Filly Sparkling Water took the top honours at this year’s Hollywoodbets Durban July horse race on Saturday.

Filly was ridden by S’manga Khumalo for trainer Mike de Kock and owner Mary Slack.

But it was singer and actress Nandi Madida who stole the shine with her bold and edgy red carpet gown, which made a clear ‘show me the honey’ statement as the theme suggested.

Dressed by famous South African fashion designer Ryan Keys, Madida was the Hollywoodbets marquee’s main celebrity.

“Thank you @Hollywoodbets for choosing me as the Queen Bee for your Marquee,” Madidba tweeted, showing off her stunning honey gold coloured gown.

“The aim was to be comfortable, chic & dressed to the theme,” she added talking about the gown.

Keys – who is the founder of IAmAlreadyFamous, Snatched and Keys Fashion clothing brands also dressed the presenter-turned-award-winning-rapper Boity Thulo.

“I am going for luxury and elegance,” Boity told TshisaLive before the event.

Meanwhile, the famous race took place at Durban’s Greyville Racecourse with a crowd for the first time, after two years of hosting the event virtually because of the Covid-19 regulations.
