Legendary Swedish trainer Soren Nordin passed away early this morning (Sept. 6) in Sweden surrounded by his two sons, Jan and Ulf Nordin.

After a glorius career in Sweden, where he won the Swedish Trotting Derby no less than 11 times – still a record, the Elitlopp and no less than 21 times he was the leading driver at Solvalla, Stockholm.

In 1950 Soren Nordin won the prestigious Prix d’Amerique.

In 1980 he moved to United States and formed the highly successful Team Nordin stable together with his son, Jan.

They campaigned several top trotters and world champions including Baltic Speed, Brandy Hanover, Mr Drew, Sandy Bowl, Tarport Frenzy, Ron B Hanover and Nealy Lobell.

In the 90s the Nordin Stable moved to Italy as private trainer for the powerful Biasuzzi Stable.

Soren Nordin won 3,221 races in 10 different countries as a driver.
