Best Dressed Contest & Millionaire Tea at Arlington Million
Best Dressed Contest & Millionaire Tea at Arlington Million: The 2015 Arlington Million is a Grade I turf race with a $1,000,000 purse for three-year-olds and up. The race is run at a distance of 1¼ miles and is one of the summer’s biggest races on Saturday, August 15, 2015. The Arlington Million is held at Arlington Race Track and is part of Arlington Million Day, which features fine dining, fashion, and racing.
There will be special food and beverage offerings on Arlington Million Day, including Million Mary and Millionaire Tea served throughout the track in 2015 official Arlington Million glasses. Patrons can also go to the Million Room to enjoy a Chef’s Table menu.
There will also be live entertainment. The time is to be announced, but Murley will be live on the Miller Lite Band Stage. However, patrons must purchase Million Party Zone tickets to enjoy the live music.
Arlington will also host the Arlington Million Best Dressed Competition. This contest will be held in the paddock near the Champage Tent. The contest will begin right after the second race, and the top 20 contestants will be chosen by a panel of judges. Then, judges will choose one Best Dressed Lady and Gentleman. However, the top 20 will be able to enjoy a champagne toast hosted by Valor Ladies in the Champagne Tent. All contestants will receive a gift bag from Fashion at the Races.
There will also be an opening ceremony at Arlington Park to kick of the whole day, which will include the National Anthem sung by Jim Cornelison with colors presented.
Patrons can also enter the FastBet Mobile Ultimate Bet Challenge and win a chance to bet $3,000 on one horse in the Arlington Million. To enter, visit www.arlingtonpark.com/ultimatebet.
With the fashion contest and all of the other fun festivities at Arlington Park, try one of the most unique summer trends, burgundy. Usually, maroon, burgundy, and deep reds are seen all over the fall runways, but this year, these deep reds and burgundies have been a summer staple. Designers use this shade in light-weight materials to keep the summery vibe. This is also the perfect color to help in the August transition from summer to fall. Just make sure to stay away from long sleeves and heavy fabrics to avoid looking like you are in the wrong season.
The burgundy trend for summer is so unique that you will definitely stand out on Arlington Million Day and may even win best dressed!
