2020 Cape Premier Sale Date Confirmed

Cape racing programme changes

The date for the 2020 Cape Premier Yearling Sale (CPYS) to be held once again at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, has been announced.

Having previously been held during the week leading up to the Sun Met race meeting, CTS will host next year’s sale earlier – on Thursday 16 January.

Wéhann Smith, CEO of CTS, explained that there were a number of reasons for the earlier date.

“The Cape racing calendar has seen the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and Sun Met moved out by a week and it made sense to host the sale the week after the LQP Festival. This will be fantastic news for visitors to the Cape who love being in Cape Town early in the new year. The new date also removes any conflict for attendees wishing to also attend the Magic Millions Sale in Australia or Karaka in New Zealand” said Smith.

The new date will add more excitement to the LQP Festival, and CTS will host several pre-sale events for guests and buyers.

With less than 6 months to go until CPYS 2020, Smith is excited that the confirmation of the date officially kicks off the planning and organizational process for CTS and the breeders.

Smith continues:

“I expect a strong local and international presence among buyers, and we are actively engaging with several new potential entrants to the South African market. We also hope for more progress on the export front which, if resolved this year, would certainly add even more excitement and a much-needed shot in the arm for our breeding industry.”

    Lovely legal drafting in the De Kock matter: blatant error in line one, an unreserved apology being given for a letter written in the future???

    Was a charge of criminal defamation ever laid?

    1. Editor says:

      Paul – that was picked up earlier and is being attended to by Mike de Kock’s legal counsel.
      We published it as received and have no authority to amend the contents.


    What are you saying Paul ?

  3. Paul says:

    Mr Ed: I understand you publish as received. The legal drafting was surely done by the opposing (not MDK) counsel. William: my comment relates to the (lack of) care in legal drafting, in a High Court matter. And as to the criminal defamation aspect, I just wondered if such a (criminal) charge had ever been laid.

    1. Editor says:

      Sure Paul – we have also added the Deed Of Settlement to the post

  4. Paul says:

    Now seen – thank you. It may be that Mr Simoto did not have the benefit of legal counsel. And apologies for raising such a pernickety point – but lawyers do charge not inconsiderable fees and the error does seem so glaring.
