Sunday’s meeting at the Marsa Racetrack heralded the start of the Republic Day Championships for all classes on a long distance of 2640m. This programme consisted of ten races all heats from these different championships. Certainly the most important heat was open for class Premier trotters, a heat which was won by Veikko Hornline under the guidance of Julian Farrugia.

From the class Premier heat, six horses made it to the final stage. Thirteen horses took part in this race. It was Veikko Hornline (Julian Farrugia) which made the fastest start, opening a slight lead from Carmen Sund (Kurt Saliba) and Zwack (Eric Bezzina). Veikko Hornline managed to lead all the way and triumphed easily by a length and a half from Wiss Roadrunner (Mario Farrugia) and P.A. Surprise (Lorraine Cunningham). Italian mare Madam Di Poggio (Charles Camilleri) ended fourth. Zwack and Carmen Sund also qualified for the final stage. The winner clocked an average time of 1.17.7” per kilometer.

The other heats were reserved for class Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper trotters. Yesterday’s card included two heats for class Gold horses. In the first of these heats, Danish Obelix Molgard (Salvu Vella) dashed strongly from the outside midway through the final straight and secured its third win of the year from Wies Buitenzorg (Eric Bezzina) and Robin Du Suret (Cliferty Calleja). Pro Shop (Felix Casha) finished fourth.

There was a keen tussle between three horses in the final metres of the second class Gold heat. It was Beckham Bob (Jesmar Gafa’) which had to go all out in order to gain its second win of the year from Oolong (Noel Baldacchino) and Pissaro (Anton Cassar). Cowboy Party (Chris Cassar) followed home in that order.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held on Friday evening. The first race should start at 6.30pm.
