It was Julian Port (Rodney Gatt) which stormed ahead in the initial metres and during the first metres this trotter opened a half length lead from Obscur De Busset (Shawn Portelli) and Willesden Hanover (Wayne Farrugia). Julian Port was unchallenged for most of the distance and in the final straight also went on to beat easily the challenge of Take Out Blue (Paul Galea). Quero Des Erablais (Frencu Cassar) and Willesden Hanover finished respectively in third and fourth place.

After this final, Mr Andrew Grech, on behalf of the sponsors, presented the winning trophy to Rodney Gatt and Emanuel Galea, the driver and owner respectively of the winning horse.

Sunday’s card included also four semi final races from the Ray Auto Dealer Challenge Cup for class Silver trotters also on a short distance of 2140m and a normal class Premier race on a long distance of 3140m. From the four class Silver semi finals twelve horses qualified for the final stage. There was a close tussle between four horses in the final straight of the first class Silver semi final. It was Swedish Command Coger (Carmelo Farrugia) which secured its first win of the season by half length from Ollico Pellois (Noel Baldacchino).

In the second semi final, favourite Quioco Dry (Joseph Galea) led all the way and took its second win in a row easily by a length and a half from Roma M. The latter was driven by Joseph’s brother, Paul Galea. Ringo Flower (Charles Camilleri) started to slow down midway through the final straight of the third class Silver semi final. This French nine year old was overtaken by another French trotter, Quid De La Muette (Noel Baldacchino) which cruised to its second consecutive win and of the season.

Another horse which also secured its second win in a row was Partner Blue which triumphed in the fourth and last Silver semi final. Under the guidance of Christian Xerri, Partner Blue produced a strong burst in the final metres of this race and finished first from Quatre De Coeur (Charles Camilleri).

In the only class Premier race on the card, there was a close finish between French newcomer Pouloud Keroc’h (Chris Vassallo) and Nabab Du Chatelet (Charles Camilleri) which sprinted together in the final metres.
