Description: Hospitality packages to the 2016 Durban July with tickets to the race and accommodation packages

In 1897 The Vodacom Durban July Horse race started life as the Durban Winter Handicap. By 1928 Someone obviously realised that Durban didn't have much of a winter and it was changed to the Durban July Handicap (probably. it sounds a plausible reason?)

Then during the war years, from 1943 to 1945 it reverted back to it's original name ( When warm material was scarce maybe. ) Then in 1946 it went back to calling itself the Durban July Handicap.

In 1963 Rothmans cigarettes took on a sponsorship role for the event ( Gunston cigarettes sponsored another iconic durban event 6 years later, The Gunston 500 Surf event) and it was known as the Rothmans July Handicap until 1989 when it changed to the Rothmans July.

A Year after Gunston lost it's surf event sponsorship, Rothmans lost the Durban July and in 2001 the race was run known as, The Durban July.

In 2002, mobile phone operator Vodacom climbed on board as the major sponsor and the race name was changed to "The Vodacom Durban July" which it is still know as.
