SA Celebrities Stylishly Brought ‘The Colour Of Magic’ To Africa’s Biggest Horse Race #DurbanJuly | Photos

The annual ‘Durban July’ handicap race attracts one of the continent’s most fashion-conscious crowds, with the trackside glamour and party atmosphere often threatening to overtake the horse action.

The race which held at Greyville racecourse on the first Saturday of July attracted the finest crème de la crème who all showed up adorned in stylish outfits.

According to Gill Mostert, spokeswoman for Gold Circle, the country’s racing, and betting company,

“Fashion has always been a big part of the Durban July, even in the 1900s. People of all ages, even grannies from old-age homes, set out to dress well and have fun.”

Combining high fashion with sport, nearly 50,000 racegoers marked the 120th anniversary of Africa’s biggest horse race. This year’s theme – The Colour of Magic – saw participants experimenting with multi-coloured outfits and outlandish hats, vying for best-dressed prizes.
