The Best Dressed Lady Competition at Kilbeggan races next Saturday, 8th August at 5.30Pm, will be the most international in recent times, with a touch of Ireland, USA, Britain, and the rest of the world. They say that style is a way to say who you are, without having to speak, but this occasion and prize is so special that only words can describe it.

The winner of the Best Dressed Lady prize will win a fantastic trip to New York, to be personally styled by Irish New York designer Jacqueline Quinn, with a value of €2,500 and including €500 of Zack Lo designer shoes. The winners and their guest will be flown out by British Airways including a return flight and three night’s accommodation for two people in New York. Jacqueline Quinn is one of the most successful designers based in New York and won prizes like the “Best Evening Wear Designer” at the Hollywood Fashion Awards. She will be opening stores in Ireland & Paris in 2016/17. Some of her clients include the singer Estelle and Natasha Beddingfield. This is an occasion not to be missed by any lady with “designs” on winning a unique prize. Helena Flynn (originally from Kilbeggan)who is Head of PR for British Airways in Europe, Asia, Pacific, Middle East, and Africa will be judging the competition. And will be joined by Paris Donnatella Callan, Creative Director for Fashion And Styling Trends (F.A.S.T.). F.A.S.T. is a New York based fashion consultancy company and magazine, which has been noted as “the definitive publication for fashion and trend”.


The Midland’s National day brought a windfall for the punters, as the bookies drowned under the weight of 6 winning favourites or joint favourites and a second favourite -the longest priced at 9/2. The race was a benefit for Gigginstown Stud with Ravished 7/2F winning with Paul Townsend riding, as Bryan Cooper dislocated his thumb in an earlier race. The only danger was previous dual Kilbeggan winner Akorakor also owned by Gigginstown , who fell at the last. Jessica Harrington kept up her recent successful run with Tri na Ceile and Aidan O’Brien trained Carrganog to win the novice chase for J.P.McManus and ridden by the impressive Mark Walsh. Henry de Bromhead won with the useful Danefirth, not knowing that twelve days later he would win the Galway Plate with Shanahan’s Return.

Next Saturday evening will provide yet another great meeting with three sponsored races including the Pig ‘N’ Whistle Pubs and Restaurants New York maiden hurdle, sponsored by John Mahon, New York & Longford; the Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey Mares Novice Hurdle generously sponsored by Kilbeggan Whiskey ® Irish Whiskey; Tom Bermingham Menswear are again sponsoring the bumper : and the Joe Cooney Memorial Hurdle is also sponsored by the Bank House Family in memory of a great contributor to Kilbeggan Races.
