The 71st OPAP Greek Derby offered glamour and a unique show


The 71st OPAP Greek Derby, the top racing event of the year, was concluded Wednesday July 5th 2017, with great success in Markopoulo. Thousands of spectators, horse lovers, state representatives, politicians, entrepreneurs, the media, athletes and artists filled the stands and watched a state of the art race meeting, with 7 exciting races.


The winner of the 71st Derby was the jockey Dimitris Drosos, who rode ΓΙΟΥΤΟΚΙΝΓΚΤΟΥΜΗ, of the Aegean Stables with Irene Keratsa as his trainer. This win is also a unique record, since for the first time in the history of Greek races a woman trainer conquers this “golden” victory.
