Ascona, Basel, Geneva, St. Gallen and St. Moritz are the five main constellations in the Swiss horse racing firmament.

Five international five-star jump race meetings, reflecting their global significance and standing.

The most recent addition to the group is the Ticino meeting, the Longines CSI Ascona, which, after the trial runs of past years, where its rating increased from three to four and then five stars, is now set to be another major event. The dates to put in your diary are 19-23 July 2018; you’re guaranteed quite a show!

So, what can you expect from the twenty-sixth race meeting?  First of all, a spectacular event. While Ascona saw some big names and a lot of quality in years gone by, when it was a three-star and four-star event, everything is now in place to make 2018 another landmark moment in the meeting’s history. This is thanks to the numerous sponsors, public bodies, the town council, the Patriziato, the tourism office and the Society of Hotel Owners, who together have allowed us to achieve our dream of an international horse racing competition for the region that Switzerland can be proud of. We look forward to welcoming lots of you to the fifteen races, held over four days of excellent sport.
