The national crack bids his coach with a win in Son Pardo

The Son Pardo racetrack lived its most emotional day, with the dispute of the National Criterium, with an exception participant, the national crack Trebol, who returned to Mallorca after six years residing in France and competing the best racetracks in Europe. A career doubly motivated, as it was the farewell of Biel Pou, his coach and driver since he was a colt.
The race, which had a run of 3,150 meters, was dominated by Biskit Silva, followed by Un d’en Fliper and Trebol. These positions remained unchanged until the last 700 meters, at which time Viude IR began to advance positions from the last squares of the peloton. Biskit Silva held the first place until 500 meters from the conclusion, at which time Trebol decided to attack, although the Peña Bonanza showed opposition. In the line of tribune Trebol changed of pace, passing in front and raising to a tribune full of people who overturned with the menorquín crack stopping the clock to 1’18”9. Biskit Silva held the second place and Burinot took the third.
After the race of the Institut de l’Esport Hípic de Mallorca and the Federation Balear de Trot paid a tribute to Trebol, Biel Pou and its owner, Pau Salord.

In second position they went alternating Un Nuage d’Osmoz, Anna Mix and Uppercut de Manche, but to 500 meters of the end Anna Mix counterattacked, recovering little by little the meters that needed to put in danger the position leader of Swedishman. The victory was not decided until the same goal, between Anna Mix and Swedishman. Finally it was the mare of Franck Nivard that imposed to 1’15”7, followed by Uppercut de Manche to 1’15”8 and Swedishman, that finally was third.
