The Chukkas Tazza l-Kbira Championship final topped the card in Sunday’s 18th meeting of the season at the Marsa racetrack. This final was open for class Premier trotters and was held on a long distance of 2640m. It was French Qui Sait, driven by Rodney Gatt, which managed to win this year’s edition of this important competition.

Eleven horses lined up for this class Premier event and before the start of these final these trotters took part in a parade which was led by French veteran Kakisis which won this prestigious cup four years ago. It should be noted that one of the finalists, French Pedro Vici, was scratched few hours before the start of the race. Quito De Neret (Michael Ellul) made the fastest start in the initial stages, opening a small lead from Vejby Boom (Carl Caruana) and Quetzal De Brix (Charles Camilleri).

But midway through the distance it was Cloria Victis (Charles Degiorgio) that shot into the lead. However, this Swedish trotter and winner of last year’s edition, was unable to keep up the pace and with 300m to go started to slow down. Cloria Victis was overtaken by the winner, Qui Sait (Rodney Gatt), which went on to finish first easily by a length and a half from Quorum Quick (Brian Zammit) and Quebir De L’Aube (Clint Vassallo). Vejby Boom (Carl Caruana) finished fourth.

At the end of this final, the Hon Chris Agius, Parliamentary Secretary for Sport presented the prestigious cup to Paul Cassar and Rodney Gatt, the owner and driver respectively of the winning horse. This presentation was carried out also in the presence of Mr Martin Arrigo, who was representing the sponsors. Qui Sait obtained its second win in Malta in an average time of 1.15.2” per kilometer.

The other races in Sunday’s card were reserved for class Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters. In the first class Gold race, the early leader, French Phenix De La Roque (Noel Baldacchino) started to slow down around 200m from the finishing line and was overtaken by Madrileno (Mario Fenech) which secured its third win in Malta by half length from Blizzard Ad (Frencu Cassar) and Paleo Des Cascades (Carl Caruana). Wies Buitenzorg (Eric Bezzina) finished fourth.

French Quel Imprevu, under the guidance of Paul Galea, gained its first win in Malta in the second class Gold race This trotter dashed strongly from the outside around 400m to go and took the lead in the final straight. Quel Imprevu triumphed from Midnight Passion (Eric Bezzina) and Cowboy Party (Chris Cassar). Premier Avril (Mario Fenech) ended fourth.
