PE’s biggest horseracing event this Sunday

2015-10-21 06:00

THE organisers of Port Elizabeth’s biggest horseracing event, the Gr 3 Betting World Algoa Cup meeting to take place on October 25 at Fairview racecourse, have secured the renowned comedian/MC/singer/drummer Gino Fabbri to work with the day’s chief MC Selwyn Willis and to entertain patrons throughout the afternoon.

Fabbri is chiefly known for the hilarious range of stereotype characters he plays. Integrated into his act are a number of unique show-stopping speciality acts which create wow moments between his comedy characters, including his Evolution of Dance, in which he performs 50 dance styles in 7 minutes.

The Algoa Cup is one of Port Elizabeth’s most popular meetings. It attracts big crowds not only due to the racing, but also due to the vast range of entertainment and fine fare provided, both of which cater for the needs of all age groups. There are also lucky draws throughout the day.

The Algoa Cup itself has gained in prestige since being won by the subsequent Jandamp;B Met winner Hill Fifty-Four three years ago.

The day will have a unique start this year in that a charity walk/run in aid of polio awareness will be held at 7:30am in the morning, to which all are welcome (food vendors will be opening from 6:30am).

Be sure not to miss this racing carnival, which has become known as one of PE’s most festive family days out
