Reports indicate that two of harness racing's top four-year-old trotters from 2014 will head to Europe for 2015 campaigns.
Creatine, the winner of the 2014 Allerage Open Trot will enter training in Sweden for trainer Robert Bergh. Bergh told Norway's tgn.no that this plan was originally discussed in October during The Red Mile's Grand Circuit meet when Creatine knocked off North America's top trotters, including divisional standout Sebastian K.
Owned by Adam & Chris Bowden's Diamond Creek Racing stable, Creatine (Andover Hall - Berry Nice Muscles) boasts 14 wins from 40 lifetime starts with more than $1.3 million in purse earnings.
One of Creatine's divisional rivals is also headed to Europe. Your So Vain, who was victorious in the 2014 Hambletonian Maturity, is off to Finland and will be trained by co-owner Reima Kuisla. While the son of Donato Hanover - Tennis Lover only made five starts in 2014, he banked more than $252,000 on the season and finished second to Maven in the Breeders Crown Open Trot elimination.
The news of Creatine and Your So Vain follows the revelation that Nuncio would also be campaigning only in Sweden for the 2015 season.
