Nothing like before 

What incredible times! Probably every one of our readers is affected by the so-called corona crisis in some way. This also applies to the elite auction on the eve of Sweden's most important trotting event, the Elitloppet. The sale will only take place online this time.
Nevertheless, we try to locate the trends in Swedish harness racing and have looked at the sire lines, maternal lines and also the first crops of the stallions.
