The July 29th edition of the Hugo Abergs Memorial is set and includes prior multiple winner Commander Crowe and rivals Magic Tonight (bred by Canadians Libfeld and Katz), Un Mer d'Heripre and Oasis Bi.
This famous international event, contested over 1609 meters, started in 1970, has a rich history with many US-bred winners including Peace Corps (a two-time winner), Sea Cove, Kosar,, Pershing, Citation and others.
Two-time winners, in addition to those noted above, include Lavec Kronos, Gidde Palema, Rite On Line, Big Spender and Express Gaxe. With good weather they expect a competitive and fast race over the 1000 meter course at Jagersro (Malmo, SWE) as the combatants seek the winners' share of the 1.75SEK million purse in this Gr. I International test.
