The Maia racecourse is located in the Italian city of Merano. Racing was first introduced in 1935 and the principal race is the Gran Premio Merano Forst which is a steeplechase contested each September over 5000 metres. In the latest running in 2009 it was won by Sharstar, ridden by R.Romano, who got the better of Royale Is by 2 1/4 lengths.
  The circuit itself is some 2000 metres in circumference and has an impressive grandstand which has the capacity to hold 8000 people.
