JEFF Lloyd will be a guest of honour and member of a panel discussion about the 2018 Vodacom Durban July at the Sibaya Casino on Wednesday, 4 July at 6pm.

The topic of conversation will revolve around Jeff but will include a detailed analysis of this year’s Vodacom Durban July.

Event organiser Andrew Bon commented:  “These opportunities are rare, so I wish to embrace these fortuitous circumstances. Two years ago we held a panel discussion at Sibaya with Mike de Kock, Mike Azzie and Geoff Woodruff.

“The purpose was to discuss the history of their respective careers, with particular regard to the Triple Crown and its impact on the VDJ. Louis The King was sold on that sale, so it had significant relevance.

“This year we have a unique opportunity to pay tribute to The Guv. Who knows when, if ever, he will be back in SA again?

“Obviously we all know that the VDJ is the one achievement in South African Horse Racing, which has eluded him. He has been third on nine occasions, is a record in itself. With Graeme Hawkins as MC and panel host, Garth Puller as guest and once fellow rider, Deez Dyanand, Agent and respected presenter and Jeff as the Guest of honour the scene is set for a thoroughly entertaining evening.

“I have asked Bloodstock SA for their support both as hosts of the Sale and by providing their vendors and buyers with some Good Solid Heroic entertainment. We are thinking 17:30 for 18:00 but are indeed flexible. We want people to come straight over from viewing yearlings to drinks and dinner.
