Galgorm is a front runner in the Down Royal style stakes

Exclusive travel offer for racing fans and fashionistas

Northern Ireland’s most stylish ladies will be jockeying for position at the Charles Hurst Premium Race Evening next month at Down Royal. Unbridled chic will be the order of the day as Northern Ireland’s leading spa resort, Galgorm, gets this year’s event off to a flying start by sponsoring the Best Dressed competition.

Fashion, along with horse racing and first class hospitality, await the thousands heading to the fully-transformed, state-of-the art racecourse on Friday the 12th of September, reinforcing the venue’s position as Northern Ireland’s number one draw for ladies with classic, winning style. Aside from the prestige of being named “Best Dressed” at the event, this year’s winner will also be whisked off for a weekend of four star luxury at the Ballymena resort.

Paul Smyth, General Manager of Galgorm Resort & Spa said; “We are delighted to be part of the Best Dressed Lady competition with Down Royal, and while picking a winner will be tough, we’re looking forward to a great day of racing. Down Royal is synonymous with good taste and style, and the state-of-the-art facilities will provide a perfect backdrop to the glamour of the best dressed event”.

Boasting some of the best facilities in Irish racing, Down Royal has undergone substantial investment over the past few years. General Manager Mike Todd says this day-long event is one of the most hotly-anticipated by race goers here..

“This is one of the highlights of our year, and we’ve worked non-stop to provide a packed day of the best in horseracing and hospitality. It’s one of the most stylish events on the calendar and we look forward to working in partnership with the equally stylish Galgorm Resort & Spa.”

It’s now easier than ever for racegoers to get to and from the venue with an exclusive coach service leaving the city centre an hour before the first race, and returning an hour after the last one.  Departing from College Square North, the £10 return tickets can be booked through the Down Royal website
