The last of the four qualification races for the 131st running of the Velka Pardubicka was run at Pardubice racecourse on Saturday, September 4th. This year’s September meeting at Pardubice was held 36 days before the big race (Sunday, October 10th).
In response to Sottovento’s fatal fall at the Taxis in the 2020 running of the Velka Pardubicka, a group was set up to propose ways to reduce the danger of this obstacle for horses and riders.

The third of the four qualification races for the 131st running of the Velka Pardubicka with Slavia Insurance attracted 12 runners on August 7th. Most Czech-trained horses that are intended to run in the VP had already qualified safely for the big race. Owners and trainers know that there is always a high risk of a very hot afternoon and rock-hard ground at Pardubice in August.
