Driven by Noel Baldacchino, French Eldorado De Ver won Sunday’s major event at the Marsa Racetrack. This was the Bavaria Championship final for class Gold trotters on a long distance of 2640m. This final formed part of the 21st meeting of the season consisting of nine races all for trotters.

Twelve trotters lined up for the class Gold final. Cesillac (Charles Degiorgio) was the fastest horse at first, opening a small lead from Eldorado De Ver (Noel Baldacchino) and Diaz Diarpet (Cliferty Calleja). However, 600m from the finishing line, Degiorgio’s trotter started to slow down and was eventually overtaken by Eldorado De Ver which went to seal its third win of the season and its second in a row after sustaining the challenge of Ciroco D’Auvillier (Herman McKay) in the final straight. Eagle Pass (Rodney Gatt) ended in third place from Eden Petteviniere (Jesmar Gafa’).

The winner clocked a good average time of 1.14.8” per kilometer. After this final, Ms Jolein De Krijger, on behalf of the sponsors, presented the winning trophy to Noel Baldacchino and the owners of the winning horse.

It should be noted that in one of the normal class Gold races, Casino d’Ourville (Paul Galea) managed to win in an average time of 1.14.8” which is a new national record on the 3140m distance.

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