Women on top form at Carlisle Racecourse's Ladies Night

Torrential rain failed to spoil the party as Carlisle Racecourse staged a night filled with fancy frocks, flying fillies, boy bands and bookie-bashers.
Have your say
I attended the ladies night at Carlisle races last night and it was awful! We paid for premier tickets and expected a lovely evening. In reality it was the rip off races. Drinks were a fortune and bar queues long, there was nowhere to sit and the racecourse was not prepared or equipped to deal with the numbers of people a ladies day event attracts.........don't even get me started on the toilet queues! After standing for nearly 4 hours we sat on the floor in our fascinators and finery (along with lots of other people!) Unless you had paid for the Â£75 sit down meal, the food choices were limited to chips and gravy or a trek in the rain to the noodle bar! If they want to compete properly with decent ladies day events carlisle racecourse needs to stop pocketing the profits and up its game. Very disappointed and will not be going again.
