'Paint the Town Red' Finalists at the Parade Ring in Punchestown today

Day one of Punchestown (April 25) was a great success, apart from the odd shower of hailstones and blistering cold wind, the sunshine held out for the most part.

The atmosphere as expected was electric.

Hundreds of racegoers gathered to soak up the fashion, entertainment, food and of course the main attraction, horses!

Day two gets underway tomorrow, which sees Exquisite.ie owner and former Xposé presenter Aisling O'Loughlin judge Bollinger Best Dressed.

Wrap up warm ladies, it's due to be another chilly one!
