White Turf 2015

The name of the undisputed winner of the Gübelin 76th Grand Prix of St. Moritz is Fabrino. In front of 14,000 spectators, Terry Gahn repeated his previous year’s victory in the Grand Prix BMW and Leta Joos became the first woman ever to win in the Grand Prix CREDIT SUISSE Skikjoring, pulled behind Decorum. In all seven races a total of 103,009 Swiss Francs was bet. Seven-year old Fabrino from the Zurich Urdorfer stables of Miroslav Weiss was the clear winner in the colours of Charlotte Haselbach from Salenstein in the Canton of Thurgau in the Gübelin 76th Grand Prix of St. Moritz (111,111 Swiss Francs) and was ridden by Olivier Plaçais. After 2,000 meters, the Stallion - winner of the 2011 Swiss Derby - was eight lengths ahead of second-placed Marunas (Dennis Schiergen). Two lengths behind, the British guest Al Destoor (Steve Drowne) was in third. ‘I have always said that Fabrino would win the Grand Prix today. Nobody would believe me though’, said Miroslav Weiss, who for the third time provided the winner in the most important snow race after two previous victories with Treasure Bill and Song of Victory. His stable jockey Olivier Plaçais, who lives in Zurich, was surprised at how easily the 4.4:1-favourite ran past his opponents in the final curve. ‘I thought that I had hit the front with Fabrino much too early, but the opponents in the field were already beaten’, said the jockey, commenting on the action. There was a sense of great satisfaction in the camp of second-placed Marunas, trained and looked after by Peter Schiergen in Cologne. His son Dennis Schiergen was in the saddle: ‘Everything went to plan in the race. The winner simply wasn’t to be beaten today. Marunas has again shown great form.’
