Eleven year old, Prieure won Sunday’s major event, the class Premier race on a short distance of 2140m. This race formed part of the 23rd meeting of the year made up of eleven races all for trotters. Charles Camilleri finished the best driver of the day with three wins.

Fourteen horses took part in the class Premier race. Lage (Marco Refalo) was the fastest horse in the early stages, opening a small lead from Isalus (Charles Degiorgio) and Swedish debutante Yanantin Boko (Darren Mizzi). However the early leader, Lage, ran out of steam and started to slow down around 200m from the finishing line. It was favourite Prieure which made a strong dash from the outside and in the final straight managed to beat the challenge of Yanantin Boko. Prieure obtained its second consecutive win and in Malta with Vanmaker Limburgia (Rodney Gatt) and Zalgado Transs R (Nicholas Bonello) also having a good result. Prieure clocked an impressive average time of 1.14” per kilometer.

Sunday’s card included also ten heats from three different championships for French trotters. These were heats from the Prix d’Enghien for class Gold trotters, the Prix de Cabourg for class Silver trotters and the Prix De Cagnes Sur Mer for class Bronze trotters. From the three class Gold heats twelve horses qualified for the semi final stage.

A keen tussle between two trotters developed in the final straight of the first class Gold heat. It was French newcomer Quito Soyer (Noel Baldacchino) which secured its first win in Malta by half length from Pepone Du Castelet (Charles Camilleri). Orage Du Pont (Charles Camilleri) and another debutante, Quel Imprevu (Carmelo Micallef) followed home in that order.

In the second class Gold heat, Quart De Cidre (Rodney Gatt) led almost all the way and was unchallenged especially during the last 500m. Quart De Cidre also registered its first win at the Marsa Racetrack easily by more than eight lenghts from Qadjar Turgot (Mark Mifsud). Quel Noir (Charles Degiorgio) and Pissaro (Clint Vassallo) qualified for the next stage after finishing respectively in third and fourth place.

Nagano Phedo (Mario Fenech) cruised to its first win of the year in the third and last class Gold heat. This
French thirteen year old trotter nosed ahead when the horses turned for their final straight Nagano Phedo triumphed by a length from newcomer Qualisman (Charles Camilleri). Oeillet De Phens (Rodney Gatt) and Quattro Du Gite (Noel Baldacchino) completed the top four order.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Sunday. The first race should start at 1.45pm.
