Premio Mario Incisa della Rocchetta
The Premio Mario Incisa della Rocchetta is a Group 3 flat horse race in Italy which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at San Siro, Milan, over a distance of 2,000 metres (about 1¼ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May or June.
The event was originally called the Premio Legnano, but its title now honours Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the owner of the celebrated Italian racehorse Ribot. The race was formerly open to fillies and mares aged three or older. Its distance was cut from 2,000 to 1,600 metres in 1995, and this was extended to 2,400 metres in 1997. The present length, a return to 2,000 metres, was introduced in 2005. Simultaneously the event was restricted to three-year-old fillies only.
