  1. The last CROWNTRON @ 35

    Or at least the last foal (alive) in the USA. There "might" be some in SWEDEN ? If anyone knows ? CROWNTRON of course being the sire of QUEEN L. Won won, and was 3rd in Prix de Amerique I think it is a horse named CROWNMINISTER (EE915) ? ...

  3. Swedish Sports artical 1975

    I would like to obtain a "frame able" copy of a article that appeared after our 1975 trip to Sovalla. The day AFTER the elitlopp one of the swedish papers declared QUICK WORK the "moral" victor, after he won his elimination, and finished a...

  4. Thank You PM Lofven

    I realize of course he sends THOUSANDS of such "autographed" ( auto-pen I am sure) photos every year. But still he sent one to my Dad (at my request) and I am grateful I am sure I would get something similar if I wrote to ABBA ? lol Still,...

  6. Whatever happened to the italian "Blonde Bombshell", or Lemon Dra ?

  8. GERMAN breeding info needed

    This concerns a filly CIAMPINO (speedy crown - candor's lady) that Dad trained for Jim Harrison. Dad got 1/2 of this filly for "training" her, and actually drove her on the PA Sires (fair) circuit. Jim sold (exported) her to GERMANY at the end...

  9. Horses don't have HIPA rights

    HIPA - Health Information Privacy Act. Does Europe have such a rule ? I don't know ? Horses are considered AGRICULTURAL PROPERTY, not any different than a cow, pig, or chicken. They can be bought, sold, and even "slaughtered" purely on the...

  11. 1975 elitlopp

    This race was very exciting, but a heartbreak as well. It hurts when circumstances beat your horse, and you can't do ANYTHING about it !! QUICK WORK was NOT a easy gate horse. And getting him "out" and thru the first turn was always a...

  12. the "judge" does drive

    Well Dad ( John DuCHARME ) did ( he is 90 now ) drive... It wasn't very often. The most interesting part to the European readers is the horse ( Richie Prospect ) who was named after ME. But more important finished 2nd to both Nevele Pride and...

  13. the quest for the "extra" step ? or breath

    Norway Trotting has shown some real courage and handed down a suspension worthy of the crime (doping) to French Trainer. Hopefully Sweden will also suspend Fabrice Souloy ? However ? IF they simply allow "trainership" to shift on "paper" to his...

  15. French trotting fan with a question

    Just wondering if there is a limit to monte races at a certain age for riders? I cannot find any information on why someone like Jean Michel Bazire (he of 17 Sulky D'ors) would hang up the boots and remain sulky only

  17. GREAT week-end

    For an american who has raced in Europe. The level of fan appreciation and support is heartwarming. American " Racinos" would "drop" LIVE racing in a heart-beat IF they are allowed ? I am glad the weather cooperated in Stockholm. When I was...

  18. Valley of Sin was invited to enter Sweden Cup, BUT

    unfortunately there was not enough time to logistically arrange all the blood work, and travel documents. Also, my father (John DuCHARME) is 90, and travel is difficult, and thus he could NOT come and watch his horse. VoS is "in" @ The Poconos...
