The Solvalla Saturday classic card included the three year old major events, the Svenskt Trav Oaks and Kriterium.

To set that stage was the Diamantstoet Final (purse to winner 220,000€, 2140 meters voltstart) went to 1.7/1 odds Lipstick Tooma (5f SJs Caviar-Finish Tooma-Windsongs Legacy) handled by Johan Untersteiner for the Daniel Reden/Stall Zet team.

Valetta (5f Going Kronos-Tigger-Extreme Dream) was second for Stefan Persson and third was Unique Juni (7f Uptown Yankee-Staro Unique-Supergill) with Jorgen Westholm at the lines,

This was her fourth win in ten 2020 starts. Race time was 1.13.1kr. Hokoken AM (3f Muscle Hill-My Love di Quattro-Love You) was second for Jorma Kontio and trainer Timo Nurmos. Barbro Kronos (3f Trixton-Fama Currit-Viking Kronos) took third for Erik Adielsson and Svante Bath.

And finally, the 2020 Svenskt Trav Kriterium (Gr. I National, 2,000,000SEK first prize, 2640 meters autostart) saw 8.6/1 Brambling (3m Bold Eagle-Deepdish-Muscle Hill-Pizza Dolce) score in 1.13.1kr for Orjan Kihlstrom and trainer Daniel Reden.

This was his fifth 2020 win in eight starts. San Moteur (3m Pan de Moteur-Gung San Suu Kti-Ready Cash) was second with Per Lennartsson up for trainer Goop. Henry Flyer Sisu (3g Bold Eagle-Marque Bluestone-Windsongs Legacy) took third money for reinsman Jorma Kontio and conditioner Timo Nurmos.


These races again illustrated the presence of Ready Cash, his son Bold Eagle, Love  You and Muscle Hill (and his son Trixton). This group is making a trotting difference and its also present in North America with Mohawk Million winner Venerate and Lexington winner Cuatro de Julio, these important two year-olds.
