L’ORMARINS has thrown its considerable status and class behind the Queen’s Plate Festival and a great weekend awaits racegoers in Cape Town and armchair punters at home.
Two quality race cards will make for fantastic betting on Friday featuring the Cartier Gr2 Sceptre Stakes on Friday and the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate,the Gr1 Cartier Paddock Stakes and the Gr2 Peninsula Handicap on Saturday.
London’s exclusive CCercle Magazine described the festivities as such: “What sets the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate apart from other race days is its raison d’etre, not one of populous mass scale, but rather one of exclusivity, elegance and panache!”
You will see scenes like the one in Martin Van Staden’s headline photo at the Festival this weekend – Cape Town’s and international elite, an exuberant young crowd and some wonderful thoroughbreds. It’s a don’t miss!
