The 53rd and the last meeting of the 2015 season was held on Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack. This programme consisted of nine races all for trotters on a mile distance. Certainly the most important race was that open for class Premier trotters and which was won by German Wee Catch Diamond under the guidance of Julian Farrugia.

Twelve horses lined up for the Class Premier race. It was Wee Catch Diamond (Julian Farrugia) which made the fastest start in this race, opening during the first metres a small lead from Vejby Boom (Carl Caruana) and Midnight Hall (Mario Fenech). With a lap to go Wee Catch Diamond was still going strong and managed to seal its sixth win of the year after managing to hold off the challenge of Vejby Boom in the final straight. Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) and Radjah Man (Felix Casha) ended respectively in third and fourth place. The winner clocked an average time of 1.15.3” per kilometer.

The remaining eight races in yesterday’s card were reserved for class Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper horses. In the first class Gold race, the early leader, Pronger (Claudio Refalo) ran out of steam when the front trotters turned for their final straight. In the final metres, this Swedish trotter was outsmarted by Italian Nashville Dancer (Andrew Farrugia) which secured its first win in Malta by half length from Helacs Falo (Julian Farrugia). Global Legislation (Clint Vassallo) finished fourth.

Opal Hall (Tony Mallia) dashed strongly from the inside midway through the final straight of the second class Gold race. Mallia’s trotter gained its first win of the season by half length from American Peel And Stick (Eugenio Bondin). Atomic Rapida (Paul Bonello) and Zizou Limburgia (Noel Baldacchino) followed home in that order.

In the third class Gold race, favourite The Candyman (Michael Sultana) cruised to its second win in a row and in Malta after leading all the way during the mile distance. Starfirefinnfemfel (Dylan Gatt), Radjah De Marzy (Patrick Spiteri) and Ramses Des Rouches (Redent Magro) also had a good performance and followed behind in that order.
