The main race of the J&B Met at Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town was won by Past Master. Second place went to Mother Russia and third position was claimed by Run For It.
Mother Russia, who won the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate three weeks ago, was the bookmakers’ pre-race favourite. Last year’s J&B Met winner, River Jetez, is currently racing in Dubai and was hence unavailable to defend her title.
Some 50 000 people attended the iconic annual event, widely regarded as the highlight of South Africa’s horse racing and fashion calendar.
