GLORIOUS Goodwood is the highlight of the flat racing season, but this hasn’t stopped ladies from knocking back the booze.

As temperatures soared to the high 20s today, many revellers beat the sun by hitting the booze at Goodwood Festival Ladies Day.

Snaps from the course showed men and women knocking back the pints.

Another showed two revellers getting into the spirit of things, and breaking out into dance.

The heat was clearly getting to some, with this stunning blonde pictured tucking into a 99 to cool off.

The course has also ditched many of the strict rules of the other major race meetings.

But for the first time at Glorious Goodwood, female punters are outweighing men, with 58% of all wagers put on by ladies.

Ladies were also the feature of the day on the race track, with the Magnolia Cup inviting the leading women of business, sport, fashion, medicine and media.
