Rodney Gatt impresses with five wins during Friday’s meeting

The 28th and the 29th meeting of the year were held during the weekend at the Marsa Racetrack.

Both programmes included the semi-final races from various championships for French trotters held on a short distance of 2,140m.

The two most important races were the semi-finals from the Prix De Vincennes championship for class Premier trotters. From these races 12 trotters made it to the final stage.

In the first class Premier semi-final, Eldorado de Ver (Noel Baldacchino) sealed its fourth win of the year in Malta after taking the lead in the final metres.

As expected, favourite and popular Crack Money (Michael Ellul) was unchallenged in the second class Premier heat and led all the way.

This French trotter registered its fourth win in Malta and its third in a row in a new national average time of 1.11.9” per kilometre on a short distance of 2.140m.
