Tarok | 2013
A chestnut stallion, Tarok was a legendary Danish trotting champion who captured the hearts of an entire population in the 1970s. He was bred in 1972 by the Laursen family and named after their favorite game of cards. The Laursens took up harness racing after they had replaced their last plow horses with a tractor. Here is a portrait of Denmark's most famous racehorse and the family behind it.
