How to get noticed at the races

Angela and I used to have a rule when entering Fashions on the Field: it didn’t necessarily matter if we won or lost (ok, it kind of did), but everything was fine as long as we got “papped”. I’m sure this is painting us to be self-obsessed, scene-stealing, D-list wannabes, but one of our prime...

Snapshots from Glorious Goodwood: Days 3 and 4

While Royal Ascot is known for its glamour, pomp and ceremony, Glorious Goodwood is celebrated for almost the opposite reasons. Goodwood, based in the beautiful surrounds of Sussex, is loved for its relaxed elegance and garden party-like atmosphere. Although the dress code is much simpler than Ascot’s – requiring a jacket and tie, cravat or...

Snapshots from Chantilly

France’s most prestigious race for fillies, the Prix de Diane, is held every year on the Sunday before Royal Ascot at one of the most scenic and picturesque racecourses in the world, Chantilly.

Royal Ascot is over for yet another year, and as we reflect on the five-day feast of racing, we compile our list of hits and misses for the carnival.
