The Race of the Centuries

Agency: Åkestam Holst


In this new campaign from Swedish horseracing organization ATG, the brand speculates on its origin. We get thrown back to the Swedish countryside in the late 19th century. People are gathering for the race of three antagonists. One of them is a young and poor peasant girl who takes a critical bet against a prominent rich man who is no stranger to dirty tricks. The thrill of the following race aims to mirror today's more sophisticated horseracing.

This professional campaign titled 'The Race of the Centuries' was published in Sweden in September, 2021. It was created for the brand: ATG, by ad agency: Åkestam Holst. This Film medium campaign is related to the Gambling industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 2 years ago by Senior Creative Director: Jesper Holst of Åkestam Holst.
