Queen Elizabeth II Silver Race Final( Sunday, 29th November, 2015 - 20:26 )
Currently leading in the competition for most consistent horse of the year, Swedish ROYAL IN is not new to the winning circle. Up till today he won 9 of his 14 starts in 2015 but yesterday's victory does not stop any where short from being a one in a lifetime event for him and all his entourage.

On the occasion of a visit to Malta by Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II related to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held in Malta this year, The Queen was delighted to visit Maltese horse racing at Marsa race track. An avid rider herself Marsa complex reminds The Queen of her younger days when she used to ride horses during her stay in Malta.

ROYAL IN (se) was the winner of the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Race Final, organised for this occasion. The winning trophy was awarded to the driver and owner by none other than The Queen herself in the presence of Her Excellence the President of Malta, Marie Louise Coleiro Preca.

It has surely been a memorable day for all of us at the track with a wonderful final in which ROYAL IN delighted the public and the Monarch herself. All in all it was written in the stars. Who could win such a race when the Royal Highness was over at the track if not ROYAL IN. That's what's in a name :) !

It-Tazza l-Kbira 2015 tibda hawn.( Friday, 20th March, 2015 - 20:00 )
Nhar il-Ħadd li ġej isir l-akbar programm ta’ l-istaġun meta jingħata bidu għal kampjonat li minnu joħroġ r-rebbieħ ta’ l-aqwa unur fit-tiġrijiet tat-trott lokali – It-Tazza l-Kbira. Ngħidu li hu l-akbar wieħed għax sitta mit-tmien tiġrijiet huma riservati għall-aqwa żwiemel li bħalissa jinsabu Malta fejn kollha ser ikunu qed jissieltu sabiex jikkwalifikaw għas-semi finali.

Din is-sena 68 żiemel inkitbu sabiex jiġru f’dan il-kampjonat u għad-differenza ta’ dawn l-aħħar staġuni huma kollha ġejjin mill-klassi Premier. Matul l-aħħar tas-sena l-oħra kif ukoll il-bidu ta’ din is-sena s-sidien Maltin xtraw ħafna żwiemel ta’ klassi ogħlja u l-qabża fil-kwalita qed tiġi riflessa fit-tiġrijiet ta’ l-ogħla kategorija. Fost dawk li ħa jiġru nhar il-Ħadd hemm 8 debuttanti kif ukoll żwiemel li diġa naqqxu reputazzjoni lokalment bħar-rebbieħ tat-Tazza l-Kbira tas-sena l-oħra Cloria Victis, ir-rebbieħ tat-Tazza tal-President tas-sena l-oħra Pedro Vici u r-rebbieh tat-Tazza l-Kbira 2013 Nabab du Chatelet. Hemm ukoll l-aktar żewġ t’iżwiemel veloċi ta’ Malta – Orcas Bac u Prieure it-tnejn li huma għandhom fidhom ir-rekords tad-distanzi 1640m u 2140m.

Iż-żwiemel l-oħra bejniethom rebħu ħafna tiġrijiet u anke unuri li mpossibli jissemmew kollha. Dan kollu jixhed li għal darb’oħra t-Tazza l-Kbira ser toffri dak l-ispettaklu li kulħadd ikun qed jistenna. Wara kollox dan huwa l-unur li kull sid u ġerrej jaspira li jnaqqax ismu fuqu meta jkollu żiemel ta’ l-ogħla kategorija.

Dawk l-24 żiemel li ser jikkwalifikaw mill-programm tal-Ħadd jiġru f’żewġ semi finali li jsiru nhar Ħadd il-Għid il-5 t’April bil-finali ta’ tnax il-żiemel issir ħmistax wara l-Ħadd 19 t’April.

Il-programm tal-Ħadd jibda fis-13:30 u l-heats tat-Tazza l-Kbira jibdew fis-2:25 pm. Id-distanza ta’ dan il-Kampjonat hija bħas-soltu 2640m.

Malta Trot Racing is 7 years old!!!( Friday, 6th February, 2015 - 08:20 )
A project started back on the 5th February 2008, our website is now 7 years old. Our website now holds 2506 horses and 741 different drivers as well as a staggering 453 racing meetings and 4024 races.

This has become a massive peace of work which is not always easy to maintain. However the support of all those who advertise with us, as well as the huge amount of following we have both from Maltese and Gozitans as well as many foreigners, helps us to keep on going in updating and maintaining our website.

On this 7th Anniversary since the start of this project we would like to Thank YOU for your support!!
