13 Dec Win Tickets to the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Horse Racing Festival


The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Racing Festival is back and we’re giving you the chance to win 2 Stud Club tickets (VIP) to one of the year’s most glamorous events. All you need to do is tell us why you deserve to win this awesome prize (in the comments below) and share on Facebook – it’s that simple. And, because we care so much, we’ve extended the competition to the 2nd of January.

Next year’s event takes place at Kenilworth Racecourse, Cape Town, from Friday to Saturday, 5-6 January 2018 and will be the second year that the festival takes place over two days.


The Friday will see a limited number of guests will be able to experience the LQP Garden Party (R 500 per person) complete with bottomless L’Ormarins MCC, Heineken-on-tap, a harvest table, live jazz and access to the racing. This is probably the best value ticket of the weekend as it also gives guests access to the famous Style Lounge Village on the second day of the festival.


Don’t miss your chance to join this VIP experience at the social event of the summer with CSA and L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate.


Terms & Conditions:

Flights and accommodation is not included.
The prize is not exchangeable for cash.

    I think I thouroughly deserve two tickets. I am already going ! I wouldnt miss Cape Towns bestest event. But.. our picnic table for ten is already fully occupied and we need to provide for two more tickets for family members who lost out and , as a result ,are in a dark space and sulking full time. The ten lucky ones are busy preening themselves and otherwise gearing up for the biggest bestest Cape Town event. The two unlucky dudes are sucking lemons. The only way to get them out of this sulk is to get them tickets and wouldnt it be wonderful if those were “won” on a complimentary basis.

    Please appreciate that these guys are really really dikbek at the moment and need some serious LQP intervention to get them back .

    Yours in anticipation.

    As it is one of the Cape Town most stylish Events and me being the lover of Cape Town and style. I’ve been attending the queen’s plate for the past six years religiously and love everything about it. Being from Cape Town I’m patriotic about anything from my city but this makes it easy to love. Everyone looks beautifully elegant in their blue and white. If you picked me as a winner I won’t disappoint the legacy. Thank you

  • My name is Zanele and I am 30 years old. I have three reasons why I want to win this competition. First one is I have never ever won anything in my life, Secondly I have never been to any horse racing festival. Thirdly 2017 has been the most challengi, painful year ever. In April 2017 my house was burned down by a fire and I was left with the clothes I was wearing. In July 2017on my birthday day month I got involved in a car accident and my car was written off.in October I buried my father and grandfather the people who meant the world to me. May their beautiful souls rest in peace. I wish I could go or be at the place with lovely people, people who would tell everything is gonna be alright. As the person whose passionate about beauty, fashion and this will be a great experience.

  • Within my four years in Cape Town I have never attended the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and have always been fascinated by the blue and white glam. Also my friend is in time and due to work commitment we never got to truly explore Cape Town together.

    January 4, 2018 at 9:05 pm
  • It would be a dream come true!! I’m a young designer and the L’Ormarins Queens Plate would be the best way to start the Fashion season 2018.
