French stallion Orlando Vici took his place as an adopted Aussie at The Elitloppet in Sweden.

French stallion Orlando Vici took his place as an adopted Aussie at The Elitloppet in Sweden.

As sire of Australian representative Just Believe, Orlando Vici further enhanced his standing not only as an internationally acclaimed stallion, but also his influence on Australian harness racing.

The son of Quadrophenio has had just 25 starters in Australia from 36 foals of racing age for 21 winners - a remarkable strike rate.

Just Believe tops his list as an Inter-Dominion champion and Great South Star winner in 18 career wins for $668,463.

Cravache Dor (12 wins) dominated as a 3yo last season and Visionary has stamped herself as a mare on the rise as a group 1 winner.

Orlando Vici has a strike rate of better than 50 per cent this season with 11 individual winners from 18 starters.

Rapid Return became his latest winner with success on debut at Charlton as part of a trifecta for Orlando Vici, while in addition NZ-bred mare Adelle continues to impress in Queensland.

While The Elitloppet did not pan out as hoped for Just Believe, we can look forward to him making at least one more appearance in Europe before he heads back to Australia.
