Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) winning the class Premier on Sunday (Photo In-Nazzjon – Media.Link Communications).

Ohime Mag, the twelve year old trotter, under the guidance of one of its owners Ronald Cassar, won the major event on the card Sunday afternoon when the sixth meeting of the season was held at the Marsa Race Track. This was a class Premier race on a short distance of 2140m. Sunday’s programme consisted of eleven races all for trotters with Charles Camilleri ending as the best driver with three wins.

Thirteen horses lined up for the class Premier race. It was Swedish newcomer Chiara Sisu (Melvin Farrugia) the fastest horse in the early stages, opening a length lead from Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) and Vanmaker Limburgia (Rodney Gatt). Chiara Sisu was unchallenged for most of the distance, however around 400m from the end this mare ran out of steam and in came Ohime Mag. The latter registered its first win of the season from Vanmaker Limburgia. Orgueil De Nganda (Noel Baldacchino) and Livi Cantona (Julian Farrugia) also obtained a positive place.

Six of Sunday’s races also heralded the start of the Assikura Championship for class Bronze trotters. From these heats, 24 horses qualified for the semi final stage. In the first of these heats, Narcus du Roc (Noel Baldacchino) started to slow down around 300m from the end and was overtaken by favourite Kaki De Peyrahout (Charles Farrugia) which secured its second win in a row from Pema (Charles Farrugia).

In the second heat, Queops De Retz (Emmanuel Fenech) dashed strongly from the outside with 600m to go and gained its first win of the year easily by a length and a half from Take Out Blue (Paul Galea). Schejken Bill (Charles Farrurgia) had to go all the way in the last few metres of the third class Bronze heat. This Swedish sixteen year old veteran trotter managed to stave off the challenge of Sjohultets Tigra (Rodney Gatt) and Napolitano Sun (David Ellul) which both were declared second after that the photofinish was consulted by the stewards.

In the fourth heat, Obscur De Busset (Shawn Portelli) led all the way and triumphed by more than two lengths from Qumran De La Motte (Frencu Cassar). For Obscur de Busset this was also its first win of the season. Similar was the fifth heat from the same championship with Julian Port (Rodney Gatt) also leading from start to finish. Pancho Villa (Andrew Farrugia) finished behind in second place. In the last heat, Quingen De Bussy (Brian Hili) seized the lead to Zeta Jones A (Charles Camilleri) midway through the final straight. Lime Casted (Kerstin Gialanze’) and Jens (Alex Magro) were the last two trotters that qualified for the semi final stage. For Camilleri this was his third win on the card.

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

Ohime Mag fi klassi ghalih fil-Premier

Taht il-gwida ta’ wiehed mis-sidien tieghu Ronald Cassar, Ohime Mag rebah l-aktar tigrija mistennija li saret il-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa. Din kienet riservata ghal zwiemel tal-klassi Premier fuq distanza qasira ta’ 2140m u kienet taghmel parti mis-sitt laqgha tas-sena fuq hdax –il tigrija tat-trott. Charles Camilleri temm l-ahjar sewwieq tal-programm bi tliet rebhiet.

Tlettax kienu z-zwiemel li grew fl-aktar tigrija importanti. Id-debba debuttanta Zvediza Chiara Sisu (Melvin Farrugia) kienet l-aktar veloci wara li nghata l-bidu ufficjali. Matul l-ewwel metri din id-debba fethet vantagg ta’ tul u nofs minn Ohime Mag u Vanmaker Limburgia (Rodney Gatt). Chiara Sisu baqghet izzomm il-kmand ghal parti twila tad-distanza, ghalkemm it-tigrija hadet svolta ohra fl-matul l-ahhar 400m taghha.

Kien f’dak il-hin li Chiara Sisu bdiet tnaqqas mill-pass u kien f’dak il-mument ukoll li Cassar talab lil Ohime Mag biex imur quddiem. B’hekk dan ittrijonfa facilment minn Vanmaker Limburgia. Orgueil De Nganda (Noel Baldacchino) u Livi Cantona (Julian Farrugia) ukoll kellhom prestazzjoni tajba meta temmew warajhom f’dik l-ordni.

Sitta mit-tigrijiet li saru l-Hadd kienu heats u taw il-bidu ghall-kampjonat gdid Assikura tal-klassi Bronze. Minn dawn il-heats 24 ziemel ghaddew ghas-semi finali. Fl-ewwel heat, Narcus du Roc (Noel Baldacchino) naqqas mill-giri madwar 300m mit-tmiem u fost l-ohrajn inqabez mill-kwotat Kaki De Peyrahout (Charles Camilleri) li ha t-tieni rebha nfila minn Pema (Charles Farrugia).

Attakk tlieta fuq in-naha ta’ barra u mibdi 600m mit-tmiem tat-tieni heat Bronze wassal lil Queops De Retz (Emmanuel Fenech) biex jiehu t-tieni rebha tieghu f’Malta minn Take Out Blue (Paul Galea). Taqtiegha bejn erba’ zwiemel fid-dritta finali tat-tielet heat Bronze waslet lill-veteran ta’ sittax –il sena, l-outsider Schejken Bill (Charles Farrugia) biex jirritorna ghar-rebh wara nuqqas ta’ madwar sena u tliet xhur. Sjohultets Tigra (Rodney Gatt) u Napolitano Sun (David Ellul) dahlu flimkien fit-tieni post.

Fir-raba’ heat, Obscur de Busset (Shawn Portelli) kien il-hin kollu quddiem. Dan iz-ziemel ma naqas milli jaqsam il-linja finali l-ewwel b’aktar minn zewg tulijiet u nofs minn Qumran De La Motte (Frencu Cassar). Simili kienet il-hames heat mill-istess kampjonat fejn bidu attraenti wara l-karozza tat-tluq ghin lil Julian Port (Rodney Gatt) biex jokkupa l-ewwel pozizzjoni tul id-distanza kollha. Dan ma sabx diffikulta’ fl-ahhar metri jikkontrolla l-attakk ta’ Pancho Villa (Andrew Farrugia).

Fl-ahhar heat waslet ukoll it-tielet rebha tal-gurnata ghal Charles Camilleri. Hawnhekk Quingen de Bussy (Brian Hili), li kien ghal hafna metri quddiem ma seta’ jaghmel xejn fl-ahhar metri quddiem il-qawwa ta’ Zeta Jones A misjuqa mill-istess Camilleri.
