Italian eight year old debutante, Overtaker By Sib, won Sunday’s major event at the Marsa Racetrack. This race was reserved for class Premier trotters on a short distance of 2140m and formed part of the 2nd meeting of the season made up of nine races all for trotters.

Sixteen horses took part in the major race on the card. It was Overtaker By Sib, driven by one of its owners, Gozitan Marco Refalo, the fastest trotter at first, opening a small lead from Radjah Man (Felix Casha) and Swedish newcomer Jaguar Ruda (Anton Cassar). With a lap to go, Overtaker By Sib was still going strong and ran unimpeded till the end of the race. This Italian trotter notched to its first win in Malta easily by two lenghts and a half from Pedro Vici (Johan Axisa) and Rainbow Dancer (Michael Ellul). Another French debutante, Rickshow (Charles Camilleri), ended in fourth place. Overtaker By Sib clocked an average time of 1.15.1” per kilometer.

The other races in Sunday’s programme were open for class Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper trotters. In the first class Gold race, Udon d’Occagnes (Tony Demanuele) took the lead with 700 metres to go. However this French eight year old trotter changed its pace and was disqualified when the front horses started to face their final curve. It was Cool Caviar (Julian Farrugia) which stormed ahead in the final straight and triumphed by a length and a half from Solide Du Jayle (Omar Cauchi) and Rubis Du Chanoy (Noel Baldacchino). Pile Ou Face (Joe Schembri) finished fourth.

A keen duel between Swedish Brigadoon (Rodney Gatt) and Danish Sensei (Noel Baldacchino) developed in the final straight of the second class Gold race. It was the former which gained its second win in a row and in Malta by only few metres. Midnight Hall (Mario Fenech) and Smarty Jet (Marco Debono) followed home in that order.

In the first class Silver race, Dutch mare Zizazimoko (Tony Demanuele) led all the way. French Neo De Mira, under the guidance of George Muscat, won the second class Silver race after dashing strongly from the outside during the last 300 metres. A keen tussle between five horses developed in the final metres of the third and last class Silver race. It was French Saphir Barbes (Charles Camilleri) which past the post first.

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

L-ewwel success ta’ Overtaker By Sib fl-oghla klassi

L-aktar tigrija importanti li saret il-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa kienet wahda tal-oghla klassi Premier fuq distanza qasira ta’ 2140m. Din kienet taghmel parti mit-tieni laqgha tal-istagun fuq disa’ tigrijiet kollha ghal zwiemel tat-trott fuq distanza qasira u ntrebhet mid-debuttant Taljan Overtaker By Sib misjuq minn wiehed mis-sidien tieghu, l-Ghawdxi Marco Refalo.

Sittax kienu b’kollox iz-zwiemel li hadu sehem fl-aqwa tigrija tal-gurnata. L-aktar ziemel li beda b’sahhtu wara li nghata l-bidu ufficjali permezz tal-karozza tat-tluq kien propju Overtaker By Sib li fl-ewwel metri fetah vantagg zghir minn Radjah Man (Felix Casha) u ziemel gdid iehor Zvediz, Jaguar Ruda (Anton Cassar). Dawra mit-tmiem, Overtaker By Sib kien ghadu jigri b’certu qawwa u ma sab ebda diffikulta’ aktar il-quddiem biex jirregistra l-ewwel rebha fi xtutna. Dan facilment b’zewg tulijiet u nofs minn Pedro Vici (Johan Axisa) u Rainbow Dancer (Michael Ellul). Ziemel iehor gdid li gie impurtat dan l-ahhar minn Franza, Rickshow (Charles Camilleri) kellu wkoll debutt tajjeb meta spicca fir-raba’ pozizzjoni. Overtaker By Sib kellu medja ta’ 1.15.1” fil-kilometru.

Il-kumplament tat-tigrijiet kienu riservati ghal zwiemel mill-klassi Gold, Silver, Bronze u Copper. Fl-ewwel minn zewg tigrijiet tal-klassi Gold, Udon d’Occagnes (Tony Demanuele) biddel il-pass waqt li kien quddiem u meta beda jipprepara biex jaffronta l-ahhar kurva tieghu. B’hekk dan iz-ziemel safa’ skwalifikat u fid-dritta finali ta c-cans lil Cool Caviar (Julian Farrugia) biex jiehu l-kmand u jaqsam il-linja finali l-ewwel b’distakk ta’ zewg tulijiet u nofs minn Solide Du Jayle li kien misjuq minn sewwieq iehor Ghawdxi, Marvin Cauchi. Rubis Du Chanoy (Noel Baldacchino) u Pile Ou Face (Joe Schembri) dahlu warajhom f’dik l-ordni.

L-ahhar metri tat-tieni tigrija Gold ukoll kienu mill-aktar eccitanti. Fil-fatt, fid-dritta finali ta’ din it-tigrija zviluppa dwell kontinwu bejn l-Izvediz Brigadoon (Rodney Gatt) u d-Daniz Sensei (Noel Baldacchino). Kien tal-ewwel li rnexxilu bi tbatija jiehu t-tieni rebha konsekuttiva u f’Malta, b’Midnight Hall (Mario Fenech) u Smarty Jet (Marco debono) ikollhom ukoll pjazzament tajjeb meta jtemmu fit-tielet u r-raba’ post rispettivament.

Fl-ewwel minn tliet tigrijiet Silver kienet l-Olandiza Zizazimoko li f’idejn Tony Demanuele kienet quddiem kwazi mill-bidu sat-tmiem. Neo De Mira (George Muscat) rebah it-tieni tigrija mill-istess klassi wara attakk mibdi fuq in-nahha ta’ barra 300m mit-tmiem. B’kuntrast, ferm eccitanti kienet it-tielet u l-ahhar tigrija tal-istess klassi fejn fiha kellna taqtiegha bejn hames zwiemel f’nofs id-dritta finali. Bi ftit temm rebbieh Saphir Barbes ta’ Charles Camilleri.
