Sun International, with its proud legacy in the gaming, hospitality and entertainment sector, has taken over the sponsorship reins of the most social and prestigious horse racing event, The Sun Met, which is scheduled to take place at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday, 28th January. Sun International has promised that the event will be filled with sophistication, elegance, glamour and world-class entertainment.
Socialites, punters and jockeys are all gearing up for this popular event with race goers encouraged to dress up to the official theme of Decades of Glamour.
The Decades of Glamour theme explores fashion trends and gives attendees a chance to express themselves with inspiration from the last eight decades – from vintage to modern, daring to classic -and attendees have been advised by fashion label KLUK CGDT to use the decade that inspires them as an influence and not a bible.
Attendees purchasing general access tickets will gain access to all public areas such as the grand stand, public catering facilities and public bars.
Sun International, created by Sol Kerzner, has revealed that three stages at the event will offer entertainment as well as 13 awesome horse races with betting facilities.
According to brand manager of Mumm Champagne, Etienne Cassuto, this year’s event will be different because of new partners, new experiences, a new level of racing and glam and an honorary guest list of influential celebrities and designers.
Rouvaun Smit, a leading South African commentator, revealed that the horse to bet on in the forthcoming event is the favourite Legal Eagle.

However, Marinaresco is in a favourable position to give him a run for his money, according to jockey Anton Marcus.
Yet another horse who stands a chance of winning is Whisky Baron and it would, therefore, appear that only one of three horses can win this Saturday’s Sun Met – Legal Eagle, Marinaresco or Whisky Baron.
Guess and The Guess Lifestyle Village at Kenilworth Racecourse will present the Official Sun Met After-party immediately after the completion of the final race.
The party will commence with Sketchy Bongo, featuring the dynamic vocals of Shekhina and Kyle Deutsch. This will be followed by Euphonic while Goodluck and Mi Casa, two of South Africa’s leading dance bands, will end the evening by thrilling the crowds with their top hits.
Sun International, the main sponsor of The Sun Met celebrated with Mumm, is currently the largest tourism, leisure and gaming group in Africa, operating or having an interest in a total of 18 resorts, luxury hotels and casinos.
