Sebastian K retired, will stand in North America
« Return to News
Knutsson Trotting has issued a press release announcing that its world champion Sebastian K has been retired from racing due to a suspensory injury.
Sebastian K was an elite performer in Sweden for many years, earning Horse of the Year honors in 2012, before he relocated to the U.S. with Swedish trainer Ake Svanstedt when Svanstedt decided to compete in North America. The two took control of the U.S. trotting scene early in 2014 and Sebastian K trotted to a world record of 1:49 at Pocono Downs while on his way to Trotting Horse of the Year honors.
Sebastian K was collected for breeding this winter before he trained in preparation for his 2015 season, with the semen shipped to Sweden for European-based mares.
