Durban July in full swing
EWN chats to a Johannesburg resident about the annual Durban July.
JOHANNESBURG - Hundreds of people have started streaming into the Greyville Racecourse for the annual Durban July event.
The Durban July event, in addition to elite horse racing, will see the who's who of South Africa's social ladder get together.
Johannesburg resident Tammy Maree told Eyewitness News how the event is picking up.
"A whole bunch of people are streaming in to the course. We have a few ladies showing off their wonderful outfits. People are already placing their bets. Seven is going to be a lucky number for me today."
Meanwhile, it's believed the first two horse races were cancelled because the track is wet from heavy rains overnight.
