Our stable has done eight starts so far, which resulted in four victories and a third placement. A really good start of the year. Every victory brings a lot of joy, more positive energy and confidence in our work. Horses in our stable have been performing well under a long period of time now.
We already mentioned this year’s first winner for our stable, Cindy Photo, in the recent post. Shortly after came the other three, all in just last week: Dirty Dancing In, My Sacrifice and Trilli Holz.
Dirty Dancing In did three performances for our stable since she came to us, all of them in monté, and she came out as a winner every time, too! She seem to fit good in monté racing. D.D. won in Åby last Thursday, for the second time with Lina Renberg in the saddle. Their next mission together again is next Monday on the home race track in Halmstad.
Congratulations to the owner/breeder Invexbo AB!
Our stable had a really good evening in Åby last Thursday – My Sacrifice showed yet again how great she is and together with Stefan Söderkvist in sulky they scored a second victory in a row. My is a fine young lady in the making and future looks bright for her.
Congratulations to the owners Per & Ulf Nilsson and Christer Karlsson!
On Monday we took a trip all the way to Mantorp with Trilli Holz. This time she really showed her big heart and fierce fighting spirit. She raced the last 1200 m in the third row and took a clear lead in the last curve, but felt a bit alone without competitors around. She picked up the speed when she saw horses coming closer again and managed to take home a safe victory. Lina Renberg did a great job there again and went to take that so well deserved bouquet of tulips!
Salsa Knight was racing last Saturday in Jägersro together with Lina and they did a great race outside of the leader the whole way. It was a tough race he did and Lina did very good keeping him calm and finishing the race so well! The result was a third placement which feels like a victory to us. Salsa was injured earlier last year and he had to be operated. After 11 months we were happy he could start racing again and he was improving with every race. It thrills us that he feels good after the last race. He will be racing again after a couple of weeks.
Lina has had the most amazing start of the year as well. In four starts she won three times and was third once! We mentioned once before that she will be picking quite some flowers on the race tracks this year. Just keep them coming, we say!
We have a busy Monday next week in Halmstad. Six horses racing, two of them in monté qualifications. You are welcome to follow Purita, Dirty Dancing In, Run D.M.C., Sebastian Hall, Hannah Hall and Salsa too Knight:
Purita galloped the last time from a difficult volt position but ran good after. She is continuing to do good in training at home and we hope she will trott all the way through this time and do a good race. Magnus will be steering her this time.
Dirty Dancing In and Run D.M.C. will meet in the same race, monté. D.D. have three victories in a row and we are still happy with the way she is training. Anything can happen in a race but we believe she will deliver a good performance. Lina Renberg will sit in the saddle.
Run and Alicia J Larsson were on their way to their season’s monté debut in Kalmar last week. Unfortunately Alicia suffered a back injury during the warm-up and we had to scratch. But Alicia is a tough girl and a really good rider! She feels fit for fight again and they will give it another try on Monday. Run is still doing well in training and we hope for a good race.
Sebastian Hall just doesn’t seem to have the best of luck on his side lately. We just had to shake of the gallop in the last race and look positive toward his next race. Because he is a positive horse with a big and kind heart himself. And the puzzles will come together for him soon, too. Kevin Oscarsson will sit in the sulky this time and we just hope it will go well for them. Sebastian is, as always, feeling good and training well.
We are very excited about monté qualifications for Hannah Hall and Salsa too Knight. Hannah is a talented 4yo mare who is very big and powerful and we think she might fit good in monté to begin with. The same goes for ”Lille” Salsa. He is 4yo and very big, there is a lot of power in him as well. Hanna will be joining forces with Lina Renberg and Lille Salsa with Alicia J Larsson.
