Sunday’s meeting at the Marsa Race Track heralded the start of three championships for French trotters with eight heats on a short distance of 2140m. These championships are once again being organized thanks to the financial support of the French association Societe’ du Cheval Francais. Apart from this, yesterday’s card included also a normal class Premier race on a long distance of 2640m. This race was won by TZ Zoogood driven by Clint Vassallo.

Fifteen horses lined up in the normal class Premier race of the day. Here Arnie Sensation (Carmelo Farrugia) stormed ahead of the field with a lap to go. But around 300m from the finishing line this Swedish trotter ran out of steam and was unable to keep up the pace. TX Zoogood started to dash from the outside and without any difficulties cruised to its first win in Malta from Sultan November (Shawn Portelli) and Poppes Fighter (Noel Baldacchino). Pro Shop (Rodney Gatt) followed behind. The winner clocked an average time of 1.16.9” per kilometer.

In the first heat from the Prix d’Enghien for class Gold trotters, favourite Pepone du Castelet (Charles Camilleri) increased its pace with a lap to go and chalked up to its third win of the season easily by three lenghts from Phenix De La Roque (Noel Baldacchino), Noble d’Ete (Raymond Clifton) and Niky du Donjon (Joe Vella). Natif De Salvi (Kurt Saliba) also qualified to the semi final stage after ending in fifth place.

There was a keen tussle between four horses in the final metres of the second class Gold heat. It was Nitesco d’Antony (David Ellul) which went all the way to register its first win of the year from debutante Prince Gaillard (Charles Camilleri). Podium (Julian Farrugia), L’As De Seuilly (Frans Tanti) and Paradis Du Lupin (Ramon Briffa) also progressed to the semi final stage.

French horses which are registered in class Silver lined up in three heats from the Prix de Cabourg. In the first heat, Quingen de Bussy confirmed that it is one of the most consistent horses of the season. Driven by Charles Camilleri, this trotter led all the way and secured its fourth win of the year from Panda Des Fleches (Chris Cassar), Ogor (Frencu Cassar) and Orgeat (Noel Baldacchino).

Onwards Star (Redent Magro) started to slow down when the horse staking part in the second Silver heat turned up for their final straight. Onwards Star was overtaken by newcomer Quozak Prior (Emmanuel Buhagiar) which secured its first win in Malta from Ouraki du Drochon (Frans Tanti), Oscar des Racques (Clint Vassallo) and Man Quick (Jason Cordina).

In third Silver heat, Obiscus Del Fa (Julian Farrugia) led all the way and obtained its second consecutive win on the trot by four lenghts from Que Je T’Aime Rush (Herman McKay) and newcomers Partisan De Bouere (Brian Hili) and Quick Et Rare (Jeffrey Pace).

Sunday afternoon, the Malta Racing Club remembered driver Michael Zammit. Zammit passed away during the week after being critically injured while watching a race during a programme organized recently at Hal Far.

Another programme at the Marsa Race Track will be held next Friday. The first race should start at 7pm.
