Siobhan Wharton from Ballyhar won the style stakes with her timeless elegant racing style wearing a white dress from Jasmine Boutique in Tralee and a monochrome hat by the award-winning milliner Jennifer Wrynne. Her look was completed with black shoes from Dorothy Perkins and a black bag from Marks & Spencer. The winning look bagged her €500 and two VIP tickets to the Dawn Milk Ladies Day in 2021.
