Event Guide to the Dubai Future Champions Festival
The highlight of the Gold Season returns to Newmarket this month with the two-day Dubai Future Champions Festival on Friday, 13th October and Saturday, 14th October.
Friday is Newmarket's annual Autumn Ladies Day and features The Style Awards sponsored by The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel. Female racegoers are asked to put their most fashionable feet forward and dress to impress for their chance to win great prizes in this free to enter, on-course competition. Prize highlights include £1000 worth of ESPA Products and a Winter Rescue Spa Break for two, a Range Rover Velar for the weekend courtesy of Marshall Jaguar Land Rover Cambridge, a piece or artwork courtesy of Castle Galleries Cambridge and The Foxley Clutch Bag courtesy of Fairfax and Favor.
Following The Style Awards, Radio DJ Charlie Hedges from Kiss FM will host Après Racing. With 1.8 million daily radio listeners, Charlie Hedges is also fast becoming a formidable and in-demand name on the dance music scene. Having conquered the airwaves, the skies (with her Charlie Hedges Presents podcast syndicated across every British Airways flight worldwide), and the dance floors already, she's also set to debut a track, Kaleidoscope.
On the track on Friday, racegoers will witness the Group 1 feature, the newly sponsored bet365 Fillies' Mile, which is the joint richest Group 1 two-year-old race in Europe.
The Pony Racing Finals kick off proceedings on the Saturday with young jockeys aged 9 - 15 taking to the track. The Group 1 Darley Dewhurst Stakes, Britain's most prestigious race for juvenile horses, will take center stage as the feature race of the day but don't miss out on another highlight: The Betfred Cesarewitch Heritage Handicap, the second half of the historic Autumn Double.
DJ and TV presenter, Vernon Kay will be on hand on Saturday to take to the stage and get racegoers up and dancing after the racing has finished.
On course across both days there will be entertainment including art exhibitions, bars and restaurants, music and the Flavours of Dubai, which offers a delicious experience of Middle Eastern cuisine. After the success of the Flavours of Dubai tent at last year's Festival, this fantastic foodie experience will return, offering visitors a taste of various foods native to Dubai and the Middle East. Flavours of Dubai is FREE for all to enter and sample the dishes on offer.
All students with a valid NUS card will gain FREE entry on course over both days of the Festival. There will be a dedicated student bar with up to 15% off selected drinks too.
