Eleven of Europe's top trotters will meet on Sunday afternoon at Solvalla Racecourse in the inaugural edition of the European Trotting Union's Trotting Masters, to be raced over 1-5/16 miles, and with a total purse of $765,000.... which makes it the second highest purse in a European trotting race for older horses.

During the year, trotters earned points in designated races and the hope was, that the 12 best trotters from in the standings as of Aug. 30 would meet in the final one month later. However, just three trotters from among the top 12 are in the lineup.

The three top trotters, Commander Crowe, Ready Cash and Roxanne Griff, are all absent -- Commander Crowe, because he was banned from racing for a fortnight after the Aby Stora Pris and therefore couldn't be entered here -- while the connections of Ready Cash and Roxanne Griff didn't want to go to Solvalla. Here is the field for Sunday's race:
