The 5th meeting of the year, consisting of eleven races all for trotters was held Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack. Certainly the two most important races were semi finals from the Assikura Championship for class Gold trotters on a short distance of 2140m and which were won by Quito De Neret and Prince Gaillard.

From the two class Gold semi finals ten horses qualified for the final stage. Quito De Neret (Noel Baldacchino) secured its second win in a row and in Malta in the first class Gold semi final. This French eleven year old trotter led all the way, was unchallenged for most of the distance and triumphed easily by two lengths from Record Du Mexique (Marvin Cauchi). Quel Homme (Rodney Gatt), Quel Imprevu (Carmelo Micallef) and Ofackevo (Julian Farrugia) followed home in that order.

In the second class Gold semi final, the early leader Starfirefinnfemfel (Julian Farrugia) started to slow down considerably around 200m from the finishing line. This trotter was eventually overtaken in the final straight by Prince Gaillard (Charles Camilleri) which gained its first win of the season by half length from Wies Buitenzorg (Eric Bezzina) and Cowboy Party (Chris Cassar). Quermes Rush (Anton Cassar) and Strafirefinnfemfel were the last two horses to make it for the final stage.

Sunday’s card included also two races for class Premier trotters. In the first class Premier race, Danish Nico Oland (Julian Farrugia) increased its pace along the final 700m and cruised to its first win of the year by a length from Madam Di Poggio (Noel Baldacchino). Zwack (Eric Bezzina) and Wiss Roadrunner (Mario Farrugia) ended respectively in third and fourth place. The winner clocked an average time of 1.15.7” per kilometer.

Absolut Spender (Mark Desira) had to go all the way in the last few metres of the second class Premier race in order to stave off the challenge of Quebir De L’Aube (Clint Vassallo). Absolut Spender registered its first win of the year with P.A. Surprise (Lorraine Cunningham) and Quiet Du Chene (Noel Baldacchino) obtaining also a positive place. Absolut Spender clocked an average time of 1.16.2” per kilometer.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held on Sunday. This will also consist of eleven trotting races with the first race starting at 1.15pm.

Fl-ewwel tigrija Premier hadu sehem hdax –il ziemel. Wara li fl-ewwel metri il-kmand alterna bejn Zwack (Eric Bezzina) u Nico Oland (Julian Farrugia) kien madwar dawra mit-tmiem li Nico Oland deher jiehu kontroll assolut ta’ din it-tigrija. L-ahhar 700m kienu ferm veloci ghal dan iz-ziemel Daniz li ttrijonfa b’tul mit-Taljana Madam Di Poggio (Noel Baldacchino). Zwack u Wiss Roadrunner (Mario Farrugia) kellhom ukoll sprint qawwi fl-ahhar metri u temmew warajhom f’dik l-ordni. Ir-rebbieh kellu medja ta’ 1.15.7” fil-kilometru.
