World Pool Set for Gran Premio Latinoamericano Debut

By | October 5, 2023


Latin America’s biggest Group 1 race to be globally commingled

This Sunday’s G1 Longines Grand Premio Latinamericano at San Isidro will, for the first time, be a World Pool event.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) has confirmed that while the local tote in Argentina will not commingle internationally, other partners’ pools from the likes of Australia, France, North America and Hong Kong will be joined up by World Pool, the largest globally commingled horse racing pools created and powered by the HKJC.

Back-to-back Brazilian G1 winner Doutor Sureno is one of the leading contenders for this year’s edition, which has been won previously by the likes of Aero Trem, who went on to finish fifth in The Saudi Cup in 2022, and Sixties Song, who also contested the 2017 G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

The Latin American G1 contest will close what is set to be a bumper weekend of World Pool action, with five races on Turnbull Stakes Day from Flemington in Australia followed by four races from Newmarket on Sun Chariot Stakes Day. This is not only the first time the World Pool has been in operation in Latin America but also the first time it will be engaged across three continents on a single weekend.

“One of the core motives for World Pool is to connect totes from across the globe for the most important races, so we’re delighted to have extended our reach to take in Latin America’s biggest Group 1 contest,” the Wagering Products Executive Director for the HKJC, Michael Fitzsimons, said. “The combination of Turnbull Stakes Day, Sun Chariot Stakes Day and then the Gran Premio Latinoamericano on Sunday makes this weekend’s World Pool action a real Group 1 feast for punters around the globe.”
