I know it’s been quite some time since the L'Ormarins Queen’s Plate, the Sun Met has come and gone. We’ve won and lost but in the end, it’s all about the fashion and fun for me.
This year LQP was held over two days, the Friday day consisted of a garden party in which a live band played, the bubbly flowed and the food was scrumptious.
In true LQP style, we tried to keep to the blue and white tradition as much as possible. The first-day Hishaam and I were dressed completely in navy blue and the second day I found myself completely in white. Hishaam and my look from the first day at LQP were named one of the must-see looks by News24, it was quite exciting.
On the main day (the Saturday) I found myself chilling the day away. It was a great betting day for me, though, I made R600 and only spent a R100. It was the highlight of my day.
Big winners on the day were as follows:
Winner of the MAINE CHANCE FARMS PADDOCK STAKES (WFA) (Grade 1) (For Fillies and Mares ) was Bela-Bela trained by Justin Snaith and Anton Marcus.
- Winner of the L'ORMARINS QUEEN'S PLATE (WFA) (Grade 1) was Legal Eagle trained by Sean Tarry and ridden by Anton Marcus, the jockey.
- Jockey Anton Marcus rode 4 winners on the the day!
