 Vegas Prize Raises the Fashion Stakes at Down Royal’s Magners Derby


Las Vegas Five-day Five-star holiday on the cards for the winner of the Down Royal and Magners Forbidden Flavours best dressed Lady on Magners Derby Day.


Magners Derby Day on Saturday 18th June sees the return of Best Dressed Lady Competition to Down Royal. Down Royal has teamed up with Magners Forbidden Flavours to offer an amazing prize to the lucky winner on Saturday 18th June. The Magners Forbidden Flavours Best Dressed Lady will walk away with a five day five star trip to Las Vegas. The trip will include private car transfers from the airport, five nights in a 5* hotel, a show, dinner, and a night time helicopter ride over Las Vegas.


Support from Magners Forbidden Flavours is adding a refreshing twist to this year’s Best Dressed competition on Magners Derby Day. Julia Galbraith, Magners Brand Manager at Tennent’s NI, said:


"Always a runaway favourite with the runway fashionistas, Magners Forbidden Flavours, packed with seventeen varieties of apples with an additional bite of real fruit fusion, is set to add a little extra sparkle to the Summer Festival of Racing at Down Royal.  Punters can make the fashionable choice between Strawberry & Lime or Cloudy Lemon, each perfectly designed to bring innovation and excitement to fans of flavoured cider.


"We’re looking forward not only to some great racing, but also to the fashion and flair that are synonymous with Down Royal’s über-elegant Best Dressed competition and we’re hoping that the fantastic prize on offer from Magners Forbidden Flavours and Down Royal will attract record entries.”


Mike Todd, Manager at Down Royal Racecourse, said:


"It is super to have Magners on board for the Ulster Derby and the synergy with the Magners Forbidden Flavours Best Dressed Lady Competition is an exciting addition to the Day. The five day trip to Las Vegas is a brilliant prize and will provide the lucky winner with a trip of a lifetime. At Down Royal we like to sell fun and work with brands that reflect this. Magners have been a strong supporter of Down Royal and have helped us develop the Magners Derby into the highlight of our flat racing season and the Magners Forbidden Flavours Best Dressed Ladies Competition into the social highlight of the Summer Season at Down Royal.”
