True Q and Cheeky Jack won Sunday’s major events at the Marsa Race Track. These were a class Premier trotting race and a flat race, both forming part of the 38th meeting of the season. The programme consisted of eleven races.

Six horses took part in the only flat race of the day. It was Gold As Good (Demis Zammit) the first horse out of the gates, opening a length lead from Diamante Grande (Sarah Borg) and Darielli (Charles Pace). But with 300m to go, Gold As Good started to slow down and was overtaken by American Cheeky Jack (Charles Vella) which secured its second win of the year easily by more than four lenghts from Gold As Good. Diamante Grande (Sarah Borg) and Henderlik (Matthew Mallia) ended respectively in third and fourth place.

In the class Premier race of the programme, sixteen horses lined up after the autostart. Oran (Carmelo Farrugia) took the lead a lap from home, but around 300m from the finishing line this French eleven year old trotter ran out of steam. It was True Q (Shawn Portelli) which went in front and in the final metres had to go all out in order to obtain its first win of the season from Nabab du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri). Oltedo de Rieux (Noel Baldacchino) and Arnie Sensation (Gilbert Farrugia) also obtained a positive place. The winner clocked an average time of 1.15.9” per kilometer.

There was a keen tussle between two horses in the final straight of the only class Gold race on the card. It was Swedish Veikko Hornline (Carl Caruana) which gained its first win of the year by half length from Skars Hanna (Jeffrey Said). Nitesco d’Antony (David Ellul) and Celebrity Photo (Marvin Cauchi) followed home in that order.

Sunday’s card included also two races for class Silver A trotters. In the first of these races, Dacoit (Ludvic Ghigo) dashed strongly from the inside midway through the final straight and cruised to its third win of the season from Mint Condition (Jason Vassallo) and Manuel Jet (Carl Caruana). Quatre de Coeur (John M Seychell) ended fourth.

In the second class Silver A race, Mind Your Head (Noel Baldacchino) upped its pace from the outside around 200m to go and this Swedish horse registered its first win in Malta from Paleo de la Dives (Sam Cassar). Lacoste IT (Eric Bezzina) and Quarborandum (Philip Calleja) ended respectively in third and fourth place.

Another meeting at the Marsa Race Track will be held next Sunday. The first race should start at 1.30pm.

True Q u Cheeky Jack jirbhu t-tigrijiet ewlenin

Id-39 programm tal-istagun li sar il-Hadd fil-korsa tal-Marsa kien wiehed maratona ta’ hdax –il tigrija. Ghaxra minn dawn kienu riservati ghal zwiemel tat-trott u wahda biss kienet tal-galopp. Minn dawn it-tigrijiet, l-aktar importanti kienu dik tat-trott tal-oghla klassi Premier fuq distanza qasira ta’ 2140m u t-tigrija tal-galopp fuq 1250m. Dawn intrebhu minn True Q u Cheeky Jack rispettivament.

Sittax kienu z-zwiemel li grew fit-tigrija tal-oghla klassi Premier. Kien Oran (Carmelo Farrugia) li ha l-kmand f’nofs id-distanza. Izda madwar 400m mill-linja finali dan iz-ziemel deher inaqqas xi ftit mill-giri tieghu. Dlonk wasal l-avvanz ta’ True Q (Shawn Portelli) li mar quddiem u ghalkemm b’certu tbatija, xorta irnexxilu jaqsam il-linja finali l-ewwel bi ftit minn Nabab du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri). Oltedo de Rieux (Noel Baldacchino) u Arnie Sensation (Gilbert Farrugia) wkoll kellhom wirja pozittiva. Intant l-ewwel rebha tas-sena ta’ True Q waslet f’medja ta’ 1.15.9” fil-kilometru.

Mill-kumplament tat-tigrijiet tat-trott numru ta’ zwiemel ikkwalifikaw ghal sensiela ta’ finali ta’ Condition Races li qieghed jigu organizzati bl-ghajnuna ta’ Cassar Petroleum. It-tigrija tal-klassi Gold kienet ikkaratterizzata minn dwell eccitanti fid-dritta finali bejn Veikko Hornline (Carl Caruana), li kien ghal hafna hin quddiem u Skars Hanna (Jeffrey Said), li wettqet attakk tajjeb fuq in-naha ta’ barra matul l-ahhar 500m. Kien Veikko Hornline li xejjen l-isfida ta’ Skars Hanna biex ha l-ewwel rebha tas-sena b’Nitesco d’Antony (David Ellul) u Celebrity Photo (Marvin Cauchi) jidhlu fit-tielet u r-raba’ post rispettivament.

Fl-ewwel minn zewg tigrijiet riservati ghal zwiemel mill-klassi Silver A, Dacoit (Ludvic Ghigo) issorprenda lil kulhadd wara li fid-dritta finali sab l-ispazju necessarju biex jattakka minn naha ta’ gewwa. B’hekk Dacoit irregistra t-tielet rebha stagonali.

Anki fit-tieni wahda, Mind Your Head (Noel Baldacchino) halla kollox ghall-ahhar metri biex akkwista l-ewwel rebha fi xtutna quddiem Paleo de la Dives (Sam Cassar). Lacoste IT (Eric Bezzina) u Quarborandum (Philip Calleja) kellhom ukoll pjazzament tajjeb.

Fl-uniku tigrija tal-galopp, Gold As Good (Demis Zammit) kien l-aktar ziemel veloci mill-gagga tat-tluq. Matul l-ewwel metri, dan fetah vantagg zghir minn Diamante Grande (Sarah Borg) u Darielli (Charles Pace). Izda madwar 300m mit-tmiem, Gold As Good beda jnaqqas mill-giri u fid-dritta finali nqabez minn Cheeky Jack li ha t-tieni rebha tas-sena b’distakk ta’ aktar minn erba’ tulijiet. Diamante Grande (Sarah Borg) u Henderlik (Matthew Mallia) temmew warajhom f’dik l-ordni.
