This year we had 19 more horses than last year participating and in fact we had an extra qualifying heat for a total of 5 races held during the two racing programmes on Friday 2nd and Sunday 4th October from which 20 qualified for the semi finals.  The two semi finals were held on Sunday 18th October and the 10 finalist horses became known.

Like last year the total prize money in this final is 1600 Euro with the winner getting 900 Euro. Four trophies were also commissioned for the occasion and the winning horse will also get a commemorative blanket.  Apart from this the winning owner will receive a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the second placed a Johnnie Walker Platinum, the third a Johnnie Walker Gold Label and the fourth placed will receive a bottle of Johnnie Walker Double Black Label. The winning owner also gets the right to keep the Johnnie Walker Trophy for a year. This trophy dates back to 1939.  Last year’s winner was New Star DK driven by Noel Baldacchino.
