We kicked off our Special Run model reveals yesterday with the reveal of Speos, and today we are kicking off the reveals of this year’s Limited Edition models with this white hot mare – Via Lattea!
This Italian Trotter mare has turned heads on the track for more than one reason! Born in Italy, under the shadow of the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, this special mare became Europe’s first white trotter. Named after the white stars found in the Milky Way, she was bought by Tristan Sjoberg, who has indeed helped this special mare become a star on and off the track.

Via, who is no stranger to the spotlight, attracts the attention of trainers and press wherever she goes. Trainer Åke Svanstedt would say Via Lattea knows she is queen of the track and would rather get her picture taken than train!
Ending her successful racing career in 2019, which included a win in the $30,000 Bobby Weiss Series at Pocono Downs, Via Lattea has become a successful broodmare, even producing another white trotter foal in 2022!
For this year’s BreyerFest celebration of Driving Forward, Via Lattea has been done on mold #816 in beautiful, creamy white with soft pink highlights on her face and belly. All BreyerFest ticket holders will have access to purchase this stunning mare during BreyerFest weekend, and VIP ticket buyers will have the added bonus of being among the first to select and purchase this stunner as a part of their ticket package.
As well, BreyerFest fans joining us in person at the Kentucky Horse Park this summer will have the opportunity to meet this beautiful mare in person!
We will see you right back here on the BreyerFest Blog tomorrow!
