May 23, 2020 - Racing Mange (7m Orlando Vici-Kara Kickan-Alf Palema) held the front gamely to win the harness racing featured Gr. II STL Gold – Vagen till Elitloppet (purse to winner 300,000SEK, 1609 meters autostart, 10 starters) and earn an Elite Race ticket.

Joakim Lovgren reined and trains the now 11th career winner that has earned 4,388,942SEK.

It was his first 2020 victory in four outings, this timed in 1.09.7kr.

He was off at 5.22/1 odds and trainer Lovgren previously handled an Elitloppet winner, Brioni.

The blanket finish had Conrads Rodluva (5f SJs Caviar-Moviestar-Juliano Star) second for Orjan Kihlstrom and third went to Billie de Montfort with Bjorn Goop aboard.

Billie was away from post one and settled briefly in third before vacating for a second over position.

Past the thee quarter park she attacked but ended three wide as Conrads Rodluva pulled the pocked between horses.
