Ohime Mag and Mars won Sunday’s major events, the two races for class Premier trotters on a short distance of 2140m. These races formed part of the 18th meeting of the season made up of seven races all for trotters. All races were held on a Cup Day format.

Twelve horses lined up in the first class Premier race. It was Normand d’Oger (Cliferty Calleja) the fastest horse at first, opening a length lead from Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech) and Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar). With 200m to go, the early leader started to slow down and in the final straight was overtaken by Ohime Mag which gained its second win in Malta easily by a length from Sultan November (Shawn Portelli), Ofackevo (Julian Farrugia) and Ourasi Diams. The winner clocked an impressive average time of 1.14.6” per kilometer.

A keen tussle between five trotters developed in the final 100m of the second class Premier race. It was Mars (Rodney Gatt) which chalked up to its first win of the season from Okilaibo (Julian Farrugia) and Arnie Sensation (Jean Pierre Farrugia). Oran (Carmelo Farrugia) also obtained a good placing. Favourite Nabab du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri) was very unlucky in this race. This French trotter changes its pace in the middle of the final straight and was later disqualified. Mars also registered a good average time of 1.14.7” per kilometer.

In the only class Gold race of the card, Baron GL (Clint Vassallo) surrended the lead to Austrian Blizzard Ad (Frencu Cassar) with 100m from the finishing line. Blizzard Ad secured its first win in Malta from Pepone du Castelet (Charles Camilleri). Baron GL had to settle for third place with Onyx Lucernais (Jason Cordina) ending in fourth place.

Sunday’s card included also two races for class Silver trotters. Quo Vadis Phedo (Cliferty Calleja) confirmed that it is one of the most consistent horses of the season. This French trotter secured its fourth win of the season after increasing its pace 500m to the end. Quo Vadis Phedo finished first by half length from Nasdaq du Closet (Eugenio Zerafa), Cal Win (Shawn Portelli) and Ocean Brillouard (Noel Baldacchino).

In the second class Silver race, Cross Country FC (Salvu Vella) nosed ahead midway through the final straight and claimed its first win of the year from Newman (Kevin Sciberras). Norfolk de Gouerie (Cliferty Calleja) and Obi Wan Kenobi (George Attard) completed the top four order.

An extra pony race on a short distance of 700m was also included in yesterday’s programme. This was won by Caravaggio driven by Stephen Vassallo. Another meeting at the Marsa Race Track will be held next Sunday afternoon. The first race will start at 2.30pm.

L-aktar zewg tigrijiet importanti li saru l-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa kienu tnejn tal-klassi Premier fuq
distanza qasira ta’ 2140m. Dawn kienu jaghmlu parti mit-tmintax –il laqgha tal-istagun fuq seba’ tigrijiet kollha ghal zwiemel tat-trott fuq distanza qasira, kollha wkoll fuq forma ta’ gymkana. Iz-zewg tigrijiet Premier intrebhu minn Ohime Mag u Mars.

Sfortunata kienet it-tigrija ghall-favorit Nabab du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri) li kien gej minn success fil-finali tat-Tazza l-Kbira u li din id-darba biddel il-pass fl-ahhar metri. Mars kellu medja wkoll tajba ta’ 1.14.7” fil-kilometru.

L-ahhar 300m tal-uniku tigrija tal-klassi Gold kienu determinanti biex l-Awstrijakk Blizzard Ad (Frencu Cassar) jakkwista l-ewwel rebha fi gziritna. Blizzard Ad hareg rebbieh minn Pepone du Castelet (Charles Camilleri), Baron GL (Clint Vassallo) u Onyx Lucernais (Jason Cordina).
