Horse days in Champs de Mars traditionally take place under the sign of elegance and class. But the day "Mauritius Derby" will be special. Indeed, Mauritius Turf Club (MTC) provides a concours d'elegance. The theme is "Raceday Chic."
"The Mauritius Derby is a classic Group 1 race. This day is also associated with ladies. MTC has wanted to honor the elegance and femininity. This day is called "Mauritius Derby Ladies' Day," says Joanne Tor, Marketing Manager at MTC.
The opportunity is offered to women to express their beauty and enhance their elegance. But Concours d'Elegance wants totally different from other regular competitions MTC. There will be no markings or "catwalk", as indicated our interlocutor. "Accompanied by a photographer, the five-member jury will tour the Champs de Mars, including the paddock, lodges or in the crowd. Their task will be to identify those who wear the finest clothes corresponding to the dress code, "elaborates the Marketing Manager.
Creativity, eccentricity and style are the three main criteria. The ladies will have to wear accessories often attributed to the races: Hats, gloves, parasols, among others. The screening will take place from 12:15 for the start of the first race. It will end at the end of the fourth race, around 14 hours. Three winners will then be designated.
