Rated as one of the world’s top five horse racing events, this internationally recognized and locally renowned event is one of the most established equestrian ‘to-dos’ on the globe’s calendar. The illustrious competition offers up an assortment of lavish entertainment to accompany the thunder of hooves round the green, including haute couture challenges, a killer after party and an afternoon filled with shoulder rubbing and schmoozing.
