From Suomenhevosjoukkue matkustaa Vincennesiin – ilmoittautumispäivä 29.1. (Hippos.fi)

Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian coldblood trotter horses race once a year in France. Each team consists of four horses. They race twice on the famous Vincennes track in Paris, at Prix des Trotteurs Sang Froid on 20th and at Prix des Pays Nordiques Trophée Järvsöfaks on 23rd of February 2014.

Vieskerin Valo, here winning at Kouvola, begins his racing year 2014 from Vermo on Wednesday. My personal favourite. ;)

The Finns have been eager to attend the Paris trip, this year we even got an elimination race in Vermo on Wednesday (January 29th)!  Two best horses from this race get tickets to Paris and two others are chosen from those who sign up.

What an interesting race! Metkutus, Suikun Rilla and Keisar are already experienced Paris travellers from earlier years, but anything can happen. There are coronation race participants as well as young age-class stars. Our team is cheering for Vieskerin Valo, though. ;)

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.
