WIN: L'Ormarins Queen’s Plate tickets!

Sport24 are giving away two sets of double L'Ormarins Queen’s Plate Stud Club tickets to the 2018 event at Kenilworth racecourse!

Start putting together your blue and white ensembles as the dates to Cape Town’s racing and social highlight, the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Racing Festival, has officially been set for Friday, January 5 and Saturday, January 6, 2018.

The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Racing Festival is the continent’s oldest race day, dating back to 1861, and with last year becoming South Africa’s first multi-day racing festival in the mould of famous international racing festivals such as Royal Ascot, Qatar Glorious Goodwood and the Kentucky Derby.

Friday will be an elegant and relaxed afternoon Garden Party, with the racing highlight being the Grade 2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes - the premier sprint race for fillies in the Western Cape.

Beyond the track, the day will also see live jazz, a Summer Harvest Table under the trees, along with bottomless complimentary L’Ormarins Brut Cap Classique and Heineken on tap. Garden Party tickets will be R500, and will additionally grant guests access to the following Saturday’s Style Lounge and all-too-famous after party later that evening.

As is tradition, the running of the Grade 1 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate will take place on Saturday, when South Africa’s finest thoroughbreds compete for the R1.5 million purse.

Tickets for Saturday will range from the Style Lounge, priced at R350 to the Kenilworth Jazz Room at R1 500 per person, with spots such as the popular Stud Club at R1 300 and picnic style Paddock Sites at R10 000 per table.
