Allen Illem exits a favourable draw and he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. Four starts ago he stormed home to win in 30.03 and he should figure prominently again. Van Carrho Flash comes here with strong NSW form and he has joined the powerful Troy Murray kennel. Velocity Daff won’t be far away also.

Premier Event missed the kick and didn’t have a lot of luck here on Monday night, tonight he should step a lot better and I would expect him to lead all the way. Wrex Bale is ideally drawn out wide and he has been racing in very consistent fashion. Yoda Bale is better than his recent form reads and he should get a nice sit in the early stages of the race.

Mepunga Hayley can be hard to follow at times but with an empty draw underneath she should get every chance to find the early lead. She has trialled here in 29.85 and under the right conditions she can probably get down to around the 29.55 mark.

Allen Deed is a super freak and he should prove hard to hold out based on his breathtaking 29.43 Wentworth Park win two runs back.

Campaspe Will has a big engine and if he can step cleanly he should get the cash, last start at Sandown he overcame early difficulties and he still managed to stop the clock in a sizzling 29.45. Texas Titan is very consistent and he recently won her in a smart 29.77, he will be charging home late and he only needs an ounce of luck.

Oakvale Destiny is all class and she will prove hard to hold out based on her brilliant 29.69 win here recently, she can be slow to begin but she works her way through a field with ease. Clash Of Kings recently trialled here in a smart 29.77 and he is racing in devastating form. He musters pace very quickly and he may give a great sight on the bunny.

Aston Kane is a brilliant beginner and he has won here previously in a dazzling 29.57, he should have enough speed to hold them out and he should prove too zippy. Ollie Bale is drawn to get a nice sit on Aston Kane early and he has won numerous races in this type of class. Gimme Fuel is in great form and he only needs an ounce of luck early to feature.

Ernie Bung Arrow Shoots For SA Glory http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/ernie-bung-arrow-shoots-for-sa-glory/56600 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/ernie-bung-arrow-shoots-for-sa-glory/56600#comments Thu, 02 Oct 2014 03:36:32 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56600 If a week’s a long time in football, then a year is an eternity in greyhound racing. No dog’s story can prove this more than South Australian legend Ernie Bung Arrow.

Ernie was the hero of Angle Park in 2013 and his group race assault at Angle Park kicked off with the 2013 Group Three SA Derby in September. Next on the radar was the 2013 Group One Adelaide Cup, a title that Ernie will be trying to defend this year, starting with tonight’s heat. The final group win for Ernie was the 2013 Group Three Brian Johnstone Memorial.

After the win in the Brian Johnstone memorial the freak sprinter went on to win his next four starts. But from there it was all bad news. Ernie had his first serious injury early in 2014.

“I was just getting him ready to go back to Kel Greenough for the Temlee and he injured his his wrist. He had two chips and a crack in the wrist. We removed the two chips and had to plaster the crack, which put him out for a long time”, explained trainer Ken Gill.

“He was out for months and then when we were bringing him back he hit a fence and hurt himself again.”

“Then he hurt a monkey muscle at Kim’s and got kennel cough, it’s been one thing after another.”

With one run over the 388m at Angle Park since January the obvious question is how will the champion go in his return to big time racing.

“He can’t be 100% but will go ok. He won’t disgrace himself and I think he can just about lead. We just don’t know how far off his best he is though. We haven’t had him over the 500 in those periods, but his box to box and post to post efforts have been good with excellent sectionals on his own.”

“The dog is a couple of run’s short and the last 50m might tell tonight. Another two to three weeks and we would have been right. I wouldn’t have got him this far and he wouldn’t be where he is today without the help of Kim Johnstone however. Although she didn’t race him, she has played a huge part. I definitely wouldn’t have him in this series tonight without all the hard work that Kim put in.”

Tonight and the future will be a waiting game for Ernie’s connections, but they are still hoping that he can reach the level of his past glory.

“We are on the list for the Topgun and it’s a possibility. But I think we will have a crack at the Melbourne Cup if he stay’s sound and we can get him back to the level he was at before.”

Jonathon’s Hope is blessed with blinding early speed and if he can reproduce the effort which saw him win here in 30.08 four runs back he will take a power of beating. Farmer’s Gold has the class edge but his box manners can let him down at times, with an ounce of luck early he will be right in the mix.

Not Held has the good draw and with a clean getaway he should prove far too classy for this lot. He has won four of eight over this trip and he has been placed in the other four tries. Golfing Amy was a tad unlucky here last week, in late August she scored two sub 35 second wins here and she should be a major player throughout.

Cyndie’s Special is a track specialist and she should prove hard to run down based on her brilliant 29.91 win here two runs back. She leads more often than not and this really looks her race. Yogi Blue is another consistent chaser and he recently trialled here in 30 flat. Chariot’s Offiah has loads of talent but he tends to struggle from wider draws, he can feature with an ounce of luck.

Flash Reality is one of the fastest chasers on the planet and with an ounce of luck early he should gap this lot. He showed he is back to his best with a blistering 29.70 win here last week. Miner’s Moss should have enough speed to hold them out and he should give a great sight, he isn’t strong on enough to win but he can fill the quinella spot.

Farmor Las Vegas has won here previously in a slick 29.85 and he is all class, with the wide running Placid Planet drawn on his outer, he should get every chance in the early stages. Placid Planet has been flying of late but the draw is against him tonight, if he somehow gets a clear passage early he will be right in the mix. Winged Elite has a great record here and he must be respected at odds.

Happy Haswell just keeps on winning and he will prove hard to beat based on his breathtaking 29.64 win here two runs back. He is quite reliable early and he should make light work of this line-up. Give You Credit is never far away in his races and he has enough speed to find the early lead, if he goes around at silly odds he may be worth an each way ticket.

Seven heats of the $75,000 to-the-winner race will be conducted tonight.

The recent SA Oaks (Oakvale Destiny) and Derby (Iva Vision) winners will each contest a heat.

Here’s a look at the best chances in each heat.

Heat One – Race 3 at 7:25pm

The first heat opens with impressive Derby winner Iva Vision (8) who has the same box as he did in the Derby final. In that particular event he streaked away for a six length win in 29.57. He has been kept fresh since and with two wins from just the two starts at the track he clearly looks the one to beat.

Drawn next to Iva Vision is local chance Genghis Kahn (7). He has four wins from the box seven draw and has compiled nine wins at the tracks with 29.68 his best. He has won his last two and has been in good form prior to that.

Despite an indifferent performance in the SA Oaks final, Mepunga Hayley can never be dismissed. This year’s Group One Maturity winner is yet to record a win at Angle Park from two starts. She is having her first run out of the green rug and connections will be hoping she begins a bit better than the last time she raced at Angle Park.

The consistent Musquin Bale (3) looks well drawn near the fence. If he gets any sort of luck in running he is a chance. This is his first race start at Angle Park. He arrives in SA with 17 wins from 60 starts and he has been a Group race winner and finalist.

Heat Two – Race 4 at 7:44pm

A fortnight ago, Allen Deed (1) whizzed around Wentworth Park in the heats of the Group Two Bob Payne Stakes, stopping the clock at 29.43. He finished sixth in the final from a bad draw but for these heats he has drawn perfectly in box one. The Jarvis Bale and Greta Bale (Where’s Pedro – Gold Rush Bale) dog has not raced at Angle Park previously but he does have 17 wins from 39 starts so he knows how to find his way to the line.

Wind Whistler (2) was the runner-up behind Iva Vision in the SA Derby. He has taken to Angle Park really well with two wins and one placing from three starts. He is never a factor early on in races but he is very strong so watch his finish. He can’t be discounted based on his form at the track.

Galilee Spirit (7) will provide some hope for the locals. He has won his last four including a fourth grade event last week in 29.81. He has been beginning faultlessly and has a load of early speed so that will bring him right into the race. He also has six wins from box seven.

Another local with a bit of speed is Proven Juddy (5). He won at Gawler last start leading all the way. In his last five starts he hasn’t won at Angle Park over the 515m distance. His record at track is seven from 18 with a best of 29.69. He needs to be on top of his game to overcome the draw.

Heat Three – Race 5 at 8:08pm

This is a hard race with a number of chances. Campaspe Will (1) hasn’t drawn the red for a while so it will be interesting to see how goes. He has won three of his last five around The Meadows and Sandown and can run time on his day. This is his first race start at Angle Park.

Kalden Gambino (2) has nine wins at the track. The Lochinvar Marlow and Abbadale Affair (Big Daddy Cool – Sprinkles Of Gold) dog has a best of 29.70 and is good from an inside draw. He finished third in the SA Derby last year behind Ernie Bung Arrow.

Texas Titan (3) impressively won a heat of the SA Derby in 29.77 and subsequently finished third in the final. He will need some luck early as he likes to use a bit of the track. He possesses a strong finish.

National Time (5) has won four of his last five around Warrnambool, Sandown and Ballarat. He has good early speed but a poor record from box five, with just one win from eight attempts.

Heat Four – Race 6 at 8:28pm

SA Oaks winner Oakvale Destiny (5) lines up from box five. She was impressive throughout the Oaks series, winning the final in 29.69. She just needs to repeat that to take out this heat.

Crusade Marjen (4) has been quietly plying his trade in Victoria. The Enry Walt and Katathani (Brett Lee – Xanadu Dancer) dog has won 10 from 16 but has been predominantly racing over the shorter distances. He is fast early but is facing a rise in class and is coming against some experienced chasers.

Clash Of Kings (6) recently won the Group Three Darwin Cup. The lightly raced chaser has had just 13 starts for eight wins. He came to Angle Park in late September for a trial in which he recorded 29.77.

Two local chasers Dustnado (7) and Punishment (8) will battle it out from the wide draw. Both are last start winners at the track and have each won multiple times at the track and distance.

Heat Five – Race 7 at 8:52pm

Aston Kane’s (1) run in the SA Derby final can be wiped from memory as he suffered interference very early on and wasn’t able to overcome that. He has this draw for the first time in his career and coming into this race has 14 wins from 17 starts including eight at Angle Park. He should go well.

Gimme Fuel (4) is more than capable on his day. He is a winner of 16 races on Victorian tracks and will be having his first start at Angle Park. He won at Sandown in 29.44 two starts back and will just need to handle the track to be up there.

Ollie Bale (2) is a multiple Group race finalist that has been fairly quiet in his last five starts with just the one win. If he gets near the lead he will be hard to stop but he just has to overcome the pace of Aston Kane on his inside.

Heat Six – Race 8 at 9:11pm

Local hero Ernie Bung Arrow (8) takes centre stage in the sixth heat. The Lochinvar Marlow and Slipper’s Tonic (Bond – Slipper’s Gin) dog has won his last seven races (even though they have been dispersed over the last year as he had a long spell between January and September) and has a perfect record of three from three from box eight. He won this race last year and has gone a best of 29.55 at the track.

Sidney’s Shadow (3) had an unfortunate fall at his last start at the track but the experienced racer should bounce back well. He has won 13 races at Angle Park and is well boxed on the inside. His best time of 29.56 was recorded back in February this year.

Maximum Lil (4) is a well performed Victorian bitch from the Dailly kennel. She has won two of her last three and possesses a strong finish. Overall she has won 11 from 37. The draw is a worry for her first start at the track.

Especially (5) was a recent runner in the heats of the Group Three Canberra Cup, finishing third behind track-record-breaker My Bro Fabio. She had a run here at Angle Park last week, finishing fourth in a FFA event. She will likely be improved from that run but has a task ahead of her from the ordinary draw.

Heat Seven – Race 9 at 9:35pm

This is a another tough heat and is the final heat of the big Group One.

Footluce Diva (1) cannot be faulted on her recent performances. She won her heat of the SA Oaks and then finished second in the final behind her sister Oakvale Destiny. She won again last week in 29.79 from this box and was close to the lead.

Kalden Balerion (2) has won 10 from 27 including five wins at the track. He has been racing very consistently and will enjoy being drawn close to the fence.

Crackerjak Dak (3) finished third in the heats of the Group Two Bob Payne Stakes at his last start behind eventual winner of the series, Tommy Brislane. Crackerjak Dak was the Victorian finalist in this year’s National Sprint, finishing fourth in the National final at Cannington. If he gets on the bunny he will be hard to catch.

Another National Sprint finalist is drawn in box five. Wild Soul (5) was South Australia’s representative in the series. He has won 16 races at the track for a best of 29.79.

Emerley Senorita (8) impressed by winning a heat of the SA Oaks from this draw in 29.85. She finished third in the final and will be looking to give a good account of herself in this race.

Hellyeah Bolt (4) has won 25 from 48. The Tasmanian chaser has had his last two starts at Angle Park for a second and a fourth. He raced at the track in September last year and recorded a win in 29.76. He has won four times wearing the blue rug.

The seven heat winners and the fastest second will progress through to next week’s s final, which will be held on Friday, 10 October.

Bowl ‘Em Out showed a brilliant turn of foot soon after box rise when on debut here last week and he set the pace for most of the trip before being gunned down in the shadows of the post. With a good getaway tonight he should find the early lead again and he should be able to find the line a little better tonight.

Weston East ran down Bowl ‘Em Out here last week when scoring in a smart 29.59, he is obviously going to prove hard to hold out again but from the wide draw he may get posted a little wide in the early stages. Aces And Angels was airborne in the early stages of her 29.77 heat win, on that occasion she broke five seconds to the first marker and she should be a lot better for the run overall. Vernon Bale rounds out the chances, he has been placed in seven of eight starts to date and he is drawn to be in a prominent position throughout.

Very good race and I think we can find some value in the wide draws. Above All is going to start a short priced favourite off the red but there is plenty of early speed drawn out wide and he may get shuffled back early on. Polly Bale has the speed to cross early and prior to her top placing here last week she posted a dazzling all the way win at The Meadows in a very zippy 30.01. She should get a nice cart across in the early stages and at the $6 mark she is good value.

Scanez Cee has recorded three brilliant placings here in a row and prior to that he had posted back to back wins here over the 515m and 595m journeys. He should match motors with Polly Bale in the early stages and he appears to be improving time wise with every run. He is likely to be around the $8 mark and it may be worth backing them both straight out. Agent Jack is a gun chaser and he should improve on his luckless Warragul effort when resuming from a spell. He can be hit or miss early but if he gets some room in the first 50m he should make a big impact. Above All is a star in the making and he is clearly a winning chance, my only concern is that he is going to start at short odds and he will need everything to go his way in the early stages.

Hailstorm Billy has been a tad disappointing in his past three starts but he is stepping back up to a more suitable journey and he is drawn to get all the breaks. He has won two races over this journey previously and he boasts an impressive 34.25 PB, with a couple of keen railers drawn directly underneath, he should get a nice cart across in the first 50m and that will allow him to settle in a prominent position.

Dyna Orion has a heap of talent and if he can find the rail in the early stages he will take a power of beating, the only knock on him is that he is normally slow to begin and he will need a few things to go his way in the first 50m. Conquer Fear is having his first try over this distance range and he has given every indication that he should have no trouble covering the extra distance. He has scored some slick wins in his brief career and if he found the bunny early he is likely to give a great sight at nice odds. Smart Maxwell has a great record at The Meadows over this distance range and he should be in the mix for a long way, he is likely to be under the odds but he must be included in your exotic bets.

Dyna Perseus is a dead set money muncher and it looks like he is going to suck me in again. I sound like a broken record but this bloke is a super talent when things go his way and this really looks his race. He should be able to settle in the first two or three early and I would expect him to assume control as they pass the post the first time. I would love to see him land on the bunny as I reckon he would be able to post a ridiculous time.

Ima Fairytale loves racing at this track and she has posted three impressive wins in a row over middle distances. This is her first crack at the 700m journey but in her last start 650m Warrnambool win she appeared to hit the line with a fair bit in reserve. Little Red could be the value in the event, her recent form is terrible but she did have strong NSW credentials before crossing to Victoria. Echelonic Action rounds out the chances, he is racing in consistent and career best form and with a clear run in the first 50m he should be able to make his presence felt.

Enchanted Bling is a highly promising prospect and she is making her staying debut tonight. In recent weeks she has scored a strong finished win here over 515m and an all the way win over 595m. Her 595m Victory was super impressive as she hit the line with plenty in hand and she also posted an impressive time of 34.23. There is always some doubt about running out the journey but she gives every indication she can handle it.

Allen Wake was far from disgraced when placed here last week over this journey and this appears to be a drop in class for him, he should settle in the top three early and he is quite strong in the run to the line. Just Ducal caught my eye in his last start placing at Cranbourne, after getting a long way back early he hit the line very hard and was taking a lot of ground off the classy Shall She Rock in the closing stages.

Shot To Bits recently beat the likes of Xylia Allen, Sweet It Is and Zipping Maggie in a Group Three Event at The Meadows and he should have little trouble in accounting for a grade five field tonight. He does meet the talented Blinkers On but I think he will have his measure. Last Saturday night he gave a couple of those staying stars a head start and a beating and he appears to be the real deal.

Blinker’s On is the obvious danger and he should fill the quinella spot. His effort last week when placed behind Flying Twist was very impressive and he has scored some blistering wins in his brief career, he can make a lot of mistakes in his races and that is why Shot To Bits has the edge. Beks is a strong finisher and he has been placed in two of his three tries over this journey, I dont like his winning chances but he is a great dog to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets. Love Affair, could be the value in the event, she is showing staying promise and she appears perfectly placed in the pink draw. If she happens to cross and lead she will definitely give them something to catch.

Bailey Rose has been racing against some of the nation’s most elite stayers of late and after having been placed in two of her three tries here she deserves to break through. In late August she turned in two great performances over this journey and although she hasn’t won since then, she appears to be a much better stayer now. She should be able to cross from her wide draw and I would expect her to dictate the terms from the outset.

Smouldering Doll has been placed in her past five starts and she appears to be a chaser that can run all day, if she can get out into some open space early she should be a major player for the entire trip. Can Can Hurricane should settle near the speed and he will appreciate the drop in class, he can be hard to follow at times but he has turned in some strong performances at The Meadows over a similar journey. Velocemente rounds out the winning hopes, he is making his staying debut and although his racing pattern indicates that he should run out the journey, I’m still not convinced he is a genuine staying type.

Dyna Ostrander has been desperately unlucky in recent weeks and I expect him to regain some confidence and return to the winners list tonight. Two starts ago he was about to lead the SA Derby Final before he was dragged down, if he didn’t get dragged down, I have no doubts that he would have captured that final. There isn’t a whole heap of speed drawn underneath tonight and with a clean getaway he should have enough natural speed to cross.

Lamia Bale has the good draw and she has been racing in great style of late, two starts ago she posted an impressive 29.92 Meadows win when leading all the way and a similar effort tonight would see her feature in the finish. Go Mobo is unbeaten in two tries here and his 29.38 PB makes him a major player, the box draw doesn’t help tonight but he does muster speed very quickly in his races and if he can settle in the top three early he should be in the finish. Zipping Snoopy is well placed in the pink and prior to his past two defeats he did score a strong 30.13 Meadows win from this draw.

Crowdza Captive has only won two times from 23 attempts over this journey, however she has been placed a further 14 times. Her biggest assets are her great box manners and blinding early speed, with slow beginners drawn either side tonight she should get every chance to cross and lead again and it has taken three class acts to run her down in her past three starts here.

Gorham Bale has been placed in his past eight starts and if he is given some clear galloping room mid race he is sure to make his presence felt. The only knock on him is that he is normally slow to begin and he tends to find bother in his races. Bayman Bale has the good draw and he was far from disgraced when placed here last week, from the red he should be able to hold a forward spot early and he may run a big race at good odds. Kiltah Magic is going to be well supported but I’m not convinced about her winning chances, she has a tendency to miss the kick at times and from the middle pin she may get shuffled back in the early stages.

Lady Goldenpaw is a faultless beginner and I can easily see her crossing and carving up the field in the early stages. She has won here previously in a zippy 29.68 and if she cuts across early she may be able to create enough separation for her to be able to steal the prize.

Rumbling Rick is dropping in class tonight and he should get a nice cart across in the early stages. He has been a little off his game of late but with the class drop he should be able to regain some confidence and make a big impact, however being a Dmac trained chaser, he is likely to be under the odds. Duchess Bale is a very hit or miss early chaser but when she hits she is always hard to hold out, three starts ago she beat a strong field when posting a sizzling 34.21 victory here over 595m. Waymore Blues is the only other winning hope, like Duchess Bale his chances are decided soon after box rise, if he gets away on terms he is a monster chance.

Jewel Bale is another one of those money munchers but like Dyna Perseus earlier in the night, this really looks to be her race. With a blistering 29.32 PB here, she clearly has the class edge and only bad luck will beat her tonight, again. She has been missing the kick in her most recent efforts but that should help her tonight as there is a fair bit of speed drawn around her and that should allow her to find the rails soon after the start.

Soho Rhythm is well placed out wide and she was far from disgraced when placed here last week, she loves racing over this track and trip and if she can settle in the top two she will take a power of beating. Highbury could be the value in the event, two months ago he was airborne and he posted some impressive wins, he hasn’t had much luck since then but I expect him to show some improvement tonight. Strange Wish is a strong place hope in the event, he rarely wins these days but he is never far away and he may be a nice price for the place.

Allen Icarus is racing in great style at present he should go back to back after scoring a well deserved 30.28 Meadows win last week. He is a very reliable beginner and he appears to be getting stronger and stronger with every run. He should have no trouble crossing and he will prove hard to run down as he should be able to get down to the 29.60 mark.

Dyna Fancy is another reliable beginner and she should match motors with Allen Icarus for most of the journey. She races well in this company and there isn’t a whole heap of early speed drawn underneath tonight. Her Highness is a classy Tasmanian chaser and she has recently joined the strong Bravo kennel, if she can handle the track at her first look she should be right in the mix.

Standing Their Ground – Can The S.A. Brigade Keep The Cup At Home http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/standing-their-ground-can-the-s-a-brigade-keep-the-cup-at-home/56573 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/standing-their-ground-can-the-s-a-brigade-keep-the-cup-at-home/56573#comments Wed, 01 Oct 2014 10:24:04 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56573 It’s been twelve months since Ken Gill and Ernie Bung Arrow sent an entire state into a frenzy by winning South Australia’s only Group 1 feature. Now that the locals have got that winning feeling over their Eastern rivals, they’ve nominated again in heavy numbers for the 2014 version in an attempt to keep the treasured prize on home soil.

There were only five heats in last year’s Adelaide Cup series, however the depth of South Australian racing has increased noticeably since that time and now seven heats have been penned for Thursday nights’ bumper card.

The good news for locals is that Ernie is back to defend the title and has been given his favourite box in heat six. Having missed the majority of 2014 through injury, questions will still be asked if Ken Gill’s star performer is ready for the occasion. It was reported early in the month that Ernie Bung Arrow was going to bypass the Cup heats, but after the dog’s first up win over 388 metres, plans seemed to have changed.

The good news is that if he comes out running like usual, there aren’t too many dogs in the race that possess the strength the run him down. Maybe only Especially and Mepunga Armagh would be able to sit second and beat Ernie home, but on the flip side, there are plenty of dogs that can set a nippy early sectional. In other words, coming over from a wide draw might not be as easy as it has been in other races and without much of a preparation, the expectations might be a bit high on the reigning champ.

By the time that comes around though, there could already be several S.A runners through to the final, with many of them given good draws or hitting peak form.

In the fifth heat for example, there are four local chasers and all are in with a live chance. Aston Kane has become a bit of a Monday night specialist, but has an imposing overall record and a slashing best time of 29.57. His last start in the Derby final can be forgotten, as he missed the kick and was never given a crack at the leaders. His form leading into that was top notch and amazingly he has never started from box one. He gets the cherry now at the right time and looks a great chance to lead all the way.

Valladares lines up in box eight in the same race and poses the biggest threat to Aston Kane. His first step is never flash, but no dog musters speed faster than the Lauren Harris trained youngster. For those that didn’t see it, take a look at his win from the 14th of August and you’ll see why he will loom large using the room given to him here. He is expected to be good odds considering that Musquin Bale and Mepunga Hayley will take a lot of the interstate money.

Wedged between those two will be Farmeroo who always shows early dash, while Dakota Premier will be on the rails coming home as hard as any.

Early speed will certainly be an asset in the second heat also, where Galilee Spirit is looking for five wins straight. Bob Isaacson’s brindle speedster has been pinging out of the boxes in the past month and has gone sub-30 in his last three starts. With little speed around him, Galilee Spirit is the obvious leader and will take a power of beating, especially if Allen Deed takes out a few on the first bend exiting box one.

In saying that, Galilee Spirit has been beaten as favourite before and doesn’t put up much of a fight if unable to lead. He’ll need to be taken on trust, but this does look a favourable scenario though given the dynamics of the race.

Proven Juddy and Sporting Tears are the only other S.A chasers engaged, but both appear delicately placed in middle boxes. Proven Juddy is a talented chaser and a winner of 20 races and likes room to move in the early stages. If given that luxury, he will be hard to catch if he can find the bunny.

Nebula represents another great chance for a South Aussie victory in the third heat, especially after his brilliant win over Valladares last Thursday. Admittedly, Nebula doesn’t always jump out quite as well as that and will need some luck to get into the race from box eight, but does know how to win and can run enough time to win a Cup heat.

Kalden Gambino also looms as a great bet in heat three, with Campaspe Will and Texan Titan alongside who are traditionally slow out. He also adores the rails, with nine wins from 13 starts from the inside two boxes. Set The Scene for Laurence Cahalan is the total opposite and will revel on the outside and run on strong. Must include him in the multiples.

State sprint champion, Wild Soul looks to have a hard job to overcome his Victorian Nationals counterpart, Crackerjak Dak. This task will be made particularly difficult exiting from box five with many other runners placed where they want to be. Footluce Diva has come of age the past month and has the red rug where it has won four from five. Kalden Balerion is next door and boasts a 29.75 best time, while Emerley Senorita had a great Derby series, when it made the final from the same box it has here.

The rest of the local brigade appear to have their work cut out, but from those capable of causing an upset, look for Genghis Kahn in heat one or Punishment in heat four. Genghis Kahn has built a reputation as a 600-metre specialist, but put together a great run over the 515 last week for Kathleen Johnstone. While the time on that occasion was only average, he does have a best of 29.68 which would go close in any race. The challenge for Genghis Kahn is keeping close enough to the pack from a wide draw in order to throw down a challenge in the final 200 metres.

Punishment will get a lovely card into the race outside Dustnado who pings out. Punishment was beaten on Monday night, but likes the outside draws and has a good second section. He will need some interference behind in order to hold off the final charge of Oakvale Destiny and Heidi Go Seek, but will be good odds and represents value.

The seven heats are races three to nine on Thursday night and kick off at 7:55pm local time. The Adelaide Cup final is being run on a Friday for the first time, and will take place on October 10.

It’s able to make its own pace – it can adjust to what the others do – it’s not subject to interference – and so on.

Dogs are similar but different and we had a classic example the other day.

My Bro Fabio had roared around the tricky Canberra first turn to take out its heat in record time and then run away with the Cup final. It railed all the way, both times after a good jump from an inside box.

A little later – Sandown R8 25 Sep – it came out of box 8 moderately but then progressively rounded up a good field, always in the middle of the track, until hitting the lead on the home turn. It then ran away from them to win by 7 lengths in a near record 29.09 – a PB for this dog. It simply kept pouring on the power all the way to the post, even though it had covered much more ground than the opposition.

These were two different sorts of runs but in both cases the dog was free to do what it wanted to do. There was no restriction on its galloping capability. That degree of freedom had greater effect than the extra distance covered at Sandown. (For comparison, Sandown has turns of 50m radius but My Bro Fabio effectively ran at least 3m out. Were both runs around a perfect circle the distance covered would be 5.7% greater).

Horse or dog – they both like to do that. Alternatively, in both codes, many runners do not like to be crowded. That’s a head problem, not a physical one, but it is real and in some cases it is vital to the result.

The related point is that the layout of a track should encourage dogs to do their thing, wherever possible, but also try to keep them apart. This is why Albion Park and The Meadows (amongst others) are deficient as their configuration forces the field to come together on the first turn, thereby giving the advantage to either a clear leader or to a very lucky dog that gets through unscathed.

This is not to say that other circle tracks are good, only that their problems are different.

Track design is a science but it is treated like guesswork. No doubt Logan in Queensland or the new Cannington track in WA will be the same as nobody has ever bothered to do the necessary investigation and analysis prior to finalising the design. For example, horses often start in shutes while dogs never do. Why not?

Giving our top dogs – or any dog – an even chance is critical to the success of the industry. Indeed it is the starting principle for any race as well as the means to the end of better publicising the code. We need more of it and we need to do it better.

Anyway, aside from the top dogs, how many average ones would be better performers were they to miss the bash and barge that some strike at the start of their career?

WHAT WAS THAT AGAIN?

Having just read yet another media release in a long series about drug penalties applied by various state authorities I am little wiser than I was before. Or not until I read up about it on the web. Even then 99% of us are still left guessing.

The latest case happened to concern the Ennis family, Warrior King and Dream It, and the drug Meloxicam, but it could have been any one of a hundred other cases.

The first hassle is that these reports are all couched in legalese or bureaucratese, presumably with the intention of avoiding subsequent legal challenges. But they also fail to inform. You could change the name of the offender or the drug and use the same statement over and over again.

Second, actual details are seldom offered; how much was given; when and why; was it prescribed; if so, what was the veterinary advice; what if any health problems were involved. Failing that information, even knowledgeable trainers would be none the wiser.

Third, is the established ban fully justified? What is the effect of the drug on the dog generally, and specifically how does it affect its ability to compete? Is the size or the recency of the dose relevant? If so, how relevant?

Fourth, why is it relevant that the offender had a previously good record? It is understandable that repeat offenders might warrant harsher treatment but why should first offenders get a penalty which is decided subjectively by “judges” (ie the stewards) who have no legal training.

For comparison, here are statements by experts about Meloxicam, culled from several internet sources.

For humans:

“Meloxicam is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Meloxicam works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Meloxicam is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by arthritis.”

For dogs:

“Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) prescription medication used to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness as a result of acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis”.

So, am I any the wiser? No.

The drug may well fall into a category that is harmful to the conduct of the industry but it is not obvious from those descriptions. The dog apparently has an arthritic-like condition which justifies use of a drug. That would seemingly come under the heading of animal welfare, of which much is made these days.

As a longstanding, reasonably educated and experienced member of the industry, but not a trainer or a chemist, this sort of thing makes no sense to me. It should. It would make even less sense to an average member of the public. Right or wrong, it is the responsibility of people in charge to tell us what they are doing, and why, in language we can understand.

Authorities might note that it is illegal now for insurance companies or banks to provide policies written in gobbledygook. Plain English is mandatory. That is the community standard. Leave the legalese to the police.

Paperbond has won two of three since returning from a short spell and he should prove too zippy for this lot. He normally pings the lids and he is capable of running time on the bunny like he showed in his most recent win at Richmond in 22.74. There isn’t a heap of speed drawn underneath so he should be able to cross in the first 50m. Kezza’s Spirit could be the value in the event, he should get a nice cart across early and he has been placed in seven of his ten tries here. Unleash De Magic was a last start Goulbourn winner in a dazzling 19.67 and if he gets away cleanly he should be in the mix again. Breeze Magic rounds out the chances, he is very hit or miss at box rise but he has a slick 22.67 PB here and a repeat of that effort would give him a big chance.

Top Four: 4 – 5 – 6 – 2

Mighty Hurricane loves racing over this track and trip and he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. He normally steps well but his biggest asset is his turn of foot soon after box rise. If he can get a little room in the first 40m or so he should be able to burn to the early lead and it’s hard to see him getting run down. Jay Are Kay turned in a strong performance when placed here last time and he should be hitting the line hard again. He has a heap of talent but his poor box manners always make things difficult for him. Pyjamarama will settle on the speed and she has been racing well. Two starts ago she led for a long way when placed behind the class Logan John and a repeat of that effort will see her be a major player again.

Top Four: 5 – 7 – 6 – 2

Avondale Al Smashes Gosford Track Record http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/avondale-al-smashes-gosford-track-record/56557 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/avondale-al-smashes-gosford-track-record/56557#comments Wed, 01 Oct 2014 00:09:55 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56557 Beau Hedley’s boom youngster Avondale Al is the new Gosford 515m track record holder, after a devastating performance last night, clocking 29.14.

The son of Mogambo and Avondale Miss came tantilisingly close to breaking the record last week, clocking 29.31 and missed out by just 0.01 of a second. Stepping out in race ten, this gifted chaser began brilliantly from box three, recording sizzling sectionals of 4.39 and 16.57, with a run home time of 12.57. The black flash set the Central Coast track alight, scoring by twelve and a quarter lengths, annihilating the previous record held of 29.30 held by Lochinvar Curl, since May 2012.

At just his second race start tonight for part owner’s Beau Hedley and Mick Brown, Avondale Al set tongues wagging last week on debut, with many people predicting the record would go this week. Trainer Hedley was “over the moon” with his charges performance last night and there’s no doubt this pup who is just 23 months old, has an enormous future on the race track.

“I told Mick after he trialled at Gosford in 29.37 that you know this dog will probably run 29.10. We are off to Wenty now and if he can stay unbeaten I will put him into the Vic Peters”, explained Hedley.

Avondale Al’s dam Avondale Miss was no stranger to success herself. She held the Gardens 400m record and won fifteen races from twenty seven starts for trainer Jason Mackay. Her first litter to Mogambo also includes Avondale Storm, who was very impressive at Maitland on debut two weeks ago in 25.49 and is engaged at The Gardens this Saturday night over 515m. Avondale Miss had nine pups to Collision back in January and is currently in pup to Swift Fancy.

1

NSW sprinter Winifred Bale defeated fellow NSW finalist Bindall’s Hope by four length to take out the 1983 National Sprint Championship, run over 457 metres at Harold Park. Lord Tegimi, the Queensland finalist, was five lengths away third. The $24,000 first prize money propelled Winifred Bale’s earnings to a new Australian record of $94,000.

Whip Tip set a new Australian record for prize money earnings in 1988, taking her figures to $105,995, which surpassed the record of $103,475 held by Queensland sprinter Pretty Fearless.

2
NSW sprinter General Jeff won a heat of the 1980 Brisbane Cup over 558 metres at the Gabba by 10 lengths from Victorian Kalimna Boy. General Jeff ran 32.57 which was the fastest of the four run-offs, the next best being 33.07. General Jeff easily won the final the following week.

Lochinvar Marlow won the 2010 Paws of Thunder by eight lengths from Cosmic Planet and Cosmic Chief, running a fast 29.90.

3
All Design took out the 1979 Chief Havoc Memorial at Gunnedah by 15 lengths, running 30.85 to set a new track record.

NSW stayer Nellie Noodles broke the 600 metres track record at the Meadows in 2010, scoring by a whopping 17 and a half lengths.

4
Sandi’s Me Mum became the first greyhound to win two successive National Sprint Championships when she led all the way to take out the 1990 running, held over 511 metres at Sandown Park.

Press Statement became the first greyhound to break 17 seconds when scoring in 16.96 over 301 metres at Coonamble. On the same day, Speeding Bond broke the 400 metres track record, running 22.77.

5
Lady Sonic ran 31.6 for the 580 yards distance at Wentworth Park to equal the race record when she won the 1963 NSW Country Championship.

The 1974 Casino Cup was taken out by Gold Star Lass by three lengths from Busy’s Chief with Dusky Flame seven lengths away third.

6
Leading sprinters Magic Babe and Top Linen had a close-fought battle in a top-grade race over 500 yards at Harold Park in 1957, with Magic Babe prevailing by a head in 26.61. It was the last race for the year for Top Linen who did appear again for almost five months.

7
Boom Queensland speedster Spotted Lightning was defeated in the 1951 Lismore qualifying final of the Vic Peters Memorial Classic, running third after suffering severe interference. Spotted Lightning, who had set a track record up the straight at Capalaba at his first start and then run track record times in taking out heat and final of the Tweed River Thousand series, started at 1/15 ($1.06), the shortest-priced favourite to ever be beaten on the Northern Rivers.

Bogie Leigh annexed the 2003 Young Guns final over 520 metres at Ipswich, defeating Freedom Bale by a length and a half for trainer Tony Brett.

Brilliant Lee took out the 2005 Geelong Cup, defeating See You Later and Trew Touch in a fairly slow 25.57.
