Dressing to impress has paid off in style for Kirsty Farrell from Newry who won the ultimate accolade of Magners Forbidden Flavours Best Dressed Lady on Magners Derby Day

Down Royal teamed up with Magners Forbidden Flavours to offer the amazing prize as a special celebration of the 80th anniversary of biggest and richest flat race of the season in Northern Ireland. On the race track, Stellar Mass, owned by June Judd, was ridden to victory in the €100,000 Magners Derby by Kevin Manning, having been trained by his father-in-law Jim Bolger. Trackside, Kirsty’s head-turning elegance caused a flurry at the fixture and earned praise from the fashion judges who praised her contemporary cream, red and black outfit with statement head piece (an ensemble from Rosie’s Closet in Newry, her mum’s boutique, and hat by Millinery by Mairead). Now Kirsty and her guest will get to live the millionaire lifestyle for five fun-filled days, even enjoying a night time helicopter ride over Las Vegas. Reflecting on a day of style, sociability and sport, Julia Galbraith, Magners Brand Manager at Tennent’s NI, said, “On the track, the big day at Down Royal provided thrilling racing to delight a fabulous sporting crowd, with an electric atmosphere throughout while, trackside, we also saw all the fashion and flair that are synonymous with Down Royal’s über-elegant Best Dressed competition. “It was a fantastic day for everyone and now we’re all looking forward to the Magners Race Evening on Friday 22nd July which promises high level sport and just as much fun, but with a distinctly relaxed Summer evening vibe about it. Roll on those lazy hazy days of Summer!” Mike Todd, Manager at Down Royal Racecourse, added, “As always, we were delighted to have Magners on board as our partner for the Ulster Derby which was more memorable than ever as we celebrated the 80th anniversary of this fantastic fixture.
