About the Vodacom Durban July

It sneaks up on you and spreads like wildfire to soon engulf the entire country. You don’t know what it is till you start searching for more and more information and the desire for greater knowledge becomes a passion.

It is the annual surge of “July Frenzy” that makes its appearance in February every year when the Event Theme is announced.

It grows in intensity as the days pass, becoming a national state of craziness that’s hard to resist, peaking on the first Saturday of July in 2021 when South Africa’s best thoroughbreds storm down the home straight to the finish of the spectacular Grade 1 Vodacom Durban July.

The pent up excitement then becomes calm at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse and also for the millions of DStv television viewers who have watched the annual spectacle from the comfort of their homes.

Nine other supporting feature races will add to the thrill of winning, ensuring that the excitement of Vodacom Durban July Day surpasses that of any other event on the African continent.

All races on the day will be covered on DStv channels including Tellytrack on channel 249, the channel dedicated to horseracing.

Betting on the race is serious business for some and for others it is just an annual flutter.

Whatever category you fit into, the tote and bookmakers will be under tremendous pressure dealing with the estimated betting splurge of over R200 million!

There is nothing worse than watching your fancy pass the winning post first in the country’s greatest race without your money on its back, so to avoid this situation you are urged to get your bets on from Monday 28 June when tabGOLD tote, online and telephone tote betting opens.
