This year’s 55th edition of Castle Tankard event is one not to miss as consumers get an opportunity to emotionally engage with the brand at the Borrowdale race course with a blast from Zimbabwe’s award winning Dancehall artist, Winky D, known for his energetic live performances.
The Ninja President, as Winky D is popularly known ( for his poverty biting and poverty protesting lyrics), will share the stage with rising musician Andy Muridzo and dendera ace Sulumani Chimbetu alongside DJ Stavo, who will be on the decks.
The Gafa hitmaker’s enthusiasm and energy on stage have seen him outshining international artists on various local platforms and also giving memorable shows internationally.
The Castle Tankard Horse Racing event is the first ever sponsored horse race in Africa and it is no exaggeration that it remains the most prestigious horse race in Zimbabwe. Castle Lager’s relationship with horse racing dates to around 1904, when the castle brand first played a significant role as an advertiser.
Castle lager not only delivers a message of coming together wherever and whenever it lands in the various segments of its consumers, but also the coming together of the best ingredients to make the best beer in the world.
“For the first time, ever consumers of Castle lager will participate in a promotion named the Castle Tankard Experience and get a chance to win 1 of 20 Castle Tankard Experience packages valued at $1,000 each for them and their partner,” says Delta Beverage’s general manager, Munyaradzi Nyandoroh, adding that, “The package includes two nights for two at the Meikles Hotel, an Edgar’s voucher worth $500, VIP access to the Castle Tankard event and $100 worth of betting coupons.”
To add to the excitement the mid promotion draw for the Pint 4 Pint promotion will be held at the Castle Tankard event, at the Borrowdale Race Course. The prizes for the mid promotion draw are as follows 1st prize $5,000, 2nd prize $3,000 and 3rd prize $2,000 and $500 consolation prizes to 5 winners.
The castle tankard horse race has left a formidable mark to reckon within the horse racing fraternity. It has stood the test of time. It is growing bigger and better every year. It is a race with a history to our country. It is a race which has helped to develop communities around us through employment creation.
