This month’s choice fell on Gozitan Julian Farrugia. This decision is always based on nominations made by the track’s horse racing journalists as well as members of the Malta Racing Club Council.

50-year old Julian Farrugia lives in Sannat Gozo and has been holding a licence with the Malta Racing Club for 25 years. One can say that he has acquired significant success in horse racing driving more than 3800 races and achieving more than 570 victories.

He has always established himself with the best local catch drivers and since the 1998/99 season has always finished with the first four apart from during the years 2004 and 2005 when he had nearly stopped driving altogether.

During this season he is currently in 5th place in the champion driver classification having won 9 races five of which during the month of April.

Farrugia has already won the honour of driver of the month twice during April 2012 and July 2013.
