The 45th meeting of the year, made up of eleven heats from three different championships for French trotters was held Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Race Track. The four most important races were heats from the Prix d’Enghien championship for class Gold trotters on a long distance of 2640m.

From these heats, twenty horses qualified for the semi final stage. In the first of these heats, Pitchpin Des Bois (Keith Grima) led all the way and secured its third win in Malta, easily by two lenghts from Prince Gaillard (Charles Camilleri). French newcomer Rapide Du Matin (David Ellul), Nacarat Cambell (Rodney Gatt) and Pepito Flash (Julian Farrugia) also qualified for the next stage.

Quel Noir (Clint Vassallo) ran three wide and stormed clear of the field around 600m from the end of the second class Gold heat. This French nine year old trotter cruised to its first win in Malta and triumphed by half length from Pan Des Couperies (Charles Camilleri) and Quid De La Muette (Mark Desira). Orage du Pont (Julian Farrugia) and Niky Du Donjon (Joe Vella) also progressed to the semi finals.

There was a keen tussle between two trotters, Onyx Lucernais (Jason Cordina) and Nitesco d’Antony (David Ellul), in the final straight of the third class Gold heat. It was the former which registered its third win of the year. Produit Fier (Emmanuel Fenech), Orion De Chapeau (Chris Vassallo) and Oolong (Noel Baldacchino) finished respectively in third, fourth and fifth place.

In the fourth class Gold heat, debutante Reader JYL (Charles Camilleri) upped its pace midway through the final straight and cruised to its first win in Malta from Olympien Major (Anthony Spagnol), Phenix De La Roque (Noel Baldacchino) and Nophenio de Lune (Charles Farrugia). Oeillet De Phens (Rodney Gatt) was the last horse to qualify for the semi final stage.

Sunday afternoon, Mr Angelo Cassar, owner of Swedish horse Orcas Bac was also presented with a commemorative plaque. During a meeting held on the 13th October, Orcas Bac had established a new national record on a short distance of 2140m, clocking an average time of 1.13.4” per kilometer.

Another meeting consisting of eight races was also held on Friday evening. This programme included two normal class Premier races on a short distance of 2140m. In the first class Premier race, Italian newcomer Madam Di Poggio (Julian Farrugia) started to slow down midway through the final straight and was overtaken by Absolut Spender (Mark Desira) which took its fourth win of the season. Orion Du Vaumicel (Frencu Cassar) and Ygor Of Pass (Tony Demanuele) followed behind.

Shakira Trot (Rodney Gatt) profited from the disqualification of Start Brodde (Christian Xerri) in the last few metres of the second class Premier race. Shakira Trot gained its third win of the year in front of Vanmaker Limburgia (Charles Camilleri), Oltedo de Rieux (Noel Baldacchino) and Sultan November (Shawn Portelli).
