Lady Luck Shines On Hansel's Race Day on Wednesday 24th May 2017

There was no need for a steward’s enquiry - this year’s Hansel Race Day was officially the best ever according to guests.

The event, held at Ayr Racecourse on Wednesday, 24th of May, was a smash hit with everyone and helped to raise an incredible £17,138.70!

More than 180 people donned their most glamorous outfits for the event, which kicked off with a drinks reception overlooking the race-course and a four course lunch in the Chancellor restaurant in the Princess Royal Stand.

Guests then watched the midweek action featuring some of the country’s top jockeys and their trainers, enjoying the sunny weather.

One of the big highlights of the day was the Grand Prize Draw for a weekend for two in Prague which was won by Lisa Neilson from Worksmart Contracts who were celebrating 15 years in business.

Auction prizes up for grabs included a gin afternoon tea for four courtesy of the Red Bus Bistro; two VIP tickets for James Arthur donated by QTS; hospitality at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open for two people; afternoon tea and pamper day for two in the new spa at Lochgreen House Hotel gifted by Costley & Costley.

Guests finished the day with afternoon tea, before dancing the night away to the sounds of Fabulous Fusion in The Princess Royal Suite.
