Racing and fashion enthusiasts arrived in their droves at Leopardstown Racecourse today for the much-anticipated Ladbrokes Dublin Chase, one of the highlights at the Dublin Racing Festival.
Ladbrokes hosted a special VIP luncheon to mark the kick-off of the 2023 season in the 1888 Suite at the course. Nicola McGeady, Head of PR for Ladbrokes was joined by champion jockey Paul Townend to provide insights on the form and odds around some of the favourites, as well as an outsider or two.
Spotted enjoying the track atmosphere were Love Island star Matthew McNabb, Limerick hurling star Declan Hannon and his Today FM presenter fiancé Louise Cantillon.
Glamorous model and TV presenter Glenda Gilson and her husband Rob McNaughton were also spotted enjoying a day at the races.
Miss Ireland 2022 Pamela Uba and the current Miss Ireland Ivanna McMahon stunned with both ladies opting to support this seasons style trend of colour blocking with prints.
Commenting, Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: The Dublin Racing Festival is one of our favourite events of the year as it really kicks off the season in some serious style. The atmosphere is always second to none and it was great to be joined in the Ladbrokes suite by legends from the racing world, but also some familiar faces from the world of sport, TV and fashion! Congratulations to all winners today and here’s to a great year ahead!
