Who is Già del Menhir
Già del Menhir is a horse with a chestnut coat, winner of the Palio di Siena twice (July 2, 2008 Istrice, July 2, 2009 Tartuca).
Già del Menhir is a horse legend, the horse of the records; his average victories on the Palio courses is impressive: two out of three, only Urbino has done better in the history of the Palio winning three out of four.
For many insiders Già del Menhir was the ideal horse prototype for the Piazza, cold-blooded at the races and unsurpassed in the three laps event. The great dispute over the “Piazza record”is still alive.
Già del Menhir ends his career in 2009; from that moment onwards, he lives freely on the pastures of his owner and trainer Massimo Coghe.
