Friday, November 14, 2014, 1:12

During the racing programme next Friday evening Chris Cassar will be honoured as the driver of the month for June 2014. This presentation had not been done before as the local racing season was on a break.

34-year old Chris Cassar lives in Qormi and he obtained his harness racing licence with the Malta Racing Club in 1999. His first official race was with Count Launcher on 4th April 1999 but he had to wait a little bit more than 10 years before he won his first race and this was with Jean Perrine on 19th June 2009.

Up until last Sunday, Chris had won a total of 10 races and fnished 40 times from 2nd to 4th place.

During June Cassar drove 4 races of which he won two and finished 2nd and 4th in the others. One of his victories was with Panda des Fleches in the Prix de Cabourg, a championship sponsored by the French Trotting Association for Class Silver horses. Next Sunday Chris Cassar will be driving his own horse Original Blue in the President’s Cup Final.

The choice for driver of the month is decided by the Malta Racing Club after the journalists who cover the races regularly submit their nominations.

This award is being sponsored by M.Demajo (Wines & Spirits) Ltd and their whiskey Johnnie Walker thanks to Mr Alfred Braddick who is the Company’s Marketing Manager.
