"And indeed, a horse who bears himself proudly is a thing of such beauty and astonishment that he attracts the eyes of all beholders. No one will tire of looking at him as long as he will display himself in his splendor." Xenophon
The Montrose Foundation is privileged to have once again been identified as the official beneficiary of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, the Cape’s premier horseracing event. “The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate is more than just an exciting day on the Cape Town social calendar. The Montrose Foundation speaks to the spirit of LQP as it brings people and horses together and is the ideal beneficiary for the event,” says Katherine Gray, the 2015 L’Ormarins Queens Plate coordinator.
