Sarah Borg winning the Flat Race held on Sunday with Diamante Grande

The 6th meeting of the season, made up of eleven races was held Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Race Track. Ten of these races were open for trotters and were run on the mile distance while the other race was the P and M Farrugia Flat race on a long distance of 1750m. This race was won by Irish newcomer Diamante Grande, mounted by Sarah Borg.

Although only three horses took part in the flat race of the day, this race still was a very exciting one. It was English debutante Henderlik (Oliver Briffa) the fastest participant out of the gates, opening a small lead from Timolin (Ramon Grima). But midway through the final straight, both Henderlik and Timolin started to slow down and in came Diamante Grande which gained its first win in Malta under the guidance of Sarah Borg.

Global Hunt (Redent Magro) increased its pace 200m from the finishing line of the first class Gold race. This Swedish trotter went past the post first but was later disqualified. The win was awarded to Ironbar (Julian Farrugia) which secured its first win of the season from Charm Hammering (Gilbert Farrugia), Enjoy Kronos (Charles Camilleri) and Swedish newcomer Xray Hornline (Herman Mc Kay).

In the second class Gold race, L’Ideal de Fersan (Carl Caruana) took the lead with a lap to go and managed to secure its first win of the year after holding off the challenge of Kapro Wareco (Mario Fenech) in the final metres. Podium (Charles Camilleri) and Side Spin (Julian Farrugia) finished home in that order.

Carl Caruana won also the third class Gold race with Orage du Pont. This French trotter profited from the disqualification of Orion de Chapeau (Chris Vassallo) which changed its pace few metres from the finishing line. Blizzard Ad (Frencu Cassar), Oolong (Cliferty Calleja) and Baron GL (Clint Vassallo) followed behind.

Another programme, consisting of ten races will be held next Friday at the Marsa Race Track. This programme will include six heats from the Tazza l-Kbira Championship on a long distance of 2640m. The first race will start at 6.30pm.
