The Grand Prize of Manacor has been taking place since 1957, when Auberive, reined in by B. Fullana, won although it was not held in the years 1959 and 1973. The distance covered in the race has varied from a maximum of 2,440 metres to the current 2,375 since 1993 when Tarpan de Vixi won.
The Grand Prize of Manacor is considered by many as the rematch of the Grand national Prize, in fact the race is aimed at 3-year-old fillies and colts; the only difference with the race held at Son Pardo is that geldings are also allowed to compete. It is the race of the year in the east of Majorca track, the one which calls everybody’s attention the most: horsemen and horsewomen, enthusiasts and the general public, and it is also the one with the highest budget.
The riders whose names have been written in gold after their participation in the Great Prize of Manacor are: Tomeu Llobet, Julià Arnau, Joan “Candil”, Biel Pou and Guillem Andreu with three victories each and especially Joan Antoni Riera “Boveret” with seven. Since 2004, the record in this race has been in the hands of Jack di Mommes with a reduction of 1, 17, 0.
