IT will be an evening of 1920s glamour at Haydock tonight.
The racecourse hosts top class meetings again this weekend with The Halliwell Jones BMW Ladies Evening and The Sandy Lane Stakes/Timeform Jury Raceday.
Friday’s race meeting we go back to the 1920s with our Great Gatsby themed Halliwell Jones BMW Ladies Day that guarantees high class fashion and glamour combined with an enthralling racecard.
‘The Gatsby’ event will feature cocktails, canapés and a swing band. The day’s ‘Best Dressed’ racegoer will be selected and there will be chance to win a BMW of choice for a weekend.
Saturday’s Sandy Lane Stakes/Timeform Jury Raceday will include some of the country's leading horses with a number of exciting entries including last year’s winner of The Timeform Jury Stakes, German trained Amarillo, who returns to defend his title.
Other strong entries include Breton Rock, winner of The Pertemps Network Spring Trophy at Haydock Park earlier this month, and local runner, Garswood, owned by David and Emma Armstrong, who won with Bretherton at Haydock Park last weekend.
Garry Fortune, Haydock Park Racecourse General Manager, said: “Friday’s Ladies Evening always proves to be a great night and this year it will be even better with our 1920’s Great Gatsby themed Halliwell Jones BMW Ladies Day, and the chance for racegoers to win a BMW of their choice for a weekend.
“The fun and top-class racing doesn’t stop there with The Sandy Lane Stakes/Timeform Jury raceday on Saturday, which is one of our highest quality fixtures of the year, and always proves to be a fantastic day out for racegoers.”
