Maven is too fat Jimmy Takter found out Sunday morning (May 3), when he trained the top mare in Sweden.

"We have to put her on a diet," he told her groom Tobias Gustafsson.

Takter arrived in Copenhagen Sunday morning and a couple of hours later he was in the sulky behind Maven at Jägersro Racetrack in Malmoe.

Takter wanted to test the mare before her next race, the Broline Copenhagen Cup at Charlottenlund next Sunday (May 10) and the ultimate goal, the Elitlopp on May 31 at Solvalla.

Though Maven has to go on a diet, she seemed fit in Sunday morning’s training as she was timed unofficially in 1:53.4f.

"Now we hope that she will have some luck at the draw. Since I got her in training she has got outside posts in most of the races," Takter said to the Swedish press. "But we have to get her a little bit slimmer. I think she is too fond of eating the grass, so Tobias has to put a mask on her when he lets her out in the field."
