Champion Victor Kalejs strikes again
CHAMPION Victor Kalejs, a $10,000 yearling purchase by Chad Schumer, struck again on Thursday when successful in a valuable 3yo event at Jagersro in Sweden.
The son of Spring At Last ran down Stricker to win his fourth race in impressive fashion. His other victories for trainer Roy Kvisla include last year’s Norwegian Criterium.
Crowned last year’s Swedish Champion 2yo, Victor Kalejs was purchased by Chad Schumer for just $10,000 at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton October Sale in Kentucky on behalf of Irish pinhooker Johnny Collins of Brown Island Stables. He is out of Make A Promise, a Mr Greeley half-sister to G3 winner Essence.
Other recent runners to represent the Collins – Schumer partnership include the G3 Acomb Stakes winner Syphax, now racing for Godolphin, and dual winner High Acclaim.
