Kimberley Downs and Fire won Sunday’s two major races at the Marsa Race Track. These were a flat race on a long distance of 2250m and a class Premier trotters race on a long distance of 3140m. Both races formed part of the 15th meeting of the year made up of eight races.

Seven horses lined up in the only class flat race of the day. It was Ollie Fliptrik (Sarah Borg) the fastest horse out of the gates, opening a length lead from Irish debutante Alto Monte, mounted by Sicilian Antonio Pappalardo and Friarscourt (Ramon Grima). But with 300m to go Ollie Fliptrik started to slow down and was overtaken by another American horse,

Kimberley Downs (Michael Sultana), which gained its first win of the year easily by a length. Cheeky Jack (Demis Zammit) and Alto Monte also obtained a good placing. It should be noted that in the past months Kimberley Downs was running in France and Belgium, obtaining also a number of positive results in various races.

Fire (Marco Refalo) gained its third win on the trot in the class Premier race. This Swedish ten year old upped its pace with 500m to go and won easily by ten lengths from Oran (Carmelo Farrugia) and Poppes Fighter (Charles Camilleri). Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech) finished fourth. Disappointing was this race for Danish Mars (Rodney Gatt). This horse changed its pace midway through the final straight and when it was sprinting neck and neck with the winning horse. Fire clocked an average time of 1.16.6” per kilometer.

In the only class Gold race of the programme, French favourite Nobleness Dubrio (Noel Baldacchino) stormed ahead of the field with a lap to go. Nobleness Dubrio chalked to its second win in a row by half length from Max Galbe (Redent Magro) and Troubadour S (Charles Farrugia). Lucky des Brisants (Christian Xerri) followed behind.

Sunday’s card included also three races for class Silver trotters. In the first class Silver race, Ouraki du Drochon (Frans Tanti) increased its pace around 300m from the end and although this French trotter past the post first, eventually it was disqualified. The win was awarded to Obiscus del Fa (Julian Farrugia) which secured its first win of the year from Pile Ou Face (Joe Schembri), Ostheo d’Havetot (Andrew Farrugia) and Milano du Gite (Alex Cortis).

Finnish Manuel Jet made a strong dash from the outside, 600m to the end of the second class Silver race. Driven by Carl Caruana, this eleven year old trotter went on to record its first win of the season by a length from Nasdaq du Closet (Eugenio Zerafa), Nobel Pasmarick (Noel Baldacchino) and Quo Vadis Phedo (Charles Camilleri).

In the third class Silver race, French mare Que Je T’Aime Rush (Herman McKay) profited from the disqualification of Quipo du Tronquay (Noel Baldacchino) which crossed the finish line first. Quartz du Lupin (Jeffrey Said), Lutan Villetot (Eman Attard) and French debutante Queops de Retz (Charles Farrugia) ended respectively in second, third and fourth place.

Another meeting, consisting of eight races, was held on Friday evening at the Marsa Race Track. The most important event was a class Premier event also on a long distance of 3140m. Here, German Sultan November (Shawn Portelli) increased its speed with 400m to go and secured its second win of the season by a length from Simb Mark (Noel Baldacchino) and Mark de Chamant (Michael Seychell). Skip Dimanche (Anthony Debono) finished fourth.

The next meeting at the Marsa Race Track will be held on Sunday. The first race will start at 2pm.
