Eleven trotters took part in the class Silver final. Prince Lu (Shawn Portelli) was the fastest trotter at first, and during the first metres opened a small lead from Sirocco Kadesh (Noel Baldacchino) and Sitka Rod (Tony Demanuele). However with 300m to go, the early leader ran out of steam and started to slow down. In the final straight it was overtaken by Sirocco Kadesh which grabbed its first win in Malta from Sorcier d’Orient (Kurt Saliba) and Prince Lu. Ramses De Tyrole (Anton Cassar) finished fourth. At the end of this final, Mr Shawn Pete Azzopardi, on behalf of the sponsors presented the winning trophy to Gorg Spiteri and Noel Baldacchino, the owner and driver respectively of the winning horse.

This trotter managed to secure its second win in a row and its third in Malta easily by a length and a half from Smarty Jet (Jason Vassallo) and Robinson Wic (Clint Vassallo). Orcas Bac (Rodney Gatt) finished fourth.

In the second class Premier race, Ricky Rock (Noel Baldacchino) upped its pace with a lap to go. This French eleven year old trotter took the lead midway through the final straight and prevailed by half length from Quillian Joyeux (Andrew Farrugia) and Rocco Darche (Ludvic Ghigo). Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar) followed home in that order. This was Baldacchino’s fifth win of the day. Earlier during the afternoon, the Zejtun driver had also triumphed with Lajos Bellan and Touareg Du Boscail in two class Silver races.

The other six races on the card were open for class Gold and Silver trotters. In the first class Gold race of the day, a keen duel between two French trotters developed during its final hundred metres. It was Ursiking (Mario Falzon) which gained its first win in Malta from Quio De Nappes (Noel Baldacchino). Original Blue (Chris Cassar) took its first win of the year in the second class Gold race after leading all the way and after going all out in the final straight in order to hold off the challenge of Quoky Jet (Emmanuel Garzia) and Sirius De Bel Air (Owen Borg).
