Nahar took today's V75 Norbottens Stoprs Pris at Boden, a Gr. I UET Masters Series contest over 2140 meters autostart. The winner scored in 1.11.8kr for trainer/driver Robert Bergh and owner Stall Sedin HB.

Nahar is a nine-year-old gelded son of Love You from Mahonny Broline by Joie de Vie and the win today was his third in 2014 from five starts, and his 26th lifetime in 78 appearances, now for career earnings of 10,152,098SEK after earning one million SEK with the victory.

Raja Mirchi (by Viking Kronos) , and teamster Adrian Kolgjini, was a close second timed equal to the winner with Beer Summit (by Cantab Hall) third for Ulf Ohlsson. The US entrant, and Jimmy W. Takter trained, Uncle Peter finished fifth.

A large crowd witnessed the Robert Bergh-trained Nahar winning Norrbottens Stora Pris, with a thrilling battle in the lane with Raja Mirchi as the pair were as one before a reported 10,853 trotting fans at Boden. "I will look at the recap and admire the two horses for their great performances", trainer/driver Robert Bergh said after the contest.

At the halfway mark Adrian Kolgjini attacked with the pre-race favorite Raja Mirchi and took the lead. Nahar (the 2013 winner of this race and the 2013 Elitloppet) and Robert Bergh were well back in the field. But, Nahar quickly reached the leader 800 meters from the line, and won the stretch-long duel.

Bergh stated on interview "it felt good around the final turn, but I saw that Raja Mirchi also looked great. I thought that we should go all the way 200 meters to the finish, but Raja Mirchi fought well so I had to pull the ear plugs 100 meters left, which concluded the race."
