It's Durban July time!

The 2020 edition of the prestigious horse racing event was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic and will now take place on Saturday, 25 July, at Greyville in Durban.

In normal circumstances, the Durban July would be a day filled with glitz, glamour, and high-end fashion. Sadly, no spectators will be allowed to attend this year's event due to the lockdown in South Africa.

The races will go ahead, however, and we are set to see a full schedule on the day.
