About the Cup

About the Cape Town Met

The biggest race of the summer sees South Africa’s top racehorses compete for a purse of R5 million. While tradition and equestrian pageantry may be central to the historic horse race, the Cape Town Met (formerly the Sun Met) has become synonymous with decadent glamour. 

Since the first official running of The Metropolitan Mile (later shortened to ‘The Met’) in 1883, the event has been a highlight of the social calendar. Every year on the last Saturday in January, Africa’s richest horse race draws over 50 000 people to the Kenilworth Racecourse.

 

The Cape Town Met puts South Africa’s top racehorses on an even footing and features an honour roll which includes many of South Africa’s top racehorses, such as Ariel, Pocket Power, Wolf Power, Empress Club, London News and Horse Chestnut.
