The biggest age-class race for four-year-old coldblood trotters with 38 000 euro prize money, Kriterium, is a very honoured race, and winning it must be a dream of every trotter horse breeder, horse owner and trainer in Finland. This year the favourite Siirin Älli was overwhelmingly superior to all opponents, though the win wasn’t written in stone beforehand. Second to finish was Vixen and bronze medal went to Kupori. Tough foal star Jokivarren Kunkku galloped only 500m before the finish line. Siirin Älli has raced nine times in his career, seven of those races ending in winner’s circle. This win doubled his earnings.
