STARTING NUMBERS DRAWN BY HORSE OWNERS

The starting numbers for the final of the ‘Tazza l-Kbira 2018’ were drawn by the horse owners during a press conference held at the Malta Racing Club.

The ‘Tazza L-Kbira’ is the most prestigious race in the local horse racing calendar and it is raced over a distance of 2640 metres.

The 12 finalists were determined from 68 top category trotters on the island following a series of 6 heats and three semi-finals. Unfortunately two horses have withdrawn from the competition prior to the draw due to injuries thus the final will be disputed between 10 horses.

The final of the ‘Tazza l-Kbira’ will be held on Sunday 22nd April with the spectacle at the Marsa Race Track starting at 1:30 pm.

The field will see 10 geldings trying to engrave their name on the prestigious trophy two of whom were also in the finalist field last year – Service Secret and Midsummer King whilst Brigadoon was a finalist in 2016. The field sees horses from France, Sweden and Italy.

As expected a special entertainment programme is also being prepared which will include the participation of the Malta Mini Owners Club who will be showing their vehicles as well as taking part in the finalist parade by transporting the owners to the presentation area.

The drivers will be brought on old horse drawn vehicles and carts.

The finalist horses will be led by the 2011 Tazza l-Kbira winner Kakisis.

The horse numbers as drawn:

1 - Service Secret
2 – Paparazzi
3 - Rififi Nonantais
4 – Urac
5 – Tchao Chamant
6 – Midsummer King
7 – Brigadoon
8 - Urgah de Rib
