Vodacom Durban July

Thursday, 29 July 2010

This weekend my girlfriends and I will venture to Durban to experience the Vodacom Durban July!
Here is a little info for you...

The Durban July Handicap is a South African Thoroughbred horse race held annually on the first Saturday of July since 1897 at Greyville Racecourse in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Raced on turf, the Durban July Handicap is open to horses of all ages. It is South Africa's premier horse racing event and currently offers a purse of R2.5 million (app. US $360,000).

First held in July 1897 at a distance of 1 mile (approx 1600m), the distance was modified several times until 1970 when it was changed to its current 2200 meters (11 furlongs).

My dress is ready and away they go!


PS. Put your money on the table people!
