Racing season is here: and first out of the gates is the 153rd L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate this coming Saturday 11th January. It’s time to dress up in traditional blue and white, drink bubbly and scream at horses with names like Sweet Fanny Adams until they win you the big bucks. Here’s how to look the part in winning style.

You want to dress up a bit, make an effort over and above what you’d do during the week. But you also don’t want to over do it and end up looking like something out of a Kaapse Klopse band. We’re hoping you’re there to win the race money, not the best dressed title.
