St Moritz, Switzerland
White Turf is an exciting, exclusive and traditional event that takes place annually, in the middle of the frozen lake of St Moritz on the first three Sundays in February.
What started as a visionary’s idea for equestrian enthusiasts now holds a prominent place on the international racing calendar. This spectacular fixture not only incorporates world class horse racing but also gourmet catering, live music and captivating art exhibitions.

Noble thoroughbreds take part from all over Europe accompanied by their international jockeys. It is such great fun, not only for those with a passion for racing, but for everyone to enjoy a glass of champagne and gourmet food whilst cheering on the horses and taking in the unique atmosphere. With the spectacular surroundings of the frozen lake and winter mountains towering above, it is an unforgettable event that is a highlight of the winter season in St Moritz.
