2013 Durban July Theme Set To Be 'Posh? Oh My Gosh'

The theme for the 2013 Durban July will be ‘Posh? Oh My Gosh’ and racegoers will be preparing for another fantastic renewal of the meeting.

The biggest race day on the South African calendar is rapidly approaching and the excitement ahead of the world famous meeting continues to build. Punters continue to sink their teeth into the latest odds for the race, but of more importance to many will be the chosen theme and fans of the sport are said to be thrilled with the latest choice.

The Durban July theme is always a huge aspect of Durban July day and the fashion in the stands and the enthralling action on the track provide race fans with the perfect summer cocktail.

This year’s ‘Posh? Oh My Gosh’ theme is sure to have those with tickets purring with excitement and officials have released a short poem to help fans understand what it means.

The July Durban is a race that grips a nation on the first Saturday of every July and millions are bet on the outcome.

With a purse of R3.5 million for 2013, it is easily Africa's richest race and public interest grows from an early stage reaching a crescendo on raceday, which this year will be on Saturday 6 July.

On that date, over £50,000 racegoers will pack Greyville Racecourse near Durban for a truly magical day consisting of 12 mega-rich races, and finding the winner of the big race is their prerogative.

The action gets under way at 11h35 and the betting outlets on course and around the country are sure to be busy, with queues likely right up to race time.

Last year's renewal saw 20/1 shot Pomodoro get up in the final strides to pip outsider Smanjemanje (50/1) to give jockey Piere ‘Striker’ Strydom his third victory in the big race and the first for both trainer Sean Tarry and owner and breeder Chris van Niekerk.
