This is certainly something that is in my calendar, and has been for quite a while, that’s for sure, and whatever I do, I am making sure that I do not miss out on The Gauteng Sansui Summer Cup.
Set to be the social highlight of the year, the Sansui Summer Cup takes place this year on the 25th of November at the grand and historic Turffontein Racecourse.
The annual event is not only the province’s oldest and largest race, but also the finale of a year of thrilling horse racing events.
“By harnessing the power of the people, we have ensured a truly Gauteng race day – a race day that connects people, creates jobs, supports entrepreneurship and celebrates the multiculturalism of our beautiful Gauteng,” says Clyde Basel, Phumelela Racing and Events Executive.
The Sansui Summer Cup combines the finest in horse racing with a fun, family oriented day out. With the main focus on the exhilarating horse races, the event is however packed with entertainment for people from all walks of life.
This is one of our country’s biggest race days, boasting exemplary quality fields and large prize money, the R2 million race offers a day of electrifying entertainment, while making the sport accessible and fun for young and old alike.
There’s something for everyone at The People’s Race, and visitors can look forward to a stunning display of fresh South African talent, from roving fashion shows to local bands, a large-scale field band and a wide variety of different hospitality areas, as well as tons for the kiddies, and of course good food, drinks and music, in a beautiful outdoor setting, right in the heart of the city.
