Sanity and On Track Piraten's one-two of last weekend's Prix de l'Union Europeenne brought to a close Sweden's most successful ever raid on the French winter racing season which included triumphs in two of the three French triple crown races.

Headed by Maharajah's win in the Prix d'Amérique and Noras Bean's Prix de France victory Swedish trotters won 19,052,124SEK (2,150,888 euros).

This compared with last winter season of 10,113,095 SEK (1,141,728 euros the 2011-2012 where the Swedes took home 11,145,315SEK (1,258,262 euros) of French prize money.

"The Swedish steel bites good," said Ulf Stenströmer in true Viking fashion after the victory in the Prix de France with his Noras Bean. And his forebears would have been proud of the riches brought home to Scandinavia following the succession of successful raids.

In Total did the Swedish horses made 320 starts in France in the period.

The Swedish trotting association website listed the 40 biggest prizes won by the Swedes during the winter meeting of 2013-2014. All statistics from this winter has been restated as of September 1, 2013 to effective 2 March 2014.
