2018-10-17 06:01

AN Equestrian Extravaganza comes to Fairview Racecourse from October 26 to October 28 and residents are invited to join in celebrating amazing local athletes.

The extravaganza starts off with the Eastern Cape Horse Care Unit Charity Race Day on Friday, October 26.

This worthy charity services the needs of the townships within the PE, Uitenhage, Humansdorp and Grahamstown regions, where education of horse and donkey owners is of great importance.

Patrons will be welcomed in the HB Christian Room for just R110 per person which includes a light meal and dessert.

The Racing Association cocktail party and auction will take place after the last race. Runners in the G-Bets Algoa Cup (which will be run on Sunday) will be auctioned off and all proceeds from the auction will be donated to the charity.

Families and friends are in for a whole new experience on Saturday starting at 16:00. For only R130 per car, young and old can enjoy the sunset on the lawns next to the track.

The SAPS mounted unit will be doing an educational demonstration and there will be pony rides for the little ones. The highlight of the evening will be the screening of the movie Seabiscuit from 19:00.

People are welcome to bring their own picnic basket, but light snacks and drinks will be on sale. Tickets are available from Quicket – search for Fairview Race Course Equestrian Movie Night Experience.

For the racing enthusiast, Sunday, October 28 is a must. The HB Christian Room will become a VIP hospitality suite with a buffet lunch, complimentary wines and race cards, all for R350 per person.

Bookings can be made up to October 19 and the dress code is smart.

It’s a day not to be missed and it includes top- class racing, an adventure race challenge, vehicle display and giveaways.

Families and friends will be treated to an array of picnic spots and food trucks to tickle their taste buds.
