The inaugural Investec Day Of Dreams at Kenilworth on Saturday 23 January promises a day of horseracing action previously unequalled on the African continent. With the bar being raised in terms of record breaking stakes, and two historic Gr1 features being contested, it doesn’t get much better than this.

The day marks the inaugural event of a unique  three year partnership between Investec and Cape Thoroughbred Sales.The global specialist bank and asset manager Investec, sponsors of the world renowned Derby Festival at Epsom Downs, will treat their clients and guests from around the globe to high class South African racing and local enthusiasts will be going along for the ride of a lifetime.

Both the Gr1 R1 million Klawervlei Majorca Stakes and the Gr1 R1 million Investec Cape

Derby have been moved a week forward from their usual berths on J&B Met day, and in line with expectations, have attracted capacity fields of great depth.
