For over a century, the gallop track of Milan has been one of the most prestigious horse racing venues at worldwide level. The tracks are considered among the most selective in the world owing to several different types of tracks (four for level races, one for hurdle races, one for steeple-chase and one of cross country races) and it is possible to hold races at distances ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 meters for level races, and up to 5,000 meters for hurdle/obstacle races.
Some of the greatest thoroughbreds in the history of horse racing have run, fought and won on San Siro racecourse. These legendary horses included Tenerani, Ribot, Sirlad, Tony Bin, Falbrav. There are many prestigious names among jockeys as well, such as Enrico Camici, Frankie Dettori and Mirko Demuro.
