Stars’ Stable: Vonkaus

Leave a comment

From Tähtien Talli / Vonkaus

Vonkaus was one of the legendary geldings. He won the Suurmestaruus (grand championship race) in the years 1968, 69 and -71. He also made two Finnish records, first 1.24,6 and later 1.24,2.

Raimo Naumanen wrote a book about the gelding, called Voiton vei Vonkaus (The winner is Vonkaus, 1978)

A horse can be nominated to Stars’ Stable (Tähtien Talli) for outstandingly good performances in the trotting races. So far 8 warmblooded trotters and 8 finnhorses have been nominated. See them all at Hippos.fi / Tähtien talli

I'm Finnish media student and finnhorse enthusiast. I started my blog "National Treasure" in 2009. I'm aiming to provide information about this multipurpose horse breed in English, in all its variety -as a historical and cultural figure, modern sport horse, friend and a companion. The blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland.
