“Ladies Day”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

An exciting day out. Time to get your best dress out and have a great time. Plenty of food outlets and bars. Very crowded but quite well organized. You can also have a flutter on the horses.

“RaceDay mayhem!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

What a wonderful day at the races. Ladies can get their new hats and gents in their suits. A great day out and if you bet both ways..then a winning or two can be yours.
