Johannesburg’s premier horse racing event welcomed familiar and new faces to the launch of the 2015 Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup at the Copper Bar in Bryanston on Tuesday evening. The uber exclusive event marked the official countdown to this year’s More Jozi horse race, which takes place at Turffotein Racecourse on 28 November 2015.
The launch kicked off with the acoustic sounds of Warren Gravies, while guests mingled and sipped on their cocktails and enjoyed the backdrop of the beautiful sunset views of Johannesburg. Dressed in her Queteria and George design, Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup ambassador Dineo Moeketsi welcomed guests to the event. The actress and TV presenter not only introduced this year’s impressive musical line-up, but also unveiled some of the other exciting activities expected at the races, including the hugely popular 13th race – the Mokini race. Another fan-favourite at the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup is the It’s A Rush Celebrity Dash, which attracts some of the country’s most loved celebs. The names of this year’s dashers were revealed at the launch, which includes radio and TV presenter Jennifer Su, actress Jay Anstey and Lions rugby star Courtnall Skosan among others. It’s a Rush Celebrity Charity Dash, now in its fifth year will see the winning celebrity handing over R844 151.25 to the official charity recipient, SOS Children’s Villages.
The Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup is Johannesburg’s premier horseracing event, packed with something for everyone, including a fashion show for up and coming designers, Summer Garden and Summer Sound Experience hospitality packages, and the golden ticket to the Jozi Circle after-party. This over and above the main event that features top thoroughbreds battling it out for the staggering stake of R2 million.
Hosting partners Phumelela Gaming are also thrilled to be staging this prestigious event. Clyde Basel, Phumelela Sales and Marketing Executive said “We are so proud of the relationship that we have built with the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup and feel very privileged to be associated with such a prestigious event”.
