R300k maiden on the Royal Raceday

R300 000 Monaco Sport of Kings Charity Maiden Sprint on Royal Raceday


There will be 18 maidens lining up for the R300 000 Monaco Sport of Kings Charity Maiden Sprint over 1160m at Turffontein on Saturday 15 April.

The event takes place on The Royal Raceday and will be run alongside the Grade 1 HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes.

At the request of the sponsors, this Maiden Sprint has unique entry conditions and aims to give as many owners of maidens as possible, a chance at winning. The race is open to all maidens which have run at least three times and allows for one horse per trainer at ballot stage, until a maximum field of 18 is drawn - the same rule applying to the three reserve runners. In that way, it gives smaller stables the chance to get a runner into this race.

The Monaco Sport of Kings is a group of businessmen from Monaco who have always shown support for this prestigious raceday and especially to the various charities this event has been able to support in the past.

The Maiden Sprint is another example of their generous sponsorship towards not only the race prize money, but also to the various charities who will receive contributions on the day.

The Royal Race Day is Day four of 4Racing’s “The Championships” season. It is a Ladies Day and more exciting information on the theme, including prizes for the “Best Dressed”, as well as other initiatives at the event will follow in due course.

As this raceday is a premier feature day on the Highveld calendar, the Monaco Sport of Kings Charity Maiden Sprint qualifies as a Racehorse Owners Association “Super Bonus Race”, where the winning owner can walk away with a R40 000 bonus, if they are an ROA member in good standing.
