And they're off - A day at York Racecourse

14:00:00

Over one of the hottest weekends of the year, I paid a visit to York Racecourse. As most guys who've visited the races before, it's effectively an excuse to get suited and booted and sit in the sun drinking beer all day. And that's exactly what happened.
It all came around pretty last minute so after rushing home from working, getting my suit organised it was a quick turn around to head to the station to get a train on Friday night rather than early on the Saturday morning.

I've visited Ayr Racecourse before but York was something else. With an expected crowd of around 40,000 on one of the hottest days of the year, I was blown away with how well organised and seamless the day panned out. Opting for tickets in the County Stand, it was definitely the place to be given the weather. We arrived early doors and managed to get ourselves an area with plenty of seats for the 18 of us, and a bar within walking distance, we were sorted for the day.

All racecourses have their own dress codes, so it's something to bear in mind if you're visiting that a quick check of the website won't do any harm! Given the area, we were in was a bit fancier than the general grandstand area, it was a jacket and tie affair for us. Luckily, however, given the heat on the day they were a bit more relaxed with the jacket element than usual! I like to take any excuse to wear the pocket watch I was given years ago when I was a ring bearer at my cousins' wedding.

York seemed like a lovely place and I'd love to head back and get to see more of the town and inside the city walls!
What do you make of my race day outfit? I'd love to know your thoughts!
