Tamara's Scrapbook: Goodwood Horseracing

posted on Friday, 4th July 2014 | find under Tamara, Fashion , Nutrition
Sweaty Betty's founder and creative director Tamara is forever in-the-know on what's happening in the worlds of fitness and fashion. Whether it’s trialling the latest classes, road-testing new activewear, attending industry events or styling up the latest collections in her own, sports-versus-fashion way, each week we will be sharing the latest from Tamara's scrapbook.

Last week, Sweaty Betty's fashionable founder spent the evening at Goodwood as part of their Friday Nights series held throughout June. With style-conscious attendees everywhere you looked, the evening of horseracing included a DJ set by Zane Lowe and an outdoor party, with the beautiful South Downs as a backdrop.

With most of our weekends spent running on the beach in West Wittering and overseeing the design of our new house, I was looking forward to heading over to Goodwood race course for one of its Friday Nights events in June.

Running later than planned due to work and school commitments, we arrived at the beautiful race course just as the sun was setting to find our friend had won £1000! With the champagne flowing in celebration, it was set to be a great night. The dress code suggested linen suits and Panama hats for the men, but as I knew it was going to be chilly, I also opted for a "trouser suit" look of cream tailored trousers with a green linen cropped jacket, and a beautiful vintage cream silk blouse that I had bought from a friend's collection of Italian couture. A Panama hat topped off my look. The hat had actually been given to me years ago by our production team on a shoot in Ibiza, and it goes everywhere with me!

The races created just as much excitement as you’d expect from high-level horseracing, but it was the post-race event that was particularly memorable. An outdoor party with a DJ set by Zane Lowe, there were around 2,000 people dancing and drinking into the night. It was such a fun evening, made even better by us turning up with friends in their VW campervan - aptly named Betty!
