All the races will be for horses and thoroughbred mares from three years old and upward, and the distances will range between 1,400m and 2,000m, with a total prize budget of €159,460 allocated, including two top races.
The Andalucia Prize will be run on August 18, with a €10,200 prize, and the Ciudad de Sanlucar grand prize, which will once again be the most prestigious race of the equestrian meeting, with a first prize of €13,600, which will be the final race on the last day of races, August 20.
According to the organisation, the dates of August 3, 6, and 18 will be the LAE day of Lototurf external bet, with five races to be held each day, as reported by lavozdigital.es.
