Driven by Kurt Saliba, French seven year old trotter Uranium Des Arkads on Thursday triumphed in the 2015 edition of the Assikura Championship final for class Bronze trotters on a short distance of 2140m. This final formed part of the 11th Winter meeting made up of seven races all for trotters.

Nine horses took part in the class Bronze final. It was Sandrone (Jason Vassallo) which stormed ahead in the initial stages of the race. During the first metres, this horse opened a small lead from Obscur De Busset (Shawn Portelli) and Notre Joyeux (Chares Camilleri). However with 400m to go, Sandrone ran out of steam, started to slow down and was overtaken by Uranium Des Arkads (Kurt Saliba) which notched to its ninth win in a row and its third of the year by half length from Notre Joyeux. Reflexe De Crennes (Joseph Magro) and Willesden Hanover (Wayne Farrugia) followed behind in that order.

At the end of this final, Mr Andrew Grech on behalf of the sponsors, presented the winning trophy to Kurt Saliba the driver of the winning horse in the presence of Mr Fidel Dalli, MRC Official.

The other six races were open for class Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters and were held on a long distance of 3140m. In the only class Gold race of the day, favourite Madrileno made a strong dash from the outside 400m to the finishing line when driven by Mario Fenech. This Italian trotter took the lead midway through the final straight and secured its second win in a row and in Malta from Troy Boshoeve (Salvu Vella), Milord Barbes (Cliferty Calleja) and Quefi Des Caillons (David Ellul).
