Courtesy of South Africa’s hottest celebrities and influencers, Durban July has become an annual event to genuinely look forward to. Officially titled The Durban July Handicap, this event is a South African Thoroughbred horse race held annually on the first Saturday of July since 1897, at Greyville Racecourse in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

The butterflies start for many,When the horses step out on parade,The adrenaline builds to a climax, At the winning post heroes are mad, Jockeys dazzle in their rainbow silks, As they gallop past the crowd to the start.
Muscles tight with expectation,Each chest thumping to the beat of a heart, There’s a serious side to this racing game,Connections well-groomed for the show ,some dressed to match their racing colours,Others just content to be front row.

Nimbly flitting from flower to flower,Social Butterflies are Queens of this Day Spreading what’s gathered gives them power,Collecting nectar! Never tiring! “Hooray!” Altogether it’s a colourful show,From casual racegoers to those in the know.
Paint your own picture, be who you’ll be,t’s socializing in the extreme, sweet pea!

This year, it will be held at the Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse, Berea, South Africa on Saturday 4th July, and the 2020 theme couldn’t be any cuter: butterflies! Think bright colours, big patterns and even a little bit of shimmer.
