Casablanca, El Cuadro, Region Valparaiso, Chile. Saturday 28 April. Internationally renowned for its vast wine production, the Casablanca Valley is nestled between the coastal mountain range and the Pacific Ocean in the valleys of central Chile.

Just 45 minutes from Santiago and Valparaíso, this fertile valley is characterized by a refined production of white wine and its Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc varieties.

The races, from 40 to 160 km, were carried out near the Perales dam, a natural source of water for the wildlife of the area and for our horses; a magical rural setting surrounded by vineyards and native trees such as Maiten (Maytenus magellanica), Quillay (Quillaja saponaria), Peumo (Cryptocarya alba) and Boldo (Peumus boldus)...
