The 2nd Spring meeting, made up of eight races, was held on Easter Sunday, at the Marsa Race Track. This was an entertaining meeting and included four interesting finals. These were the Chukkas Cup final for flat horses on a long distance of 1750m and three Condition Race finals for classes Gold and Silver trotters on a short distance of 2140m.

Four horses took part in the Chukkas Cup Final. It was Privileged Boy and mounted by Oliver Briffa the first horse out of the gates, opening a length lead from Timolin (Ramon Grima) and Henderlik (Demis Zammit). Around 600m from the end, Privileged Boy ran out of steam and in came Timolin which took its second win in a row from Henderlik.

Pepone du Castelet (Charles Camilleri) upped its pace from the outside 600m to the end of the Condition Race final for class Gold trotters. This horse notched its second win in Malta easily by a length and a half from Charm Hammering (Gilbert Farrugia) and Skars Hanna (Jeffrey Said). Orage du Pont (Noel Baldacchino) ended fourth.

In the first Condition Race final for class Silver trotters, Orio de Marancourt (Frencu Cassar) dashed strongly from the outside midway through the final straight in order to secure its first win of the year by half length from Ostheo d’Havetot (Andrew Farrugia) and Cross Country FC (Salvu Vella). Favourite Wonderofyou (Julian Farrugia) finished fourth.

Favourite Octobre En Fete (Cliferty Calleja) increased its pace with a lap to go in the second class Silver final. This French trotter managed to hold off the challenge of Pilote de Nganda (James Carabott) in the final metres and obtained its third consecutive win on the trot. Okir de Leau (Brian Hili) and Ouragan de Crouay (Larson Mifsud) also obtained a good placing.

MRC Chairman, Dr Matthew Brincat also presented a memento to all the drivers and owners whose horses triumphed in the finals held yesterday.

Sunday’s card included also a class Premier race on a long distance of 2640m. Mont Cenis Honey (Noel Baldacchino) started to slow down around 500m from the end. This horse was overtaken by Fire driven by Gozitan Marco Refalo which gained its second win of the year by a length from Label Chouan (David Ellul). Shakira Trot (Charles Camilleri) and Normand d’Oger (Cliferty Calleja) followed behind in that order.

Another programme at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Friday evening. The programme will include two Condition Race Finals with the first race of the day will start at 6.30pm.
