On Saturday it was Africa's biggest horse racing event - The Durban July. Last year I was lucky enough to go, but this year I couldn't, so I watched it at home.
Last year the winner was Bold Silvano, he's number six and the jockey has the blue and yellow silks with the blue cap. The horse I wanted to win, Irish Flame, came second :) You will see our president towards the end
This year the winner was Igugu, which is zulu for Jewel. She's number 9, and the jockey is in the exact same silks as above... Igugu is fast becoming our next champion, and I wanted her to win from the start
Both of them were trained by Mike de Kock, who has trained almost every winner the Durban July has ever had... He is an amazing man :)
Well, there you go, that's our biggest race on the continent, hope you enjoyed. :) It is truly an honor to be able to witness this amazing day :)
