Lou Guida's trotting mare Lisa America will be taking on Elitlopp runner-up Rapide Lebel in the Kymi Grand Prix in Finland on Saturday. The field also includes Amour Ami, a 9-year-old stud by Tagliabue out of Amour Hall, a sister to Conway Hall, Angus Hall and Andover Hall. A victory by Amour Hall would be a small consolation to his owners, Henrik and Daniel Sedin's Sedin Stable.
The Sedin twins are starting players for the Vancouver Canucks, which lost the championship game for the Stanley Cup on Wednesday night.
Also in the race is the 37-race winner Commander Crowe, a son of the French sire Juliano Star and the Mack Lobell mare Somack.
In addition to Rapide Lebel, Lisa America also competed in the Elitlopp and finished fourth in her elimination. Yield Boko and Rakas also competed in the Elitlopp.
Here is the complete field for the 2,100 meter race:
1--Commander Crowe (Jean-Michel Bazire)
2--Rapide Lebel (Eric Raffin)
3--Express Type (Harri Koivunen)
4--Yield Boko (Jorma Kontio)
5--Amour Ami (Mika Forss)
6--Lisa America (Torbjorn Jansson)
7--Nina de Gesvres (Verva Guy)
8--Ladakh Jiel (Akseli Lahtinen)
9--Merckx OK (Pietro Gubellini)
