Swedishman

Swedishman (8g Gogo-Volgana), with veteran reinsman Joseph Verbeeck aboard, worked out a perfect pocket trip in this 2700 meter autostart contest before closing along the pegs to win the €100,000 Gr. III Grand Prix Federation du Nord in 1.12.8kr at La Capelle. He went off at odds of 8-1.

Swedishman was first to the front before yielding to favorite Roi du Lupin handled by Anthony Barrier. Roi du Lupin led into the stretch after holding off a first over bid, from sixth, by the great mare Roxane Griff and Eric Raffin.

Roxane Griff was unable to reach the leader and ended a tiring fifth. Roi du Lupin held on bravely for second ahead of Reve de Baylev with Mathieu Abrivard aboard. Quinoa du Gers was fourth for Franck Ouvrie.

Swedishman recorded his 24th win now for earnings of €756,300. Thierry Duvaldestin trains the winner that earlier took the 2013 Grand National du Trot. Gaylor Chaudemanch owns the winner. Race summary and stretch drive video follow.
