Musselburgh Racecourse’s Ladies Day Sells Out in Style

One of Edinburgh’s biggest fashion and sporting events is set to be the social event of the season having sold out yet again, for more than eight years.

After selling out of general admission tickets in March, Musselburgh Racecourse’s annual Stobo Castle Ladies Day sold out more that two weeks in advance, promising to make this year’s meet one of the best yet.

The racecourse, now in its 200th anniversary year, will truly celebrate in style after collaborating with Edinburgh Fashion Week to offer attendees expert styling tips and see the fashion frenzy hit new heights.

The day, which features Musselburgh’s most valuable race, the £100,000 William Hill Scottish Sprint Cup, attracts top names from the world of racing, fashion and celebrity including TV personality Vernon Kay and newly appointed Miss UK.

And it doesn’t stop there as lucky racegoers will also be in with a chance to win a brand new £10,000 car thanks to local car dealership Belmont Wallyford.

Aisling Johnston, Marketing Manager at Musselburgh Racecourse, said: “Stobo Castle Ladies Day always attracts a huge amount of interest and we’re delighted to have sold-out once again.

“We always get to see a fantastic array of outfits and I’m sure this year won’t be any different.

“Teaming up with Edinburgh Fashion Week has been a fantastic addition, and given us even more of an excuse than usual to play up to and flaunt our fashionable side.”

Already known for its style credentials, Stobo Castle Ladies Day sees all attendees dress to impress at Edinburgh’s foremost fashion extravaganza. Trendy racegoers will be able to show off their design creations and be in with a chance of being crowned ‘Queen of Style’.

The spread of luxury packages that have been on offer have enabled many attendees to add an extra element of class to their day from the Picnic Pavilion, giving racegoers a dedicated bar and reserved table, to Champers and Hampers, offering a luxury lunch hamper and plenty of bubbly.

With a packed race-card the day will be capped off by the after-racing party in the Stage Marquee.

Hosted by heart-throb Vernon Kay, the after party will offer all Ladies Day racegoers a chance to unwind after a day of spectacular racing drama and enjoy an exclusive DJ set filled with chart topping tunes.

Aisling added: “The after-party has always been a huge success and, as it’s open to all ticket-holders, we’re sure it will be full yet again with another fantastic attendance at the racecourse.”

Taking place on 11th June, Ladies Day typically sells out months in advance. Racegoers are encouraged to buy early to avoid disappointment and this year’s sales are an indication of why. 

As part of the year-long celebration of the historic racecourse’s 200th anniversary, there will also be a special Bi-Centenary Celebration Raceday on Friday, July 8th.
