Johannesburg – Time to clear your social calendar. The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate has announced the dates for next year’s much-anticipated two-day horseracing festival.
Taking over the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town, the 2019 edition of the event is set to take place on 4 and 5 January.
2019 marks the 158th renewal of this premier race as well as the third year of the event being staged as a two-day festival.
Guests are invited to relax into the weekend as they sip on champagne and take in the smooth sounds of jazz on the Friday, while they enjoy racing that’s just serious enough to whet the appetite for Saturday’s main course.
After the main event, celebrations will continue into the night at the Stud Club where race-goers will have the chance to let loose on the dance floor at the after party.
