While brightly-coloured jockeys raced equine champions around the track at Fakenham Racecourse, there was just as much action and colour off the track.

Saturday saw racegoers wearing wellies and bearing brollies as the rain fell, but on Sunday hats and heels were the order of the day at the Jarrold Ladies Day at Fakenham Races.

Thousands of people streamed through the gates at the annual event, a highlight on the social, as well as racing, calendar.

The thunder of steeds bearing down on the finish line and the roar of the crowds was interspersed with the popping of corks and the rumble of conversation as visitors enjoyed the day.

David Hunter, chief executive and clerk of the course, said: “We’ve had a fantastic day and a brilliant turn out. Being Ladies Day there are very many elegant and beautifully dressed ladies and some well dressed men as well. I’m very proud of being associated with Fakenham on days like this.”
