Meet Liising, the most popular stud in Finland

Liising has covered 150 mares a year for the last four years and already has over 600 foals progeny.

Owner Juha Kortekallio refers to him as a humble worker with good nerves. “Also his foals are great race horses. They are fast to develop but have enough humour to race also as adults. They are easy to handle at home but tough on the track”.

Liising has a strong sire line that goes back to Vieteri through Patrik and V.T. Ajatus. Liising’s sons Tuokkolan Touho, Köppinen and Lars (just to name a few) have also already started their breeding careers. “There are quite many Liising’s sons and daughters racing in open races. For example last Saturday there was a T75 race in Turku, where the winner, second and fourth places went to Liising’s sons!”

Coronation races encourage the finnhorse breeders

In Liising’s case the mares are covered through artificial insemination. His sperm takes the freezing well, the maximum amount of mares for one stud is 150 per year. The foaling percent is about 70, giving Liising about 100 foals progeny per year.

Kortekallio thinks that it’s an easier task for a Finnish breeder to have finnhorses than other breeds, since all the best horses of this breed are in Finland. “The breeder has a chance to see all the stallions live quite easily”, he says.

The best race horses can earn a living, but how about horse breeding?

“It’s not financially profitable by any means, but for most of us it’s a lifestyle. Luckily we have got the annual Coronation Trot event. Every breeder and owner wishes to have their horse competing there one day and that’s what keeps them trying”.
