The Pink Punter, started 10 years ago, is Johannesburg’s way of celebrating the Durban July with all the glitz and the glam but without the hassle of driving down to Durban. The Durban July horse races are all televised and the only prerequisite for this swanky affair is to be wearing pink. This years theme was: Pink, Posh and Royal.
WinkBall citizen video reporters Candice and Angus attended the Pink Punter event at the Wanderers Club on 2 July 2011 and asked attendees at the event: what inspired their pink outfit, have they been before, are they betting on any horses and what their choice was based on and if they had a horse what would they name it (as we are all aware there are some pretty interesting horse names out there)? What are your pink Punter thoughts?
