Attended Africa's premier horse rating event on the first Saturday of July. The day went off without a hitch. The many events companies were able to cater for the thirsty and hungry pundits. We shared the day with colleagues and had a great time in the Pegasus Lounge. Our view was great and bar service was excellent.

This is the only prestigious remaining horse race course in Durba after the closure of Clairwood race course, midweek night racing is very spectacular. Greyville Racecourse is popular know world wide for its annual July Handicap event.

An awesome atmosphere. The food was great. Loved the desserts. The entertainment (horse racing) was real fun. We are not gamblers but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was my first time here and will definitely be going back
