Via USTA News: Rain could not stop Sweden’s Maharajah from winning one of the most prestigious trotting races in the world, the Prix d’Amerique, on Sunday afternoon (Jan. 26) over a sloppy track at Vincennes. After a pocket ride, driver Örjan Kihlström found racing room going into the stretch and went around leader Up and Quick, driven by Jean Michel Bazire. Maharajah won by a length and was timed in 1:58 (mile rate). The purse for the winner was $615.000.
