  6. “THE TOP EVENT ON CAPE TOWN’S SOCIAL CALENDAR”
    If there is one thing I love and enjoy… then it’s dressing up and being outdoors. With the The running of the 157th Queen’s Plate and second year of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Racing Festival I get to do just that! Blue and White… it’s perfect for our CT weather and compliments our City so well. Oh what I would not give to share this with my husband, who luckily for me, loves dressing up just as much as I do. (dont tell him I said that) We dont often get to experience events like these… with parents to 2 girls… our time is full 🙂

    This is one event, I would love to attend with the man of my dreams. After the hectic year we had… we deserve this! To attend ONE OF THE 5 BEST RACES IN THE WORLD… would be an honour!!!!

    For the LOVE of Sophistication… Style…. Horses…. Blue & White and of Course… our Mother City!!! Take me to the RACERS!!!!!!!

  7. I would like to ask to please win these ticket. I have never attended one of these events and it would be an amazing first time experience. I request kindly to be strongly considered for these tickets.

  8. Living in Ireland but over for the cricket at Newlands every year I usually get to the L’Ormarins Plate on the Saturday but this year the dates for the cricket have changed.
    If I win the tickets I might be persuaded to go racing BUT can I wear green?

  9. I would love to treat my sister who has recently put her life on hold to look after our mom who suffered a major stroke this year, my sister is one of those few selfless people.

  10. A long time favourite in the heart of the Southern Suburbs, always a spectacular event. Oh please pick me!!
