Driven by Carmelo Farrugia, Quartz De Vindecy won yesterday’s major event at the Marsa Racetrack. This was the Prix De Ile De France final for French trotters coming from class Premier on a long distance of 2640m. This formed part of the 57th and last meeting of the official season made up of ten races all for trotters.

Eleven horses lined up for the class Premier final. Before the official start, one of the favourites, Uhal Berven, was scratched by its owners. Sage De Gueriniere (Andrew Farrugia) set the early pace, opening a small lead from Quiet Du Chene (Mario Fenech) and Ricky Rock (Clint Vassallo). However, with 600m to go it was Quartz De Vindecy (Carmelo Farrugia) which started to up its pace from the outside and took the lead 400m to the finishing line. Quartz De Vindecy registered its second win of the season easily by two lengths from Tennis d’Anjou (Charles Degiorgio), Tino La Ravelle (Charles Camilleri) and Sage De Gueriniere. Quiet Du Chene finished in fifth place. The winning horse clocked an average time of 1.17.4” per kilometer.

Yesterday’s card included also four other finals for French trotters. These were the Prix De Normandie for class Gold trotters, the Prix De Cote d’Azur for class Silver, the Prix De Bretagne for class Bronze trotters and the Prix De Val De Loire final for class Copper trotters. Favourite Sephiro Flam (Clint Vassallo) had to go all the way in the final straight of the class Gold final to cruise to its sixth win of the year and its third in a row from Tango De La Manza (Brian Zammit). Tempo Boy (Michael Ellul), Quartz Pierji (Carmelo Farrugia) and Spirit Des Logos (Carmelo Agius) also obtained a positive place.

Another favourite, Simons Rose (Noel Baldacchino) produced a burst of pace midway through the final straight of the class Silver final to cross the finish line first ahead of Turbot De Renier (Ivan Bilocca) and Sillon Du Breuil (Rodney Gatt). Tsardiem (Julian Farrugia) and Ultime Des Racques (Clint Vassallo) claimed the other top five positions. For Simons Rose this was its sixth win in Malta and its fourth in a row.

In the class Bronze final, the early leader, Atout De Carriere (Michael Sultana), ran out of steam midway through the final straight. Eventually this six year old trotter was overtaken by Quid De Belle Vue (Charles Camilleri) which secured its fourth win of the year from Scoop Pellois (Mario Farrugia). Voila Dry (Ivan Bilocca) and Rikita Du Moulin (Jeffrey Said) followed behind in that order.

A keen duel between two trotters developed in the final straight of the class Copper final. It was Bengali De Larre (Noel Baldacchino) which sealed its second win in Malta from Akemi (Clive Gerada). Valentino De Monti (Nathaniel Barbara), Uranos (Tony Demanuele) and Baptiste Menuet (Mark Desira) finished respectively in third, fourth and fifth place.

The presentation of the trophies to the winners was carried out by Mr Edwin Borg MRC Chairman, Ms Emmanuelle Morvillers on behalf the French Association Le Trot and Mr Franco Degabriele, official of the betting company Izibet.

Madankollu minhabba l-fatt li kienu biss 139 il-membri fi hdan il-club (jew 15.7%) li marru jivvutaw, il-kunsill tal-club hass li jiddikjara din l-elezzjoni bhala wahda mhux valida. Hu mifhum li ghada, waqt laqgha tal-istess kunsill tal-club, se tittiehed id-decizjoni dwar x’se jigri f’din is-sitwazzjoni.
