Norway's Support Justice (5m Kadabra-Artisane-Lindy Lane) took today's Gr. I UET Masters Series Jubileumspokalen over 2140 meters autostart at Solvalla.

The winner earned 1 million SEK (US$145,140) for the victory, his 17th in 24 career starts, now with earnings of 4,732,895SEK. Geir Vegard Gundersen trains the winner and he was the driver.

The important victory was number five this year in eight outings. Winning time was 1.11.7kr (Varenne race record of 1.11.2kr in 2002).

BBS Sugarlight (5g Super Light-Sugarsweet Sid-Sugarcane Hanover) was second for Peter Untersteiner and Claes Boko ended third for Erik Adielsson teaming for trainer Stig H. Johansson. Stefan Melander's Standout (5m Ganymede-Ebony DK-Royal Troubador) was a fast closing fourth after encountering traffic trouble throughout from second tier post 11. John Campbell reined Standout.

Magic Tonight was first to the lead with Beer Summit In The Pocket. BBS Sugarlight was first up early and then Time Machine went three wide to move alongside leader Magic Tonight.

BBS Sugarlight was shuffled a bit and then made a three-wide charge late but could not hold off the eventual winner in what was a great contest with flying finish. Magic Tonight ended eighth, Beer Summit was tenth with Denmark's Stelton disqualified for a miscue.

Support Justice may be one to watch in other upcoming classics. Replay of today's Support Justice victory may be seen here.
