Intercontinental Village 2014 set to thrill

Turffontein Racecourse will be a mecca of multiculturalism on Saturday 26 April when it plays host to the third and final leg of the prestigious SASCOC Triple Crown as well as the much anticipated annual Intercontinental Village Day.

Race goers should be prepared to have their taste buds do some of the racing – from continent to continent that is – as the traditional foods of a variety of countries will be sold at trackside stalls throughout the day. Each country will also be represented through an array of colourful crafts, costumes and live on-stage entertainment making for a hugely festive day at the races.

Live entertainment from the traditions of South Africa, Portugal, China and Scotland and more will be performed on stage between races and is sure to get everyone that’s trackside up on their feet.

It’s a fun filled day for all including the little ones with not only the atmosphere of all the trackside stalls and music, but a mechanical bull, slides, a rock wall and a jumping castle all at their fingertips to ensure it’s a fun day out for all.

The third leg of the SASCOC Triple Crown will see organisers giving away 1 of three VW Polo Vivo’s to one lucky race goer. Entry into the competition is free and all you need to do is be on course to stand a chance of winning!

Phumelela Gaming’s National Marketing Manager, Michael Varney commented, “It is thrilling to see the growth of the crowd attendance over the first two legs of the Triple Crown and this is due to the full race day experience we aim to achieve for all ages and fortunately it seems to be working”.

Race goers will only enjoy the finest SA racing has to offer with the running of the R1.5 million SA Derby the feature race, among a race card stacked with top quality fields.  A total of R150,000 will be donated by Phumelela Gaming to the various charities which have been selected to partake on the day.

So get ready for an exciting day at Johannesburg’s premier racing destination and prepare for a day of great racing, food, entertainment and culture!

Gates open at 11h00, entry and parking is FREE.
