Sponsored by L’Ormarins since 2005, the Queen’s Plate is also one of the Cape’s acclaimed social gatherings where art and passion are captured not only in equestrian endeavours but also in the ancient winemaking skills displayed in Antonij Rupert Wines as well as a collection of classic, rare Mercedes-Benz cars on display courtesy of the Franschhoek Motor Museum.
An elegance of occasion, meanwhile, is reflected in royal blue & white race day fashions, world-class entertainment and a variety of hospitality & culinary offerings which suggest the perfect place to share good wine with friends, enjoy the races and dance the night away.
An annual highlight is always the late afternoon announcement of the Best Dressed and Best Hat competitions with judging by some of South Africa’s top fashion designers and media personalities.
After the dust has settled, wagers have been won and lost and the sun begins to set over Kenilworth Racecourse, the best of South African DJs who will take the stage at the L’Ormarins Style Lounge to play into the night as a fitting end to an eventful day at the races.
