Premio Federico Tesio

The Premio Federico Tesio is a Group 3 flat horse race in Italy which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at San Siro, Milan, over a distance of 2,200 metres (about 1 mile and 3 furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late September or early October.

The event is named in honour of Federico Tesio (1869–1954), one of the most successful horse breeders in the sport's history.
