Race season is on it’s way! Yes, Cheltenham and the Grand National will soon be upon us, bringing an array of weird and wonderful style from racegoers and celebrities alike. For fashion watchers, race season is always eagerly awaited, whether you follow elegant royal style, or like to look at the more interesting and colourful looks of the WAGS and wannabees who seem drawn to Aintree.

I’m never sure whether the lure of race season is the chance to have a little flutter and maybe win a few pounds, or the chance to dress up. It is probably a little bit of both, tied in with the chance to people watch too. Whatever your thoughts, if you are planning to attend the races this year, then a voucher towards the cost of your outfit, or towards the cost of your picnic basket, would probably be most gratefully accepted.

  1. Closest I’ve got to going to the races was a couple of conferences at Newmarket Race Course!

  2. No i haven’t been to the races, I would love too though, my fiance and I like a flutter on the horses at the weekend when he isn’t working, I win more than he does xxx

  3. Have you ever been to the races? If so, which one? . . . just the once, to our local racecourse at Chepstow, would love to go again

  4. Yes I have been a few times and the answer to keeping warm and fashionable is to wear layers. Shoes are an issue and usually end up wearing boots.

  5. I spent two days at the Goodwood Festival once, always wanted to go again. Great fun.

  6. Yes I’ve been to a few at Huntingdon and Cheltenham for The Gold cup to celebrate my dad’s 70th.

  7. No, just visited one to use the conference centre for a course while I was teaching 🙂

  8. I’ve been to a few local race nights at Wolverhampton Race Course but never to a proper event

  9. No, I’ve never been to the races. I don’t know anything about racing or betting and have a lot more interest in the outfits and hats that are worn to the races.

  10. No Ive never been to the races. I do enjoy checking out ladies day fashion on tv tho.

  14. I have been to Sandown a few times when there has been a concert afterwards. I’ve found it enjoyable and no need to worry about dress code

  15. Yes Chester many years ago and had tickets for Royal Ascot last year but didn’t make it there sadly!

  16. No, I never have – it’s not really something that appeals to me – but I do like the idea of dressing up!

  17. No I’ve not been yet. Love the idea of getting dressed up and heading out with friends though x

  18. Went many years ago to a race meeting at Ascot – great day out for work!

  19. No, always used to watch the horses on the telly though, esp over the jumps. Not so keen on flat racing but used to love it when the Derby was run on a wednesday as I could stay home from school and watch it.

  20. Ive only ever been to the races at Gt Yarmouth on a family day, so no dressing up for it

  21. I have been to Hereford races a few years ago and a boxing day races at Exeter racecourse once.

  22. Newcastle – when I was 9 years old, had a great time playing in the lifts as I remember.

  23. I went the races with my Dad at Windsor, many years ago. About 15 years ago, we went to Towcester races, which is near to our home.

  24. I love right near Warwick Racecourse although i haven’t been for a while, i used to go a lot as a child. My Dad was very fond of the Races he even had his ashes scattered there x

  25. No, not yet. I’d love to though as I imagine it would be great fun 🙂
    Thanks for a super giveaway x

  26. Yes I have been plenty of times as I grew up in Liverpool. Never been in the `posh` part though.

  27. No, never been to a horse race. Would love to one day though, the buzz and excitement of the day looks rather unique and unforgettable 🙂

  28. I’ve been to Lingfield races with friends from work. It was really good

  29. I’ve been to Cheltenham and Ascot but I wouldn’t go now as there are so many horses injured or killed

  30. I have never been to the races before but I would love to go one day to experience what it is like.

  31. Ive been to Chester races – but always the cheap seats …. not even a seat!

  32. Not been to races but would love to have chance to dress up and go x

  33. No, I haven’t ever attended a race meeting, but I’d love to one day

  34. I’ve never been to the races and do not plan to. I do not like the fact that each racing season, lots of horses fall, injure themselves and are then put down.
