As expected, the class Premier race and the two semi-final races from the Assikura Championship for class Gold trotters were the main attraction during the 8th meeting of the season which was held yesterday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack. This programme consisted of eight races all for trotters. The class Premier race was run on a long distance of 3140m metres and was won by French Quetzal De Brix driven by Clint Vassallo.

Sixteen horses took part in the class Premier race. Quetzal De Brix was the fastest trotter at first, opening a small lead from Quad Censerie (Charles Farrugia) and P.A. Surprise (Lorraine Cunningham). With a lap to go it was Quad Censerie (Charles Farrugia) which took the lead, however with 500m to go Farrugia’s horse ran out of steam and was overtaken once again by Quetzal De Brix (Clint Vassallo) which went ahead to register its first win of the season from Quad Censerie. Pronostic De Neige (Michael Axisa) and Ripsos De Fa (Ivan Bilocca). The winner clocked an average time of 1.17.3” per kilometer. For Clint Vassallo this was its second win of the day.

From the two class Gold semi-final races held on a short distance of 2140m ten horses qualified for the final stage. In the first semi-final, Noel Baldacchino put Swedish Power To Be in front with a lap to go. This trotter was unchallenged during the last 1000 metres and secured its second win in a row and in Malta by a length from Magic Broline (Clint Vassallo). Madrileno (Mario Fenech), Made In Hoff (Charles Camilleri) and Palazio Valterne (David Ellul) followed behind in that order.

A keen tussle between three trotters developed in the final straight of the second class Gold semi-final. It was Swedish Royal In, under the guidance of one of its owners, Gozitan Marco Debono, which grabbed its second consecutive win and of the season from Lover Roc (Jesmond Attard) and Quefi Des Caillons (Michael Ellul). Qurieux Du Ponchet (Clint Vassallo) and Energitj (Carl Caruana) also progressed to the final stage.

The other races on yesterday’s card were reserved for class Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters. In the normal class Gold race, Sensei (Noel Baldacchino) upped its pace from the outside 700m from the finishing line. This Danish trotter gained its first win on the Maltese islands easily by two lengths and a half from Zalgado Transs R (Nicholas Bonello) and Peel And Stick (Eugenio Bondin). French newcomer Sirius De Bel Air (Owen Borg) ended in fourth place. It should be noted that the first two trotters in this race are both owned by Mr Angelo Bonello.
