Princess Charlene of Monaco excites people at Turffontein

Princess Charlene of Monaco excites people at Turffontein

By Staff Writer - April 16, 2019

Princess Charlene of Monaco touched down at Turffontein Racecourse on April 13.

The Zimbabwean-born princess, hailing from Benoni, hosted a Royal Race Day in Turffontein which saw Grade One HSH Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes for fillies and mares over 1 600m, with R1-million up for grabs.

There were also two Maiden Plates, of which one was for fillies and mares only, with total stakes of R250 000, all funded by her. Jockey Gareth Wright, who rode Camphoratus, won the R1-m stakes.

The princess wasn’t only focused on the race, but also gave R50 000 to Gugulethu Primary School and R50 000 to Lesabe Primary School, beneficiaries from Daveyton and Benoni respectively.

Gugulethu headmaster Thobile Mavundla was excited to see her school being named as a beneficiary.
