The 41st meeting of the season which was held on Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack, heralded the start of the President’s Cup Championship. This championship is reserved for class Premier trotters and is being held on a short distance of 2140m.

From the four class Premier heats, twenty horses made it to the semifinal stage. In the first heat from the President’s Cup Championship, the early leader, Wee Catch Diamond (Julian Farrugia) ran out of steam midway through the final straight. This German nine year old trotter was overtaken by Cloria Victis (Caillin Borg) which secured its second win of the year by a length from Ripsos De Fa (Ivan Bilocca). Vasterbo Paradise (Claudio Refalo) and Palazio Valterne (David Ellul) also qualified for the next stage.

In the second class Premier heat, Carmelo Farrugia put favourite Quartz De Vindecy in front with a lap to go. Quartz De Vindecy gained its fourth win in a row and its fifth in Malta easily by four lenghts and a half from Ohime Mag (Julian Farrugia), Reve De L’Odon (Frank Portelli) and Zalgado Transs R (Nicholas Bonello). Orcas Bac (Rodney Gatt) followed home in that order. The winner clocked a good average time of 1.14.2” per kilometer.

Danish Nico Oland (Julian Farrugia) upped its pace around 500m to the finishing line of the third class Premier heat. Farrugia’s trotter cruised to its fourth win of the year and its third consecutive one easily by two lenghts from Mad Image (Noel Baldacchino) and Pouloud Keroc’H (Chris Vassallo). Shakira Trot (Nathaniel Barbara) and Gently Di Poggio (Brian Hili) also progressed to the semifinal stage.

In the fourth and last President’s Cup heat, Quorum Quick (Brian Zammit) led all the way during the 2140m distance and managed to seal its second win in Malta by a length from Quo Williams (Julian Farrugia). Quillian Joyeux (Andrew Farrugia) and French newcomers Rio De Lou (Marvin Cauchi) and Rainbow Dancer (Michael Ellul) were the last horses to make it to the next stage.

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held next Sunday and the first race should start at 1.30pm.
