The Festival 2018: From hats to shoes, to scarves and gloves, it’s all about adding a splash of colour to spring on Ladies Day at Cheltenham Racecourse, Wednesday 14th March 2018, for the #ColourMeMarch competition.

This year the competition, exclusively for ladies only, is about bringing colour and style to The Festival™ and you have the chance of winning a brand new MINI ONE CAR from W.O. Lewis and Sytner Solihull as well as other fantastic prizes. Whether you want to show off your best boots, parade your finest hat or give a nod to your favourite horse’s colours, get ready to #ColourMeMarch.

Our Ladies Day ambassador this year, is Miss England 2017, Stephanie Hill. The 22-year-old, who is a keen equestrian rider and studying for a degree in radiotherapy, beat off 117 other competitors to come third in the world at the Miss World contest that took place in China earlier in the year and will be on hand to present the prizes on the day.

For your chance to make it a winning day, all you need to do is either get spotted by one of the racecourse team who will then ask if you’d like to be entered in to the Ladies Day competition, or you can enter yourself in the Ladies day marquee. Winners will be selected at random to win one of the many prizes and announced on the big screen overlooking the parade ring.

Other prizes that will be won on the day include a £2,000 necklace from Boodles, an overnight stay at The Lygon Arms in Broadway with dinner, cocktails, breakfast and spa treatment, an Yvette Jelfs made to order hat worth £700 and more.

Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.

She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.

If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
