RACING:

Be free, Run Wild at South Africa’s biggest sprint race event

Feel the energy, experience the thrill, and Run Wild at South Africa’s oldest, biggest and richest sprint race event, the Golden Horse Sprint Race Day 2014. You will be blown away by dazzling fashion, exhilarating horseracing and pulse-raising entertainment. It’s all happening at Pietermaritzburg’s Scottsville Racecourse on Saturday 24 May 2014.

With South Africa’s fastest sprinters competing and prize money of over R2-million, competition will be fierce. The stakes are always high in the two main sprint races; the Golden Horse Sprint, which this year carries a first prize bounty of R 750,000, and the Tsogo Sun Medallion Race, which offers a prize of R 600,000. In addition to being the largest sprint race event in South Africa, it is the only one to feature four Grade One sprint races.

FASHION: presented by Mango

A Glamorous Affair

As always, the Golden Horse Sprint Race Day will showcase outrageous designs by emerging and professional designers in the Fashion Design Competition. Designers and stylists are called to let their imaginations run wild and take their place in the spotlight.

The theme for this year’s Fashion Design Competition is “Glamorous Affair”. Designers are urged to step back to an era where dramatic, ground-sweeping dresses, regal gowns and the elegance of satin and lace were the order. There are five categories in the competition: Best Dressed Person; Most Glamorous Couple; Best Head Gear; Best Young Designer, and Avant-Garde. There is no limit to the number of categories designers can enter.

To register for entry to the competition, designers must arrive at Scottville Racecourse by no later than 09h00 on Saturday 24 May 2014. They must meet at the fashion stage area to register and be briefed.

Preliminary judging will commence at 09h30. For further information, contact Irene’s Models on Tel: +27 33 346 0791 or +27 82 808 3952 or email: irene@irenesmodels.co.za.
