Co Down woman Kirsty Farrell was way out in front in the style stakes at Down Royal yesterday lifting the Best Dressed crown.

Kirsty’s eye-catching outfit caused a trackside flurry at yesterday’s well-attended fixture to secure her the title of Best Dressed.

Earning praise from the fashion judges who loved her contemporary cream, red and black fitted pencil dress, it was Kirsty’s headpiece that turned the most heads. The dartboard-inspired fascinator was complemented by simple black accessories and a side ponytail.

Mike Todd, Manager at Down Royal Racecourse said: “At Down Royal we’re all about creating great fun as well as great horse racing and the Magners Derby Day combines sport and sociability with unique panache.”
