The Gauteng Summer Cup is The People’s Race
The Gauteng Summer Cup, a unique spectacle of sport, style and entertainment, returns to the grand and historic Turffontein racecourse on Saturday 1 December 2018.
The Gauteng Summer Cup has brought together Joburg’s communities since its inception in 1897, with crowds flocking to Turffontein to experience the excitement of horse racing. Boasting exemplary quality fields and large prize money, the R2 million race offers a day of electrifying entertainment, while making the sport accessible and fun for young and old alike.
A highlight of the day is the inaugural half-time show that was launched last year. Taking place just before the main race, to announce it in the grandest way possible, this year’s extravaganza will feature an impressive line-up of drum majorettes, a massive field band, a choir and incredible dancers. Watch this space to hear more about our headline band.
Everyone is welcome at The People’s Race. Bring the whole family and don yourself in your most stylish Summer Chic outfits as you prepare for a day of sartorial style and unforgettable fun.
