The Premio Roma is a Group 1 flat horse race in Italy open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Capannelle over a distance 2,000 metres (about 1¼ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in November.

History[edit]

The event was established in 1911, and it was originally contested over 2,700 metres. The inaugural running had prize money of 50,000 lire.[1]

The race was shortened to 2,100 metres in 1913. It was extended to 2,200 metres in 1919, and increased to 2,800 metres in 1925.

The Premio Roma was given Group 1 status in the 1970s. It was cut to 2,000 metres in 1988. It is currently Europe's last top-level open-age flat race of the year.
