Capannelle Racecourse

Capannelle Racecourse, also known as Ippodromo Capannelle, is a horse racing venue in Rome, Italy. The course was first constructed in 1881, and it was rebuilt in 1926.

It is presently the venue of three Group 1 flat races – the Premio Presidente della Repubblica, the Premio Lydia Tesio and the Premio Roma. The track also stages the most valuable flat race in Italy, the Derby Italiano, which was downgraded to Group 2 status in 2009.
