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 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 horserace to the Western Cape.
Featured races on the day will be the Investec Cape Derby (Gr1), Klawervlei Majorca Stakes (Gr1) 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 horseracing, 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 give-aways, live entertainment, food vendors and a bar area with tote facilities. Entrance is free and gates open at 11am.
Those who find themselves in the Public Village will stand a chance to WIN R50000 in cash prizes, broken down as follows:
To enter, you will need to write your name on the back of your tote ticket; or if you purchase a drink and/or food, write your name on back of those slips and deposit it into the barrel and who knows, it could be you!
* If you would like to watch the race from a venue in the building, a buffet lunch is on offer at a cost of only R250 per person.
