Allegri celebrates

On the opening day of the Champions League soccer edition 2022-23, the Capannelle Racecourse is also celebrating the event.
In fact, the winner of the first race of the afternoon at the Roman racecourse was a mare owned by Juventus coach Max Allegri, a 2-year-old filly named Estrosa, who was also able to solve in beautiful style a test for rookies proving to be an excellent prospect.

Jockey Di Tocco, who led Estrosa to victory in the Premio Chiese Trofeo ITM Irish Thorougbred Marketing, wore the amaranth-colored jacket obviously in deference to Livorno, home of the Italian coach.

Allegri, who was busy in Paris for his Juventus’ Champions League match against PSG, watched the victory via live streaming and was thrilled with the achievement through the words of two of his representatives present on the field.

Famously, he used his “short snout,” often used in press conferences before or after matches, to compare a narrow victory on a soccer field, compared to one of the most commonly used terminologies in horseracing to emphasize a victory by inches. Estrosa did more, winning by almost 3 lengths. Basically like a..3-0 away from home. Not bad. Who knows, it may bode well for tonight’s match at the Parc des Princes.

Also present on the afternoon at Capannelle was former Lazio bomber Bruno Giordano, who came to follow the exploits of another mare, one owned by his great friend Antonio Di Carlo, a great fan, who finished third in the same race.
