The GCA Ladies Race day took place at Stratford Upon Avon this year.
The weather earlier in the week gave way to a dry and bright day, although the going was somewhat soft underfoot (more of a concern for the ladies in high heel shoes than the horses).
As is always the risk on these occasions, advice was sought on suitable horses and riders to bet on, money was bet, and money duly was lost however there is always the excitement of thinking your 100-1 outsider may just romp home!!!
However an excellent lunch and good company made up for any loses on three legged horses and everyone clearly enjoyed the day. All of the Ladies attending the event were presented with flowers and a corsage sponsored by Mark Seekings. (Pictured)
