The Hakkan Wallner Memorial (1,000,000SEK first prize, 2140 meters autostart, 12 starters, a Breeders Course event) produced a 26.6/1 upset harness racing winner in 1.11.9kr timed Aetos Kronos (3m Bold Eagle-Will of a Woman-Muscle Yankee) reined by Johan Untersteiner for trainer Jerry Riordan and owned by Team Snyder AB et.al.
 
This colt rallied from far back, starting the final turn, to defeat Acciaio (3m Love You- Light my Candle-Garland Lobell) reined by Orjan Kihlstrom for trainer Alessandro Gocciadoro. Third was Axl Rose (3m Love You-Linda di Casei-Uronometro) reined by trainer Gocciadoro that was seven for eight entering this race.
 
He engaged in a driver inspired battle with pacesetter and undefeated Upset Face (3m Joke Face-Iona LB-Supergill) that was a weakening fourth with Lutfi Kolgjini driving. From post one he was first to the lead and refused to relinquish quickly advancing Axl Rose. The power struggle set up the fast finishers.
