The #FabulousFriday Style Award is always one of the most hard-fought contests of the entire Randox Health Grand National Festival and this year’s renewal was won by Faith Amond from County Carlow in Ireland.

Amond was sporting a pink and red two-piece suit that the judges, Sam Quek, Laura Wright, Andrea Daley, Philip Armstrong, Tony Burke, Rachel Cunningham and Charlotte Perini, all thought was a ‘classic, well put together outfit’ that oozed ‘style and taste’.

Amond is no stranger to the races and comes from a family that are well-connected in the racing industry. She has two sons, one of whom works for Gold Cup-winning trainer Jessica Harrington and the other for Grand National-winning trainer Gordon Elliott.

“I’ve been coming to the Grand National for the past 15 years and it’s a meeting I really enjoy,” said Amond.

“We’re big racing fans and a lot of my family work in the industry. We didn’t go to the Cheltenham Festival this year and decided to make Aintree our big trip instead. I’m glad I did now!”

Amond not only takes home a £1,000 voucher from Outfit and a hair and beauty hamper courtesy of Barbara Daley Hair & Beauty, but she also drives off in a brand new £35,000 black Range Rover Evoque courtesy of Hatfields Land Rover.

She admitted after the competition that she had had her eye on a Range Rover Evoque recently and that she couldn’t have won a more fitting prize.

“I’ve been after a Range Rover like this for quite a while now so I’m delighted I entered!”
