Big-race double for Wido Neuroth

15 June 2020 17:08

Top Norwegian trainer Wido Neuroth saddled the winners of both the Listed Bro Park Vårsprint and the Swedish 2000 Guineas at Bro Park on Sunday.

The Neuroth team suffered a bad start to the week, as Wido Neuroth's son and stable jockey Jan-Erik broke his femur and punctured a lung in a fall during track work at Øvrevoll Racecourse in Norway.

Jockey Sandro de Paiva replaced Jan-Erik Neuroth in the Listed WikingTryck Bro Park Vårsprint as well as the Swedish 2000 Guineas, and he didn't make the connections disappointed.

De Paiva began by riding Everest Voice to victory in the Swedish 2000 Guineas (1,600m turf). The victory was worth €47,000 for owners Stall Perlen.

Everest Voice is a son of Poet's Voice and the five-time Listed-winning mare La Zona (Singspiel). His next target will most likely be the Swedish Derby at Jägersro in Malmö on 12 July.

The last race of the day was the ListedWiking Tryck Bro Park Vårsprint (1,200m turf), in which Wido Neuroth saddled two horses. Dardenne and Sandro de Paiva crossed the line first, just one length ahead of stable mate Brian Ryan (Finjaan).

Dardenne has visited the winners' enclosure on many previous occasions, including in the 2017 Swedish 2000 Guineas. However, Sunday's Listed victory was the first black-type success for the Norwegian-bred six-year-old, a son Footstepsinthesand. The win was worth €15,700 for owners Stall EOS.
