Finnish Cup 2013

From Suomen Cup Kylmäverihevosille 2013 (jokimaanravit.fi) and Diktaattori vei Suomen Cupin 5000 euron bonusrahan Mikkeliin (hevosjalostusliitot.fi)

Lahti racetrack has revived a traditional harness racing cup, Suomen Cup, for coldblood trotters. The idea is to have the regional champions, chosen by elimination races, to compete against each other in the final, and therefore create some tension between the cheering crowds from different regions. ;)

This year the cup will have its elimination races held through March and the final takes place at Lahti 6th of April. The horses should live in the region they are wished to represent and participate the elimination race of that chosen region.

 

Elimination races & tracks:
Fri 8.3. Jyväskylä  Central Finland  and  Southern Savonia
Mon 11.3. Oulu   Lapland, Ostrobothnia and Kainuu
Mon 18.3. Seinäjoki  South Ostrobothnia, Middle Ostrobothnia and Svenska Österbotten
Fri 22.3. Turku  Satakunta, Häme and Varsinais-Suomi
Wed 27.3. Vermo  Southern Finland, Kymi-Karelia and Nylands län
Fri 29.3. Kuopio   North Karelia and  Northern Savonia

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.
