This evening (Monday, the 10th of July), racing and fashion meet when Roscommon Racecourse stages their annual SuperValu Ladies Day.
Lifestyle, fashion and beauty influencer, Pam Richardson-Hoare has been confirmed as judge, and six SuperValu stores in Roscommon have come together to sponsor Ladies Day, which has become one of Roscommon’s most popular race meetings.
The winner of the best dressed competition will walk away with a top prize of €1,200, while the nine runners-up will each receive €100.
The following SuperValu shops are sponsoring the event: Fleming’s SuperValu in Roscommon, Smith’s SuperValu in Monksland, Glancy’s SuperValu in Carrick-on-Shannon, Keane’s SuperValu in Lanesboro, McGuinness’ SuperValu in Strokestown, and Cahill’s SuperValu in Castlerea.
Limerick native Pam Richardson-Hoare, now based in Galway, said, “I love the social aspect of going racing, dressing up, and having a great day out with my friends, so I’m really thrilled and honoured to be judging the SuperValu Ladies Day at Roscommon Races.”
“The style at Roscommon is always outstanding, and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing all the summer style!”
There will be some high class racing on the day too; it’s an all-jumps card and Roscommon Racecourse have what is always a well contested novice hurdle set to take place. Finally, for the day that’s in it, the card will end with a ladies bumper.

“It’s one of our most popular race days every summer. We are looking forward to welcoming Pam to Roscommon and everyone else next Monday, and we wish her all the best picking the finalists and overall winner!”
