The theme for the 2020 Vodacom Durban July will be:
Event Theme 2020: Butterflies
The butterflies start for many,
When the horses step out on parade.
The adrenaline builds to a climax,
At the winning post, heroes are made.
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,
It’s socialising in the extreme, sweet pea!
