FAIRVIEW’S SPECTACULAR DERBY

BY Fairview Racecourse

The SW Security East Cape Derby and Prawn Festival meeting at Fairview on Sunday was an enormous success and a vibrant crowd of over 5000 racegoers cheered home the horses enthusiastically for all nine of the races.


The Joey Ramsden-trained St Tropez stamped himself as a stayer with a very bright future when sauntering to victory in the main race of the day, the Grade 3 Cape Derby over 2400m, under his world class jockey Anton Marcus.
Later, the Alan Greef-trained two-year-old colt Juan Two Three put himself in pole position to be named the Eastern Cape Champion Juvenile Male when winning the Listed Epol Dahlia Plate over 1200m easily and impressively under Greg Cheyne.
The weekend’s fun started on Friday with an eight race meeting on the polytrack.


The Prawn Festival meeting on the Sunday has become one of the most anticipated family fun days on the Port Elizabeth social calendar and the carnival-like atmosphere at this year’s event proved that it is growing from strength to strength.


1800 kilograms of prawns were sold and patrons also lapped up the plentiful on course entertainment that was provided.


The crowd lingered on until the last horse had been led away from the winner’s enclosure. They didn’t seem to want the day to end.
Phumelela’s Sales and Marketing Exec, Clyde Basel commented “We couldn’t be happier with the success and growth of the Derby weekend. Fairview hasn't seen that many people in ages and we can grow our database in order to engage with new faces, hopefully bring them back to the races and invite them to be a part of the Racing. It's a Rush campaign, a process that takes them through the various levels of participation".

Racing purists will have a lot to look forward to as the meeting coincides with the 54th running of the Grade 3 SW Security Solutions East Cape Derby and for the first time the Listed Dahlia Plate will be included on the action-packed nine race schedule.

Algoa FM will be broadcasting live from Fairview from 09h00 to 12h00 and plenty of additional entertainment will be provided while the racemeeting is in progress. There will be a Mother’s Day market at the bottom of the grandstand where a variety of vendors will be advertising and selling their merchandise. The proceedings will be peppered throughout the day by lucky draws sponsored by Makro and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University will stage both a fashion show and fashion competition. The little ones will also be provided for as there will be a Kiddies Play area and pony rides. Guests booked in the HB Christian Room at R300 per person, will receive a VIP luncheon, welcoming wines on their tables as well as racecards and gifts.
Don’t miss the Bay’s best Mother’s Day!
