HUGOS Restaurant Barbados becomes headline sponsor of Magnolia Cup

The sixth running of the Magnolia Cup on Thursday 28 July is being generously sponsored by HUGOS Restaurant, Barbados. The charity race, which this year is supporting Best Beginnings and World Vision, is for lady riders for whom race riding is not a regular occurrence.

Women from business, such as Bank of England COO Charlotte Hogg and TalkTalk CEO Dido Harding, fashion and media, such as milliner Emily Baxendale, the Spectator’s Camilla Swift and S Magazine’s Victoria Gray, will race over the unique 5.5 furlong course at Goodwood. They will wear bespoke silks created by high-profile designers such as Vivienne Westwood, ME+EM, Liberty and Amanda Wakeley.

HUGOS Restaurant Barbados is soon to be opened and will be the Caribbean’s number one restaurant, housing historic items from the Ivy restaurant in London and the late Lord Glenconner's home in Mustique. The restaurant takes its name from Hugo, the grandson of Andy Stewart, who has been a supporter of the Magnolia Cup for a number of years and whose ASCF charitable foundation is also sponsoring one of the horses running in the race.
