HorseRacing : Marinaresco wins the #DurbanJuly!

MARINARESCO has won the 2017 Vodacom Durban July! Trained by Candice Bass-Robinson and ridden by Bernard Fayd’Herbe

Last year’s runner-up Marinaresco went one better in this year’s Durban July to take home the spoils at Greyville Racecourse on Saturday.

Marinaresco became the first horse since Pocket Power in 2008 to win the July with a top weight of 60kg. Ironically, Marinaresco ran in the same silks as Pocket Power in 2008.

The victorious jockey on Marinaresco was Bernard Fayd’herbe, who also won with Pocket Power in 2008, so it was almost like it was meant to be in the R4.25 million race over 2 200m on Saturday.
