The Durban July Gallops

Published on Jun 27, 2015

If you missed the gallops and all the dialogue about the Vodacom Durban July gallops. Check this out. Without all the opinion. It’s shorter, for one.

Durban July Trivia

The distance of the Durban July Handicap has changed nearly every decade, with the length of the course increasing every time.

In 1906 the distance changed from 1 mile (approximately 1609 meters) to 1 mile and 68 yards (approximately 1 671 meters). It changed again in 1913 to 1 mile 1 furlong (approximately 1 872 meters), and in 1915 to 1/4 miles (approximately 2 000 meters). The distance remained this way until 1940... but not for long.

In 1941, again, the distance was changed to 1 mile 2 1/4 furlongs (approximately 2 100 meters). In 1970, for the final time, the Durban July Handicap was changed to its current distance of 2 200 meters.

Durban July Update (26 June)

Sangoma's bone shows that WYLIE HALL will win the 2015 Vodacom Durban July. WYLIE HALL came second to LEGISLATE who won last year's July.

WYLIE HALL's recent form does indicate that as a possibility. What do you think?


Durban July Updates (25 June)

Justin Snaith was breathing a lot easier after top weight FUTURA drew 6 in the draw for next Saturday's R3,5 Gr 1 Vodacom Durban July. The 18-horse field with two reserve runners was announced and the draw made at a function at Greyville...

Durban July Update (19 June)

One of the Vodacom Durban July favourites, LEGAL EAGLE, will likely be the best weighted horse on paper that the Vodacom Durban July has seen since merit ratings were introduced to South African in 1999.


The road to The Vodacom Durban July

Durban July Update (16 June)

The Vodacom Durban July weights were announced on Tuesday 9th and the Gr 3 Cup Trial winner PUNTA ARENAS has been the most unfavourably affected of the big race contestants after the handicapping changes made in the wake of Saturday's Gr 1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge race meeting.

PUNTA ARENAS was raised three points for the win and is now merit rated 109, meaning he will be set to carry 54,5kg in the July. FUTURA, who finished fourth in the Gold Challenge, remains the highest rated horse in the race (120) and is set to carry top weight of 60kg.


Good news for Gauteng racing

Jockey Andrew Fortune will be riding in Gauteng for a few months.

Build up to the July

It is seven years since a Gr 1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge winner went on to win the Vodacom Durban July, but the double could possibly be done again this year as the ruling favourite for the country's biggest horseracing event.

FUTURA, will be lining up in the Rising Sun Gold Challenge at Greyville on Saturday.

However, this will be the Justin Snaith-trained superstar's return bout with his new stablemate LEGISLATE, having stolen the latter's limelight when winning the Gr 1 L'Ormarin's Queen’s Plate in early January.

Snaith said about Saturday’s big clash, "FUTURA has come on lengths from his last run and has put up a very good gallop on the Summerveld grass since. He couldn’t be better and I’m very happy. He's a very nice natured horse and is a pleasure to train. LEGISLATE also galloped on the grass at Summerveld on Monday. He was blowing a little bit and that's what we wanted as we hope he comes on from that. It's hard to be sure whether he will be back to his best, but he's doing well enough and he likes to run fresh. They are both well and I wouldn't want to change anything."
