race of Marshes Ladies Day at 2.00pm.

The event has grown to become one of the most enjoyable and glamourous days of the year on the Irish racing calendar.

There will be intense competition in the stands, parade and betting rings as well as on the track as renowned award-winning bloggers Funky Fashion Frolics and fellow award-winner and much-lauded bespoke makeup artist Rose Kirk judge the north east’s annual style stakes.

Marshes has provided a top prize of €3,000 for the Best Dressed Lady* and a €500 gift card and goodie-bag for the Best Dressed Gentleman. The top five best dressed ladies will also receive a Marshes goodie-bag.

Live music from the ever-popular Sugartown Road will follow the day’s racing during which children’s entertainment will ensure a wonderful day out for all the family.

“This is the eleventh year of Marshes Shopping Centre’s partnership with Dundalk Stadium for Ladies Day,” said Centre manager Seán Farrell.

“During that time, the event has grown to become one of the most glamorous and popular days on the Irish racing calendar.

“It promises to be another wonderful day out with some superb racing and enjoyable activities for everybody.”

According to Jean Clerkin, Sales and Marketing Executive at Dundalk Stadium, the event, which has been moved from its usual month of July to April this year, is the perfect way to kick-off the Easter holidays.

“We are delighted to have Marshes Shopping Centre continue as the partner for our prestigious Ladies Day, offering an exciting race day experience for the whole family,” she said.

“We are looking forward to the addition of a prize for the Best Dressed Gentleman this year.”
