How Swede it is for Linton’s new owner

Swedish energy tycoon Stefan Friborg will make the trip to Eagle Farm on Saturday to cheer on his Stradbroke Handicap runner Linton as his romance with Australian racing continues to blossom.

Friborg has extensive racing interests in South America, Dubai and Europe, but made his first foray into Australia 18 months ago by purchasing Linton from leading owner Lloyd Williams.

Friborg’s love of grey thoroughbreds made Linton the perfect horse to kick-start his Australian venture, and thankfully for trainer John Sadler and racing manager Troy Corstens, the six-year-old has held up his end of the bargain.

”We’re about 18 months on since Stefan bought Linton and the horse has won three of his seven races so it’s been a great start,” Corstens said.

■ Patinack Farm trainer John Thompson has been told by stewards any horses sold at the Gold Coast sales on Friday should not accept for Stradbroke day at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Nathan Tinkler’s Patinack Farm will sell many horses this week, including several who would normally have raced at Eagle Farm.
