As ever, a very enjoyable day at Ladies Day at Royal Adlestrop yesterday. Around 60 members of the Adlestrop Club and owners enjoyed a wonderful lunch and fantastic racing.   Many thanks to all those who made such an effort to dress in the theme of Ireland for a charity competition.

Best dressed went to Club member Rhiannon Gadsby Evans, whilst the worst dressed went to owner Brian Duckett who looked similar to an IRA sympathiser.

This year we also had a prize for the best worst dressed person and that went to Club member Bob Johnson, who as ever made a great effort to come with an outfit that looked as though he was being carried by a. leprechaun for the whole afternoon.

The Fred Cooke Cup for the winner of the tipping competition this year, was a draw between Peter Hepworth and Richard Phillips. The money was split –  however Peter takes home the trophy which I’m sure his wife Anne will look after very well next year.

A fun afternoon which raised a few quid for some good charities – many thanks to all.
