It was an evening of glitz and glamour at the recent Emperor’s Palace Ready to Run cocktail party. The function was held in the setting of the beautiful pool at Emperor’s Palace, where a sumptuous array of snacks and drinks were served. The evening was attended by the who’s who of racing, together with members of the Springbok rugby team.
