We hope that you have pre-warned the family about the outstanding day they will be experiencing tomorrow at Turffontein Racecourse. If it’s not the Weekend Market food stalls that have you salivating, it may be the exhibition of the “horsepower” of yesteryear that will have you racing down to the course.

It’s a day that will deliver “ship loads” of prawns- after all it is the Joburg Prawn Festival along with great food, drinks and live entertainment. Various types of seafood dishes will be on offer and for those not so keen on seafood- there will be other food stalls to tantalise your taste buds. Delivering on a promise of no long queues this year!

Our Guineas Day Gin & Craft Beer tent was such a success that we signed them up immediately to bring their team of mixologists to the course. Don’t miss your opportunity to find out which is your favourite mix(es).

It is certainly a day for the whole family with plenty of entertainment with the highlight of course being the running of the 12 races, and in particular the SA Classic (Grade 1) and the Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic (Grade 1) over 1800m as well as the H F Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes (Grade 1) which features the current SA Champion Racehorse LEGAL EAGLE.
