The 25th meeting of the season, which was held Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack heralded the start of two other championships for class Premier trotters. These were the Prix De Vincennes for French trotters and the Sette Giugno Championship for other horses which were imported from other European countries. Yesterday’s programme consisted of nine races all for trotters.

From the three semi finals of the Prix De Vincennes Championship twelve horses qualified for the final stage. In the first semi final, the early leader, Printemps De Gaia (Johan Axisa) ran out of steam around 300m from the end. This trotter was reeled in by Quorum Quick (Brian Zammit) which had to go all out in the final metres in order to secure its first win in Malta from Quebir De L’Aube (Clint Vassallo). Ripsos De Fa (Ivan Bilocca) finished third from Oltedo De Rieux (Charles Camilleri).

Quesito d’Or (Frencu Cassar) registered its second win in a row in the second semi final for French trotters. Here favourite Qui Sait, under the guidance of Rodney Gatt, upped its pace with a lap to go and past the post first. However, after the race Qui Sait was disqualified by the racing stewards for hooking during the race and the win was awarded to Quesito D’Or, driven by Frencu Cassar. Palazio Valterne (David Ellul), Okilaibo (Julian Farrugia) and Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo) also had a good performance and ended respectively in second, third and fourth place.

There was a close finish between two trotters, Quartz De Chenu (Michael Ellul) and Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino), in the third and last semi final from the Prix De Vincennes Championship. The win was awarded to the former after that the photofinish was consulted by the racing stewards. Quiet Du Chene (Mario Fenech) and Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) also obtained a positive place. For Quartz De Chenu this was its first win in Malta.

On the other hand, from the two semi finals of the Sette Giugno Championship twelve other horses moved for the final race. Donald Duck Tooma (Charles Camilleri) cruised to its second win in Malta in the first semi final of this championship. This Swedish trotter took the lead when the horses turned around for their final straight and triumphed by more than ten lenghts from Zwack (Eric Bezzina) and Vejby Boom (Carl Caruana). Madrileno (Mario Fenech) and Swedish debutante Love Above (Salvu Vella) followed home in that order.

There was a keen tussle between three trotters in the final straight of the second semi final of the Sette Giugno Championship. Eventually it was Cloria Victis (Caillin Borg) which prevailed by half length from Shakira Trot (Nathaniel Barbara) and Striking Actions (George Attard). Zalgado Transs R (Nicholas Bonello), Mad Image (Rodney Gatt) and Ourselves (Noel Baldacchino) were the last horses to qualify for the final race of this competition. This was also Borg’s first win at the Marsa Racetrack.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held on Friday evening. The first race should start at 7pm.

Il-25 programm tal-istagun li sar il-Hadd fil-Marsa fuq disa’ tigrijiet tat-trott kien ferm interessanti. Inkluda fost l-ohrajn hames semi finali minn zewg kampjonati differenti ghal zwiemel tal-klassi Premier. Fuq distanza ta’ 2140m saru tliet tigrijiet mill-kampjonat Prix De Vincennes ghal zwiemel Francizi mill-oghla klassi u zewg semi finali mill-kampjonat Sette Giugno ghal zwiemel mhux Francizi u li wkoll huma registrati fl-oghla klassi.

Fl-ewwel wahda, Printemps De Gaia (Johan Axisa), li mexxa lill-kumplament taz-zwiemel ghal parti twila tad-distanza, ceda madwar 300m mit-tmiem. Kien f’dak il-mument li nqabez minn Quorum Quick (Brian Zammit) li ha l-ewwel rebha fi xtutna wara li fl-ahhar metri xejjen l-isfida ta’ Quebir De L’Aube (Clint Vassallo).

Rodney Gatt talab lill-favorit Qui Sait biex jibda jhaffef fil-pass dawra minn tmiem it-tieni semi finali tal-Prix De Vincennes. Qui Sait mar quddiem fid-dritta finali u qasam il-linja finali l-ewwel, izda aktar tard dan iz-ziemel gie skwalifikat mill-gurija biex ir-rebha nghatat lit-tieni pjazzat Quesito d’Or ta’ Frencu Cassar. Palazio Valterne (David Ellul), Okilaibo (Julian Farrugia) u Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo) temmew warajh fit-tieni, it-tielet u r-raba’ post rispettivament. Ghal Quesito d’Or din kienet it-tieni rebha konsekuttiva u f’Malta.

Ferm eccitanti kienet ukoll it-tielet u l-ahhar semi finali ghal dawn iz-zwiemel Francizi. Hawnhekk kien hemm tmiem incert bejn Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino) u Quartz De Chenu (Michael Ellul). Ir-rebha nghatat lil Quartz De Chenu wara konsultazzjoni mal-photofinish minn naha tal-gurija. Quiet Du Chene (Mario Fenech) u Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) kienu l-ahhar zewg zwiemel li ghaddew ghall-finali. Ghal Quartz De Chenu din kienet l-ewwel rebha f’Malta.
