Winners of this category will receive fantastic prizes, including a table at the Gok Fashion Brunch 2019, a fabulous group spa day at the Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, a corporate team building day at The Playground and much more.
Once again, there is high quality racing on the track with the fillies and mares taking centre stage in the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes and the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes.
The final day of The July™ is all about the Darley July Cup. This Group 1 Race is one of the most valuable and prestigious sprint races in the world and the winner is often acknowledged to be the best sprinter in Europe. There’s further excitement with the climax of The Style Awards: the Best Dressed Couple competition. Coordinated and stylish partners could be in with a chance of winning thousands of pounds worth of prizes. The competition is free to enter for all racegoers. Saturday is also a great day for families. Kids under the age of 18 are welcome FREE in all enclosures across all three days.
