Trotting in Malta
The card says on the back "Horse racing, a popular weekend sport between October and May". I believe the races are usually held on a Sunday. I do like the man with his race card and pencil behind his ear, a familiar sight in any race course in the world.
Although Malta does have a few flat racing events its main sporting interest are these trotting races. The top Maltese horse racing driver for 2009 was Charles Camilleri, and he is not resting for the summer because he will be competing in the 5th leg of the Prix de la Mediterranee in France this Friday. Malta is lying third in the competition at the moment. The cup is contested between the countries of France, Malta, Italy, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Russia and Algeria.
