Highveld Racing is pleased to announce the running of the Grade 1 HSH Princess
Charlene Empress Club Stakes over 1600 metres at Turffontein Racecourse on
Saturday 17 April 2021.
The Racing Association takes this opportunity to thank HSH Prince Albert of Monaco,
HSH Princess Charlene and the South African Sport of Kings Monaco Group who have
continued with their support and interest in our industry by way of contributing towards
the stake of this prestigious event. Their generous contribution takes the total stake for
the race to R750 000.
Mike Wittstock, father of HSH Princess Charlene, has been instrumental in assisting with
this promotion and we acknowledge his important role in this day which has, in the past
been a tremendous success. Our aim is to build the HSH Princess Charlene Empress
Club Stakes into one of the premier fillies’ races in South Africa.
The racing industry will abide by the restrictions in place as a result of Covid-19 and
details of planned promotions on the day will be published in due course.
