Al Shaqab Lockinge with Ladies Days, Music and Summer Fun
Our Group 1 showpiece, the Al Shaqab Lockinge with Ladies Day returns for 2022, and this year, a Jubilee year, we want to make it a celebration about all our leading ladies – you! An ongoing tradition in British horse racing that has been the pinnacle of summer social calendars for generations, get ready to be part of a day which is about styling it out in your own way.
As part of a progressive vision of Ladies Day, we will also be championing a first for the industry with the recent launch of a female race commentary initiative which will see aspiring female broadcaster, Dani Jackson commentate on the first race of the day in celebration Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee to raise funds for the Injured Jockeys Fund.
Additionally, racegoers will have the chance to hear from some leading female sporting figures with their Panel of Pioneers which will take place before racing and will feature, Lioness captain, Katie Zelem, Gold medalist, Eve Muirhead and leading jockey Hollie Doyle, talking about their personal journey into their sport.
The racecourse will become awash with colour, when racegoers get the chance to showcase a vast array of individual ‘signature styles’ being encouraged by the racecourse with on the spot prizes to be given out by the style team on the day.
The star attraction of the afternoon, the Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes run over a straight mile and worth an impressive £350,000 in prizemoney won’t disappoint. Won by some great horses in the past, including the legendary Frankel (2011) and Ribchester (2014) and most recently by Palace Pier, the very first running of the race was won by Her Majesty The Queen’s horse, Pall Mall in 1958.
In celebration of the upcoming Jubilee, racegoers can expect signature cocktails including ‘The Jubilee Spritz’ across selected bars, new premier offerings including the Jubilee Garden Package, live acoustic music throughout the afternoon and the after-party, featuring the dynamic duo and Ibiza legends, Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago who will take to the stage after the last race.
