Killarney Races Here We Come!

 The Killarney Races - 16th to 19th of July 

 

I am delighted that I will soon be visiting Ireland’s most Scenic Racecourse on 19th July, where I am very excited about judging Ladies Day with Yvonne Keating.

I hear there is a great week of entertainment, starting on Monday with Kenny’s Magic Show in the Kids Zone, Claire’s Pet farm and Stilt Walkers. Best of all, all families in the Kids Zone will be in with a chance to win a magical family break to Disney Land Paris! Perhaps they can fit me in their suitcase ........

Tuesday features the best of National Hunt and Flat racing, and on Wednesday I am excited that some of the 2012 International Roses will be in attendance to present the prize of the aptly named Rose of Tralee International Festival Ladies Flat Race.  

Ladies Day on Thursday is the highlight of the July Racing Festival, and is considered by many to be one of the most prestigious Ladies Day on the racing calendar. The fashion and style stakes are always high for the Dawn Dairies sponsored competition and myself and fellow judge Yvonne Keating will be keeping an eye out for ladies who are elegant with a great sense of style and who stand out from the crowd. The winners of the Queen of Fashion and the Most Stylish Hat competition will enjoy a luxury trip to one of the fashion capitals of Europe, Paris or Milan, and each will receive a specially commissioned crystal vase.  

The Killarney Race Festival features 28 races, generously sponsored by local, national and international businesses.  There is an impressive total prize fund of over €260,000 on offer which is sure to attract runners from Ireland’s top stables. 

See you there!
