1st racing day of the 2015 White Turf St. Moritz

10,000 spectators followed the events of the first day of racing at White Turf 2015. Cap Sizun   was the winner in the most important flat race, the first hurdles race for 21 years was won by Vicomte Alco. It was Dreamspeed and Franco Moro that prevailed in the Skikjöring, whilst in the Arabian race Alibaba del Sol managed to repeat last year’s win. A total of 62,831 Swiss francs was placed in bets.

We now know the favourite for the ‘Gübelin 76th Grand Prix of St. Moritz’ on the third Sunday of racing: Cap Sizun from the Zürich-Dielsdorf stables of Monika Müller won in the ‘GP Guardaval Immobilien  –  Zuoz and Passugger’ in impressive manner and in doing so was victorious in the most significant race in preparation for the final Grand Prix. ‘At the beginning I thought it could only go wrong today. Cap Sizun was galloping badly but then he kept on improving on the backstretch. It wasn’t until we hit the straight that I realised we could  win’,  said  winning  jockey  André  Best,  who  will  be  riding  the  gelding  owned  by  Rita  and  Peter Hartmann  again  in  a  fortnight.  Three  and  a  half  lengths  behind  in  second  place  was  Fabrino  (Olivier Plaçais) ahead of Marunas (Dennis Schiergen) in third.

The day’s racing couldn’t have started in a more exciting fashion than in the Prix Arosa. The first hurdles race following a 21 year break was won by Vicomte Alco (Anthony Lecord ier) after a sensational race. After initially being far ahead of the field Totem Flow (Milan Zatloukal) had to accept defeat after being pipped on the finishing line by almost half a length by Vicomte Alco by finishing with a tremendous final spurt of spe ed.‘Vicomte Alco had  a moment of weakness on the backstretch, but then just kept on  improving in speed. Even  the  jockey  himself  couldn’t  have  believed  that  he  could  still  win  this  hurdles  race’,  commented  an ecstatic  trainer  Andreas  Schärer.  Vicomte  Alco  and  Totem  Flow  are  now  favourites  in  the  odds  for  the‘World Snow Hurdle Championship’ next Sunday.

In the Arabian race, the ‘H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan Listed Cup’, with prize money of 42,000 Swiss francs, it was last year’s winner Alibaba del Sol from the Dutch stables of Karin Van den Bos who was again victorious. Daniele Porcu was in the saddle of the winner, who showed his stable-mate Athlète del Sol (André Best) the way to the winners enclosure, thus ensuring the best possible result for the stable.

The  cards  were  completely  reshuffled  in  the  Skikjöring.  In  the  ‘CREDIT  SUISSE  –  Celerina  Grand  Prix’ Dreamspeed -  from the German stables of Christian Von der Recke and driven by Franco Moro  -  took the lead  very  early  and  didn’t  let  any  of  his  opponents  come  anywhere  near  him. Franco  Moro  commented, ‘During the race I always had a good feeling. Nobody beat us this time.’ The gelding triumphed convincingly with three and a half lengths from Mombassa (Adrian von Gunten), who at times looked highly dangerous. Third  place  went  to  Acteur  de  l’Ecu  (Erich  Bottlang),  who  managed  to  pass  the  reigning  trophy  winner Bergonzi (Fadri Casty) at the very end of the race.

Terry Gahn, last year’s successful trot specialist on snow, had to concede defeat this time in the ‘GP Swiss International Air Lines’ to ten year-old Belgino in who Claudia Koller-Wehrly as trainer/driver had managed to find herself a winner. In the second trot race, the ‘GP Blasto / Fraumünster Insurance Experts’, it was Maître de la Piste, the experienced snow horse guided home by Laurence Kindler, who managed to take the victory. The gelding is trained by Jean-François Johner.

The  ‘GP  Handels  &  Gewerbeverein  St.  Moritz’  -  a  flat  race  on  the  sprint  course  -  was  dominated  in completely  superior  fashion  by  Burning  Blaze  (Jamie  Spencer)  a  British  horse  from  the  stable  of  Olly Stevens. It was trainer Miroslav Weiss jumping for joy after the ‘GP Data Quest’ – a race for mile specialists - as  his  charge  Strade  Kirk  with  Robert  Havlin  in  the  saddle  proved  to  have  the  greatest  competitive qualities. A head’s advantage was enough to keep the English guest Berrahri (Steve Drowne) in check.

10,000 spectators followed the events of the first day of racing at White Turf 2015.
