About The Durban July

Horses racing at the Durban July

South Africa’s premier horse racing event is held annually on the first Saturday of July at Greyville Racecourse in Durban. The race is on turf and it is open to thoroughbred horses from 3 years old and up.

Although you can watch this great sporting event on television there is no substitute for being right there to experience the sights and the sounds, that comes with live action and entertainment.

On the first Saturday of every July nearly 60 000 people head towards Greyville to experience the “July Fever”. And it’s not all about the horses! It is a fashion and entertainment extravaganza where everybody wants to be seen.
