In pictures: It was lashing at Ladies Day in Ballybrit

Michael Winters’ Missunited won the feature race in awful conditions.

It was Ladies Day at Ballybrit racecourse today…

Umbrellas were at a premium

Most hats weren’t designed for weather like this

Some seemed to dodge the downpour better than others

Then, some horse racing broke out!

Trainer Mick Winters successfully defended his title in the feature race, the Guinness Galway Hurdle, with Missunited under Robbie Power (left).

Heading off at 7/1, it was clearly a popular choice

However, most bookies were well covered

Roger Loughran guided Golden Wonder to the Perfect Pint Steeplechase

Pat Smullen found success on Yellow Rosebud
