In the photo, Sam showed off her ticket, as well as name tags that featured her and husband Richard Lavender’s name and a card that read ‘Welcome to the Windsor Forest Restaurant.’
Wearing a stunning red dress, the TV personality topped off her look with a Jane Taylor London tonal pink-rippled headpiece and pink shoes.
Sam also accessorised with large statement pearl earrings.
The journalist later shared a photo of herself alongside her husband and several other men all dressed up and abiding to the race’s strict dress code for the Royal Enclosure.
According to their website, racegoers are required to dress appropriately depending on the ‘enclosure’ they’ve purchased tickets for.

‘Gentlemen are kindly reminded that it is a requirement to wear black, grey or navy morning dress,’ their guidelines read for the Ascot’s Royal Enclosure.
‘A waistcoat and tie (no cravats or bow ties), a black or grey top hat, black shoes worn with socks.’
‘Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external seating area within the Royal Enclosure Gardens,’ the guide also states.

As for females attendees in the Royal Enclosure, it is a requirement to wear a ‘modest’ hemline.
However, elsewhere in the guide it appears sky-high mini skirts may be permitted in other enclosures.
‘Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer,’ the guide reads.

‘Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater. Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted. Dresses and tops with sheer straps and sleeves are also not permitted.’
‘Hats should be worn; however, a headpiece which has a solid base of 4 inches (10cm) or more in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat,’ the statement adds.
Hours later, Sam shared her excitement following the win of Aussie super horse Nature Strip, drawing an arrow pointing down to the horse on the track.
Nature Strip, trained by Chris Waller, powered to the finish by four-and-a-half lengths to win the King’s Stand Stakes at Britain’s royal meeting.
‘He’s just an absolute freak of a horse,’ declared Sydney jockey James McDonald.
