On Friday evening, 5 February, 2016 Night Turf St. Moritz, the second presentation of horse racing on snow and ice by night guarantees more excitement than ever before! Last year’s premiere of the Night Turf was a huge success as more than 5,000 spectators watched the first night races on the frozen lake of St. Moritz.
On 5 February, the 2016 racing night will combine all of the excitement of horse racing on the frozen lake at St. Moritz including thoroughbreds, celebrities, culinary magnificence, fashion, and the spectacle of Light and Fire. This year the entire race track will be illuminated for the night races.
The two main sponsors for the 2016 presentation are LONGINES and BMW (Schweiz) AG. The mounted Celebrity Skikjöring presented by Credit Suisse will show daring stars pulled across the track of snow and ice by mounted thoroughbreds at night. In this race, too, only high-class race horses from renowned stables will be participating, ridden by experienced professional jockeys.
Admission to the frozen lake will be free for all visitors. Moreover, a limited number of VIP packages including dinner and a live concert by Boney M. feat. Liz Mitchell, and more, will be available.
