The R2,5 million J&B Met to be run on January 31 at Kenilworth Racecourse next year will have even more shine attached to it than usual with the announcement that every person on course who has purchased a general entrance ticket stands a chance of winning a diamond pendant valued at a breath taking R500, 000.

The possibility of winning the pendant, sponsored by eDiamond, will add further attraction to South Africa’s most celebrated social and sporting occasion and there is sure to be massive demand for the various hospitality packages on offer.
Year after year the festive atmosphere and glamorous fashion of the day merges seamlessly with the prowess of the best thoroughbreds in the land that are cheered and wagered upon as they compete in the country’s most prestigious race.
It all takes place under the shadow of Table Mountain in one of the world’s most spectacularly beautiful cities.
Furthermore, J&B Met day is staged at the height of Cape Town’s famous summer which is characterised by its sun-drenched days and long, balmy evenings.
