ALDB Sette Giugno Cup Finalists draw starting numbers

For the second consecutive year and as per the agreement signed last year, the prestigious Sette Giugno Cup is being organised in collaboration with ALDB & Associates Ltd.

During a press conference held on Tuesday afternoon at the Malta Equidrome, ALDB Director Aldo Busuttil stated that ALDB & Associates Ltd, renowned for its top notch Health & Safety Services, has earned the trust of leading construction firms in Malta. “Recognising the benefits of expanding partnerships, ALDB & Associates last year initiated a collaboration with the Malta Equidrome where this partnership not only involves the provision of Health and Safety services throughout the refurbishment of the Malta Equidrome premises but also the sponsorship of the upcoming top category ALDB Sette Giugno Cup.

The press conference was also addressed by Malta Equidrome’s CEO Dr Matthew Brincat who showed his appreciation for this collaboration with ALDB & Associates which helps the Malta Equidrome organise more elite competitions during the horse racing season, as well as Malta Racing Club’s vice Chairman Anthony Demanuele who also expressed satisfaction that new companies were backing the sport of local horse racing.

The 13th running of the Sette Giugno Cup will once again see an increase in prize money and this will not only reflect on the amount distributed but will now include also the 5th place. Apart from the €6000 in total prize money in the final, trophies will be distributed to the first five finishers with the winner also getting a commemorative horse blanket and his name engraved on the Sette Giugno Cup which was inaugurated in 2011. Personalised starting numbers will also be used by the finalists which will then be kept as a souvenir of their participation.

The final will be raced on the evening of Friday 7th June and a very balanced race is expected based on the last performances of the 12 finalists. Included amongst the 12 are last year’s winner Akela Play who also was 4th in this year’s Tazza l-Kbira and has won several honours, Charming Soldier 3rd last year, winner of the 2022 Tazza l-Kbira and other championships, as well as Velvet Gio and Mac Smily who finished 2nd and 5th in the recent running of the BOV Tazza l-Kbira.
