Horse racing is as much a part of summer in Cape Town as visits to the beach and poolside cocktails.

There’s no better way to celebrate this sizzling season than at one of South Africa’s most renowned social, fashion and sporting events, The Sun Met.

The biggest race of the summer sees South Africa’s top racehorses compete for a purse of R5 million. While tradition and equestrian pageantry may be central to the historic horse race, The Sun Met (formerly the J&B Met) has become synonymous with decadent glamour. Here, fashion, celebrities and high-stakes betting meet in a sophisticated and exhilarating spectacle to celebrate the grace and speed of South Africa’s top racehorses.

Since the first official running of The Metropolitan Mile (later shortened to ‘The Met’) in 1883, the event has been a highlight of the social calendar. Every year on the last Saturday in January, Africa’s richest horse race draws over 50 000 people to the Kenilworth Racecourse. An important contest, The Sun Met puts South Africa’s top racehorses on an even footing and features an honour roll which includes many of South Africa’s top racehorses, such as Ariel, Pocket Power, Wolf Power, Model Man, Empress Club, London News and Horse Chestnut.

If you want to experience the world of celebrity couture, endless champagne and thoroughbred horses in January, put your best foot forward in the fashion department (there’s always a theme to The Sun Met, with prizes awarded to the Best Dressed Couple) and book 2018 Sun Met packages through Edusport.
