Okilabo and Ohime Mag won Sunday’s major events, the two Prix De Vincennes semi finals for class Premier trotters on a long distance of 2640m. These races formed part of the 48th meeting of the season, consisting of fourteen races all for trotters. Ten of these races were semi finals for French trotters and from the two class Premier semi finals, ten horses moved to the final stage.

Ten horses lined up for the first class Premier semi final. It was Nelson du Val (David Ellul) which made the fastest start, opening a length lead from newcomer Pacha De La Frette (Claudio Refalo) and Orgueil De Nganda (Noel Baldacchino). With 700m to go, Nelson du Val started to slow down and was overtaken by a number of horses. Midway through the final straight, Julian Farrugia put Okiliabo in front and this horse secured its fifth win of the year by five lengths from Orgueil De Nganda and Pacha De La Frette. Original Blue (Chris Cassar) and Nevaio Des Bordes (Marco Refalo) completed the top five order.

Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) took the lead after few metres from the official start of the second class Premier semi final. This French trotter never relinquished its position and chalked to its third win of the season by two lengths from Quelino d’Amour (Mario Fenech) and Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech). Orion du Vaumicel (Frencu Cassar) and Oltedo De Rieux (Charles Camilleri) followed home in that order.

Sunday’s card included also two semi finals from the Prix d’Enghien Championship for class Gold trotters. In the first class Gold semi final, Pepito Flash (Michael Ellul) took its first win in Malta after leading all the way. This French ten year old trotter finished first also after controlling in the final metres the challenge by Prince Gaillard, which was driven by Michael’s brother, David Ellul. Onyx Lucernais (Jason Cordina) and Orion du Vaumicel (Chris Vassallo) also qualified for the final stage.

Nitesco d’Antony (David Ellul) ran untroubled in the second class Gold final. This twelve year old trotter cruised to its second win of the year by half length from Rapide Du Matin (Charles Camilleri). Orage Du Pont (Julian Farrugia), Oolong (Noel Baldacchino) and Oeillet De Phens (Rodney Gatt) also obtained a good placing.
