We are into June and the horses are running into form

Three winners, one runner-up on the night!

03 June 2021: Väsby Häst AB enjoyed a fine evening with a double at Øvrevoll Galopp, completed by General de Vega (above), as he ran out a game winner of the Hansinger Handicap over 1170 metres. Partnered by Jacob Johansen, he beat stable companion Abolish by half a length - giving Annike an excellent one-two in the sprint. Her four legged trainees are clearly running into very good form these days.

Mudjimba, ridden by Carlos Lopez, bounced back to form in the Holly Golightly Handicap over 1730 metres, beating Tatum readily by three parts of a length, with Hope And Glory in third place. We Got The Boss - who never runs a bad race - put up a tremendous fight in Hesteierforeningens Handicap, and shared the spoils with Face Of Energima as they ran a dead heat in this traditional contest. Swedish Dream, making his seasonal debut, ran a good second under top weight in a handicap over 1800 metres, and. A fine raceday for Skoganstallen's team!  GS

Stabell talk 2021

Mudjimba – one explosive performance

Mudjimba joined Annike's team last summer, after having won one of his four races while trained by Lars Kelp in Sweden, and he revealed his talent when successful at Øvrevoll Galopp in early October. The son of Kodiac captured the Zimoni Handicap by almost seven lengths - while also clocking what appeared to be a very good time for the 1750 metres over the dirt track. Mudjimba looked a progressive type on the day and there's every reason to hope that he can build on this form in 2021 – though he did disappoint next time out, when finishing fourth in similar company over 1600 metres, well beaten by the winner, Buckybabe. We Got the Boss and Mestre dos Magos filled second and third in the same contest. Mudjimba was so much better in his winning race. He broke perfectly, and jockey Maikel Narveaz Bravo sent him straight into a prominent role, chasing habitual front-runner Dickie Dickens. Mudjimba was travelling strongly just off the leader and he swooped past as they negotiated the home turn. Quickening right away, he opened up a clear lead and the result was never in doubt as he powered down the home straight. Mudjimba won by 6 3/4 lengths from Beau Nuage, a contender with good recent form behind winners like We Got The Boss, Our Boy John and Cockney Cracker.


Mudjima stopped the clocks in 1.50.5, while having more up his sleeve. It's well worth noting that Buffalo Soldier's time as he won over the same trip half an hour later was 1.54.2. The latter was 8kg below Mudjimba on the handicap list prior to this raceday so perhaps one should not read too much into these times. Then again, 3.7 seconds equals about 18-19 lengths, and, whichever way you look at it, Mudjimba has one explosive performance in the book as we are heading into the new season.  He is a half-brother to three winners in England, including the smart filly Lilly Rules, who was second in the Musidora Stakes (G3) at York a few years ago - beaten only by Kirsten Rausing's subsequent Group One winner Madame Chiang.

Mudjimba's impressive stroll

08 Oct 20: This Thursday fixture at Øvrevoll Galopp may have been an ordinary run of the mill card but there was nothing ordinary about Mudjima's performance in the Zimoni Handicap, a race he won by almost seven lengths - while also clocking what appeared to be a very good time for the 1750 metres over the dirt track. He had unseated his rider at the start last month but Mudjimba broke perfectly this time, and jockey Maikel Narveaz Bravo sent him straight into a prominent role, chasing habitual front-runner Dickie Dickens. Mudjimba was travelling strongly just off the leader and he swooped past as they negotiated the home turn. Quickening right away, he opened up a clear lead and the result was never in doubt as he powered down the home straight. He won by 6 3/4 lengths from Beau Nuage, a contender with good recent form behind winners like We Got The Boss, Our Boy John and Cockney Cracker. Annike was understandably full of praise in the winners' circle, and Mudjimba could be an exciting horse for the future. His far more experienced stable companion Mestre dos Magos did his bit for the team by taking third in the same race - on a night when Aconcagua also ran a good race, to get second in a sprint handicap.  With Swedish Dream once more confirming his class by finishing third in the Listed Arnfinn Lunds Minneløp on Sunday, this has been a good week for the stable. 


Mudjima, a three-year-old gelding owned by Vasby Hast AB, was completing only his second race in Norway. He stopped the clocks in 1.50.5, while having more up his sleeve. How good he might become is anybody's guess but it's well worth noting that Buffalo Soldier's time as he won over the same trip half an hour later was 1.54.2. The latter was 8kg below Mudjimba on the handicap list prior to this race day so perhaps one should not read too much into these times. Then again, 3.7 seconds equals about 18-19 lengths, and Mudjimba was without doubt the star of the show this evening.


Mudjimba is a half-brother to three winners in England, including the smart filly Lilly Rules, who was second in the Musidora Stakes (G3) at York a few years ago - beaten only by Kirsten Rausing's subsequent Group One winner Madame Chiang.  GS

Mudjimba, a three-year-old son of high profile stallion Kodiac out of the Giant's Causeway daughter Causeway Charm, has one win to his name, after just three runs. He won a maiden event over 1400 metres at Bro Park in October last year, when he beat Blue Gem and Hypochondriac in a close finish. Both of the placed runners in this race went on to win subsequently, indicating that Mudjimba's maiden form was useful - though he has himself been unplaced in three outings thus far in 2020. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him good. He is a half-brother to three winners in England / Ireland, successful from 6 to 8 furlongs.  24 Jun 20



General de Vega is a well bred three-year-old who has produced smart form in Sweden and Denmark and been third in a good conditions race at Meydan. A son of dual classic winner Lope de Vega, General de Vega broke his maiden by 4 1/2 lengths over 1200 metres on the dirt track at Bro Park in 2019, and he gained a 2 1/2-length win over 1400 metres / turf at Klampenborg in May. He spent the winter in Dubai, where he finished third in the Dubai Trophy over 1200 metres on turf, beaten just 2 lengths by Godolphin's winner, Platinum Star - a Listed winner in England last year. Out of Prix Vanteaux (G3) winner Just Little (Grand Slam), General de Vega is a half-brother to Radipole, a Listed winning miler in France before being exported to Australia, where he was placed in G2 and G3 events.
