This Sunday, May 15, the Madrid Hippodrome dresses up as a 'chulapo' to celebrate the festival of the Madrid patron with a day in which seven races will be held, among which the San Isidro Prize stands out. The PonyTurf Championship, which will take place throughout the month of May and until Saturday June 4, will celebrate its second day to the delight of the smallest of the house. After finishing the seventh race, the ponies will jump onto the track to cover a distance of 250 meters
San Isidro can be celebrated in the meadow of the racecourse, in the most traditional way, where you can enjoy tapas and eat with the best proposals from our foodtrucks. On the central terrace you can taste portions and tapas from the hand of 'Estribo by Ucalsa'.
The morning will begin at 11:30 am with the first race, the Premio Precoz (Claim), for two-year-old colts and fillies. seven participants. 1,000 meters of travel. Second race for the two-year-old foals in which those who have already run have an advantage. Of them, Astuto stands out, who did not clash in his debut and here he has a good opportunity to pass as winners. There was a lot of talk about Chispa in that race and it has improved a lot, it will be very dangerous. Newcomers Blue Moon Eyes and Wanda could surprise.
In second place will be the King Frog Award, for three-year-old colts and fillies that have not won. Eighteen specimens from the 1,600 meter pole. A very large race with a difficult forecast, especially due to possible 'traffic' problems in the final stretch. Anyway, I really like the Angelines, who are showing form by coming very close in their two starts this year. I see her in the fight. Amil is setting up and her release makes her very dangerous, also the fight. Saslong comes from France with values to give a lot of trouble, she will be at the arrival. Great Belgian scored a lot in his last one and has a lot to say too. Violeta did not confirm her good debut in her second outing, here she has a good opportunity to make up for it.
The third race will be the Marcos Carrasco Prize, a benchmark handicap for horses and mares four years of age and older, over a distance of 1,800 metres. Eighteen contenders for victory in the starting boxes. Another very open and complicated race. Rumbo has been running for two consecutive seconds, it's hanging around it, it's going to be my favorite. Kosciuszko also has two seconds in a row, he will fight her again. Another who is keen to win is Bidul, in the trio in his last two, he will be back at the finish. Ramiriqui and Roble won't be far behind.
In fifth place will be the Aegri Award-'Copa de España Amateurs' reserved for riders and gentlemen, for horses and mares four years and older, over the distance of 2,000 metres. Eleven contenders for victory. I see an Anaya-Arizcorreta duel, or what is the same, Hades and Mauro, on the one hand, and Capercaillie and Adaaylight Dancer, on the other. They are very fit and the distance suits them very well. The race should go through them.
The sixth race will be the Premio Nouvel An, sponsored by Vinos Cría Cuervos, for three-year-old colts and fillies that did not win a prize of 21,000 euros. Seven specimens will start from the 1,800 meter pole. Glorytof was unable to compete for the Velayos Prize last Sunday, when he dismounted his jockey due to a trip. He has a great opportunity to recover. Merano and Tiger Bash will be his main rivals.
The morning will close, in seventh place, with the José Atonio Rodríguez Award, handicap for three-year-old colts and fillies, not winners of a prize of 15,000 euros. Five participants, 2,200 meters of travel. My favorite is Vinci Lisa, who comes from warning, has made a lot of progress and is the one who does the best distance. Triton is the one who has shown the most and the release makes him more dangerous, but she can have a hard time doing the meters, she won't make it easy. Tayrona reappears in the year after an injury, for value he should be in the fight, the third in discord.
