The R2 million Lanzerac Ready to Run Stakes presented by Cape Thoroughbred Sales will be one of three fiercely competitive feature races run on Saturday, November 22, at Kenilworth Racecourse and apart from the opportunity to watch great racing and enjoy fine hospitality the day will also offer a chance for the best dressed couple to win an all expenses paid trip to the world’s most famous thoroughbred event, the Investec Epsom Derby in the UK.
The other big races on Ready To Run day are the Gr 2 Selangor Cup for three-year-olds and the weight for age Gr 2 Green Point Stakes, two important 1600m events that provide pointers to the big Gr 1 features of the Cape Summer Of Champions Season.
An exquisite hospitality experience can be enjoyed on Lanzerac Ready To Run day in the Somerset Room at R250 per person and this includes a buffet lunch. (To reserve a table call 021 700 1600.)
The much anticipated best dressed couple’s competition applies to everybody on course. The winners will be flown to and from London in early June next year in economy class, courtesy of CTS. Their three nights of accommodation in London will be sponsored by Investec. They will enjoy their day at Epsom on June 6, 2015, from a hospitality venue in the Duchess Stand, where the lucky lady of the partnership will have the opportunity to wear a bespoke hat designed and created by internationally acclaimed Cape Town milliner Jacqueline Kolbe.
The quality of horse appearing at this year’s meeting will be of world class standard once again and the races promise to be just as exciting.
