The fascination and charm of the races is only enhanced by the delightful atmosphere of this much celebrated Boodles event.
BOODLES MAY FESTIVAL
Kick starting the summer’s racing season, Chester Races May Festival exhibits exceptional standards of racing talent over the course of three days. This year the races took place from the 7th-9th May, and were filled with glamour and excitement as spectators gathered to watch around this spectacular course.
Day two of the festival played host to the much anticipated Boodles Ladies Day with thousands of glamorous race goers further adding to the atmosphere with striking hats, chic outfits and a sprinkling of enchanting jewels! The last day of this year’s races made for an exciting finale as Panther, co-owned by Michael Owen and Richard Black, pounced to victory in The Boodles Diamond Ormonde Stakes.
Boodles have been sponsors and supporters of Chester Races for many years and The May Festival is a much loved event for the Boodles Team and guests. Regardless of whether you are an expert in recognising your colours and knowing your conditions, the lure of this impressive venue and the adrenalin rush of the races themselves are irresistible.
The history behind the May Festival is in part what gives the event its charm, the heritage behind the races means every winner is proud to be added to the list of outstanding jockeys which is displayed within the racecourse.
