Cape Town’s most elegant and sophisticated horse racing event is back! The Cape Town MET 2022 ,presented by World Sports Betting, springs into back into life this season and promises to sizzle.

Live your ultimate MET fantasy by stepping into the ultra-luxurious Garden of Glamour – coming 29 January 2022. Set against the backdrop of Kenilworth Racecourse’s rolling lawns, the official theme, Glam Garden, is perfect for this prestigious event.

Frolic through the high-end fashion, mingle with sparkling celebrities and sip on cocktails while enjoying a day at the races. Here, fashion, celebrities and high-stakes betting meet in a sophisticated and exhilarating spectacle to celebrate the grace and speed of South Africa’s top racehorses. The all-day main event features 11 races ridden by South Africa’s finest jockeys on our country’s top horses.

Since the first official running of The Metropolitan Mile (later shortened to ‘The Met’) in 1883, the event has been a highlight of South Africa’s social calendar. Every year on the last Saturday in January, Africa’s richest horse race draws over thousands of people to the Kenilworth Racecourse.

This year the Cape Town MET will adhere to strict COVID protocols and supporters without an ID and valid vaccination card will not be granted access to the grounds.

Toast the winners before heading to the after parties where you are guaranteed to party the night away with incredible music sets from world class DJs and leading local artists.
