Ten runners started in the Euros 15,000 race run on the dirt tracks at Jägersro and the Group 3 race was run over a distance of 1730 metres.
It turned out a cracking race and inside the last hundred meters three horses were lying side by side. In the end Maria Hagman-Eriksson’s Jaldi Karo
under jockey Per A Graberg denied Macallan, a two-time winner of the Wathba Stallions Sprint Cup. Macallan was ridden by Martin Rodrigues and the newly imported Al Mounteze Monlau under E. Chaves finished third.
The winning time was 2 minutes and 0.9 seconds.
