Italy Gets Monday Go-Ahead


Pro-racing demonstration at the Milan Prefecture | Micol Meiohas

Racing in Italy is set to resume on Monday, with purse levels maintained and with Classic action kicking off with the Italian Guineas', the G3 Premio Regina Elena and the G3 Premio Parioli, on June 14. The G2 Italian Oaks will be staged on July 5, and the G2 Italian Derby on July 12. Pivotal in securing the resumption of racing were jockey agent Stefano Pugliese, who led a demonstration that drew around 70 trainers, jockeys, grooms and owners in front of the Milan Prefecture; and Giuseppe L'Abbate and Teresa Bellanova of the Ministry of Agriculture.
