The Royal Ascot Goat Races is one of Uganda’s most popular social events. It is is an event of merrymaking and extravagant fashion.
“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,” Ruparelia Group’s Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia, the organisers of the event, said at launch in June at Kabira Country Club.
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.
Away from the goats racing, the event boasts a rich tradition as the most exuberant unofficial fashion showcase in Uganda, and the organisers expect no different this year.
