Newbury Racecourse Gentleman's Day, 26th November, 2010

Newbury Racecourse

The Newbury Racecourse hosted a 6 elite jump races and men's winter style competition in conjunction with Austin Reed-Newbury's first ever fashion partnership offering best dressed man membership to their newly launched Q club.

Approximately 30,000 people were expected to descend on the racecourse for the 3 day fixture which includes the celebrated Hennessy Gold Cup. One of the highlights of the jump racing calendar.

The two people to scout for the best dressed on the racecourse were Amanda (Austin Reed PR Manager) and no other person than Prince Cassius, Britain's best dressed man.

I have to say I was really impressed with the gentlemen they  scouted. They all had their individual style, but at the end of the day the winner had to have the edge, fine tailoring and character in his style.

At 2.15 the contenders were all lined at the Ring Parade where the judges ( Amanda, Prince Cassius and Steve) were going to choose Newbury Racecourse Best Dressed/ Gentleman. At 2.25 the winner was announced.

Even though it was a very cold day, I really enjoyed myself. It's worth going back again but this time I would  prefer to go during the summer season.

My thanks goes to Austin Reed for inviting me to the  
Newbury Racecourse and it is always a pleasure to see the team.
