Thousands of women from across Doncaster and beyond came out dressed up to the nines for the social highlight of the annual St Leger Festival.
Over 16,000 people travelled to Town Moor in their finest ensembles for Ladies’ Day at Doncaster racecourse today.
The hotly contested best-dressed competition is always one of the highlights of the annual event - which this year was won by Kirsty Booth, of Bessacarr.
The 26-year-old donned a stylish monochrome two-piece with black and white striped detailing on the top, teamed with a striking black hatinator and elegant white shoes.

Doncaster ladies did the town proud, with second and third place in the best-dressed competition also going to Danum women.
Leesa Smickersgill, of Barnby Dun, took second place with a home-made floor length black and white patterned number, with a splash of orange thrown in.
Bessacarr girl, Kaeti Ryland, came third with an eye-catching cerise dress with lace detailing, teamed with a black and cerise hat to match.
Abbi Pagin, dressed in a floral number from her sister’s Tickhill boutique, Fine Fillies, was among those making the most of the September sunshine at this year’s Ladies’ Day.
“We’ve been having a lovely day, the weather has stayed nice,” said Abbi, of Brookside Walk, Bircotes.
The 28-year-old continued: “Everyone looks amazing, there’s some incredible outfits!
“We’ve placed a few bets and I’m feeling quite lucky!”
Birthday girl, Sian Collinson, chose Ladies’ Day as the venue for her 30th birthday celebrations.
She told The Free Press: “I come every year because there’s always a great atmosphere, and thought it would be a good excuse to get dressed up.”
