Description

White Turf is annual gathering of noble thoroughbreds from all over Europe that fly across the flattest racecourse in the world, carrying international jockeys sporting the colours of prestigious racing stables. Set against the magnificent alpine backdrop of the Upper Engadine, the high society of horse racing come together and enjoy St. Moritz’s proverbial ‘champagne climate’. Staged since 1907, White Turf stands for sport of the highest calibre. The winner of St. Moritz is announced as a European championship on snow and is rewarded with the highest prize money in Switzerland. White Turf also boasts a world-exclusive event with the Credit Suisse Grand Prix skijoring race, and also captivates spectators with its first-class BMW trotting races. Besides the horse races, White Turf offers a highly attractive fringe programme, including two interesting musical performances, three highly diverse art exhibitions, and plenty of fun and enjoyment for children and adults alike, not to mention a rich selection of culinary highlights. Welcome to St. Moritz – and welcome to White Turf.
