It was French debutante Oleron Senonchois (Eugenio Bondin) which set the early pace, opening a small lead from Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech) and Mont Cenis Honey (Noel Baldacchino). With a lap to go, it was Ourasi Diams that raced to the front of the pack.

But this French trotter started to slow down around 500m from the end and was overtaken by Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) which took the lead and never relinquished this position. Ohime Mag claimed its first win in Malta easily by five lengths from Mars (Rodney Gatt) and Ouarsi Diams. Utah Hornline (Julian Farrugia) finished fourth. Ohime Mag clocked an average time of 1.14.4” per kilometer.

In the only class Gold race of the card, Skars Hanna (Jeffrey Said) dashed strongly from the outside midway through the final straight and registered its first win in Malta by half length from Natif de Fontaine (Kurt Saliba). Keeping Quality (Charles Magro) and Natif de Salvi (Redent Magro) claimed the other top four positions.

Sunday’s card included also two races for class Silver trotters. In the first class Silver race, Mint Condition (Jason Vassallo) took the lead with a lap to go and in the final metres this Swedish mare had to go all the way to stave off the challenge of Alf Eme (Joe Schembri).
