ON the occasion of her birthday on Sunday, 16 January – and with Mike and Mathew away in Dubai – Diane de Kock (right), was treated to a lunch-and-wine hosted by Stef du Preez (front), and in the company of good friends Mariette Coleman (left), Liz Ladeira and Karola Lindemann, who sent this photo to mikedekockracing.com.
Karola didn’t say, but the pic must have been snapped by Kirsten de Kock, the sixth guest at Diane’s party.
Gentleman really do prefer blondes, and three lucky chaps had the pleasure of presiding over the safety and well-being of Six of the Best at this little get-together!
Connoisseur-of-the-grape, Gerald Coleman, made sure that all the glasses were timeously filled. Ferdi Ladeira compared various form lines and recorded race times to work out how far Rudra would win the J&B Met, and Peter Dunias shared his knowledge of high fashion with the girls.
Happy Birthday Di and many happy returns!
