345 days until the next race boldly the banner across the home page of the White Turf racing website White Turf informs visitors.
Over the past three consecutive February Sundays, ultimate snow racing thrilled the crowds at the White Turf racing facilities in St. Moritz Switzerland. At these races, the skier drives the horse, and the horse has no rider.
On Sunday the 6th, nine competed. King George with his skier Broger Jakob placed first with a time of 3:14, followed by Gallardo with skier Luminati Leo, and Viva la Mama with skier Wolf Alfredo Lupo.
On Sunday the 13th, ten raced. The top three were Bergonzi/Moro Franco with a time of 13:11, followed by Luberon/Willy Andy, and then Gallardo/Luminati Leo.
On the third Sunday, the 20th, only six raced. Bergonzi /Moro Franco again came in first with a time of 13:14, King George/Broger Jakob came in second, followed by Gallardo/Luminati Leo third.
