Of course one can complain. But Sacha Malter doesn’t think so. “We are very happy,” said the Secretary-General of the Munich Racing Club. This Sunday (starting at 11.20am) we are delighted to be able to take part in the Grand Dalmair Prize Race Day, and we are delighted to once again allow spectators to visit the racecourse grounds in Reem, i.e. 1000 spectators. “We’ve got it differently in the last 16 months,” Moulter says with a laugh.
Of course, European Championship football stadiums have new impressions of tens of thousands of people without gaps or masks, and memories of past Dalm കഴിഞ്ഞre racing days, which sometimes attracted 15,000 visitors. But compared to zero, the thousand is a good development, although you can still see it “far from the norm” in terms of hygiene and the lack of general promotions around the sponsor. The prize money is also lower, with ,000 100,000 being awarded in the main competition instead of the usual 5 155,000, with the winner 60 60,000.
That’s one reason why the selected starting field of six horses remains small. The other is difficult travel situations. Planned starters from England and Ireland would be canceled again. Another guest from England, Star Safari, withdrew when he received another from France – but can live with Mullet. Because now he can rave: “Europe has the best 2000m horse in Munich!” Six-year-old Zelding Scholeti, coached by Jerome Rainier, finally won the long champ. “He’s our superstar.” Skeleton will also face strong German horses such as Lord Charming or Groser Jack. The 1000 interested parties who can only buy tickets for exclusive entertainment online other than at the box office will be happy, but the Munich location field class is more important because it is about maintaining the quality of the main competition: Group 1, the best European category. So Malter is in a good mood – and expects “more progress in the fall”. The second Group 1 race will take place at Reem.
