As expected, the Prix De Vincennes final for class Premier French trotters was the main attraction in Sunday’s 29th meeting of the year held at the Marsa Race track. This final was won by favourite Prieure driven by Charles Camilleri. Yesterday’s card included also four other finals for French trotters.

The class Premier final was contested by ten trotters. It was Prieure (Charles Camilleri) which stormed ahead in the early stages, opening a slight lead from Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino) and Ourasi Diams (Emmanuel Fenech). Although Prieure was always in front during most of the distance, this French eleven year old trotter had to go all the way in the final straight to stave off the challenge of Pat De Fontaine. Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo) and Ourasi Diams ended respectively in third and fourth place.

The winner obtained its fourth win in a row in an average time of 1.14.3” per kilometer. At the end of this final, Emmanuelle Morvillers, on behalf of the French association Le Trot, presented the prestigious trophy to Julian Bezzina and Joseph Borg and to Charles Camilleri owners and driver respectively of the winning horse.

Oeillet De Phens (Rodney Gatt) produced a strong burst in the final metres of the Prix d’Enghien final for class Gold trotters in order to notch up its first win for 2014. Quito Soyer (Noel Baldacchino) and Quel Noir (Charles Degiorgio) followed behind respectively in second and third place. In the Prix De Cabourg final for class Silver trotters, there was a close finish between Panda Des Fleches (Chris Cassar) and Quazoumax (Andrew Farrugia) which sprinted neck and neck in the final metres. The photo finish had to determine the winner and victory went to Panda Des Fleches by a whisker.

There was a keen tussle between Pacha De Sassy (Omar Cauchi) and Roff Gy (Noel Baldacchino) in the final metres of the Prix De Cagnes Sur Mer final for class Bronze trotters. It was the former which registered its fourth win in a row and its fifth of the season. In the Prix De Caen final for class Copper trotters, Uranium Des Arkads (Kurt Saliba) secured its fourth win of the year and its second one in a row after increasing its speed with a lap to go. French eighteen year old veteran Icare De Jemma (Tony Demanuele) followed behind in second place.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Friday evening. The first race should start at 6.30pm.
