The invitations have just gone out for the bigger, better – and even more exciting Avontuur Estate Gr 1 Fillies Guineas race day on Saturday, 8 December!

Avontuur Fillies Guineas 2012

Once again VIP guests will have  a treat waiting for them in the 4th floor Peninsula room where a wonderful lunch, coffee and cheese stations and afternoon High Tea awaits them in a room decorated to celebrate the eminent arrival of our new imported stallion, Oratorio,  from Australia.  The cost pp is R350 and bookings can be made with Moerieda at or by phoning her at +27 21 855-3450 during office hours.

For the less serious visitor, but still someone who wants to have  a lot of fun, the Somerset Room is offering a day of good food, casual dining and lovely views of the race course at only R230 pp.  Bookings can be made at

The good news for the hundreds of casual visitors who just want to make use of the beatufiul facilities at the race course and have a family fun day, is the introduction of the new Inter-continental village concept where 9 countries will be given space to exhibit the food, crafts, music and dance of their country of origin – which will immediately add a vibe to the outside areas of the race course.  Free kiddies entertainment, a beer garden serving imported beers and Avontuur wine, live music and fun under the oak trees, will make this one of the highlights of the annual racing calender. Gates open at 11h00 and entrance is free for the whole family.
