June 17, 2017 - Johan Untersteiner and 13/1 Carabinieri (6m Wellino Boko-Dew Princess-JR Broline) stalked embattled pacesetter Timoko (10m Imoko-Kiss Me Coulonces-And Arifant) with Bjorn Goop up, and surged past with little yardage remaining to post a length victory timed in 1.11kr.

The Kymi Grand Prix was raced over 2100 meters autostart and is a Gr. I UET Trotting Masters event.

Carabinieri is trained by Peter Untersteiner and scored his fifth 2017 win in eight starts. The winning share of the €165,000 purse was €100,000. Timoko’ s son, Dreammoko (4m Timoko-Uranie d’Atout-Kaisy Dream) was third for Gabriele Gelormini and trainer Richard Westerink who conditions Timoko. Up And Quick was fourth for Joseph Verbeeck ahead of Big Headache and Heikki Mikkon. Buzz Mearas and Jorma Kontio tried early punishing tactics against Timoko and it failed miserably. The first 500 meters was clocked in a blistering 1.06.5kr time. The race preview and replay links are shown below.



Earlier in the program the lightly raced but well-traveled Classic Connection (3m Love You-Cry’s Dream-Taurus Dream) recorded his first career win in four starts. Bjorn Goop drove the youngster for trainer Yves Boireau and breeder/owner Jean-Pierre Dubois. This one has been around, bred in Denmark, raced in France, Belgium.  Netherlands and now Finland.
