The 30,000 euro contest is now the most valuable Thoroughbred race for lady riders in Europe and the winning rider will receive a spectacular piece of Boodles jewelry from their Circus collection (photograph attached). Boodles’ Circus Collection takes inspiration from this simplest and most attractive of shapes, with circular diamond set motifs, in yellow and while gold mosaic like patterns.”

Evan Arkwright, Commercial Manager of the Curragh Racecourse, commented
The Curragh has enjoyed a very positive partnership with Boodles since 2006 and we are delighted to welcome them as race sponsors of the Ladies Derby. Their association will add significant prestige to the race and the prize to the winner will ensure that it will be the most sought after prize for lady riders”

James Amos of Boodles said, “Boodles is delighted to be able to support the Ladies Derby, and to continue their strong relationship with The Curragh, and the racing world.”
“We are looking forward to what should be a thrilling race on Saturday, and it is nice to know that the winning rider will be wearing Boodles jewellery as they celebrate afterwards – not something that normally happens!”
