The Cape Summer of Champions now has yet another calendar highlight for racing fans in Cape Town with the Investec Day of Dreams taking place at Kenilworth on Saturday, January 23.
In a partnership announced in late November between Investec and Cape Thoroughbred Sales, the Investec Day of Dreams 2016 is the first of a three-year partnership which will bring Africa’s richest thoroughbred horse race to the Western Cape.
Featured races on the day will be the Investec Cape Derby (Grade 1), Klawervlei Majorca Stakes (Grade 1) and then the big one, The CTS Million Dollar. For the first time in South African thoroughbred history, owners can race for a staggering one million US dollars.
Investec is no stranger to high-class horse racing, with this global specialist bank and asset management company long being the sponsor of the world-renowned Derby Festival at Epsom Downs, one of the highlights of the British Summer Season.
Racegoers can also enjoy access to the Public Village which will be offering shaded areas with benches, on-course prize giveaways, live entertainment, food vendors and a bar area with tote facilities. Entrance is free and gates open at 11am.
If you would like to watch the proceedings from a venue in the building – a buffet lunch is on offer at R250 per person. Call (021) 797 6037 to book a table at this event.
