Wargrave confidently wins the LONGINES 81st Grand Prix of St. Moritz

On the final Race Sunday, 13,500 spectators cheered for the winner of the LONGINES 81st Grand Prix of St. Moritz, which carries a prize money purse of 111,111 Swiss francs, as Wargrave gave them a terrific show: The four-year-old stallion dominated the field from the front and won by a clear margin of one and a half lengths over Hout Bay. Jockey Dennis Schiergen had ridden Wargrave to victory. In the Grand Prix BMW Apollo San didn’t give his fellow trotter competitors a chance. The new “King of the Engadine” is Adrian von Gunten, who not only won the Grand Prix CREDIT SUISSE on Zambeso, but also the overall skijoring class. With the three most highly remunerated races in all disciplines – the LONGINES 81st Grand Prix of St. Moritz (gallop), the Grand Prix CREDIT SUISSE (skijoring) and the Grand Prix BMW (trot) – the third and final White Turf Sunday turned out to be a highly exciting top-class event for the 13,500 spectators. “As the organizer, you can only wish for such a successful race day,” said Thomas C. Walther, Chairman of the St. Moritz Racing Association in summary. “The atmosphere among the spectators on the lake was excellent. I am happy all round, grateful for this great day and proud of my team!”
