[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="315" caption="Romans Know Breaking The Lismore 420m Track Record"][/caption]Roman's Know scored the best win of his career when he scored a record breaking win in the Tony Turcato Painting Stake 420m at the Lismore Greyhounds on Tuesday night September 16.
Roman's Know who can be a risky beginner landed a length in front at the start and that set up the win. The Margaret Dwyer owned and trained sprinter recorded 23.94 seconds in beating Yorklea City shaving one hundredth of a second off the record held by Forever Keroma since December 2006.
Roman's Know ($3.80) has now won ten races from twenty-three starts nine of those at Lismore.
Yorklea City ($4.80) chased the winner all the way and his run to be second just one length from the winner was a sterling effort.
Corporal O'reilly the $2.50 favourite was third, 3.1/4 lengths away.
Rumble Supreme set the time standard for the night over 520 metres when he scored an emphatic 6.3/4 lens victory in the Ron Winkler Smash Repairs Stake.
Rumble Supreme ($2.80) drove to the lead in the run to the first turn and cleared out for an great win.
The Steve Kavanagh trained youngster stopped the clock at 30.00 seconds not far away from the track record which stands at 29.86. Rumble Supreme is a greyhound well worth following in the upcoming Lismore Classic series (Vic Peters Classic) which commences on September 30.
