Roma Capannelle. Le corse di venerdì 12 febbraio 2021
Venerdì 12 febbraio – Galoppo

Capannelle inizia già a guardare alla grande stagione imminente e il programma di questo venerdì 12 ci fa quasi respirare aria di primavera. Sempre naturalmente sulla pista “all weather” con sei corse molto interessanti, tra cui una condizionata di spessore per le sole femmine di tre anni sulla distanza dei 1400.

Una prima occasione per le cavalle che provano così a mettere nel mirino il prestigioso Regina Elena. Il campo delle protagoniste è interessante con AlderaminAltalunaBlonde QueenLory di ToniMeine StuteNot To DayPuerto Princesa. Per le migliori, appuntamento al tradizionale Premio Ceprano in marzo, sulla pista in erba. 
Il programma di giornata prevede anche un’affollata maiden dedicata ai tre anni sulla distanza di 2300 metri. Tra i favoriti BarackBarbaricinaMike PancakeSaburo of Dubai.
Qualitativo anche l’handicap limitato per i tre anni con cinque cavalli al via (Tigre BiancaSignor EsseInstaforcePerseaStramonium) e poi spettacolo con tanti anziani sul miglio (sarà seconda tris), tra cui Feeling GoodNonna TirinaNightcrawlerKaedZona d’Ombra e Vivimi
Sei corse (inizio alle 13.25), tra cui una condizionata, una maiden, tre handicap, distanze da 1400 a 2300, in media nove cavalli per corsa. Prossimi appuntamento sempre di venerdì fino al cinque marzo, giorno di inizio delle riunioni primaverili in erba.


Le corse a Capannelle si svolgeranno a porte chiuse ma i servizi di bar e ristorazione all’interno dell’Ippodromo saranno aperti nel rispetto delle norme di contenimento del coronavirus.

Si ricorda che come da nuovo Dpcm 24 ottobre, contenente le nuove misure per fronteggiare l’emergenza epidemiologica da Covid-19, le sale scommesse all’interno dell’Ippodromo resteranno chiuse.

Options Open For Soft Whisper


Soft Whisper | Dubai Racing Club

Trainer Saeed bin Suroor is keeping options open for his Listed UAE 1000 Guineas winner Soft Whisper (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), with next week’s G3 UAE Oaks and Saudi Derby both still on the table.

“She is entered in the UAE Oaks and also the Saudi Derby,” bin Suroor said. “She’s in both races and we will keep options open. She is a good filly and unbeaten in Dubai. She won the Guineas Trial and also the Guineas under Frankie [Dettori]. She won both races really well and has come back good from her last race. We’re looking forward to the future with her.”

Soft Whisper has not been worse than second in six starts and has won her last four straight. She took the UAE 1000 Guineas Trial on Jan. 7 by 2 1/2 lengths before winning the main event itself by seven three weeks later.


USADA CEO Travis Tygart, Explains How His Anti-Doping. Team Will Clean Up Racing 
        Late last year, the United States Congress, within an omnibus spending bill that included aid for coronavirus relief, passed the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act. It is a plainly groundbreaking piece of legislation for racing, but its most notable provision is that drug enforcement will soon fall under the purview of USADA and CEO Travis Tygart, arguably the most respected anti-doping authorities in the world.
   So what, exactly, does that mean for the future of racing and how it will operate in the new HISA era? In his first public interview since USADA was tasked with an entirely new sport to regulate, Tygart sat down with the crew of the TDN Writers’ Room podcast presented by Keeneland Wednesday. Calling in via Zoom as the Green Group Guest of the Week, Tygart participated in an expansive, candid, illuminating discussion on the transformation we should expect to see in the coming years as he and his crew take the regulatory reins.
   ”It’s obviously a huge responsibility, but one that we’re fully ready to embrace to learn the nuts and bolts of the industry that we don’t know,” Tygart, who grew up near Ocala, said about USADA entering a new domain in racing. “We’re honored to be part of it. We feel like it’s a tremendous privilege. We recognize that we’re going to have to work every day and every night to prove that we’re the right organization for this. Cheating, honesty, ethics, and the rule of sport are the same across all sports. So while some might want to say there’s a difference between equine anti-doping and medication control programs and what happens in humans, the mentality of cheating and trying to get an advantage against the rules, is the same. So we’re really looking forward to putting in a gold standard program that people in the industry can have a lot of satisfaction and pride in, that it’s being done at the highest levels, with an equal opportunity to win playing by the rules, which is all any athlete–whether you’re a trainer, owner of a horse or a human athlete–can ask for.”  

   Elsewhere on Wednesday’s podcast, the writers previewed a strong holiday weekend racing lineup that includes the return of 2-year-old champion Essential Quality (Tapit). Then, in the West Point Thoroughbreds news segment, they analyzed the continuing positive handle trends and the passage of a historical horse racing reinstatement bill in the Kentucky Senate.
