Following in the hoof prints of England’s Ascot and the United States’ Kentucky Derby, Vancouver, BC's Social Concierge team held the Deighton Cup at Hastings Racetrack on July 25th.  While the clouds hinted at showers the weather didn’t stop guests from attending this year’s “Lucky 7” (the 7th anniversary).


Compared to previous years, attendance grew significantly.  This year organizers offered $35 general admission in addition to VIP and Cocktail Jockey tickets.


Most women wore body-con nightclub dresses, floppy sun hats and heels.  A moderate number of inspired ladies color coordinated their outfits with a wide range of unique hats and fascinators.  The few but elegantly dressed ladies paired understated yet eye catching dresses with unique fascinators or traditional race hats.


VIP guests were treated to lunch.  Cigars, champagne and whisky were extra but set the mood.  Everyone had a chance to bet on the horses and enter the best dressed contest.  The contest was open to men and women.  The titles of best dressed man and best dressed woman came with cheques of  $500 cheques for each winner.


The event started at noon and ended a 6:00pm.
