The date of the 155th running of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate (LQP) – South Africa’s
premier horseracing day – has been confirmed for Saturday, January 9, 2016, at Kenilworth Race-course, guaranteeing a magnificent start to the year’s social calendar.
LQP is once more set to be an exhilarating day of horse racing – the day’s 12-race card will set South Africa’s finest thoroughbreds against each other as they pursue the coveted trophy and R1 million purse.
Listed by The Telegraph in the United Kingdom in 2014 as one of the top five race days in the world, LQP is ranked alongside other illustrious races, including the likes of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (Paris), Breeder’s Cup (California), Melbourne Cup and Dubai World Cup.
As soon as we get more information, we’ll update this post (and hopefully add a competition for you guys).
