Diza Du Courtille and Elan Baroque won Sunday’s major events at the Marsa Racetrack. These were races open for class Premier trotters on a short distance of 2,140m and formed part of the 30th meeting of the season consisting of nine races all for trotters

Twelve trotters lined up for the first class Premier race.

The early leader of the race, Venale (Paul Galea), started to slow down when the front horses turned for their final straight.

Galea’s trotter was overtaken by Diza Du Courtille (Ivan Stivala) which gained its first win of the year. Venale had to settle for second place from Caprice De Cosse (Gilmour Azzopardi) and Blackaro (Charlton Gauci).

Rodney Gatt started to increase the pace with French Elan Baroque with a lap to go. Elan Baroque took the lead and managed to past the finishing post first easily by a length from Rally Hans (Marco Refalo) and Cadet (Noel Baldacchino). Sir Q.C. (Julian Farrugia) followed home in that order.

For Elan Baroque this was its first win in Malta.  

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