South Africa's premier horse-racing event, the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate, is excited to introduce an additional day to 2017's line-up of festivities, set to take place on Friday & Saturday 6th-7th January at Kenilworth Racecourse.

Owing to its growth and popularity with both local and international guests, the development promises to be a stunning new addition to the brand and firmly positions LQP as South Africa's biggest horse racing festival with an unparalleled 18 race card.

On Friday, 500 guests will be first to experience the inaugural LQP Garden Party (R500 per person) complete with bubbles, picnic baskets for groups of two, four, six, and ten, live jazz and access to the racing. In addition guests will also have access to the Style Lounge Village on the inaugural second day of the festival.
