Norrbottens Stora Pris, June 15 at Boden racetrack.
The fantastic race in the Midnight Sun!
A race with a first prize of 1 million SEK on Sweden’s northernmost racetrack, Boden! A price sum on race like this should not be possible on such a small track, but the tradition is strong in the amazing north of Sweden. And something the northerners are very proud of.
The first prize is guaranteed by several sponsors who likes to promote Boden and the Group I International race Norrbottens Stora Pris. The million in first prize has been a reality since 2012 and the race has seen participants such as winners of the Elitloppet and other international top horses. The winner the past three years has been the same horse, Propulsion Trained by Daniel Redén and driven by Örjan Kihlström. It seems that he likes the midnight sun and the fresh air in the north of Sweden. We believe that Propulsion will make himself immortal and capture the heart of all racing fans and win his fourth win in a row 2019.
The race day with Norrbottens Stora Pris has grown during the years and is besides a great trotting event also a large festival with over 10 000 in the audience every year.
The spectators come not just from Sweden but from all the Nordic countries and other parts of Europe to see top horses and top drivers compete with the Midnight Sun as fantastic scenery. The combination Midnight Sun and world class racing is something unique for Boden - in the far reaches of the amazing north.
