This year, South Africa’s greatest horse racing event has partnered with Hollywoodbets to deliver a historic experience. Make a beeline to the Greyville Race course on the 2nd of July to experience a fashion, sports and entertainment extravaganza.

An unforgettable experience…

History will be made as Hollywoodbets partners with the iconic horse racing event for the first time. This year, the theme is ‘Show Me The Honey’ so we already know that it’ll be a sweet affair so kick the winter blues and get buzzing!!!

The land of milk and honey

Eye-catching, fabulous and floral inspired looks sweet enough for a bee. Fashionistas are in for a treat with all the colours and designs under the sun. Whether you choose to float like a butterfly or sting like a bee, the possibilities are endless and abundance is the order of the day, so get creative!

The sweet taste of success…

In true Hollywood Bets fashion, young creatives will have the opportunity to launch their careers with the Young Designer Award presented by Durban Fashion Fair. The top 25 students from fashion design colleges and technikons across KwaZulu-Natal were recently shortlisted from an initial pool of 110 entrants, and now stand in line to access the opportunity of a lifetime if they make the next round into the top 10 students who will showcase their designs at the Hollywoodbets Durban July on the 2nd of July. This year’s top three winners can rest assured they have all the ingredients necessary to catapult themselves into South Africa’s fashion industry and possibly onto the international runways too.

Get your hands on the honeypot

The stakes are even higher this year with Hollywoodbets taking over as the headline sponsor. The race will be getting a prize increase of 250% with a stakes injection of R13 million for the feature and minor races taking place between the 1st of March and the 31st of August. What could be sweeter?
