Smokin Joe and Paladin to Åby

– He has been doing his winter training perfectly.

Lutfi Kolgjini was very pleased since Smokin Joe won the Breeders Course elimination at Jägersro.

Smokin Joe easily took care of the wire, then just slipped away and won easily with plenty of power left.

– He has a long season ahead, so the next start for him will be in the Breeders Course Final at Åby.

Smokin Joe was in Breeders Course last year, then took second place in Wolvega's final for 2-year–olds.

– It's a horse with a big step so I really think he'll be better over longer distances.

Behind the big favorit, Paladin and Roger Malmqvist successfully completed second place and are therefore also qualified for the final.
