Uganda’s most popular social event, the Royal Ascot Goat Races returns this October 12th officials from Ruparelia Group announced on Thursday at Kabira Country Club.
This event will be hosted at Speke Resort, Munyonyo, and is sponsored by Tusker Malt Lager. It promises to recreate one of the most eagerly awaited weekends of merry making and extravagant fashion, which were the hallmarks of the Goat Races for years.
“After much deliberation with my sister, we agreed to bring back the goat races last year (after a six-year hiatus) and we are glad that even after having taken a long break, it was an incredibly successful event and the crowds that came enjoyed it,” Ruparelia Group’s Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia, the organisers of the event, said.
“The Goat Races are more than just another event in Uganda, it’s a place where people can come and network and mix along with business, pleasure and have a fun humorous time with good food and drinks all day long,” Rajiv added.
Tusker Malt Lager to sponsor the goat races
“Tusker Malt Lager is proud to once again be a Platinum sponsor of the Goat Races and trust me, it can only get bigger and better. And while you experience all the fun and excitement, you’ll be able to enjoy the unmistakably rich, fresh premium taste of Tusker Malt Lager,” said Cathy Twesigye, Brand Manager, Premium Beers at Uganda Breweries.
The goat races will entail eight races over the course of the day, with each race featuring eight goats. Anyone can sponsor a race, or buy a goat to participate in a race. The proceeds generated from the races will then go to a selected charity.
Races go for anything between Shs6m and Shs10m while goats go for between Shs500,000 and Shs1m. Already, Gold Star, Euroflex and Orient Bank have already acquired goats of their own.
