Magnum Race Day Orientation

The University of Cape Town (UCT) RAG race day has been revived in the inaugural running of the 2014 Magnum Mile at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday.

The UCT RAG are thus back at Kenilworth for the first time in 12 years and the day will raise funds for their charity arm SHAWCO (Students’ Health and Welfare Centres Organisation).

“We’re thrilled to have the students back on the course. This is such an exciting event that will bring more youth to the sport, and we’re looking at building a solid and long-lasting relationship with UCTgoing forward,” said Clyde Basel, Marketing and Sales Executive of racing operator Phumelela.

The theme of the day will be “Great Gatsby Flair”. And just furlongs away from centre stage, fillies of another kind will vie for the Best Dressed Award in the fashion stakes. The charity element will be equally important on the day, with the sponsors all contributing to SHAWCO, the student-run NGO based at UCT.

“I have been eager to put a varsity race day together for some time now and it wouldn’t have been achievable without the backing of the sponsor – Magnum Cream Liqueur. I believe this event will become one of the biggest attractions on the racing calendar for years to come,” said Jonathan Snaith, the spokesperson for the Magnum Mile.

The Varsity Paddock hospitality will see world-class acts such as Gangs of Ballet, DJ Ready D and Dean Fuel creating a sensational atmosphere throughout the day. Varsity Paddock tickets are available through for those 18 and older at R65.

For the more educated gamblers there is hospitality in the main grandstand at R200-a-head whichincludes a full buffet.

A luncheon can be booked through Racecourse Caterers on 021 797 6037.
