Horses having used Razer shoes and/or Propads had great success at Solvalla Racetrack near Stockholm on Sunday. The 2016 Elitlopp was broadcast in 20 countries, and drew applause from over 28,000 attendees.
Nuncio, a five-year-old, ever-growing star from the United States won despite sitting outside the leader without cover most of the mile. Racing with trainer Jimmy Takter as a three-year-old, Nuncio wore Razers and Propads when at Takter Stables (like all of Takter’s horses in training and/or during racing).
After Nuncio raced in the United States, at ages two and three, earning more than $1.9 million under the tutelage of first Jim Oscarsson and then Jimmy Takter, Melander took him to Sweden in 2015 and continued his success.
On the Elitlopp undercard, Pinkman, last year’s Hambletonian winner, won The Fyraåringseliten (Elite race for four-year-olds) for trainer Jimmy Takter. After a fast first quarter, they grabbed the lead, and won by a head over former U.S.-rival and Takter trainee Uncle Lasse. This race on Sunday earned him $60,240.
“I’ve been in this for a long time and I’ve had a lot of successes, I’m glad to have that joyful feeling back when I’m here. To be here is an experience in a lifetime, a unique place to be.
Pinkman now got the experience of being here, and another year is in favor for him and that might take him to The Elitlopp 2017,” Takter said.
Also on Sunday’s card, Takter’s millionaire Wild Honey won a Group 2 event for 4-year-old female trotters.
