The Mediterranean Horseracing Union Jockey Championship 2011 kickstarts this Sunday 13th February at Cagnes Sur Mer Racetrack , Nice  Cote DÁzur  in France . Malta placed a merited second place in last years Championship after winners  Morocco were crowned Champions in the last leg held on the 8th December in the Ippodromo Del Mediterraneo in Siracusa. The results achieved last year for Malta are very encouraging as it is a discipline were we are still rather limited and other competing countries such as France and Italy have by far many experienced and professional jockeys.
