The event that everyone who considers themselves to be fancy needs to be at to kick off 2014, has to be the L’Ormarin’s Queen Plate, which is taking place on the 11th of January at the Kenilworth Race course. The celebration of the 152nd annual royal Queens Plate horserace is going to be yet another gathering of South Africa’s elite, garbed only in Blue & White under the African sun and is by far one of our favourite events of the year – especially because of the extra care put in by purveyors of high quality vodka and good times, SKYY Vodka with their Style Lounge, which has become a fixture synonymous with the event.

The Queens Plate has distinguished itself as a prestigious occasion celebrating elegant art, fashion and sophisticated culinary offerings, which is why the SKYY Vodka Style Lounge is such a good fit for the event. In preparation for next year’s Queens Plate horserace taking place in early January in Kenilworth, SKYY Vodka is offering the public a chance of winning an exclusive VIP Skyy Vodka Experience worth R 60, 000 to anyone who becomes the member of the SKYY Vodka Owner’s Circle, a digital portal to a virtual horserace. All you have to do is create a profile on the, enter the virtual 5 000m horserace and the more you tweet, using unique #hashtags, the more you stand a chance of winning one of the two Skyy Vodka Experiences on offer.
