Greyville Racecourse will be transformed into a floral fiesta on Saturday as the Durban July looks set to attract another sell-out crowd in what everybody hopes will be perfectly clear and warm midwinter Durban day.

Greyville will be packed with fashionistas, socialites and punters from all walks of life, all dressed for the occasion and providing their own unique interpretation of the theme “It’s a Blooming Great Day”.

Tickets for the day have been on sale for a while – grandstand tickets at R170 each and parking tickets at R50 per vehicle on the Royal Durban Golf Course. Whilst entrance tickets will also be on sale on the day, parking tickets will not and must be pre-purchased.

So have a day out and experience the luxury, the sights, the smells (don’t step on any presents left behind by our four legged friends) and perhaps place a bet or two. If you like me, a complete virgin to betting and horse racing, pick a name below that tickles your fancy and go with it, who knows you may experience a lucky streak and win a bit of money.

My money is on ‘Goat’ I mean who calls their prized race horse Goat anyway?
