The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate will dish up a feast of equine entertainment for social palates during the Cape’s premier racing season and is set to become the premier horse race and social occasion on the Cape’s racing calendar.
2007 will mark the 146th running of this admired race which attracts the cream of South Africa’s racing stock. Run over a mile at Kenilworth, the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate is seen as an excellent pointer to the Met held six weeks later. In racing circles this is indeed an event not to be missed.
Echoing an era of past refinement and grandeur, redolent of the Great Gatsby but updated for today’s sophisticated taste, the sponsor has designed an occasion that will showcase an enjoyable yet distinguished day out. Hosted on Saturday 29th December 2007 during the height of the social season, the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate (LQP) will provide the ideal environment for not only corporates looking to entertain loyal clients in exclusive surroundings but also for individuals and families seeking a chic warm-up to the impending New Year’s festivities with L’Ormarins providing a range of appetizing picnic baskets stocked full of delicacies and complemented by bottles of L’Ormarins wines.
Adding to the lifestyle component of the occasion, the sponsors have recognised the need for giving back and hence all profits from the monies raised from various endeavours during the course of the day, will be donated to The Equine Trust and the Cart-Horse Protection Association.
So in support of our four-legged friends and your social welfare – don’t miss the race of a lifetime.
