Full race day style catering, a fully stocked bar and an open TAB provided breeders, trainers and buyers with everything they could have wanted.

Except for the opportunity to buy the dogs that they had come to purchase.

Plenty of dogs “went under the hammer”, but plenty didn’t. They might be listed as sold, but when they are being bought back does it really count?

One young bitch with plenty of early pace attracted a stack of attention and was sure to be a good buy for someone. Nup, bought back for $17,250. This is utterly ridiculous on many fronts, but isn’t the fault of the owner in any capacity.

High profile trainer Darren McDonald arrived with quality performers Bremer and Sig Sauer. Both were bought back and remain at Darren’s place according to Fasttrack. These two sons of Kinloch Brae – Great Gunns will now contest the potentially weak $25,000 race next year.

What are the options to make this fairer for those wanting to buy and sell legitimately? There were a few thoughts being thrown around by various people in attendance Saturday.

1 – Buybacks aren’t eligible to race in the series.
2 – Buybacks are charged at 25% instead of 10%.
3 – Make the auction an optional reserve auction. But those that place a reserve can’t race in the series.
4 – Option of withdrawing from auction if unhappy with the performance. Again, can’t race in the series.
5 – Buybacks pay full price of the purchase on the day and receive a 90% rebate the following week from the GRV. Buyers can’t pay 10% on the day, so it should be fair for all.

One thing is for sure, the current system makes it tough for genuine buyers to purchase a dog. There were instances where genuine buyers sat back and didn’t even get to “raise a paddle”. Another instance resulted in a buyer genuinely bidding to $15,000 and copping frowns from a person that was obviously buying back regardless of price.

It’s blatantly obvious that people don’t want to lose a young pup with genuine ability that hasn’t fired a shot in the sales heats. However, there needs to be something in place to separate the genuine buyers from the buybacks.

Also of note is that Dave Burnett was at the sales to buy, but left empty handed. He has been heavily involved in past sales at Bendigo and races group performer Kiss Me Ketut who has won in excess of $200,000 in prizemoney. Linda Britton was at the sales and didn’t buy. Rob Britton was at the sales and didn’t buy.

Plenty of industry leaders left without buying despite intending to do so and this indicates a significant problem. If it isn’t broken you don’t fix it, but these sales need some changing. The concept is fantastic, but it’s time to make some adjustments.

10BABAGOI [5]Res.5255625.99(7)D Eddy (Kialla West)

Unbroken (8) comes here with very strong NSW form and in the majority of his races to date he has shown explosive early speed. From the pink he should get a fairly clear passage soon after box rise and that should allow him to muster pace and cross the field. He has two quick Maitland wins to his credit over this journey so if he does cross them early he will prove very hard to reel in.

Triple Indy (6) is a highly promising speedster and she looked impressive when scoring at Ballarat in 22.06 last time out, the box draw doesn’t help tonight but with an even getaway she should get a chance to make an impact.

Soda Man (2) is another who has shown great talent in a brief career, he was a top 25.53 debut winner here earlier this month and a similar effort tonight will see him make an impact on the semaphore board.

Northern Dancer (7) is the only other genuine chance, he has been placed in two of three here and he shouldn’t be too far away again.

Top Four: 8 – 6 – 2 – 7

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Unbroken with Sportingbet.

10SHINTARO JUNETSU [5]Res.6217825.78(1)B Kinder (Girgarre)

Premier Hawk (1) has won four of nine starts to date and his two most recent victories have come from this draw. If he can step away cleanly he should have enough speed to hold them out and as they turn for home he should have a race winning lead.

Mister Sunraysia (5) does his best racing here and if he can find the rail early he should be a major player, three starts ago he looked impressive when posting a strong 25.66 victory here.

Jimary Vixen (4) is a classy NSW chaser who is better known over longer journeys, if she can avoid early bother she shouldn’t be too far away at the finish line.

College Queen (2) rounds out the winning hopes, she is much better than her recent form suggests and she has the ability to ping the lids. If she happens to cross the red early she will give a great sight at nice odds.

Top Four: 1 – 5 – 4 – 2

Dyna Villa Makes His Own Luck http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/dyna-villa-makes-his-own-luck/58335 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/dyna-villa-makes-his-own-luck/58335#comments Sun, 23 Nov 2014 21:47:18 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=58335 Dyna Villa’s emphatic victory in last Fridays’s Melbourne Cup completed an extraordinary series of eight wins in succession at the Sandown track. Could there be another dog which has done that at any one track? Miata, of course, at Cannington, but any others?

There was another unusual coincidence on the night.

The big race was worth $600,000 to the lucky connections but Australian punters also invested almost the same amount on the race, split up 62% in Victoria, 27% in NSW and 11% on Tattsbet in its four states and territories – Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and the NT. That assumes that online betting figures (which are not published) were in the same proportions as TAB turnover. Win totes alone pulled in a total of $187,000 and the First Four $74,000. Figures may have been helped by crowds deserting the ODI cricket at the MCG in favour of the world’s richest greyhound race?

Perhaps you might shed a tear for connections and supporters (including this column) of second placegetter Chica Destacada as the luck did not run its way. The fact that Dyna Villa was able to lead clearly around the first turn was in part due to the unusual failure of Star Recall (6) and Luca Neveelk (7) to jump well and therefore get in the road. Both these normally good beginners were slow out, leaving buckets of space for Dyna Villa to wind up.

That said, Dyna Villa has improved its starts significantly over its past few runs, recording sections of 5.00 in its heat and 5.04 in the big one.

The second factor was that Chica Destacada got a slight prat from behind as it rounded the first turn, giving the Dyna Villa a bigger break into the back straight. However, Chica Destacada took a lot of ground off the winner on the way to the post. At the moment, 515m is about as far as Dyna Villa wants to go but it may well strengthen as it matures more – it is just 25 months old now.

But go back to the sectional times, which tell the above story in figures.

(Dyna Villa’s average is affected by slower times in its earlier races at provincial tracks).

The other oddball comment came from the stewards, who claimed …

“Dyna Villa crossed to the rail approaching the first turn checking Keybow, Above All, Awesome Project and Luca Neveelk causing Cosmic Wise and Star Recall to race wide. Chica Destacada checked off Dyna Villa on the first turn”.

Wrong and wrong. This is terrible nonsense. For a start, Luca Neveelk came out poorly and was nowhere near Dyna Villa. The others were well away from Dyna Villa at all stages. Chica Destacada got a slight ankle tap from behind as they went around the first turn, by which time Dyna Villa was well clear.

Too Much, Too Far

The Bold Trease final over the long distance, worth another $100,000, went pretty much as everyone expected. Sweet It Is went well into the red for a while but ended up at a more sensible $2.10 or $2.30 as backing came for Space Star and Blinkers On (the apostrophe should be deleted – it’s incorrect English).

In the event, Sweet It Is jumped quite well, dropped back and then came again at the end as the others faded – and fade they did, at least where it counted. Compare the times.

Zipping Maggie and Space Star had every chance to improve their lot but had nothing left in the tank. Two successive distance races is too much for them, as they have demonstrated before. Blinkers On was sent out at big “unders” of $3.40 and never got in the race.

Sweet It Is looked spectacular as it gapped them in the home straight but it was doing nothing more than it normally does – coming home hard while the others were dropping off. En route, it had met with no real interference except for small hold ups of its own doing.

Once Again

Moving on to Saturday’s Race 6 at The Meadows, the steward’s fairytales continued.

“Kerrigan Bale crossed to the rail approaching the first turn checking Polly Bale, Allen Eryk and Lektra Outlaw”.

Never touched them. Kerrigan Bale speared out and led all the way. It checked nothing – the others made their own problems. What are these guys looking at?

8YOLO’S MAGIC8123.18June Whyte

I think we can find a little bit of value in this event, Princely Bogan hasn’t had much luck in recent weeks and if he can get away cleanly today he should run a nice race at odds. He normally shows good early speed and if he can settle in the top two he should be there at the finish.

Heza Good Size has a big engine but his past two performances haven’t been great. From the rails draw he should be able to settle in a more prominent position early and I expect him to be able to regain some confidence.

Just Contrary is showing some promise and if she can reproduce her 22.91 winning effort here from three runs back, she will play a major role. She has proven to be a little hit or miss at box rise to date but if she happens to step she will figure in the money.

Dyna Vanity has been racing in much stronger company of late and she should appreciate this class. She doesn’t possess a heap of early speed but she has enough pace to settle in the first half of the field. This race features a few runners which will struggle over the journey so I am expecting her to pick them off late in the race.

Jetta Kahn will likely start favourite and she looked impressive when winning at Angle Park in 30.42 last time out. She must lead to win but she is fairly reliable early so I am expecting her to settle in a prominent position.

Bubba Ray Dudley is another who drops in class and his form is better than it appears, the wide draw should suit and he could run a big race at nice odds.

Miss Sueko hasn’t had much luck of late and she has been racing in stronger class. From the rails draw she should be able to find the early lead and she has posted a ridiculous 29.67 when landing on the bunny here previously. She is a confidence chaser, so if she happens to find the bunny she will grow a leg.

Linski was far from disgraced here last week and he produced a strong effort when placed here last time out, he doesn’t win too often but he generally hits the line well and he is always thereabouts.

Coolabah Jet has a great record here and she caught the eye when scoring here in a slick 29.80 two runs back. She will need some luck early but she has raced well from wide draws in the past.

Black Empress rounds out the chances, she beat the classy Xtreme Knocka here three runs back and she is capable of pinging the lids at times.

Berridale Lad has scored some breathtaking Canberra wins of late and if he can bring that form to Wentworth Park he will take a power of beating. His box manners aren’t great but from the red he should get a fairly clear passage early and if he can hold them out he will be running some serious time on the bunny.

Natural Player is making his metro debut and if he runs out the 500m he should make the red work hard for victory. Two starts ago he set the track alight at Bulli with a 22.32 victory so it is likely that he will lead tonight and the only query will be the last 40m.

Stunning Ashberg is the run on type in the race and if she can avoid early bother she should run a cheeky race at odds, I dont think she can win but she might be a good one to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets.

Mr. Uno rounds out the chances, he should get a nice sit during the middle stages of the race and he should run home nicely.

Tuavasa Shek is making his metro and staying debut but he appears to be the real deal and if he handles the track he will take a power of beating. Last time out he assumed control mid race and scored a commanding 37.47 Lismore win, the small field should suit tonight and he really does look to be a great bet.

Avondale Maurick was a solid 42.45 winner here two runs back and if he can find the bunny early he should give a great sight.

Pumped Up Zarr has the class edge and if he can cross from out wide he should be in the finish. He has won his past two here in impressive fashion but my concern with him is that he may be posted wide for most of the journey.

Greta’s Rescue is the only other winning hope, she finished strongly to score here last week in 42.27 and with a clear run in the middle stages she can run home into some minor money.

Interrogated has come up with the good draw and he was far from disgraced when placed here last week. He got a little tired in the run home last week but tonight I’m expecting him to get a much cheaper lead and that should allow him to finish the race off a little better.

Cawbourne Power doesn’t win very often here but he has been placed in 23 of 34 attempts, he is drawn poorly tonight but he should be finishing on strongly at the business end and I can easily see him filling a place again.

Bad Boy Sniper was solidly placed here last week and he should be in the mix again, there is a bit of speed around him but that should allow him to drop in behind early and hopefully a few gaps will open mid race.

Jack Kade is the only other winning prospect, he must lead to win but he has enough dash to cross and he could run a very cheeky race.

Lochinvar Impact is a super talent and he should make up for a luckless effort here last time out. He normally begins well and with the wide running Marlow Man drawn on his outer he should get all the breaks as they head into the first turn. He has a sizzling 29.78 PB here and if he finds the bunny early he should be able to probably go a tad quicker.

Can Of is blessed with enormous talent and he had no luck when resuming from a spell at Richmond last time out. He has run 5.32 and 5.31 to the first marker here previously and if he can reproduce those type of sectionals he will take a power of beating.

Zipping Oscar has won two of four here and he appears to be improving with every run, the draw doesn’t suit tonight but he can muster pace quickly and if he can settle in the top three he will run a big race.

Asia’s Babe smashed a handy lineup at Gosford last time in 34.52 and she races well here, she will be looking to get wide early but if she gains a clear run she can make an impact.

Recruitment has come up with the good draw and he showed his true talent when posting a sizzling 29.74 win here last week, if he can step cleanly like he did last time he will prove extremely hard to hold out. There doesn’t appear to be much speed directly on his outside so he should be afforded a relatively clear run early.

Zipping Abby really turned heads last week with her breathtaking 29.66 heat win, if she does that again then she will finish in the top two for sure but tonight there is plenty of speed drawn on her outside so she will need a few things to go her way.

La Grand Logie has the speed to lead and he is getting stronger with every run, he must lead to win but of all the competitors he appears to be the one with the most genuine early pace.

Shady Rhino will be charging home at the end and if he can lob behind Recruitment early he should be able to run home into a place.

Addison Road wasn’t overly impressive on the clock here last week but she appears to have the class edge here and if she can avoid early bother she will prove very hard to beat. Her box manners aren’t great but she does muster speed quickly and she has terrific track sense. When given a clear run she is probably capable of getting down to 29.70ish and that would be more than enough to win this.

Cawbourne Rev appears to be the likely leader and she has been placed in all five tries here, there doesn’t appear to be much speed around her so she should get every chance to drive through at the first bend.

Lady Ronray has won 14 of 17 and she should match motors with Cawbourne Rev early, this is a big rise in class for her and her last 40m isn’t overly strong, she will need to lead clearly and I think place hopes look best.

Joane powered to the line in her heat win and she looks a great place hope again, she is likely to settle too far back to win but she could be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Great race and Zipping Willow and Anything Less should have a great battle again. Zipping Willow was disappointing here last week but this race tonight lacks early speed so I can see her getting a very cheap lead and she may just get too far in front of Anything Less in the early stages. She has won 17 of 23 here and she is normally faultless early, so if she steps she should get the job done.

Anything Less is possibly one of the fastest chasers in the land and he just keeps on turning in big efforts here. He has gone around the 29.60 mark on five or six occasions here and if he avoids early trouble he will be right there at the finish.

Bessy Boo is the only other genuine winning hope, he is another who excels here and he will be steaming home at the end.

Watto Lotto can sneak into a place, he is well drawn near the inside and he is another who runs out the journey strongly.

Wide open affair and I think we can find some value with the well drawn Inner City. Three starts ago he beat a classy lineup here in 30.01 and if he can begin well and settle in the top four early he will be very strong in the run to the line.

Soaring Eagle is drawn to hold the early lead and he has scored some smart wins here in the past. With wide runners drawn on his outside he may be able to zip away early and he may steal the prize.

Knocka’s Return is an enormous talent and if he is switched on he will play a major role, the concern with him is that he doesn’t really race that well here and he can make some mistakes early in his races.

Take It All is a class act and if he can get out into some open spaces through the first bend he can salute at nice odds, he will need a few things to go his way but he is more than capable.

To A Tee is an exciting prospect and he appears to be going from strength to strength. Last time out he overcame plenty of trouble in running to post a strong 30.22 Dapto win and prior to that he turned in a big effort here behind the talented Lucy Lobster.

Barney’s Rhino posted a slick 30.59 Richmond win two runs back and if he gets room in the early stages he should be there to pounce off the back straight. I would prefer him drawn closer to the rail but he has enough natural speed to get across.

Locksmith has been placed in his only three tries here and he must be included in your exotics again, he is likely to get too far back to win but it might be worth anchoring him for third and fourth in your exotics.

Black Bronco is another who doesn’t win often but is never far away, he has been placed in six of 11 here and he has strong place prospects again.

Considering it is a maiden final to kick off the night, there is a fair bit of depth in this event and there should be some good ones come out of it.

West On Delly was probably the most impressive of the heat winners. Last week she pinged the lids and reeled off sizzling sectionals before stopping the clock in a zippy 30.08. If she can turn in a similar performance tonight it’s hard to see anything being able to match motors with her.

Angel Of Music is another who is armed with early speed and she is bursting to break through, last week she reeled off a similar first section to my top pick but her run home time wasn’t as good. If she can settle in the top two she should have enough in the tank to hold on for a place.

Opec Bale is a the run on type in the event and he looks to have great staying prospects for the future, last week he overcame a few difficulties in running before charging home to score in 30.29. He is going to need a few things to go his way but if the gaps open he will be there at the finish.

Deborah Lee is in good hands and she could be an improving type also, she is well bred and she trialled well before her debut here last week.

Remote Control comes here with strong NSW form and he has shown that when he gets room in the early stages he can really motor. From the pink draw he should get a clear passage early and if he can balance up quickly he should be able to find the front as they enter the first bend. He has some quick Wentworth Park wins to his credit so if he finds the bunny he will prove hard to reel in.

Udon Bale is a bit of a gunner, but he has turned in some strong efforts of late and from the red he is drawn to get all the breaks. He takes a few strides to get going but if he can punch through and settle in the top four he should be running over the top of them late in the race.

Hashtag Selfie is improving with every run and she looked impressive in her all the way 30.21 win here last time. If she finds the early lead she should give a great sight again.

Red Superman is poorly drawn but he has plenty of gears, if he is allowed to muster speed in the first 50m he should be able to put himself into the race.

This race features a number of runners who must lead to win and I think King Surfa should win the battle to the first turn and that should allow him to snag the winners prize. Last week he made his 525m debut and after a steady getaway he mustered speed quickly and led for most of the journey. He should be much better for that run and if he finds the bunny early he should be much stronger in the run to the line.

Bottom Dollar is highly talented when on song and he should be able to follow King Surfa across in the first 50m, if he can get through the first turn unscathed and settle within four of King Surfa he should give the leader plenty to think about.

Trail Blazing is very hard to follow but he has the good draw and he is fairly strong in the run to the line, if he can avoid bother he should give a nice sight.

Zeppelin Bale has won two of five here and he has enough early dash to be a competitor, my only concern with him is that King Surfa and Topper Road might carve him up in the early stages.

Heaps Of Ability can be costly at times but this is the weakest event he has contested for some time. He loves to scout wide in his races and his latest win came from a wide draw at Cranbourne. On that occasion he jumped well and reeled off great sectionals before posting a ridiculous 41.35. If he can repeat that type of performance tonight he is likely to put an absolute space in this lot.

Double Rinse turned in a huge performance when narrowly beaten by Blinkers On here two runs back. She can be a little hit or miss early but if she happens to get away and settle in the top three she should be right in the mix at the finish.

Echelonic Action has a tremendous record here over 600m and his failed attempts over this journey have been in Group Race company, from the red he should settle in a fairly prominent position and he will appreciate racing in this class.

Dyna Orion is the interesting runner, he is making his staying debut but his efforts over the middle distance of late suggest that this type of journey is right up his alley.

Good race and I think we can find some value with the talented Starc. Prior to hitting the deck last time, he had turned in some strong performances at Sandown and he finds himself in a suitable race tonight. I am expecting him to settle in the top two or three early and he should give a bold sight. You should be able to snag around the $6 mark and that is great value.

Lady Toy is a very strong chaser and she will be charging home at the business end. She is yet to win here in three tries here but she has been placed in two of those attempts. She is going to need a few breaks in running but she is the only genuine stayer in the event so she must be respected.

Seeking Justice is going to be very well supported and he is clearly a chance, however this is a big step up in class for him and he is no guarantee to run the trip right out.

Just Ducal is making his debut here but he has scored some strong Sandown Park wins, if he can handle the track he should run a big race.

Beckenbauer is racing in dazzling form of late and from the red draw he should be able to lead throughout. There is a little bit of speed drawn on his outside but he does posses a great turn of foot and with an even getaway he should be able to hold them out. He has a solid 30.26 PB here but he is a much faster chaser this time around and a sub 30 second run could be on the cards for him.

Kerrigan Bale is a very hard chaser to follow but she is blessed with explosive talent, she caught the eye with a strong 30.15 win here two runs back and with a good getaway she should figure prominently for most of the journey.

Zipping Bruno is a gun NSW chaser and he looked impressive when posting a strong 30.29 win here last week, he will need some luck in running but he is good enough to overcome a couple of difficulties in running.

Polly Bale rounds out the chances, she has a solid record here and she has shown in the past that she can run time when on the bunny.

Shall She Rock was desperately unlucky at Sandown Park last time and she should be ready to make amends tonight. From box three she should be able to lob onto the rails in the early stages and get a nice sit on Go Mobo, she is extremely strong in the run home and she should run over the top of them in the closing stages.

Go Mobo is drawn to hold the early lead and he should give a great sight. Last week the track was heavy on the inside so it will pay to forgive his effort as he appeared to get very tired. Tonight the surface on the inside should be good and I would expect him to finish the race off in stronger fashion.

Hession Boots loves racing here and he has scored two commanding wins here of late, he always needs a few things to go his way early but from the rails draw he should get every chance.

Perfect Tess is a fast chaser when she lands on the bunny and if she pings away she can give a great sight, my only concern is that she is poorly drawn and if she misses it away her chances of winning are gone.

9INGA BALE (NSW)[4]Res.1613830.30(4)S Collins (Lara)

Dyna Yemen is a star in the making and I think he is good enough to overcome the poor draw tonight. His box manners aren’t great but he does possess a dazzling turn of speed and if he gets room in the first 30m he should explode to the early lead. In early October he posted a blistering 29.87 win here and a similar performance would see him win tonight.

Empire Allen is a classy provincial sprinter and he has a good record here. From the pink draw he should get a clear run early and he has enough speed to cross. His last 30m may be a worry but if he carves them up early he may be able to build up a race winning lead mid race. Peloton Bale has won six of 17 here and he must always be respected, he can be slow to begin but he has great track sense and he always finds his way into the money. Crawf’s Bread has the good draw and he can show enough pace to hold them up, his past two runs have been below par but from the rails draw he should be able to regain some confidence.

Zipping Felix is a promising staying type and he looked super impressive when winning at Shepparton by 13 lengths in 37.48. He can show a little bit of speed in the early stages and if he settles in the top three early he should prove far too strong for this lot.

Bailey Rose has the good draw and she has been racing in consistent fashion. This is probably one of the weakest races she has contested for a while and if she can hold them out early she will prove hard to reel in.

Love Affair can be hard to follow at times but she has won here in a solid 42.95 previously. She is likely to be over the odds tonight so she might be worth a saver bet.

Big Kat rounds out the chances, she has been placed in six of 12 here and she is well placed in a wide draw.

Frank Furter is normally a very reliable beginner and he gave a great sight when placed here in fast time two runs back. There isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn underneath him and with a clean getaway he will have enough natural speed to cross them in the early stages. He isn’t overly strong in the run home but he should be running around the 30.10 mark on the lure and that would be enough for victory.

Maximum Lil is a class act when on song and it will pay to forgive her most recent form. She is suited by the rails draw and if she can sight the bunny early she is likely to give an improved effort.

We Are Geelong beat a classy lineup at Sandown Park five runs back in 29.81 and if he pings away he should prove very hard to reel in. His most recent racing has been done against open class sprinters so he should appreciate the drop in class.

He Isn’t Really could be the value, he is very strong and he has the ability to ping away, he is likely to be big odds but he is more than capable of matching it with this lot.

Kicking Rocks finally showed his true talents with a blistering 30.15 Cranbourne win last week, his box manners aren’t great but he has slow beginners drawn on either side so he should get a clear passage in the first 50m. He is making his debut here but I’m guessing connections would have trialled him here previously, so he should be able to handle the first turn.

Dyna Glinda is much better than her recent form suggests and if she is given a clear passage through the first turn she will prove hard to hold out. She has won here on two occasions previously and untouched she is capable of going sub 30 seconds.

Hot Whirl hit the line strongly when placed here last week and she shouldn’t be too far away again.

Zipping Tank rounds out the chances, five starts ago he posted an impressive 29.86 Wentworth Park win, if he can reproduce that form he should be right in the mix.

The Meadows Race 12 – 5th Grade – 525 metres – 10:54pm (VIC time)

Scintillating has recently rejoined the powerful Thompson kennel after an unsuccessful stint in NSW, after six weeks off I’m sure that his connections would have him cherry ripe for this assignment. Prior to going to NSW he was setting the provincial tracks here alight and he also scored a devastating win at Sandown. With a clear run early he should make light work of this lineup.

Tekki Minx has the good draw and she posted a strong placing here last week, from the red she should be able to settle in a much more prominent position and she should be in the finish.

Dyna Norfolk was never headed in his handy 29.78 Sandown Park win and if he finds the bunny early he could give a nice sight.

Dyna Chaser had no luck here last week and he should show improvement, he has won four of 13 here and he only needs an ounce of luck to feature.

Top Four: 7 – 1 – 3 – 8

2014 Group One Melbourne Cup Is Dyna Villa’s http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-melbourne-cup-is-dyna-villas/58249 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-melbourne-cup-is-dyna-villas/58249#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:17:23 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=58249 Dyna Villa (8) has taken out the Group One Melbourne Cup in style, carving across from box eight to streak away for a two length victory in 29.36 at Sandown Park on Friday night.

The Collision and Roxio Bale (Droopy’s Vieri – Francesca Bale) dog came into the race unbeaten at the track. He had also never had his colours lowered wearing the pink stretch vest.

The money had been coming for Dyna Villa all day and at box-rise he was just shy of starting as the favourite. That honour went to Keybow (1) who punters had supported well due to the prime rails draw.

Dyna Villa forged out a fast first section of 5.04 to lead clearly into the first bend, just ahead of NSW bitch Chica Destacada (2). Rounding the turn, there was a little bit of interference between Above All (3) and Luca Neveelk (7), which left space for Keybow to hunt up along the rail into third.

Down the back, Dyna Villa got out to a six length lead and at this stage it was clear we were looking at this year’s Melbourne Cup winner. Chica Destacada tried her heart out, maintaining second position and pocketing connections $120,000 while Keybow filled the last of the minors.

Dyna Villa, trained by Jenny Hunt, has now won his first Group race. Prior to the Melbourne Cup, he had made the final of the Group 2 Geelong Cup. The generous prize-money of $420,000 takes his earnings over $460,000. He has just turned two years of age and the big win takes his career record to 15 wins from 23 starts. He looks to be the next star for the famous Wheeler family and little wonder given he is closely related to the recently retired Xylia Allen.

Sweet It Is Takes Out 2014 Bold Trease http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/sweet-it-is-takes-out-2014-bold-trease/58247 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/sweet-it-is-takes-out-2014-bold-trease/58247#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:14:47 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=58247 She has done it again.

The bitch that trainer Darren McDonald described post race as a “Bold Trease re-incarnated” unleashed her trademark run home to clinch the 2014 Group One Bold Trease at Sandown at Sandown Park on Friday night.

A clear run in transit is always the key for the daughter of Mogambo and Off Springer (Flying Penske – Skullring) and, while she was slightly hampered leaving the home straight the first time, she could not of asked for a much better trip.

Ever the consummate professional, Sweet It Is took full advantage of the uninhibited run home to give the early leaders a cold and storm away to salute by a cool 5 1/2 lengths in a rapid 41.56.

After leaving the boxes reasonably well, Sweet It Is settled in seventh place as Zipping Maggie (2) took the ascendency, leading from Space Star (4).

Halfway down the back straight, Space Star took over and looked a big hope. Sweet It is began her move as the field passed the 715 metre boxes and made ground in a hurry.

Swinging for home, that familiar lightning turn of foot was as evident as ever as the 28kg black bitch hooked to the outside and put paid to her rivals in the twinkling of an eye en route to her fourth Group One victory.

Space Star hung on for second placing with rank outsider Reap The Benefit (5) working home for third placing.

Of the beaten brigade, excuses could not really be made for any of the runners with the winner simply too good and interference reasonably minimal.

The win was Sweet It Is’ 15th from 47 career outings and sees her career earnings reach a whopping $584,065.

Dyna Villa Aims Up For Wheeler Glory In The Melbourne Cup http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/dyna-villa-aims-up-for-wheeler-glory/58244 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/dyna-villa-aims-up-for-wheeler-glory/58244#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 06:10:02 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=58244 The world’s biggest race is about to take place and it wouldn’t be the same without the world’s biggest owner playing a significant hand. Paul Wheeler is in Melbourne to watch his young star Dyna Villa attempt to etch his name into the record books for trainer Jenny Hunt.

“I think the whole race revolves around the race to the turn. It’s a level field, although he is as quick as anything in the race he will need luck to the first turn. He is definitely an exciting young dog that’s shown a hell of a lot of promise”, explained Paul.

It’s a huge day on many levels for the Wheeler’s, with former superstar Irma Bale currently whelping a litter to American sire Yahoo Omar.

“It’s such a busy time of the year at the moment, with a lot of bitches whelping. Irma has just had her seventh pup to Yahoo Omar and there might be some more coming, she is a fantastic mum so far”, an excited Jan Wheeler stated from the Wheeler’s farm near Young.

“I love the whelping side of it. But it’s exciting to see the all the hard work pay off. Brendan broke Dyna Villa in and said he broke in super and always had a ton of talent, so it’s a real family effort. I’m not sure about the box eight draw, but we will have our fingers crossed up here.”

Speaking to Paul it’s hard not to take in the massive passion he has for the breeding side of his operation. It’s also obvious in discussion that the empire that’s been created by the Wheeler family is truly staggering.

“The mum of Dyna Villa is Roxio Bale and she’s a litter sister to Xylia Allen’s mother. So there is exceptional breeding from the dam’s side. We have had Xylia Allen and Dyna Willow retire recently, so the torch has been passed to Allen Deed and this dog. We have had some very good feedback on some of the Barcia pups, so that’s very exciting as well.”

When asked what he thought would happen tonight Paul provided the following thoughts.

“In front they will be flat out catching him, but there is a heap of pace out wide and any scrimmage will have him come out the worst from box eight.”

The future is definitely bright for this son of collision and the excitement from Paul is extremely evident.

“He looks like being really handy. To be only two years old and achieve what he has is fantastic. He’s done exceptionally well to get where he is at the age that he is. He’s the youngest dog in the field and to be the fastest qualifier is an enormous effort. He could end up being a very very good one, that’s for sure.”

Football fans are well accustomed to the saying “take it a week at a time” and in the case of greyhound racing it’s the perfect quote.

“We don’t have any plans moving forward. Take it one race at a time and see how they go. If they are fit and well then it’s up to the trainers to place the dogs to maximum effect.”

If there was a litter around that typified the highs and lows of the sport, the Collision – Roxio Bale litter would do a pretty good job.

“Hopefully Villa can carry the flag for Dyna Synch. He was put down after suffering from a broken leg at The Meadows in a horrible fall. He was a dog that was just starting to put it together and we had genuinely high hopes for him.”

Will It Be Lucky Number Seven For Awesome Project? http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/will-it-be-lucky-number-seven-for-awesome-project/58242 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/will-it-be-lucky-number-seven-for-awesome-project/58242#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 01:07:30 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=58242 Tonight is the night that we have all been waiting for. Tonight one star sprinter will be crowned the 2014 Melbourne Cup champion and one set of connections will walk away $420,000 richer.

Eight superb canines are ready to do battle. For most it will be a nerve-wracking experience, for Awesome Project it will just be like any other race.

The Darren McDonald- trained chaser knows a thing or two about racing at the elite level.

Tonight will be his seventh appearance at Group level where he will be chasing his third victory. 

The veteran of 55 starts has already tasted success in the Group Two Gosford Cup and the Group Two Harrison- Dawson with that all important Group One honour so far alluding him.

His closest finish at the highest level was last month where he finished a gallant third in the Group One Topgun at The Meadows.

His owner and former trainer Brad Canty knows just how special the son of Collision and Honour Phase is. Rarely putting in a bad performance, he goes into the Melbourne Cup as a winner of 28 races with 15 minor placings.

“He is very consistent and he has been consistent all the way through his career since I sent him down to Darren after the Gosford Cup. He has probably only had three weeks off this whole time and if you go right through his form and he has just about made all the big group finals”, Canty said.

“I don’t think I will ever own a better dog than him, not a more consistent one anyway. He is very reliable.”

Awesome Project was an all the way winner of his heat last week clocking a slick 29.39. While he loves the track at Sandown, where he is yet to miss a place from 13 starts, it will be a tough ask to claim the final jumping from box four.

“The draw is not good for him with the six, seven and eight going to be crashing across from out wide with pace.

“He has speared the lids and come out running a couple of times like when he won the Harrison- Dawson and in a heat of the Brisbane Cup he came up two in front, but I think whatever dog leads that race will probably win.

“They are all basically leaders in the race, he is probably the strongest dog in the race, but they are going to be running 29.3 so whatever dog goes to the front will be hard to run down.”



Canty, who is based in New South Wales, has made the trip to Melbourne to cheer on his charge.

While it is going to be a tough race, Awesome Project should never be discounted. 



“Luck is going to play a big part in it, you couldn’t have hand picked a better eight dogs for the race but if he can come out and hold his position to the first turn he will be a big chance.”


And for a rising four year old, a win in the sport’s most coveted feature could lock in a future career at stud.

“It’s the richest greyhound race in the world. I would love to win it for the dogs sake, if he wins this race his stud career is locked in, so it would mean a lot for me for the dog to win it.”
