VIDEO: South Yorkshire beauties on right track

Waiting for Video...

Slender frames, glossy manes and doe eyes brought Sheffield’s dog track alive with glamour – and the ladies didn’t scrub up too badly, either.

Forget Aintree – it was all about Owlerton Greyhound Stadium as women gathered for a fundraising event.

Four-legged friends proved the ultimate fashion accessory for the beauties who donned their best dresses for Ladies Day, raising cash for Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield.

Hats to rival those on show at Royal Ascot adorned the heads of South Yorkshire lasses who went all out in the spirit of the occasion.

Catherine Rhone, senior fundraiser at Weston Park Cancer Hospital Charity, said: “Ladies Day at Owlerton has raised over £20,000 in the past three years.

“This year has raised over £4,500 for the charity. It was a fantastic event.”

The Star’s women’s editor Jo Davison joined the judging panel to decide the night’s best-dressed racegoer.

Great grandma Doris Hepplestone beat off stiff competition – a cause for double celebration as she marked her 87th birthday.

“She’s always been very stylish and extremely glamorous,” said her granddaughter, Adele Hallworth.

“She loves dressing up and has some really beautiful clothes. All the girls in the family borrow them, even her great-granddaughters.”

Doris, of Base Green, won a bottle of champagne and hairstyling vouchers.

“I’d never have entered if my girls hadn’t pushed me into it,” she said. “Where’s my outfit from? I’ve had it ages – I can’t remember.

“ Shall we say it’s vintage?”
