It may be eight months away but Musselburgh Ladies Day has got off to a flying start with 400 tickets snapped up in the first week on sale.
The East Lothian course has switched Scotland’s premier Ladies Day from its traditional Saturday berth in early June to a Friday afternoon. (June 18)
And the move seems to have gone down well with early birds determined not to miss out on the mini-Ascot race day which has been a capacity sellout in each of the last three years.
Musselburgh Racecourse commercial manager, Sarah Montgomery, said: “We are sure the move to Friday afternoon will prove a big winner with race goers and early sales figures seem to back that up.
“Next June may seem a long way away but with 400 tickets gone in the first week we are confident we can make it four sell-outs in a row. Anyone wishing to book marquee or restaurant tickets would be advised to do so now.”
All hospitality boxes in the Queen’s Stand have been provisionally booked but Musselburgh say they can cater for other corporate guests in the Epperston Restaurant which overlooks the finishing line.
Other packages, including a Champers and Hamper ticket and marquee hospitality briefs, are also proving popular.
Musselburgh will shortly announce plans to host its richest ever race day on Saturday, June 5 (Derby Day) which will include a top quality handicap which will catch the attention of the UK’s top owners and trainers.
