French eleven year old, Pout De Quelaines won Sunday’s major event, the St Francis Championship final for class Copper trotters on a short distance of 2140m. This final formed part of the 21st meeting of the season made up of eleven races all for trotters.

Twelve horses took part in the class Copper final. It was The Womanizer (Rodney Gatt) the fastest horse in the early stages. During the first metres this Swedish trotter opened a half length lead from Boshoevens Emily (Charles Camilleri) and Esmeralda Run (Redent Magro). The Womanizer was unchallenged for most of the distance, however midway through the final straight this trotter ran out of steam and got outsmarted by Pout De Quelaines (Kerstin Galea) which registered its second win in a row from Ocean Gede (Mario Fenech). Icare De Jemma (Tony Demanuele) completed the top four order.

After the final, Fr Mario Attard OFM Cap and Dr Matthew Brincat, MRC Chairman presented the winning shield and driver to David and Kerstin Galea owner and driver of the winning horse.

Sunday’s card included also a class Premier race on a short distance. In this race there was a close finish
between Midnight Passion (Eric Bezzina) and Zandina Boshoeve (Rodney Gatt) which sprinted neck and neck in the final straight. The win was awarded by the racing stewards to Zandina Boshoeve after that the photofinish was consulted. Ego Sanna (David Ellul) and Original Blue (Chris Cassar) ended respectively in third and fourth place. For Zandina Boshoeve, this was its third win in a row and its fourth of the year.

In the first class Gold race, P.A. Surprise (Lorraine Cunningham) dashed strongly from the outside around 400m from the finishing line and took the lead midway through the final straight. P.A Surprise secured its first win of the season from Nubi Lens (Cliferty Calleja), New Star DK (Kerstin Galea) and Made In Hoff (Jesmar Gafa’).

Lost Photo (Herman McKay) surged ahead around 300m from the finishing line of the second class Gold race. This Italian nine year old trotter cruised to its second win of the season easily by more than two lenghts from Count Of Life (Claudio Refalo) and Versace Boko (Warren Spiteri). Razor Shadow (Nathaniel Barbara) claimed the other top four positions.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Friday. The programme will include two heats from an international ladies championship on a short distance of 2140m. The first race should start at 6.30pm.
