Speaking at the launch of the fashion competition Brent Pope commented “I am delighted to be part of Style Evening at Tramore Races and I think it is really wonderful to see the guys being included in the Most Stylish Competition, we’re a fashionable bunch too you know and I think that’s certainly worth rewarding, well done to the sponsors and all involved at the racecourse. Naturally, I also look forward to keeping my eyes peeled for the most stylish ladies on the evening, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it eh!”

Aoife Walsh also commented “I am looking for finalists who best represent the competition title ‘Most Stylish’, for me these will stand out from the crowd as elegant, chic and super sophisticated, attention to detail is key and that is often the slightest winning margin in competitions like this. I’m from Clonmel and have been to Tramore Races years ago so I know the fashion will be unreal and I’m really looking forward to visiting the festival again, it’s always a great day out with the gang.”
