A wonderful week is over and here I make an assessment of the drivers I have seen during my week in Hoting!
Champion Richard Nils Olof Skoglund still developing and this has Bergsåker a fine heir to all the other big names banana fostered, no one mentioned no one forgotten! Great to Richard despite great achievements is still modest in their appearance.
The runner-up in the driver compatible O Magnus Jonsson is a lovely guy that I, in a sense had indulged have become champion. Magnus train 27 horses, of which he is the breeder 15 of these, own brand yourself 16 horses plus co-own some of. Actually "mission impossible", but not for Magnus and his strong woman Caroline Melin! Now instead got Magnus take comfort in that forever take home Herman Hotings magnificent trophy.
Third in the league driver was Per Ove Anderson Lindqvist now 57 year old, probably better than ever in the bike.
Four were Mats Erik Adam Djuse as merely 20 year but a prospective groom champion, reminiscent of the driving style of Orjan Kihlström.
Fifth was "home manager" Jan-Olof Johansson of Hammerdal just over 8 mil from Hoting and thus before the nearest professional trainer. Jan-Olov drove 14 Hoting race during the week and was among the top five 12 of these starter, had only Jan-Olov lived more centrally in Sweden, he had undoubtedly been among the more popular Catch driving engines.
six were 1000 club machine Mikael Melander won 2 of their 7 uppsittningar Hoting. Lovely to see Michael back in fine form after his health problems.
Seven became amateur Hans Bergh, full brother with great trainer Robert Bergh. His impressed when his won with Hanz "Z" Johansson Jerk Terna Wind which in 92 start career finally got the win. For persevering Hanz Johansson (7 horses in training list) this was the first coaching victory since he won in the bike with Skarpåsibylla at Solänget the 17 september 2017.
Eight were Danneros Stefan Edin who made a sympathetic impression and joy in the winner's circle was striking when he won Solänget colleague Martin Åkerlund Feel Good, any suitable name.
Nia was Dannero Amateur Brage Hansen which I met for the first time, was impressed by Brage theoretical knowledge and hope he will soon reinforce Danneros professional tränarkår.
Tia was Umåkers Stefan Johanson year gets his breakthrough as a driver. Stefan running now with confidence and aplomb.
After 10 the charts I want to mention line-up Anders Gustafsson, who finally got the win again, Now with Lovely Coin who took his first victory in his 20:e start. Last time Anders won was the 3 november 2000 with its skilled Bestvin (25 wins and 854600kr). Tell awaited victory.
Big plus rating must also Umåkers talented Caroline Forsner few who was the one who went home from Hoting unbeaten when she won the race in Monte Dannero horse Macbeth Broline.
Even Jenny Björk gets plus grades 50% when she won the Järvsöfjellan, Two of the goals was her husband Mikael Halvarsson the father-Höjanna!
Weekly flop was comet driver Magnus A Djuses result whose 22 starter was victorious solve but consoled himself with 3 other places and 4 third places. Magnus is undoubtedly a great talent as a driver, reminds me of Bjorn Goops driving style.
Am sure that Magnus will again, the still young driver is safe from getting routine of the little special races on Hoting. One thing that Magnus needs to learn is to become calmer in tone to the officials. I know from experience that my youth language gave no positive return.
But one thing I know, it is that I and everyone I met, we all want to get back to Hoting next year.
