South Africa’s premier weight-for-age mile contest has been won by some of the greatest horses to grace the turf in this country and was recently ranked among the top five races in the world.

Louis The King will be ridden by champion jockey Piere Strydom who rode a brilliant race on him to get up in the last stride to deny his stable companion Killua Castle in the Sansui Summer Cup at the end of November.
