Rexdale, ON --- After his impressive win in the C$34,000 Preferred trot this past Monday at Woodbine, the connections of Take My Picture have accepted an invitation to the Elitlopp, to be raced on May 26 at the Solvalla Racetrack in Stockholm, Sweden.

This according to longtime Elitlopp liaison Klaus Koch.

Take My Picture will on paper take a big step up in class -- and a long plane ride -- to race in the Elitlopp
The 6-year-old son of Classic Photo has banked $742,832 in his career for trainer Nikolas Drennan and owner Joseph and Laurie Davino of Clarksburg, N.J.

“I really became aware of the horse when he became the fastest in Canada,” Koch said. “With Mister Herbie out with a hoof injury, I wanted to have another representative."

The 19-time winner was shipped to Woodbine to Drennan’s father, John, in early February where Take My Picture found immediate success.

The gelding has posted an impressive 6-1-1 in nine starts on Canadian soil. His most impressive victory came two starts ago, on April 22, when Take My Picture became the fastest trotter this season in Canada with a 1:52.3 career-best.

“As I watched Take My Picture race, I saw a very strong horse with a very good attitude and fighting spirit,” Koch said. “I was told that he is a very sound horse and I think he will cope with two races on the same day.”

Take My Picture is set to leave for Europe on Monday and Jody Jamieson has been asked to drive.
