The Ultimate Stallion Affair #TUSA 2020
November 7 @ 10:00 am - November 8 @ 2:00 am
Hosted by The Ultimate Stallion Affair
The Borrowdale Racecourse is internationally acknowledged as one of Africa’s Greatest Horseracing venue, the “The Ultimate Stallion Affair” almost similar to the iconic “Vodacom Durban July” will be run without interruption every year going forward
And, just as the ladies at that very first meeting will be dressed up in their finest outfits, The Ultimate Stallion Affair day for the next few decades will become the leading fashion and entertainment event of the year in the country with visitors and media from overseas making special trips to Harare to enjoy the event or report one of the greatest racing event on the African continent.
While it is a day of excitement, fashion and entertainment, it is all about the finest thoroughbreds in the country coming together for the greatest challenge of their careers. For the horses, the jockeys, the trainers, the owners and the grooms, it is the pinnacle of their racing experience just to be involved in the race and the debate about which of the many entries can lift the ultimate prize begins when the first entries are received with the intensity of the debate growing steadily to fever pitch as the big day approaches.
With just 18 runners taking part in the big race on the first Saturday in November, there is another 2200 meter event on the card in which those that missed the cut can compete. There have been occasions when the winner of this race has posted a quicker time than the winner of the big race itself.
The Ultimate Stallion Affair is the race around which the country’s racing industry will revolve, the race will put Zimbabwean racing on the international map and the race that will gain international recognition as the showcase of the country’s standard of thoroughbred.
And yes, it is one of the most exciting and entertaining racing event in Zimbabwe and, if you have not been to a similar event before, you have just got to be there this year!!
