Following the recent announcement of increased prize money levels in the Western Cape, Cape Racing is excited to announce the launch of a rejuvenated juvenile programme.

The first sighting for the juveniles will be the annual 900m dashes for both colts and fillies at the end of November. These races will lead up to two newly created juvenile events on Guineas Day which is being run on the 17th of December.

The Commonwealth Cup will be run at juvenile plate conditions for colts and geldings while the Summer Coronation will be run for the fillies. These two races will carry a prize of R200 000 each.


The most exciting news is the formation of a 3 leg Summer Juvenile Series. The series will be made up as follows:

1st Leg:

Trippi Stakes, L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Day: 7 January 2023
Increased stake from R100 000 in 2022, up to R350 000 in 2023
2nd Leg:

The City of Cape Town Summer Juveniles Stakes (Listed), World Sports Betting Cape Town Met Day: 28 January 2023
Increased stake from R175 000 in 2022, up to R500 000 in 2023
3rd Leg:

The Cape Racing Cape of Good Hope Nursery (Gr3), Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby Day: 25 February 2023
Increased stake from R250 000 in 2022, up to R750 000 in 2023

In total, the Summer Juvenile Series has R1 600 000 on offer, a vast increase from the R525 000 for the three races last season.
