The 12th meeting of the season which was held yesterday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack consisted of 13 races, all for trotters.

Certainly the two most important races were the two Assikura Championship finals for class Gold and Bronze trotters on a short distance of 2,140m. These were won by Gigant Well and Galerno Valou respectively.

In the class Gold final, the early leader Danish Cutty Sark (Eman Attard) started to slow down when the front horses turned for their final straight.

This trotter was overtaken by favourite Gigant Well (Charles Degiorgio) which recorded its fourth win of the season. Cutty Sark had to settle for second place from Doudou De Bouere (Jean Claude Pace) and Dynamit Life (Noel Baldacchino).

Galerno Valou won the Assikura Championship final for class Bronze trotters.

There was a keen tussle between five trotters in the final metres of the class Bronze final. It was Galerno Valou (Redent Magro) which gained its second win in a row from Festin d’Avenir (Dylan Baldacchino) and Crack De Bas (Cliferty Calleja). Flash Du Rabutin (Charles Camilleri) finished in fourth place. 

At the end of these finals, Andrew Grech, on behalf of the sponsors, presented the trophies to the owners and drivers of the winning horses.

Yesterday’s card also included a class Premier race entitled the Tallinn Hippodrome race on a long distance of 2640m.

This was won by French Dunbar (Redent Magro) which gained its first win of the season after increasing its speed in the final metres.
