Ippodromo San Siro, the 35th day of the racing season
Milan, October 5, 2023 – The first midweek racing event of October at the Snai San Siro Racecourse in Milan featured six thrilling horse racing competitions, marking the 35th day of the racing season. The highlight of the day was the Dormelletto Prize, a challenging race over an extended mile with Campobello in sight. The spotlight was on the highly anticipated Calm Reef, who secured another convincing victory, following his successful debut. This time, Churchill from the Botti stable took the lead, demonstrating an impressive long sprint that fended off Enjoy The Summer’s fierce challenge. The performance appeared promising, leaving a strong impression.
Equally captivating was the Handicap Limited event, which concluded with a well-deserved victory for Zittella. Finally, she updated her tally of victories after a series of high-level placements. A potential repeat victory in the Madonnina Prize would certainly be a great achievement.
The day began with three maiden races for young horses, including one for pure sprinters, the Mimetico Prize. The favored Ninco Nanco lived up to expectations, securing an impressive win, confirming his promising debut and leaving a hopeful impression for future races.
RACE 6 – COTTOMOUTH PRIZE
In the race for males over 1,500 meters and the Vigata Prize, King Of The Waves led for a long stretch, closely followed by Winning Secret. King Of The Waves displayed determination to fend off Winning Secret’s challenge. Both horses had garnered attention during their spring debut, but while today’s runner-up met expectations, the winner showed significant improvement. His victory in a competitive field raises high hopes, and Winning Secret, who impressed, is unlikely to remain a maiden for long.
RACE 3 – VIGATA PRIZE
The Exibihit One Prize for females delivered a surprise as Fiamma Dei Grif triumphed at 20/1 odds. She didn’t steal the victory but rather dominated the race, resiliently rebuffing Nunu’s determined effort. Fiamma Dei Grif’s trainer, Sebastiano Guerrieri, had expressed confidence in her abilities even before the race, and her win surprised everyone but him, suggesting she possesses intriguing potential.
RACE 4 – EXIBIHIT ONE PRIZE
Finally, in the Lucio and Ludovica Albertoni Prize, a traditional handicap race over a mile on the big track, Hot Sunset clinched victory with a convincing performance. Hot Sunset bounced back with great interest after a disappointing third-place finish, particularly noteworthy considering that this distance suits her well.
RACE 2 – LUCIO AND LUDOVICA ALBERTONI PRIZE
The next racing event at the Snai San Siro Racecourse in Milan is scheduled for Sunday, October 8, featuring the Verziere Prize – Memorial Aldo Cirla and the Elena and Sergio Cumani Prize.
