Tomorrow Joburg’s most prestigious and oldest horseracing event takes place at the Turffontein Racecourse. I’m talking about the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup and tomorrow I break my GSSC virginity 😉 I’ll be wearing an awesome #MoreJozi suit by designer extraordinaire, Diaan Daniels, which I’m super excited about. The who’s who will be there too, which is equally as exciting and it’s the perfect way to wrap up 2015 – there are other events on the go, but this is the last big one. To be honest, I’m relieved because I’m WELL tired, but a little bit of fun in the sun and at the races never hurt anybody.
As far as entertainment goes, there’s a helluva lot on the cards for tomorrow. For one the musical lineup is insanely good:
- Mi Casa
- Cassper Nyovest
- Vin Deysel (947)
My friend Dineo Moeketsi is once again the ambassador for this prestigious event. I’ve seen her slay at the media launch of the event. She then slayed at the Barrier Draw, so tomorrow is going to be a big day for the star. Can’t wait to see her – and the other fashionistas (not that I get fashion but you know what I mean).
There’s this charity dash with some of SA’s biggest celebs including my friend and wonderful co-host on Cliffcentral.com, Jennifer Su. Others on the lineup include Top Billing’s Jon Boynton-Lee, his lover Jay Anstey, TV personalities Kgomotso Christopher, Danilo Acquisto, Hayley Watters, Stacey Holland, Nicole Flint, Tamerine Jardine, Stevie French, Theo Jantjies, rugby stars Robbie Coetzee and Courtnall Skosan too. They’ll all be running in the Racing. It’s A Rush Celebrity Charity Dash in aid of the SOS Children’s Villages of South Africa – a whopping R800 000 will be donated to them after the race. Incredible!
There’s also a mo-kini sprint in the evening, where some 40 dudes will be running in pink mankini costumes – it’s siff, but apparently a draw card for many 😉 A couple of beverages throughout the day are bound to get those daring souls onto the race track!
It’s going to be a great day out and I’m really looking forward to it. If you’re coming, let’s meet up… otherwise I’ll see you on the socials #SANSUISummerCup vibes.
