Another Big Race on the Elitloppet Card

Commander Crowe won the Elitloppet yesterday at Solvalla defeating Arch Madness who finished second.  Instead of repeating what has already been done, Standardbred Canada has a story about it along with replays.   

Instead, let's look at another race contested at Solvalla yesterday, the $41,855 Montéeliten (1,609 metres) which was won for the third year in a row by Juliano Star who was ridden by Eric Raffin in 1'10"9 (km rate) on the trot.



As you can see, these monté races can be exciting.  I am convinced once properly exposed, the North American gambler would be willing to bet on these races.

Wow!! I like this... I too see the potential. Hmm... Maybe Jeff Gural should try a few at all three of his tracks and get feedback.

There will be some racing under saddle as exhibitions this year. You can see what is going on by looking for Racing Under Saddle on Facebook.
