What is at the top of your priority list? After all, it's not just a horse race it's a fashion, entertainment and lifestyle extravaganza!

This year's theme "Stars of Africa" is exciting and close to the hearts and homes of all South Africans, but more so it touches on the high class of horses and jockeys that run the Greyville track and all of the 'A' list celebrities that loyally attend the exclusive event. "Stars of Africa" will have everyone in dazzling golds and silvers with diamonds and all kinds of sparkle. So it's your time to shine with this theme; we expect to see ethnic, authentic African designs fit for royalty. There will be a splendid line up of fashion shows to attend so make sure you dress up and don't miss out.
