Premio Carlo d'Alessio
The Premio Carlo d'Alessio is a Group 3 flat horse race in Italy which is open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Capannelle, Rome, over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.
The event was formerly known as the Premio Ellington, and in 1991 it was promoted to Group 2 status. It was given its present title in 2000, in memory of Carlo d'Alessio (1915–1994), an Italian lawyer who was a successful racehorse owner . D'Alessio's most famous horses, all trained in England, were Bolkonski, Le Moss, Tolomeo and Wollow.
The distance of the Premio Carlo d'Alessio was extended to 2,800 metres in 2001, and its previous length, 2,400 metres, was restored in 2005. The race was downgraded to Group 3 class in 2006.
