I couldn't have been more wrong about Pearl Valley. I had dismissed an earlier invitation out of hand when I was still too fat and unfit to walk around a golf estate and the thought of visiting one held no appeal whatsoever.

Made To Fly Met
Made To Fly Met

This is the 36th year that J&B has sponsored The Met. The theme "Made To Fly" was actually based around the idea of "Made To Succeed", which J&B felt they have done over and over again. The race used to be run on Green Point common; British soldiers attached to the Cape Garrison would race and the ladies in all their attire would watch and cheer them on. Although not British, the jockeys of the 2013 Met are certainly soldiers and many ladies were in their very best - and the cheering was mind-blowing.
