Damour Jiel and Eldorado De Ver won Sunday’s major events at the Marsa Racetrack.

These were races open for class Premier trotters on a long distance of 2640m and formed part of the 45th meeting of the season consisting of eleven races all for trotters.

Thirteen trotters lined up for the first Class Premier race. The Norwegian mare Secret Snap (Johan Gaffarena) was the fastest horse after the autostart and immediately opened a small lead from Damour Jiel (Charles Degiorgio) and Hunter Montana (Tony Demanuele). With a lap to go, it was Degiorgio’s trotter which took the lead.

Damour Jiel managed to pass the finishing post first easily by a length from Cadet (Noel Baldacchino) and Cupidon Du Corbon (Charles Camilleri). Dexter Des Baux (Ivan Stivala) followed home in that order. The winner sealed its second win of the year, and in Malta, in a good average time of 1.14.9” per kilometer.    

The early leader of the second Class Premier race, Akela Play (Clint Vassallo) ran out of steam midway through the final straight. This Italian trotter was eventually overtaken by Eldorado De Ver (Noel Baldacchino) which registered its fifth win of the season from Djembe Du Pont which was driven by Noel’s son, Dylan Baldacchino. Akela Play had to settle for third place from Dottarus (Herman Mc Kay).

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