The highlights of Sunday’s 42nd meeting of the year, consisting of eight races, were two international races on a short distance of 2140m. In these races, eleven Maltese drivers challenged five amateur Dutch drivers from Alkmaar racetrack. All horses registered for these two events are owned by Maltese owners. These races were both won by Gozitan driver Julian Farrugia with Nerlo Villetot and Quio De Nappes.

As expected, in the first interational race, it was Swedish mare Rybo Juvel, driven by Dutch Paul Wals, which looked a serious contender in the early stages, opening a seven length lead from Fuoco Nel Fuoco (Willem Brouwer) and Caddie Drink (Charles Farrugia). But with 700m to go Rybo Juvel ran out of steam and was overtaken by Caddie Drink. However in the final straight, Caddie Drink also began to lose pace and in came Nerlo Villetot (Julian Farrugia) which notched to its second win of the year. Buckens Stjarna (Tony Tanti) and Kaki de Peyrahout (Peter Wisker) finished respectively in third and fourth place.

Quio De Nappes (Julian Farrugia) dashed strongly from the outside around 600m to the end of the second Malta-Alkmaar Amateur Race. This French nine year old trotter did not find any difficulty to obtain its second win in Malta easily by more than four lengths in front of three other horses driven by Maltese drivers. These were Pirate d’Urzy (Eugenio Bondin), Darco As (Mark Tanti) and Queen Streamline (Shawn Formosa).

At the end of these two races the winning drivers were presented with a horse blanket presented by P and M Farrugia Company Limited, Horse Agents, Transporters and Tack Suppliers.

Sunday’s card included also a normal class Premier race on a long distance of 2640m. The Bad Rock (Rodney Gatt) nosed ahead with around 1000m to go and this Swedish horse secured its first win in Malta from Nabab du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri). Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech) and TX Zoogood (Clint Vassallo) claimed the other top four positions.

French newcomer Oeiller De Phens (Rodney Gatt) led all the way in the class Gold race and finished first by a length from XRay Hornline (Donio Vella). In the three class Silver races, Ocean Brillouard (Noel Baldacchino) gained its second win of the year after taking the lead with a lap to go; Quartz Clayettois (Carl Caruana) registered its first win in Malta after increasing its speed midway through the final straight and in the last class Silver race, Sandrone (Jason Vassallo) surged ahead 100m from the end.
