Propulsion (7m Muscle Hill-Danae-Andover Hall) was a game three-time winner of the Gr. I International Hugo Abergs Memorial at Jagersro on Tuesday evening. Orjan Kihlstom teamed the 1.46/1 winner for Stall Zet and trainer Daniel Reden.

Propulsion was timed in 1.09.4kr to win after a tough grind against Dante Boko and others. He was away sixth and began an outside journey before the 600 meter mark and eventually moved three wide in an attacking mode on the backstretch. He raced there alongside his rivals until top of the stretch when he drew off to a commanding lead.

Bjorn Goop hustled veteran Up And Quick (10m Buvetier d’Aunou-Fichtre-Quiton du Coral) from far back to gain second about three lengths in arrears. Antoine Lherete trains this former Prix d’Amerique winner for Ecurie Quick Star. Pastor Bob (5g From Above-Estrada OR-Supergill) was a game third for trainer/driver Johan Untersteiner.

Dante Boko held fourth and Rajesh Face was fifth in the solid field that raced 1609 meters autostart for a total purse of 175,700 euro with 100,400 euro to the winner.

Propulsion now has a 29-11-7 slate in 60 career starts for 18,185,317SEK earned. Up And Quick raised his career earnings to 21,487,828SEK in 72 lifetime appearances.

The undercard was also a superb presentation of trotting excellence led by the 120,480 euro total purse Premio Going Kronos for three year olds. 22/1 Zeus Bi (3m Donato Hanover-Las Brisas Bi-Toss Out) was victorious in the 1609 meter autostart contest timed in 1.11.1kr as he rallied for a narrow score.

Erik Adielsson teamed the winner for trainer Fredrik Linder and Stall Courant AB. Holy Water (3m Pastor Stephen-Long Island Iced Tea-SJs Photo) was second for Christoffer Eriksson and trainer Tomas Malmqvist,  and Zelig Kronos (3m Muscle Hill-Laika Ek-Atlas Fighter L) took the third check for driver Wim Paal and trainer Cristian Rizzo for owner Scuderia Union Perfect Srl.
