Suomenhevosten Derby-finalistit selvillä (Hippos.fi 19.8.2011)

The Middle-Finnish Derby elimination races were held at Jyväskylä on Thursday. The most important race for the five-year-olds is at hand on 27th of August in Jyväskylä, with the first prize of 25 000€. Gustav Dahlia, Sörkän Sälli and Turossi took the elimination race wins, but will this success continue at the final?

The Derby is a classic age-class race. Many legendary finnhorses have shown their true talent in the Derby,the winners table shows for example the four-time trotter king Patrik, the three-time queen I.P. Vipotiina, the breeding giant Turo and last year’s winner Pihlajan Aaroni, who can now be called the best coldblood trotter of the nordic countries.

So these five-year-olds are also names one should remember, very possible future open class trotters.

The race is 2100m auto start. Drivers are announced later.

1. Turossi (Turo – Salperon Tähti – Nils-Aslak)
2. Gustav Dahlia (Turo – Vokkerin Palsami – Vokker)

I'm a Finnish horse enthusiast. This blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland. I started in 2009. My aim is 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.
