The finale of White Turf St Moritz 2016 took place on Sunday 21st Febraury. After somewhat of a trying start to this year’s event, due to the cancellation of racing on the first Sunday, the finale was a happy and eventful day. See here a selection of great photos by photographer Geoff Pegler catching the action and excitement of the day.
