As expected, the three Prix De Vincennes semi finals for French trotters coming from class Premier were the main attraction on Sunday’s card and these were won by Palazio Valterne, Pedro Vici and Oltedo De Rieux. These races formed part of the 42nd meeting of the season made up of ten races all semi finals from different championships for French horses. These competitions are being organized by the Malta Racing Club in collaboration with the French Association Le Trot.

From the three class Premier semi finals, twelve trotters qualified for the final stage. In the first of these semi finals, Palazio Valterne, under the guidance of David Ellul, secured its first win in Malta. This semi final was very exciting and the winner nosed ahead midway through the final straight. Palazio Valterne triumphed without any difficulty and by a length and a half from favourite Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo). Original Blue (Chris Cassar) and Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino) also moved to the final stage after claiming the other top four positions.

As expected, favourite Pedro Vici (Johan Axisa) lived up to expectations in the second class Premier semi final. This trotter led for most of the distance and past the post first easily by two lengths from Okilaibo (Julian Farrugia) and Quillian Joyeux (Andrew Farrugia). Power Of Love (Michael Ellul) followed home in that order. For Pedro Vici, which recently won also the 2014 edition of the President’s Cup Championship, this was its fourth win in a row and in Malta.

In the third class Premier heat, Oltedo De Rieux (Charles Camilleri) had to go all the way in the final 300 metres in order to stave off the challenge of Retroactif (Andrew Farrugia). Ourasi Diams (Redent Magro) and Quel Noir (Jesmar Gafa’) followed behind respectively in third and fourth place. This was Oltedo De Rieux’s second win of the season.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Sunday. The first race should start 1.15pm.

Palazio Valterne, Pedro Vici u Oltedo De Rieux jispikkaw fil-Premier

L-aktar tliet tigrijiet importanti li saru l-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa kienu semi finali mill-kompetizzjoni Prix De Vincennes ghal zwiemel tal-klassi Premier. Dawn intrebhu minn Palazio Valterne, Pedro Vici u Oltedo De Rieux u kienu jaghmlu parti mit-42 laqgha tas-sena fuq ghaxar tigrijiet kollha ghal zwiemel tat-trott. Dawn kienu kollha semi finali minn kampjonati differenti ghal zwiemel Francizi fuq distanza twila ta’ 2640m.

Mit-tliet semi finali Premier tnax –il ziemel ghaddew ghall-finali. Fl-ewwel minn dawn is-semi finali tal-oghla klassi Palazio Valterne, misjuq minn David Ellul, irregistra l-ewwel rebha fi xtutna. Dan halla kollox ghall-ahhar metri u ssorprenda lil kulhadd fl-ahhar mitejn metru b’attakk fuq in-naha ta’ barra u li waslu biex jaqsam il-linja finali l-ewwel facilment b’tul u nofs minn Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo) u Original Blue (Chris Cassar). Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino) kien l-ahhar zwiemel li ghadda ghall-ahhar fazi wara pjazzament fir-raba’ post.

Kif kien mistenni, il-favorit Pedro Vici ma falliex milli jirbah it-tieni semi finali tal-oghla klassi. Misjuq minn sidu stess Johan Axisa, dan mar quddiem wara ftit metri, qassam it-tigrija kif xtaq u ttrijonfa bla tbatija b’vantagg ta’ zewg tulijiet minn Okiliabo (Julian Farrugia), li fid-dritta finali wkoll kellu rimonta impressjonanti. Quillian Joyeaux (Andrew Farrugia) u Power Of Love (Michael Ellul) kienu l-ahhar zewg zwiemel li kkwalifikaw ghall-finali minn din it-tigrija. Ghal Pedro Vici, li ricentement rebah ukoll il-finali tat-Tazza tal-President, dan kien ir-raba’ success konsekuttiv.

Bidu tajjeb wara l-karozza tat-tluq ghin mhux ftit biex Oltedo De Rieux u f’idejn Charles Camilleri jiehu l-kmand sa mill-bidu nett tat-tigrija. Dan kien kontinwament quddiem u rnexxilu jakkwista t-tieni rebha stagonali wara li fid-dritta finali xejjen l-isfida ta’ Retroactif (Andrew Farrugia). Ourasi Diams (Redent Magro) u Quel Noir (Jesmar Gafa’) kienu l-ahhar zewg zwiemel li ghaddew ghall-finali ta’ dan il-kampjonat.
