Power King is ‘captain’ of the Durban July

With stakes at R3,5 million for this year’s race, Power King was announced the winner after a lengthy delay.

DURBAN - For a second consecutive year, there has been a race review at the Durban July to determine the winner.

Power King is alleged to have brushed against Punta Arenas as the horses came through the winning post.

Power King was announced the winner after a lengthy delay.

It was an agonizing wait for punters here at the Vodacom Durban July, but eventually Power King was given the victory after a delay of over half and hour.

As the horses made their way through the final straight the massive crowd there roared, with fists raised in the air they tried to cheer their horses to victory.

The stakes were high, R3,5 million to be exact, and the race review only added to the spectacle.

Over 50,000 people made their way to the Greyville racecourse today and win or lose everyone seems to be smiling.

Earlier, many others say they weren't even there for the racing but fashion, food and socialising is what mattered to them.
