PIETERMARITZBURG’S top entertainment destination, Golden Horse Casino, is once again to host the action-packed social event, Tsogo Sun Sprint, on Saturday, May 27.

The Tsogo Sun Sprint has established itself as one of the most paramount equine events on the calendar and is the only horse racing event in the country with four sprint races. From its inception in 1962, the Sprint is now toasting to 55 glamorous years.

The event is highly regarded and is the oldest, biggest and richest sprint event in the country. Previously known as the Golden Horse Sprint and later changed to the Tsogo Sun Sprint, the race will now have a R3.7 million cash prize at stake for horse racing enthusiasts.

The event is renowned for attracting and uniting some of the country’s popular who’s-who in entertainment, fashion and business, as well as all round horse racing fanatics for a day filled with fun and glamour. Last year, the glitzy affair attracted over 17 000 visitors and this year the crowd attendance is expected to grow exponentially.

“At Golden Horse Casino, we are honoured to once again host the prestigious Tsogo Sun Sprint on our property. Over time, this event has established itself as a world-class race event in South Africa’s social calendar. Now celebrating 55 years of fun and glamour, with an even bigger cash prize up for grabs, guests are guaranteed to be treated to a night to remember,” said Maureen Kivits, Golden Horse General Manager.

There are four Grade 1 sprint races with a field of the most elite horses from all around South Africa.
These races offer 1 200 metres of speed, power and skill. The Tsogo Sun Sprint is an “open race” for fillies and geldings with a top prize of R1 million

The Tsogo Sun Sprint is a day of pace and power, great style as well as a host of added entertainment options.

Entrance to the competitive Tsogo Sun Sprint is free and starts at 10am.
