The 39th meeting of the year, made up of eight races all for trotters and on a short distance of 2140m was held on Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack. Seven of these races marked the start of three competitions for trotting horses registered in class Silver, Bronze and Copper. These competitions are being organised by the Malta Racing Club in collaboration with the international company Velj Wahslten Oj and Messrs Mario and Peter Farrugia.

Sunday’s card included two heats for class Silver trotters, four heats for class Bronze trotters and another heat for horses coming from class Copper. From the two class Silver heats, three horses qualified for the final stage. A keen duel between two Swedish trotters developed in the final metres of the first class Silver heat. It was favourite Royal In (Marco Debono) which managed to outsmart Tricoloren (Julian Farrugia) 100m from the finishing line of this race. Roc Magister (Kirsten Axisa) and French newcomer Stuart Des Noues (Frencu Cassar) ended respectively in third and fourth place. For Royal In this was its second consecutive win and its sixth of the season.

In the second heat from the same competition, French Scarface Ringeat (Charles Camilleri) dashed strongly from the outside when the front horses turned for their final straight. Scarface Ringeat grabbed its first win in Malta easily by five lengths from Suro Du Cornillet (Julian Farrugia). Reveal Champ Blanc (Tony Cauchi) and Peggy Di Azzurra (Silvio Schembri) followed home in that order.

In first class Bronze heat, Dutch Dreamed Victory (Jason Zahra) secured its second win in a row and its fifth of the year after upping its pace during the last 500 metres. Lord Indika (Clint Vassallo) led all the way during the 2140m distance of the second class Bronze heat. This Swedish nine year old trotter gained its third win in Malta. Voila Dry (Ivan Bilocca) chalked up to its sixth win of the season in the third heat from the same competition. Bilocca’s trotter increased its pace with 700m to go. In the fourth and last heat, Dutch Absolutelymeadow (Kurt Saliba) produced a strong burst in the final metres to seal its third consecutive win and its fifth of the year from Pericle (Jonathan Farrugia).

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

Id-39 programm tas-sena li gie organizzat il-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa kkonsista minn tmien tigrijiet kollha ghal zwiemel tat-trott fuq distanza qasira ta’ 2140m. Sebgha minn dawn it-tigrijiet taw il-bidu ghal tliet kompetizzjonijiet ghal zwiemel tal-klassijiet Silver, Bronze u Copper organizzati mill-Malta Racing Club bl-ghajnuna tal-kumpanija nternazzjonali Velj Wahlsten Oj li l-agenti taghhom f’Malta huma s-sinjuri Mario u Peter Farrugia.

Miz-zewg heats Silver, tliet zwiemel ghaddew ghall-finali. L-ahhar metri tal-ewwel heat minn din il-kompetizzjoni zviluppaw fi dwell kontinwu bejn zewg zwiemel li kienu misjuqa minn sewwieqa Ghawdxin, il-favorit Royal In (Marco Debono) u Tricoloren (Julian Farrugia). Finalment kien tal-ewwel li akkwista t-tieni rebha konsekuttiva u s-sitt wahda stagonali. Roc Magister (Kirsten Axisa) u d-debuttant Stuart Des Noues (Frencu Cassar) kellhom ukoll wirja tajba.

Attakk mibdi hekk kif iz-zwiemel qabdu l-ahhar kurva taghhom wassal lil Scarface Ringeat (Charles Camilleri) biex jiehu l-ewwel rebha tieghu fi xtutna fit-tieni heat mill-istess kompetizzjoni. Dan bla tbatija, b’vantagg ta’ hames tulijiet u quddiem Suro Du Cornillet (Julian Farrugia), Reveal Champ Blanc (Tony Cauchi) u Peggy Di Azzurra (Silvio Schembri).

Lord Indika (Clint Vassallo) kien kontinwament quddiem matul it-tieni heat mill-istess kompetizzjoni. Dan irnexxilu jiehu t-tielet rebha tieghu wara li kkontrolla l-avvanz ta’ Seigneur Du Dropt (Michael Sultana).

Minn naha l-ohra, l-ahhar 700m tat-tielet heat Bronze kienu determinanti ghal Voila Dry (Ivan Bilocca) biex jirregistra s-sitt rebha tas-sena. Fir-raba’ u l-ahhar heat, kif kien mistenni, l-Olandiz Absolutelymeadow (Kurt Saliba) ma naqasx milli jiehu l-hames rebha tas-sena u t-tielet wahda konsekuttiva wara li f’nofs id-dritta finali qabez lit-Taljan Pericle (Jonathan Farrugia).
