L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate 2016
South Africa's premier horse racing event is soon to take place on the sprawling grounds of Kenilworth Racecourse on 13-14 February 2016. This much-anticipated event makes its return for the 155th time, promising music, a myriad of entertainment, high-end haute couture, and of course, enthralling horse races.
In between watching your favourite thoroughbred gallop around the track, attendees can participate in a range of activities. Event-goers need to adhere to a strict dress code that encourages women to don their best hats and men to dress up in their fanciest suits. The theme for 2016 is 'Strictly White and Blue', so dress up in your finest getups. If you think you are well dressed and looking to win a few prizes, then be sure to take part in the 'haute couture' competition.
As the event is a regal affair, it attracts the equestrian elite as well as local celebs. So if you're a socialite looking to mingle with the rich and famous, be sure to look out for them on the course.
If fashion and socialising aren't what you there for, bet on your horse of choice or spectate the 12 racing events happening throughout the day. One luck betsman stand the chance of winning R1 million and a coveted trophy.
