Turoveli was crushing in the Finnish Cup final. He took the lead right from the start and the others didn’t have a chance against his speed. The final kilometer time 1.25,5 is very good for a six-year-old. Biggest challenger and the other favorite for the race, Rapin Aatos, lost his chance breaking to canter 300 m left, but thanks to his tremendous final spurt he still managed to stretch for second place.
