Vodacom Durban July 2011 Showcase

Local fashionistas, punters and party-goers flocked to the Greyville Racecourse over the weekend to celebrate the Vodacom Durban July and The Socialite was there to see it happen, check it out…

Igugu, the pre-race favourite for the day claimed an emphatic victory in the R3 million feature race arriving at the finish line to an ecstatic acclaim from the large crowd basking in the Winter sunshine. Igugu won by a length from Gary Alexander trained Pierre Jourdan closely followed by fancied thoroughbreds English Garden and The Apache with the tote paying six places at this year’s annual Vodacom Durban July. The race was however marred by tragedy as the 2009 winner Big City Life had to be euthanized after breaking down past the post.

Check out our gallery below featuring some of the raceday fashions spotted at Greyville as well as some of the celebs and VIPS celebrating in style at the Vodacom VIP Paddock.

The Socialite will be launching our Vodacom Durban July Video Showcase soon with exclusive interviews and raceday footage of one of Durban’s premier events so keep a look out…
