Propulsion, driven by Ôrjan Kihlström and trained by Daniel Redén, had to trot three-wide the whole last lap but he still was able to win comfortably in 1:51.3f followed by French trotter Up And Quick driven by Björn Goop.

Propulsion, who was bred by Fredericka Caldwell and Bluestone Farms, got a purse for the winner of $115,000. He is owned by the Zet Stable and has now earned $2.1 million in his career.

The trio behind Propulsion -- Kihlström, Redén and Zet Stable -- had another win on the card as In Toto Sund (sired by Ken Warkentin) won a mare race in 1:52.3f.

In a race for 4-year-old trotters, Seven And Seven (sired by Chapter Seven) raced for the first time after being sold to owners in Norway, where he is trained by Frode Hamre. Seven And Seven was in command the whole trip for Erik Adielsson and won in 1:55 followed by two other North American expats, Rubio driven by Kihlström and King Of The Hill driven by Hans G. Eriksson.
