Plenty of excitement at Charity Mile barrier draw

With just over a week to go to one of Gauteng’s most important horseracing events of the year, the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile, the all-important barrier draw for the race was held at Emperors Palace on Wednesday morning, October 23.

Helping with the ballot was SuperSport anchorman Neil Andrews, who is one of the 16 well-known personalities who were paired at the draw with 16 top-class horse races for the benefit of 16 charities for the race which will be run at Turffontein Racecourse on Saturday, November 2.

With this year’s Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile taking place on the same day as the Rugby World Cup final (Saturday, November 2), the barrier draw for the popular Gauteng horse racing event had a distinct rugby-feel to it.
