Our Way 1
The seventh most successful Swedish trotter of al
l time in terms of prize money, at SEK 23,534,423. Magnificent MAHARAJAH Maharajah, one week old. 10 OUR WAY MENHAMMAR The culmination of a fantastic trotting career came on 26 January 2014, when Maharajah won the world’s toughest trotting race, the Prix d’Amerique, at Vincennes just outside Paris. Maharajah was already a winner before the race began. N o other Menhammar-bred horse has earned as much prize money as this peerless stallion. A total of SEK 23.5 million in earnings and 31 wins demonstrates that he was in a class of his own. Physical prowess is one of Maharajah’s primary characteristics. As one of 98 foals in Menhammar’s 2005 crop, all given names beginning with M, the colt was lithe and energetic from only a few months old. Few trotters have shown such enormous strength and stamina over long distances at a high tempo. Rapid recovery and a quick return to resting heart rate after training are also two winning attributes.
