All the Fab Photos as South Africa holds the Inaugural L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Festival | See Photos of Boity, David Tlale, Lindiwe Suttle & More



A number of international punters and local celebrities flew out especially to join in the success of the inaugural L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Festival which saw South Africa’s top thoroughbreds come together as champions at Kenilworth Racecourse on Friday and Saturday with Legal Eagle taking the coveted L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate.

South Africa’s horse of the year and defending champion, Legal Eagle, ridden by Anton Marcus thrilled punters when he proudly strutted away with the R1.5 million purse, all the while opening an exhilarating 2017 racing season.

The Cape’s premier horseracing and social festival impressed track-side too, initially at the Garden Party with a full jazz band entertaining beautiful guests as they sipped on sparkling wine and enjoyed a delectable harvest table of gourmet delights.

On Saturday, 5000 attendees went all out and donned their most stylish blue and white, including international and local celebrities and socialites- most notably the English royal family’s Princess Eugenie, sport stars such as Ryk Neethling, Sean Fitzpatrick, Jeffrey Boycott, Jacques Kallis, Huw Jones and Michael Holding, TV and radio personalities Boity Thulo, Bonnie Mbuli, Siv Ngesi, Lindiwe Suttle and Tracey Lange, the singer Matthew Gold, eminent SA designers Laduma Ngxokolo and David Tlale and F1 racer Eddie Jordan to name a few.
