Sweden’s southernmost trotting track is Jägersro outside Malmö.
Jägersro is the country’s only combined trot and canter arena, where the trot track is surrounded by a canter track.
Jägersro was inaugurated in May 1907 and is the country’s oldest equestrian arena.
On the first Sunday in September of each year, the Swedish Travderby at Jägersro is decided. The Derby has been run since 1928 and is considered the largest classic race for four-year-old Thoroughbreds.
Another great race at Jägersro is the Hugo Åberg Memorial which is run in July and attracts the world elite and upwards of 20,000 spectators. Jägersro also hosts Sweden’s oldest so-called classic vintage race - the Swedish breeding race. The race has been run since 1926 and is considered the largest race for the two-year-old Thoroughbreds.
