Breeders Cup is a huge deal. Both overseas but certainly here en Denmark as well. As such the Breeders Day cup is a big race day with anticipations running very high. As you can see there were several lovely contestants in this years version of events. Among them of course the two giants Stinger and Karmastrikesback. They ran against each other recently and a lot of people, among them me, thoúght it was going to be a battle between those two again.
That was not happening! Stinger lost a lot of lenghts coming out the box and it’s very hard to catch up in a race like that. But other than that the tippers had gotten it right as they had tipped Karmastrikes back as a winner and he did win very convincingly before Shalalee (SWE)/Jan-Erik Neuroth, Manacor/Elione Chaves.
Karmastrikesback (Academy Award-Blizzard Queen) is bred by Hjortebo Stud, Trained by Niels Petersen and is owned by 360 North Horse Racing Ab
