Meeting abandoned after eighth race due to inclement weather

Gambit Brodde won Sunday’s major event at the Marsa Racetrack.

This was a semi-final from the ALDB Sette Giugno Cup championship for class Premier trotters on a short distance of 2140m.

This race formed part of the 27th meeting of the season which originally had to consist of ten races all for trotters but was abandoned after the 8th race due to inclement weather.

The last two races were postponed for next Friday and Sunday.

In the class Premier semifinal, Gambit Brodde (Rodney Gatt) was unchallenged during all the distance and managed to seal easily its third win in Malta and its second in a row by a length from Liam Dana (Jesmar Gafa’) and Akela Play (Charles Degiorgio). Charming Soldier (Paul Galea) ended fourth from Viking’s Topline (Eugenio Bondin) and Surf’N Turf (Charles Camilleri).

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held on Friday. The first race should start at 6.30pm.
