Nine trotters took part in the class Copper final. As expected, it was favourite Bolide Boy Honey (Jesmar Gafa’) that set the early pace after few metres from the official start of the race. During the first 500 metres, this horse opened a small lead from High Handed (Tony Demanuele) and Meadow Dancer (Ludvic Ghigo). Bolide Boy Honey was unchallenged for almost all the distance, managed to lead all the way and to pass the finishing post first easily by three lengths and a half from High Handed and Umbra Hornline (Charles Camilleri). Meadow Dancer finished fourth. At the end of this race, Mr Ivan Carabott, Club official and Fr Mario Attard presented the winning shield and the trophy to Jesmar Gafa’ the driver and one of the owners of the winning horse. For Bolide Boy Honey this was its third win in a row.

In the only class Premier race on the card, organized in collaboration with Mapfre insurance, the early leader, Danish Sensei (Noel Baldacchino) ran out of steam around 300m from the finishing line of the race. In the final straight, Sensei was overtaken by Italian Overtaker By Sib (Marco Refalo) which cruised to its fourth win of the year and in Malta from Nelson Derm (Anton Pace). Rocco Darche (Ludvic Ghigo) finished in fourth place. The winner clocked an average time of 1.14.9” per kilometer.

Yesterday’s card included also three races for class Silver trotters. French Tonus Du Logis gained its first win in Malta in the first class Silver race when driven by Christian Xerri. This trotter dashed strongly from the outside with 400 metres to go and triumphed easily by more than ten lenghts from Tirana C.N. (Mario Farrugia) and Rex Rose (Julian Farrugia). Peggy Di Azzurra (Rodney Gatt) followed behind in that order.

A keen duel between two trotters, Quent De Combourg (Noel Baldacchino) and Tricoloren (Julian Farrugia), developed
in the final straight of the second class Silver race. The win was awarded to the former after that the photo finish was consulted by the racing stewards. Carnegie Hall (Anthony Cassar) and Voila Dry (Ivan Bilocca) ended respectively in third and fourth place. For Quent De Combourg this was its second win of the season.

In the third class Silver race, Danish mare Ratatoui (Jesmar Gafa’) nosed ahead during the last 700m. Gafa’s mare claimed its first win of the season by half length from Rapide Du Matin (Charles Camilleri) and Turbot De Renier (Ivan Bilocca0. Saphir Du Fournier (Omar Cauchi) ended in fourth place.
