Musselburgh Racecourse’s 10th Stobo Castle Ladies Day is heading for a sell-out in record-breaking time.
With still 11 weeks to go until the 14 June glamour event, the East Lothian course has less than 1,800 briefs remaining, with 6,000 admission tickets already snapped up and all hospitality packages sold out.
And racegoers only have a few days left to take advantage of an Early Bird offer of a £30 admission price, with tickets priced at £35 from 1 April.
Racecourse bosses have been overwhelmed at the runaway success of the event which has attracted maximum capacity crowds in each of the 10 years it has been held.
But this year’s sales have exceeded all expectations with over 6000 tickets booked at the three-months-to go mark, an 85% increase on sales at the same point in 2013.
Musselburgh Racecourse commercial manager, Mary-Ann Sandercock, said: “The rate of sales for Stobo Castle Ladies Day has been truly astonishing this year and we expect to be Sold Out within the next week or so.
“Last year’s event was such an outstanding success that word-of-mouth, combined with some very smart marketing initiatives, have grabbed the attention of thousands of smart women who know they will enjoy a top quality day at Musselburgh’s Ladies Day.
“Our Early Bird discounted admission rate ends at midnight 31 March and with monthly pay packets about to hit people’s bank accounts we expect a very busy weekend which will tip us toward our maximum capacity level and help us achieve the perfect 10.”
Stobo Castle Ladies Day incorporates the William Hill Scottish Sprint Cup – Musselburgh first £100,000 race and the track’s most valuable ever race.
