Italian Gallop Championship
Every day of the Italian Gallop Championship races is preceded by a breakfast, or gala dinner if the race is at night, to which the owners of registered horses are invited and, of course, breeders, coaches, professionals, journalists, entrepreneurs… accompanied by their ladies.
Subsequently the guests reach the areas with access reserved for them, where they spend the whole afternoon or evening, in a succession of unique and elegant moments.
The Weight Building
It is a definition that recalls the great traditions of Italian horse racing because the jockeys, equipped with their saddles, undergo weight checks before each race.
In reality the building is the place where the owners and guests spend the afternoon or the evening of races, being able to quietly watch each race from a privileged point of view.
After the operation of the weight the coaches withdraw the saddle and go to the reserved rod, defined of saddling, where they complete the preparation of the horses, putting the saddle pad and the saddle.
Saddled horses, called by the speaker, are led to the presentation rod, around which is the audience that can check the horses ‘shape to choose the horse to bet on and the craftsmen (trainers’ assistants) accompany the horses for a few turns in the rod under the eyes of the public.
Jockeys in the Saddle
At this point, following the call by the Clerk of the Course. the jockeys mount in the saddle and head towards the starting cages.
The jockeys reach the starting cages where hippodrome operators help to arrange each horse in its own cage, according to a precise fence order.
As soon as all the horses are in the cages, the Race Director starts the race.
The horses, released with a great shot from the starting cages, run along the track and, in less than two minutes, cross the finish line.
In this short time all the attention is paid to running, and the cheer and passion grows as the finish line approaches.
Arrival and Awards
The winning horses are addressed to the prize-giving area, where the owner, the jockey, the breeder and the coach of the winning horse are rewarded in front of photographers, televisions, journalists and the public.
