Vieteri was a legend of his time. He won the Trotter King’s crown five times in 1973, -74, -76, -77 and -78. The stallion was naturally talented and proved it already in the 4-year-old Derby. Vieteri was also the first finnhorse ever to achieve winnings over 1 000 000mk.
Juhani Matela wrote a book about Vieteri. “Valtias Vieteri” was published in 1979.
