Stig H Johansson, born 1945, is considered one of the most successful trotting trainers and drivers of all time, both in Sweden and internationally.

With Victory Tilly – ”Without a doubt the best horse I have trained and raced with” – he wrote trotting history in August 2002. At The Meadowlands in New Jersey, USA, they won Nat Ray Trot at 1.08,9a/1609 m, the first equipage under the 1.09-barrier. But Stig H considers the victory in Elitloppet at Solvalla with the same Victory Tilly in 2000 as his greatest triumph ever. Yet he had won the race five times previously.

He won his first trotting race in 1963 and his last at Solvalla, his home track since 1966, on the 28 December 2005, the same day that he announced that he quit racing. He won 6 221 victories in the seat. From Stig H Johansson’s bursting track record can also be mentioned his 29 driver championships at Solvalla, of which the 27 most recent in unbroken succession. In 1993 he won the most prestigious race in the world, Prix d’Amerique in Paris, with Queen L.

Stora Alby Gård is, since the late 70’s, the headquarters of the Stig H Johansson Stable. The camp, located in Upplands Väsby less than 30 km north of Stockholm City, is home for Stig H Johansson and all the horses.

The training camp consists of a round track, a straight track and a hill track, so it is possible to give the horses a varied training.

“The training is based on each horse’s individual circumstances. And that philosophy is not unique in any way”, says Stig H. “To achieve optimal results for the horses, each horse has to be trained as hard as it can withstand. But it is a difficult balancing act and it is here that my skills as a professional horse trainer is put to the test”, Stig H continues.
