    I've only just discovered what Aintree was ... I was not prepared for that. I need to see my therapist.

    from yesterday:



    One opportunistic lady was pictured taking a break in the arms of a police officer while another was captured in an unfortunate position with her legs in the air after falling in the street.
    As the crowds staggered out of the grounds, a brawl broke out and middle-aged men were pictured rolling around on the grass as a largely indifferent crowd watched from the sidelines.
    As the race-goers gradually vacated Aintree, filling up the platform at the nearby train station, the cleaners began their monumental task of clearing the mountains of garbage left behind by visitors.
    Earlier in the day, the thousands of racing fans attending Ladies' Day had got well and truly into the spirit of things and delightedly roared home their runners in the first few races.

    Ladies Day at York sees Ebor Festival's best-dress battle it out for title | Daily Mail Online
    Falls, brawls and horseplay! Thirsty racegoers make the most of the bar at Ladies Day at York (with one man even getting arrested)

    • Ladies battled it out to be crowned best-dressed racegoer and came dressed in an array of colourful dresses
    • Revellers enjoyed huge jugs of Pimms and flutes of champagne on the manicured lawns
    • One man was seen getting handcuffed by police after a brawl broke out

    By Ruth Styles for MailOnline
    Published: 15:17 GMT, 20 August 2015 | Updated: 20:57 GMT, 20 August 2015

    The skies might have been grey but the scene at York racecourse was anything but as hundreds of colourfully dressed revellers descended for Ladies Day at the Ebor Festival.

    Resplendent in skyscraper heels and delicate summer frocks, the local ladies were clearly intent on proving that they are more than a match for the glamorous racegoers who were seen enjoying Ascot and Goodwood earlier this year.
    Ladies certainly made the most of the bar, with revellers enjoying huge jugs of Pimms and flutes of champagne on the manicured lawns. For some, the day's drinking was all too much, with many ladies seen enjoying burgers and stumbling home barefoot.

    Elegant: A pair of ladies enjoy a champagne picnic on the lawn as they wait for the racing action to begin on Ladies Day







    Thirsty Thursday: One woman saves time by ordering an entire pitcher, left, whilst others with sore feet give up and sits on the grass, right

    And it wasn't just the female racegoers who made the most of the day's drinking. A suited young man was chased by police through the crowds before being handcuffed after a brawl broke out in the grounds.
    York is currently hosting the Yorkshire Ebor Festival, one of the biggest events on the racing calendar, which attracts vast amounts of prize money and some of the best horses, jockeys and trainers in the world.
    Like its southern counterparts Ascot, Cheltenham and Goodwood, Ladies Day at York includes a competition to find the best-dressed racegoer with a top prize of a short break for two at the Marriott hotel in Dubai for the winner.



    As a result, the locals pulled out all the stops, with dresses in classic summer shades of tomato and cream, delicate floral print and platform heels among the most popular choices.
    Unusually short and sweet ensembles were few and far between, with most plumping for midi lengths - among them one lady who arrived wearing a spectacular green dress complete with a netted petticoat.
    But while goosebumps were the accessory most frequently spotted thanks to the grey afternoon, beautiful hats weren't far behind with top titfers bedecked with vast silk bows and enlivened with painterly prints.

    Cheers! Two ladies toast the end of a day's racing with celebratory champagne

    Drama: A suited young man is chased by police through crowds at Ladies' Day at York Racecourse, before being handcuffed



    Stepping in: Burly security guards, as well as the police, handcuff the man


    Oops: A worse-for-wear looking racegoers reaches to pick up her sandal as it falls from her foot


    Lean on me: A couple help each other stagger home after a busy Ladies' Day at York Racecourse





    Tucking in: The ladies of the racecourse grab some eats to line their stomachs


    Bold and beautiful: A pair of ladies show off their spectacular hats which were designed to look like orange and ivory blooms







    Standout style: A lady causes jaws to drop (left) while others drew glances in their bright florals (centre) and elegant dresses (right)







    Bold and beautiful: Ensembles ran the gamut of colours from classic black (left) via delicate navy and cream (centre) to bold pink (right)





    Pulling out all the stops: Ladies arrive for a day at the races resplendent in green dresses and spectacular hats


    Elaborate: A lady arrives for the races in a simple duck egg blue dress and a truly spectacular hat topped with peacock feathers


    In good spirits: Friends make their way home after Ladies' Day shenanigans







    Looking good: Arriving ladies show off their hats after ramping up the glamour in a bid to win the best-dressed racegoer prize


    Beautiful: A lady shows off the watercolour-effect lily design atop her hat as she arrives at the York racecourse





    Nuns on the run: Two ladies in fancy dress flash their legs as they get into the party spirit





    Day out: Arriving ladies show off their ensembles, including one in a leftfield but very stylish houndstooth short suit (right)

    Although racegoers watching from the paddock aren't required to follow a set dress code, those enjoying the races from the County Stand are encouraged to dress up by race organisers.
    Like the Ascot style police, those at York say that gentlemen should wear 'a jacket, collared shirt and tie' and complete the look with 'smart trousers and formal shoes'.
    Ladies, meanwhile, are only advised to avoid jeans and trainers, although organisers do warn that 'common sense restrictions' and 'taste and decency' apply to all areas of the racecourse.
    With none falling foul of York's style police, racegoers had plenty of time to devote to watching the action while doing their best to keep warm and dodge the occasional shower.
    On the course, highlights included the DBS Premier Yearling Stakes, which was taken by Sheikh Hamdan of Dubai's colt Tasleet, and the big race of the day, the Darley Yorkshire Oaks, which comes with prize money of 207,459.





    Having fun: A beautifully dressed lady in a rather spectacular hat laughs happily as she arrives at York





    Chic: Ladies had pulled out all the stops in a bid to claim the title of best-dressed racegoer and the prize of a holiday in Dubai


    Early adopter: One lady arrived wearing head to toe leopard print, which is one of next season's most fashionable patterns





    Two tone: Many of the ladies chose to keep it simple in one or two colours. Red and white (left) and black and nude proved popular


    Lady in red: Scarlet, another huge trend for next season, also proved a hit and some, among them this lady, wore the colour head to toe


    Lovely: A group of friends show off their elegant ensembles as they arrive to enjoy the racing action at York


    Good look: A quartet of ladies show off their outfits, among them a gorgeous summer dress tricked out in a delicate floral print



    ANYTHING GOES (AS LONG AS IT'S 'DECENT'): YORK'S DRESS CODE DECODED

    Aintree might have the world's biggest race in the shape of the Grand National but York is just as prestigious and like its Liverpudlian competitor, has plenty to offer in the style stakes.
    Both Aintree and York offer relatively relaxed dress codes compared to Ascot, which has become famous in recent years for its exhaustively detailed style guides, and Cheltenham.
    As at Aintree, York is a hotbed of northern glamour with short skirts and sky high heels regularly spotted in and around the paddock. Colourful hats are a more recent innovation, although as today's event demonstrates, the ladies of York know a thing or two when it comes to buying hats.
    Indeed, with the majority of ladies arriving dressed to kill, organisers have decided it is male racegoers who require a bigger nudge, with most of the rules in the brief style guide applying to them
    'Racegoers at York like to make it a special occasion and choose to dress accordingly,' it reads. 'Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket, collared shirt and tie in County Stand. Most gentlemen would choose to wear smart trousers and formal shoes to complete the look.
    'So whilst there is no formal restriction on wearing jeans and trainers, these are rarely seen in the County Stand. In a similar vein, whilst we encourage a sense of style in the County Stand, if gentlemen believe the weather warrants shorts then there is no formal restriction to them being worn.
    'In Grandstand and Paddock and Course Enclosure the dress code is more relaxed - shorts and t-shirts are worn by racegoers enjoying the sun. The only common sense restrictions would be those of taste and decency which would apply to all areas, for example regarding style and slogan t-shirts. Bare chests are not acceptable.'

    Overall, these women seem to be much better put together than the Aintree slags.
