Eight feature races on a twelve race card at Kenilworth on Met day hosts 293 entries from eight Gauteng trainers, three East Cape conditioners, and a duo from Summerveld in KwaZulu-Natal.

The Gr1 Sun Met bumper card declares at 11h00 on Monday, with the draws for the feature being done on Tuesday.

The nationally representative assault on Kenilworth includes northern regulars Sean Tarry and Mike de Kock, with Lucky Houdalakis, Corne Spies, Joey Soma, Paul Peter and Ashley Fortune also bidding for the big money. Geoff Woodruff has a single entry – which will race out of his Milnerton satellite yard.

Gavin Smith, Alan Greeff and Yvette Bremner are set to travel from the Eastern Cape, while Dennis Drier and Frank Robinson are the two KZN hopefuls in the mix.

Saftote betting on the big day opens on Monday 27 January with an anticipated Pick 6 pool of R18 million in the offing.

IOL reports that the likes of media mogul and businesswoman Bonang Matheba as well as Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi will be at the forefront of the fashion for the big day.

Under the theme African Luxury: Visionaries, Matheba is not only the face of the event but will also bring House of BNG MCC as the official celebration partner.

“We want to pay homage to the visionaries in 2020 by affording a platform at the Sun Met where creatives of all kinds can showcase their ideas through fashion, music, and horse racing – where imagination comes to life in all aspects,” said Anthony Leeming, Sun International Chief Executive Officer.

    Frankie,Frankie, why did you not tell us Hawwaam was on his way to the UK after the Met? Question is,will he run in the Met.


    It should be a blockbuster if all of Celtic Sea, Queen Supreme, Clouds Unfold and the Fillies Guineas winner Missisippi Burning line up in the Majorca.

    Especially Missisippi Burning, then we can take some measurements about her ability

    I am hoping the SunMet is going to be a vast improvement on the disastrous event of last year. The Met has slowly deteriorated over the years; as the ordinary, regular racegoer has been shunted off the racecourse and banned from enjoying the picnicking and partying on the lawns. The event is now about Kenilworth Racing and Sun International sucking up to celebrities and once a year attendees, who have no interest in racing and who probably don’t put 2c on a bet! They are there for the free food and drink.

    Let’s see if this year will be an improvemenr or if the event will continue to die out.
