The British Race Day will take place on Sunday, March 6 at the President Remon Racetrack. Ladies will have the opportunity to wear their best hats. The event takes its theme from the Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day where women put on their best garments and most outlandish hats in what it is one of the most elegant affairs of the year. Our front page features last year’s event. Tickets cost $50 and are for sale at the box office.
British Race Day is part of British Week in Panama. Races will begin at 2:10 p.m. with the first of nine races which include the Ambassador’s Trophy, the Queen’s Cup, the Royal Ascot Prize and the English Day Classic.
Panama’s Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day, like the original, is a lot of fun, giving ladies the chance to parade their fashion flair and display their creativity by trying to outdo one another with extravagant headwear while sipping champagne, nibbling canapés and cheering on their favorite horse. English fare is the order of the day.
“Since the XVIII century horse racing has been considered the “Sport of the Kings and noblemen” and for that reason, it needed to be included in the celebrations of British Week,” said British Ambassador in Panama, Dr. Ian Collard.
The event is based on the ‘Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day’, according to a statement from the embassy. The Queen attends the five-day holiday, which is considered one of the highlights of sport and the British social calendar.
According to the embassy, in 2015 some 250 people attended the “Day at the Races’ embassy in the Presidential Suite of the racecourse, and enjoyed nine horse races, sumptuous meals and drinks. There was also a hotly contested competition Millinery.
Ambassador Ian Collard explained that the event is a cultural and sporting event in the context of the season ‘Britain in Panama 2016‘.
