This Sunday, November 7, a new appointment with horse racing in the Madrid racecourse. The venue will open its doors at 11 in the morning to offer locals the opportunity to enjoy an exciting sports show, accompanied by a leisure offer for everyone where they can have an aperitif or eat in its different gastronomic spaces. And the Ponyturf Club is open to all children who want to have fun on the inflatables and try the experience of being a rider on the back of a pony.
The day will consist of a program with five races for two and three-year-olds, three of them intended for thoroughbreds born and raised in Spain. The most prominent test is the National Grand Prize (1881-2021) reserved for the generation of three-year-old colts and fillies, with a distance of 2,200 meters. The expectation monopolizes her Maracay, a filly raised by her owner Alfonso Nunez on the Yeguada Toledo with four consecutive victories at the Madrid racetrack, a second place and a third in Listed races in his journey through French lands this summer, he seeks to make history in our country with this triumph after winning the Poule and the Oaks and emulate the feat of Eureka, owned by the Cuadra Dos Estrellas, as the only mare to win the Valderas-Poule de Potrancas Grand Prix, the Beamonte Grand Prix (Spanish Oaks) and the National Grand Prix in 1966. If she achieved this milestone, she could be named mare of the year and she would be the only one to do so with the classic Beamonte distance of 2,400 meters, as Eureka did it in 2,100 meters. meters.
The National Grand Prize It is considered the oldest of those that are run in Spain. Are fulfilled 140 years, since its first edition was held on May 12, 1881, three years after the inauguration of the La Castellana Racecourse. However, this continuity is recognized by the special and maintained conditions of the race, rather than because from its inception its name was the National Grand Prize, since it was originally born calling itself Madrid Grand Prix and in its conditions it was reserved for national horses, making it clear that the most important race on the calendar should reward, above all things, the national breeding. The economic endowment of the prize when it was created in 1881 and was the respectable sum of 40,000 reals of fleece.
They also highlight the Breeders Cup – Manuel Sánchez-Arjona for the national two-year-old foals in which six horses will participate, and the Breeders’ Cup–Javier Navarro Reverter for fillies with seven applicants, both events with a 1,500 m distance. and with two sons of the champion Noozhoh Canary Islands as favorites, Rascal and Casilda respectively. All of them will compete to proclaim themselves as the best Spanish product of this generation.
The morning will begin at 11:30 am, with the Breeders Cup Award-Manuel Delgado Sánchez-Arjona (foals), for 2-year-old foals born and raised in Spain, distance of 1,500 meters. Six participants at the starting pole. Rascal He is the clear favorite to win, he has three victories and two seconds in his five outings on the track. It is the one that has shown the most, it will be very difficult to beat. As main rivals I see Calchas, Triton and Nepomuk.
The second race will be the Breeders Cup Award-Javier Navarro Reverter (fillies), for 2-year-old fillies born and raised in Spain, distance of 1,500 meters. Seven candidates for victory. Casilda It comes from beating winning males and with a lot of style, here it stands out clearly, you have to beat it. Grinding, winner in her last two outings, will be her main rival. Aracena and Usi de U, they could also be close.
In third place the Fabio de Turnes Award, for colts and fillies of two years that have not won three races or a Prize of 12,000 euros, over the distance of 1,800 meters. Eight hopefuls for victory. Highland Market he had a promising debut and here he can only progress, I really like his chance of victory. Tayrona he improved his debut a lot and he is also expected to improve, he will be very close. Qualyse Barelire It is the one that has shown the most, although the distance may be at its limit, it will give a lot of war.
The fourth race will be the Casaca Award, handicap for three-year-old colts and fillies that have not won a Prize of 15,000 euros, over the distance of 2,100 meters. Ten copies at the order of the starter. I really liked it Ussía, in his victorious start this year, further improvement is expected. It has everything to repeat. Your main rivals could be Hades y Monty Bareliere, although I would not forget Isabela y Aarash, which here could be very close. Looking for a surprise I’m going to stay with Natural Talent, In sand he has shown that he has great value, which he does not confirm later on grass, but he loves mud and conditions can arise, I would not forget him.
In fifth place, closing the day, the National Grand Prize (sponsored by Santander Private Banking), the best three-year-old colts and fillies born and raised in Spain, will fight for the victory in the 2,200 meters of route. Eight hopefuls for victory. Maracay It has shown that it is very good and has a great history, a priori it should be one of the fixed ones in the morning, if its ‘battles’ in France do not take its toll and make history in our turf, winning Poule, Oaks and National. Asturias He won high school convincingly, he’s very fit and won’t make it easy for the favorite. Glass of Cava He could not handle the distance at the Oaks, although he has not run for a long time, he can see it on and he has the quality to fight it. Will be there. Uranus he had a very good comeback after 7 months without running, he is supposed to be a great improvement, he will also give war.
