A Big Weekend Ahead!
Having tasted Group 1 success in Milan with Ventura Storm and experienced being treated exceptionally well at the racecourse, we are always keen to return to Italy. Syndicate manager Tim is fully aware of the race programme around Europe and targets specific horses to these valuable races. We also know that our owners appreciate the chance for a weekend away and this time it's Rome! Italy's biggest race day takes place on Sunday at Rome's Capannelle racecourse and we have two runners:
The Marco Botti trained DARK ACCLAIM will run in Italy's richest race: The €704k Group 2 Derby Italiano over 1m 3f (2,200m) and is drawn 3 of 12.
The Kevin Ryan trained NAADIRR runs in the €71k Group 3 Premio Tudini over 6f (1,200m) and is drawn 6 of 14.
We are the only British trained runners taking part in these races and are very excited that Frankie Dettori will ride them both.
See all the details here: http://www.capannelleippodromo.it/eventi/197/topnews (you may need to his Google translate!) There's a PDF of all the runners on the day included.
Lots of owners are heading over, along with Tim and Tom to be hosts for the weekend and we can't wait-it's going to be fun, win lose or draw. Buona fortuna!
