Citizen reporter

In just under 80 days’ time, Johannesburg’s premier horse racing event will once again be taking place when the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup comes to Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday, 28 November.

Bigger and better than ever before, the official Sound Experience after party line-up has been confirmed and this year will feature Cassper Nyovest, Mi Casa, Goldfish and Muzart. This is the More Jozi horse race!

Providing even more glamour on the day will be South African actress, singer, dancer and television presenter Dineo Moeketsi, who is the official face of the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup for a second year in a row.

“I am beyond elated to be the face of the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup again. It’s wonderful to be a part of an event that stands head and shoulders above the rest and exceeds every expectation year in and year out.

The 2015 Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup will be the talk of the entire Gauteng province. This year promises even more excitement and entertainment with an impressive Sound Experience line-up. It really is a fantastic day at the races,” she says.

“There is an electric energy in Johannesburg towards the end of November. The Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup is the perfect year end function for corporates as well as a day out with friends!

“This is Jozi’s horse race!” says Taryn Rautenbach from Megapro Holdings (Pty) Ltd, event organisers of this prestigious annual horse racing event.

“Our sponsorship with the Summer Cup is an appropriate fit not only due to our motto of ‘Live Entertained’, but because the event and our brand stand for the same values; quality, aspiration and credibility.

The premium occasion is a unique union of the entertainment, sport and fashion industries in one powerful and exuberant Jozi event,” explains Chris Dirks, Group Executive: Merchandise and Marketing of JD Group, license holders of the SANSUI brand in South Africa.

A general access R75 ticket will give you access to Turffontein Racecourse, as well as the official Sound Experience after party (No U18’s allowed).

A host of hospitality options are also available: A R275 Jozi Circle option is the golden ticket to Gauteng’s not to be missed summer event of the year.

For those who really want an all-out VIP experience, R1 995 per person for the Summer Sound Experience package will get you racecourse admission, fully staffed hospitality in a luxury Bedouin facility with a view of the Sound Experience entertainment and horse racing rush, delicious meals, complimentary local bar, car park access, betting facilities and access to the all-important Sound Experience after party and private bar area.

The Summer Cup boasts an esteemed legacy of thoroughbred horse racing in Johannesburg which began in 1887 making the event 127 years old. Last year saw thousands of people attend race day, and with so much more on offer this year, this number is expected to grow substantially.

The theme of this year’s race day is “More Jozi.” Think the Sport of Kings, glam and bling.
