Stars’ Stable: Ponseri

Leave a comment

From Tähtien Talli/Ponseri

Ponseri was a foal star of his time. He won all his 17 races at the age of four, including the age-classes biggest wins in Kriterium and Oulu Express.

In between the star lost some of it’s shine, but made a comeback at the age of 11 by winning the trotter king’s crown in Helsinki. The year was good for him, since he trotted the cold-bloods’ world record on a mile in Mikkeli: 1.20,4. 

Ponseri died in 2004, leaving behind 274 offpsring. He was buried at his owner’s home yard.

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.
