Stefan Melander’s Volstead (5m Cantab Hall-Madame Volo-Yankee Glide) took today’s 1640 meter autostart HKH Prins Daniel V75 Gold (400,000SEK to the winner) clocked in 1.09.8kr (1:52.31 mile rate).

Melander drove the 4.8/1 odds third choice and earned an Elitloppet invitation as a result of the win, his 13th in a career that also shows six seconds in 30 starts for earnings of 2,937,250SEK.

Volstead was bred in the US by Arden Homestead Stable.

1.1/1 Nimbus CD (6g Mythical Lindy-Kiss of Life-Tenor de Baine) was second today for Erik Adielsson, ahead of 13/1 Ed You (9g Love You-Lancia Brick-Super Arnie) driven by trainer Robert Bergh. 8/1 Mosaique Face with Lutfi Kolgjini up and 12/1 Food Money reined by Jennifer Tillman ended fourth and fifth with Magic Tonight sixth for Orjan Kihlstom and Cool Keeper seventh.

Today’s HKH Prins Daniels resulted in the winner Volstead and Magic Tonight to be added to the Elitloppet lineup.

The group named so far follows:

Magic Tonight


Call Me Keeper

On Track Piraten

BBS Sugarlight


Voltigeur de Myrt



Un Mec d’Heripre

Oasis Bi

Your Highness


The Elite race is shaping up to be competitive and interesting to see Nuncio and Timoko do battle.
