Talking about the Gee-gees, one doesn't normally think of Switzerland. Nor does one think of St Moritz. Or a frozen lake. But that's exactly what happens every year on three Sundays in Feburary.
The 6-race card features 3 gallop races, skijöring and 2 trots - with runners and riders all appropriately equipped for the testing conditions.
