THE final field announcement for the 2020 Vodacom Durban July and the all-important draw for barrier positions will be televised live on Tellytrack (Channel 239) from 13:05 on Tuesday 14th July. The final field will include 18 horses plus two reserve runners.
The draw for barrier positions will be hosted at Hollywoodbets Greyville and undertaken by Chris Lazarus, Vodacom’s KZN Managing Executive. Given Gold Circle’s practice of aligning the barrier draw with the saddle cloth number, the draw will embrace the new format with Chris Lazarus drawing horse names to match the draw / saddle cloth number.
Proceedings will take place under the watchful eye of KZN’s Chief Stipendiary Steward Deanthan Moodley.
