Ladies Days are very popular in the UK. However, if you have never been to one, here are a number of reasons to break the habit of a lifetime:
1. Ladies Days are one the highlights of the social calendar. Ladies Day at Aintree, Royal Ascot, and the Cheltenham Festival are a huge media spectacle. Even if you do not attend one of the big three, you will still have a fantastic time.
2. A day at the races gives you the perfect opportunity to take part in some retail therapy. You have to go hunting for the perfect dress and shoes as well as having your hair and nails done.
3. Ladies day truly is a spectacle, with so many women making the effort to look incredible. You may even see some celebrities! The Manchester United team are often spotted at Chester Races!
4. There is nothing better than relaxing in the sun and, with nearly all of the 60 racecourses hosting a Ladies Day, you’ve got no excuse for not dressing up and having a fantastic outing.
5. It isn’t just about the horses; food and drink packages are available as well as jewellery, clothes, and make-up stalls – more than enough to keep you occupied!
6. The beauty of horseracing is you do not have to be an expert to lay a bet; you just walk over to the Betfair stall or another track bookie and pick who you fancy.

7. Not only do you get to dress up, you can actually be rewarded for it. Most courses have prizes for the best dressed and the best hat, so there are plenty of reasons to make the effort and look stunning on Ladies Day.
8. Group discounts are often available, making it the perfect place for a hen party. More money in the pocket equates to more champagne.
9. A day at the races is a rare experience that you may do once a year or once in a lifetime. Instead of going for a meal or a few drinks with your girlfriends, do something different and go to the races.
10. It can be fun, the thrill of watching your horse thunder round the course is captivating. No matter how small the bet, there is something quite gratifying of backing a winner.
