Premio Lydia Tesio Receives Purse Hike


Laganore | Racing Post

The G1 Premio Lydia Tesio, slated to be held over 2000m at Capannelle in Rome on Sunday, Nov. 4, received a purse increase from €297,000 to €407,000 from the Italian Ministry of Agriculture. The lone Group 1 race remaining in the Italian Pattern, the purse increase was made in an effort to attract the top fillies and mares in Italy and abroad and preserve its top-level status in 2019 and beyond. The 2017 edition was won by Newtown Anner Stud's Laganore (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) for trainer Tony Martin.
