The race day is set to be all glitz, glamour and elegance, with Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco in attendance. There will be a few races throughout the day, but the main event is the R1-million Empress Club Stakes.
The event will start at 11am and run until 7pm. As to be expected, high fashion will be the order of the day, with the best-dressed couples set to receive cash prizes. The Diamond Drop raffle, which is a lucky draw for a R150 000 diamond, is on the cards as well.
Adult tickets cost R50 for general entry, with children under 18 paying R20. There are hospitality packages from R1 000 to R1 250, which include food, access to the champagne bar, Diamond Drop tickets and entertainment. Proceeds for the day will go to the South African Red Cross Society, the Highveld Horse Care Unit and Gugulesizwe Primary School.
