Propulsion, driven by Ôrjan Kihlström, won the UET Trotting Masters final at Ôstersund in Sweden.

The UET Trotting Masters became an exciting race, where Propulsion had to trot second-over without cover most over the trip, but three-wide was his archrival, Readly Express, driven by Björn Goop.

The leader was Cyber Lane, driven by Johan Untersteiner, but going into the stretch Cyber Lane faded and it looked to be a match between Propulsion and Readly Express. However, Milligan’s School, driven by Ulf Eriksson, who had followed Propulsion, found racing room on the inside, as Cyber Lane faded.

Milligan’s School finished strong, but Propulsion just managed to keep his head in front to post the victory in 1:53.1 (mile rate) followed by Milligan’s School and a very brave Readly Express.

This was win number seven from 11 races this year for Propulsion.
