Three days of festivities culminates in the Horses For Causes charity raceday on Saturday, 11 February at Kenilworth Racecourse.
It’s a day that sees the horseracing community rally behind a cause that supports 14 charities with the action on the track providing an exciting sideshow on a day when giving takes centre stage.
Among them are the Chaeli Campaign, Kronendal Music Academy, Bully Proof, The Lucky Lucky Foundation, The Sunflower Fund, Thrive, Santa Shoebox Project, Masi Corp, Sporting Chance, JP21 Project, the charitable endeavour by Proteas cricketer JP Duminy, the Cart Horse Protection Association as well as the South African Jockey Academy.
There’s lots to keep the entire family entertained on the day with mini-cricket, soccer and rugby, a jazz band and other music and dance performances. The Vineyard Oval Market will also be taking place which means lots of food and craft stall options.
