Eastern Cape Gets Trendy

Saturday 12th May, sees the 57th running of the Listed East Cape Derby, proudly sponsored by World Sports Betting for the 2nd year now. The day is full of excitement and kicks off with Algoa FM broadcasting live from Fairview Racecourse in the morning ahead of the race meeting.

With 9 races carded for the day, a brilliant vibe with picnic areas and public seating close to the rail, the public areas are bound to be chockablock. And for the aspiring fashionistas – Sophisticate Models- PE’s largest modelling agency has arranged 3 fashion shows which include accredited South African designers such as Gerhard Meiring Couture, Jason Kieck, Anita Seal, Braemore Lundall-Sauls of Braemore Designs, Andre Cloete from Andre Cloete Design Studio and Alex Van Vuuren. This will give you ample time to get some ideas ahead of the Champions Season in KZN, and more importantly, the Vodacom Durban July which takes place the first Saturday in July.  

The little ones will be fully entertained with the Kiddies Fun Zone which will be available and of course, and what would a day at the races be without lucky draws and plenty of give-aways.

For those looking for something a little more sophisticated than a picnic table and an array of food stalls, book for the VIP Buffet Lunch at R350 pp (available on a strictly “by booking” basis) and this will includes race cards, welcome wines and a wonderful Winter Buffet Meal.
