LEGAL EAGLE WILL BE ONE OF THE STAR TURNS ON CHAMPIONS DAY

We’re gearing up for a big day at Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday as the curtain comes down on the Highveld Feature Season. It’s a day that will see heroes celebrated and ensure that their names live long in the memory of South African horseracing. We’re thrilled to see the reigning Horse of the Year, Legal Eagle, back to defend his crown in the R4-million Premier’s Champions Challenge (Gr 1).

For the racing purists, the opportunity to see horses of this calibre in the flesh is a reason to celebrate. 

Racegoers will also be spoilt for choice in the Intercontinental Village with delicacies from different parts of the world offered up from our food vendors. On stage, the cultural performances will keep everyone entertained between races.

There’s also the chance to win a ride around the track in a Ferrari and the big prize of the day will see one lucky racegoer walk away with a R25 000 cash prize in our on-course giveaway.

It’s a final hurrah as the curtain comes down on the SA Triple Crown and we wait in anticipation to see which horse claims the SA Derby over the 2450m trip. 

Just some of the reasons to come racing this weekend.
