The 39th run­ning of the J&B Met took place in the swel­ter­ing Cape Town heat at the Ke­nil­worth Race­course yes­ter­day.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple put on their best clothes – and some their-not-so-best threads – and came out to be seen and put some money on the horses.

There was am­ple seat­ing, food and drinks for all in at­ten­dance, and if you were one of the few who were in­vited into the spon­sor’s VVIP mar­quee, you had ev­ery­thing you needed.

The J&B mar­quee played host to some of the most pop­u­lar faces in the coun­try – Boi­tumelo Thulo, Baset­sana Ku­malo, Khanyi Mbau, Khanya Mkangisa, Stoan Seate, Lalla Hi­rayama, Lunga Sha­bal­ala, Chad Saaiman and Si­nalo Yezwa were all there.

Guests in the VVIP area – which came com­plete with its own spa – were given mas­sages, and had beau­ti­cians at hand to touch up their make-up and hair, so they looked fresh all af­ter­noon.

An ef­fi­cient team ran the fully stocked bar and made sure guests had all the free re­fresh­ments they needed.

Guests feasted on paella, cala­mari, braaied meats, a per­ma­nent coffee bar and a won­der­ful dessert se­lec­tion.

As al­ways, the mar­quees also had en­ter­tain­ment laid on through­out the af­ter­noon and once the main race was run, the DJs took over to get the party started.

Part of the J&B Met’s charm is how chilled it is. The weird and won­der­ful fash­ion makes for an in­ter­est­ing af­ter­noon and a great party well into the evening.
