This according to longtime Elitlopp liaison Klaus Koch.

“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.
