MRTL Summer Championship Finals on Sunday at Marsa

The seven MRTL Summer Championship Finals will be raced at the Marsa Racetrack in extraordinary circumstances on Sunday.

Whereas usually a crowd of around 2,000 people is present, this time capacity will be limited to 300 people due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the authorities.

Competition during this championship has been phenomenal during which 10 meetings, comprising of 90 races, were held during which horses could race a maximum of three times in order to try and acquire points according to the order of finish from first to tenth place.

A total of 438 horses received points from which 12 horses were selected in each of the seven categories so that 84 horses will be trying to win one of the honours next Sunday.

During Sunday’s programme a total of €10,275 in prize money will be distributed whilst trophies will be given to the first four finishers in each category and the seven winning horses will also receive a commemorative blanket.

As the general public is being asked to follow these finals from home, the Malta Racing Club has made arrangements so that the whole programme is aired live on YouTube as well as the Malta Racing Club’s FaceBook page.

Apart from officials from the Malta Racing Club, two directors from the Marsa Race Track Limited Consortium will be present namely Frankie Schembri and Johann Farrugia.

First final starts at 7pm.
