OK, you might not have heard of Lennart Jr Reuterskiold and wouldn’t have a clue as to the turn off to Taby, but Statue of Liberty appears to have a very classy performer in Sweden by the name of Uppercut Action.
Now the winner of eight of his 10 starts, the 3YO colt became Statue of Liberty’s 12th stakes winner on Saturday with an emphatic victory in the Jockeyklubbens Jubileumslopning (try saying that three times quickly with a few Heinekens under your belt!) over 1600m.
Trained by the aforementioned Reuterskiold, Uppercut Action is out of the Diaghlyphard (by Lyphard) mare Pep ‘n Chilli, who boasts a solid European black type family with Group winners in France, Ireland and England.
As for the turn off to Taby, you take the E18 out of Stockholm, turn right into Centralvägen, right onto Grindtorpsvägen, a slight right into Attundavägen, then the first right into Stora Marknadsvägen.
