Over the last thirteen years the Down Royal Festival of Racing has revolutionised racing both on and off the track in the north of Ireland. This year the racecourse will be teaming up with fashion heavyweights in 2013 both for prizes and to lead the judging panel for the Ladies Days.

Speaking ahead of the 2012 JNwine.com Ladies Day at Down Royal, Bairbre Power, (Fashion Editor of Irish Independent and Weekend Magazine) said: “Ladies Day is a very necessary occasion  for women – dressing up is not something we get to do very much these days. Down Royal has a reputation for attracting some of the most glamorous race fans in Ireland and I’m really looking forward to seeing all the latest fashion on display at the Festival of Racing.”

In keeping with this, Down Royal opened the Dark Horse Wine Bar & Café for all race goers. The Dark Horse Wine Bar & Café offers champagne, wine, tea & coffee and light deli snacks and with a decked area that’s paddock facing, it’s the perfect backdrop for the fashion forward ladies that attend Down Royal’s Ladies Days to experience the unique atmosphere that only a day’s racing at Down Royal can offer.
