Stylish WAG Gillian prepares to judge best dressed race ladies

JOCKEY WAG Gillian Walsh has promised to bring a touch of glamour to the festive racing -- but she has yet to find her perfect outfit.

Ruby Walsh's wife has been selected to judge the Best Dressed Lady at Leopardstown Racecourse on December 28 alongside Off The Rails host Sonya Lennon.

But despite being in the spotlight on Lexus Chase Day, Gillian says she still has no idea what style she'll be wearing in the parade ring.

Speaking to the Diary, Gillian admitted that she can't wait to get her score board out.

"I can't wait to judge Best Dressed Lady, I'm genuinely really excited about it. I have never missed Leopardstown so I'm really looking forward to the day.

"Obviously my first love is the actual racing itself but I have to say I love all things fashion, especially when it comes to winter clothes.

"It's the most stylish event of the year. Funnily enough I haven't even got my own outfit yet. I haven't had time to think that far ahead just yet," she explained.

And of course racing star Ruby will be there to support his wife on the big day.

Although he is heading to the UK for some of the festive season, mum of two Gillian, who runs Diamondlite.ie, says Ruby will be back in time for the fashion event, and admits she is glad to see him out of the house again this Christmas after breaking his leg last year.

"Ruby will be there on the day which will be nice but honestly he is so busy now and over the next few weeks. He is flying to Kempton on St Stephen's Day but this is the first time I actually want him out of the house, because we are so glad that he is busy again.

"Last year because of his broken leg he was home all Christmas so it's nice to see him out again," she admitted.

Gillian says she and Ruby are also busy preparing for a family Christmas, with their daughters Isabella (2) and Elsa (7 months).

"We can't wait to relax with our two little girls, and it is Elsa's first Christmas so we are really looking forward to it," she said.
