    In Copenhagen the Norwegian horse "Jens Protector" surprised race critics by winning the international trotting race against the French favourite "Jamin"
    The race; biggest trotting contest in Denmark to date, was contested by horses from seven nations: Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, Holland, Germany, Belgium. The Swedish "Prince Lad" and "Inventor" were second and third. Both "Jens Protector" and "Jamin" started on a handicap of 20 metres over the 1600 metre track.

    Jamin up to now has won about 1 1/2M kroner on the track of the European Grand Circuit in Paris, Nice and Stockholm. Jamin's main error was fumbling her position despite a & lead start and could only finish fourth. Jens Protector took the lead in the second round and kept ahead to the finish. The reward: 40M kroner.

    Jamin's owner Madame Olry - Roere reportedly has spent most of the last few weeks saying No to a potential buyer with 2M kroner for disposal.
