Täby Open Sprint Championship
The Täby Open Sprint Championship is a Listed flat horse race in Sweden which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Täby over a distance of 1,150 metres (about 5¾ furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.
The event was promoted to Group 3 level in 1998, and it became the second race with such a status in Sweden. The first was the Stockholm Cup International, which had been classed at this level since 1994. The Open Sprint Championship was downgraded to Listed status in 2009.
