Starting as the $2.30 favourite from box seven, the son of Jarvis Bale and Greta Bale jumped a little awkward before recovering in the straight to race into third around the first turn. Charging into the back and the Andrea Dailly- trained chaser showed a brilliant burst of acceleration, finding the front and striding to the line two and a half lengths clear of a gallant Agent Jack in second position.

It was just Allen Deed’s second start over the track and distance after being run down by Sisco Rage at his last start. The classy campaigner seemed to derive great benefit from that hit out and will definitely be a key player in Friday’s $75,000 to the winner final.

Another impressive performance was from WA speedster Star Recall which blitzed her rivals to score by just under six lengths in a hot 37.18. It was her first start at Sale and she was ultra impressive, making it her third win from four starts since stepping up over the middle distance.

Now trained in Victoria by Jeff Britton, Star Recall has now won 24 races with 11 minor placings from 43 starts.

Jeff also won the last heat with Texas Titan too good from box one. A member of the fantastic Vapour Whirl – Foot Luce litter, Texas Titan was having his first go over the testing trip, his only other attempt at a middle distance journey being the 595 at Sandown where he won in April.

The striking black dog appeared to get a little tired in the run to the line, although that was to be expected, clocking 37.49.

Jeff’s brother Rob Britton qualified a runner for the final with Space Star claiming the opening heat. The son of Bekim Bale and Tonto Tears relished the wide draw, giving him room to move, sweeping around the outside to race to the lead on the home turn. Although he got a little weary a few metres before the line, Space Star was able to hold on to defeat Deadly Boy by half a length in 37.34.

Sweet It Is was all the rage in the fourth heat, but she was only able manage second behind the Peter Dapiran- prepared Zipping Felix. As per usual, the daughter of Mogambo and Off Springer dropped back to last early before making her move mid-race. However, Darren McDonald’s star stayer found plenty of congestion before powering home to finish under two lengths off the winner that clocked 37.25. All honours were with the winner which put in a gutsy effort himself, flashing home from midfield to score his eight win at start 29.

The remaining heat was taken out by the in form Kelly Bravo kennel with Kiltah Magic. She bounced straight on the bunny from box two and was never in danger, holding out Zipping Spike by two lengths in a speedy 37.21.

The final of the Group One Sale Cup will be run this Friday evening.

The box draw for the final is as follows:

1   TEXAS TITAN – Jeff Britton

2   AGENT JACK – Steven McKenna

3   ZIPPING SPIKE – Darren McDonald

4   STAR RECALL – Jeff Britton

5   KILTAH MAGIC – Kelly Bravo

6   ALLEN DEED – Andrea Dailly

7   SPACE STAR – Rob Britton

8  ZIPPING FELIX – Peter Dapiran

9   SWEET IT IS – RES – Darren McDonald

10  DEADLY BOY – RES – Steven McKenna

Vegemania’s Miraculous Race Track Return http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/vegemanias-miraculous-race-track-return/59310 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/vegemanias-miraculous-race-track-return/59310#comments Sat, 20 Dec 2014 10:27:57 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=59310 Not many people would recognise the name Vegemania, however after you learn of his remarkable return to the race track, I’m confident there will be an array of participants eager to view his next race start.

Hunter Valley trainer Rod Teasdale performance trialled Vegemania at The Gardens over 400 metres back in April, clocking a time of 23.23. After finishing fifth in his first race start at the track two weeks later, Teasdale never expected the horrific accident that happened one Tuesday morning.

“He was just running around our yard and then fell over and broke his neck.”

“Luckily it wasn’t near the spinal cord, but rather the area near the outside of the neck.”

“The vets couldn’t operate so all we could do was try and keep his head still, which was very hard.”

“It was horrible watching him try and get up and down off his bed.”

After twelve long and strenuous weeks of recovery and rehabilitation, Teasdale made the decision to put Vegemania back in work and was pleasantly surprised with his progress.

“He was trialling pretty well and I thought it would be worth having another go with him, since the injury had healed.”

Five months after making his debut, the son of Vee Man Vane and Blue Sky Libby returned to Gosford at the end of September, finishing second over the 400m. Two and a half months later, Vegemania finally cracked his maiden win at Maitland this past Wednesday, clocking 23.02 over 400m. Teasdale was elated after the race, adamant all the months of hard work put in returning his beloved chaser to the race track was worth it.

“I was actually relieved more than anything. He’s such a beautiful big dog and the win was worth every minute of all the hard work.”

“He was due to go to another trainer on 27th of this month, so it was great to win with him and my wife and I decided to take the offer of shifting him to a country trainer. I have no doubt he will do well there.”

Greyhounds have an amazing resilience to recover from horrific injuries and illnesses and make a successful return to the race track. Anthony Azzopardi’s Group winning chaser My Boy Snoop returned from a twisted bowel injury last week at Wentworth Park and ran home extremely week last night finishing third, I’m sure delighting owner Terry Kingcott.

Below is an x-ray of Vegemania’s broken neck, with the white line running through the bone, illustrating the break.xray

There isn’t much difference between any of the runners time wise so it wouldn’t be a shock to see virtually any of the eight salute.

Jeff Britton (Trainer) – I didn’t know she was capable of running 4.93 early but when they (Weblec Rose & Weblec Belle) cam to me there wasn’t must difference, she just hasn’t been racing as well. I don’t think she came to racing as quickly as Weblec Belle. If she does what she did last week I think she will be very hard to beat.

Jeff Britton (Trainer) – She is poorly boxed because there will be a lot of speed from the outside coming down on her. She is going to have to rely on a bit of trouble, she is very strong, so if there is a little bit of a pile up and she can get around the other dogs then she is a bit of a chance.

Ray Steele (Trainer) – I think it will suit her out there because she can come out really good off an outside draw. Her early speed is her best attribute but she will really need it on Sunday because there are seven other handy dogs in the race. She has got to use all of her early speed to be any chance

Jeff Britton (Trainer) – She was stiff last week not to get through. She was last early last week and the dog that was back with her put her into the fence and then she got run off the track when she tried to make some ground. If she can get into the race she will always be a chance.

29.52 29.90 (3rd) 5.14 5.32

If Weblec Rose (2) can begin like she did last week then it is hard to see anything leading her. She showed what she was capable of, clocking 4.93 early and 29.39 overall. She does like to get off the track a touch but she shouldn’t be threatened too much early from her direct outside and, as long as she gets clear galloping room around her, I think she can find the front and be too strong. 



Lady Ronray (7) is a class runner and she also shows tremendous speed early. She is a flawless beginner week in, week out, but she does have to cross six other runners here and a few of them can show early toe too. She will need to lead to win as she did get a little bit tired in the final stages last week, but if she can find the front she can record slick time on the bunny. I think she is the value runner in the race and is definitely the one to be on if the odds are too short for Weblec Rose.



Weblec Belle (1) isn’t a brilliant beginner but she is drawn well to get a nice run along the rails and she is very strong in the run to the line. 



Lamia Bale (6) is in top form but wont be helped by the poor draw and a lot of speed in the race. She can record some sizzling early sections in her races, however she has a bit going against her today.

The Group Two Laurels classic is race eight and will jump at 4:17pm.

I’m Pedro hasn’t been racing with much luck of late and I’m expecting him to show a lot more improvement in this company. In recent weeks he has been finding bother soon after the start and therefore he has been unable to make an impact, tonight he has speed drawn underneath so he should get a nice cart into the race from the three and he should then take over as they head into the first bend.

Smooth Number is in rare form and he hit the line when scoring here last week in 30.20. In that effort he found some bother in running so with a clear run tonight I would expect him to go a lot quicker on the clock.

Von Ryan has a good record here and he should settle near the speed, the box draw isn’t great but he did post his impressive 29.98 PB here from this draw.

Cawbourne Power must be included in your exotics, he doesn’t win very often but he is never far away in this type of company.

Jumble finally showed his true potential last time out and I think he is ready to take the next step. Last week he turned in an almighty performance when placed behind star sprinter Chica Destacada, on that occasion he was fair to begin and he managed to find some bother as they headed into the first turn so he probably should have finished even closer to the winner. From the pink tonight he should get a clear run early and if he gets across he should prove too zippy for his rivals.

Winsome Mission set the track alight here two runs back when winning in 29.68 and he should start the favourite, he has won five of eight to date in explosive fashion and if Jack Kade doesn’t get in his way early he will prove hard to hold out.

Ella Has Class is another one who scored a ridiculously fast win here two runs back and she too can feature with some luck early, she can be slow to begin at times so I’m not too keen on her winning hopes tonight.

Lorella Fire is showing some promise and she must be included in your exotics, while Jack Kade has the early speed to lead them up and he too could hold on for a place.

Tough race but I think the former Tasmanian Varcoe can get the job done. Last time out he resumed from a spell with a top 472m Bulli placing and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. There isn’t a lot of speed drawn directly on his outside so if he can step away cleanly he should be able to drive through and hold a prominent position in the early stages.

Eton Gold has come up with the coveted rails draw and he does his best racing from this pin, I dont think he can hold Varcoe out but he should be able to camp just behind him and fill the quinella spot.

Abunda is racing in great form at present and he possesses smart early speed, if he crosses the inside two he might be able to steal a race winning break as they head to the back straight.

Mr. Fordham could be the value in the event, he was fair when resuming from a lengthy spell last time but he did trial well before that and he should turn in an improved effort.

Gold Dawn is yet to win here in 10 tries but she has turned in some very handy efforts of late and she finds herself in a very winnable race. She is normally very good to begin and the early pressure is going to come from the outside, so if she can step on terms she should have enough natural speed to hold them out at the first turn. This is not a very strong race so if she leads she should have enough in the tank to hold on in the final 50 metres.

Kasinda should match motors with Gold Dawn for most of the trip and she too is getting close to another win, if she was drawn underneath Gold Dawn she would be my top pick, however because she is drawn on the outside I think she might be posted wide for most of the trip so the quinella spot looks best.

Stunning Ashberg hit the line solidly when placed here last week and she shouldn’t be too far away again, I dont think she can win but she would be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Santorini Blue rounds out the chances, he has been disappointing here of late but if he can sight the bunny early he may turn in an improved effort.

Good race and I think the classy Dusty Moonshine should find this race to her liking. In recent times she has found the going tough against the nation’s best stayers but last time out she dropped back in class at The Gardens and she destroyed a field which is similar to what she meets tonight. If she can get away cleanly and settle in the top three, she should prove far too good for this lot.

Stargate System made his Wentworth Park debut last time out and he powered to the line when scoring in 42.63, I think he will be giving Dusty Moonshine too big of a head start but he should be able to run home into the quinella spot.

Ritza Ruby should settle somewhere near the speed and she was a top 42.35 winner here three runs back, she can be a little hit or miss early but if she gets away she should run a cheeky race.

Raramuri is rarely far away in this company and she has a slick 42.15 PB here, she may get shuffled back a bit early but she can run home into a place.

Topper Road is armed with explosive early speed and if he can step away he should be able to burn them off and score. Last week he went through the first marker in a blistering 5.39 before going on to score in 29.97, that was his first run for a few weeks so if he finds the top again tonight I would expect him to go a little quicker overall.

Whittaker is a star in the making and if he can avoid early bother he will take a power of beating, he has plenty on this lot ability wise but I’m concerned about the draw because he can miss away and he is likely to find early bother.

Hazy Rainbow showed tremendous improvement here last week and she should be in the mix again, this is obviously a big class rise but she does possess early speed and she appears to be getting better with more racing.

Winsome Jacko is the real deal and it’s hard to see him being beaten tonight, in his two efforts here of late he has been slow to begin but tonight he has two slow beginners directly on his outside so he should get plenty of room to drive through at the first bend. Last week he rated off the charts and with a trouble free run it will be interesting to see if he can go sub 29.50.

Bessy Boo looks the likely quinella, he has been racing against some real top liners of late and he loves racing over this journey, with Winsome Jacko expected to gap this field, he should be able to run over the top of some stragglers in the home straight.

Remote Control has his favourite draw and he shouldn’t be too far away, he should get plenty of room to muster speed early and he is capable of running time when he lands on the bunny.

Cawbourne Rev rounds out the chances, she scored a strong 30.33 win here two runs back and with some luck early she should be in the mix for some minor money.

Zipping Tarn looked very impressive when she overcame some difficulties to score here last week in 29.95 and with a trouble free run tonight she should be able to score in much faster time. There is a little bit of speed on her outside but she does possess good burn after box rise so she should be able to hold Fort Allen out early.

Asia’s Babe is ideally drawn in the pink and she looks well placed in this class, four starts back she scored a sizzling 34.52 Gosford win and if she can settle in the top four early she should be there at the end tonight.

Fort Allen returned to form with a speedy 29.97 win here last week and he should be in the mix for a long way again.

Peter’s Pick could be the value in the event, he has recorded two strong placings here of late and drawn nearer the inside he could run a big race at nice odds.

Cawbourne Whip returns to her favourite track and she is drawn to make a big impact. She has won six of 18 here and she has a blistering 29.38 PB, there is a bit of speed drawn in the six and seven and that should allow her to get a nice cart across as they head into the first bend. If she settles in the top three early she should prove too strong, so if you can land $2.80 or better that is great over’s.

King Cobber can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting his talent, back in October he won here in a ridiculous 29.60 and since the he has also scored in very fast time at Nowra, he will need to ping and run to win but that isn’t beyond him.

Watto Lotto is well placed nearer the inside and he is a great place hope, he lacks mid race speed but he will scrape the paint and finish on well.

Magic Dream has the speed to lead and he could give a great sight, with Woods cutting left early he should allow Magic Dream to drive through as they head into the first bend.

Miss Dover resumed from a spell with a top effort here last week, after stepping cleanly she led for a long way against Winsome Jacko and she was far from disgraced when beaten by seven lengths. If she can find the early lead tonight she should give a great sight again and this race is a lot weaker than the event she contested last week.

Sexy Opinion should settle just behind Miss Dover and she should run a big race, three starts back she won here in a solid 30.16 and that type of effort again will see her figure prominently.

Black Bronco has been placed here on six occasions and he has strong place claims again, whilst Cosmic Vee Bee is dropping back in distance and she should be steaming home at the end.

Jordan Allen caught the eye with an all the way win here last week in 30.01 and with a similar getaway tonight he should be able to repeat the dose. He is normally quite reliable early and he musters pace quickly so he should have sufficient speed to cross the red in the early stages. This is a pretty weak race so if he finds the bunny it’s hard to see him getting run down whilst running 30 flat on the bunny.

Lektra Brave was far from disgraced when placed behind Jordan Allen last week and he must be respected again, unlike Jordan Allen he can miss the kick at times so from the middle pin he will need to get away cleanly.

Bottom Dollar is a class act when on song and he turned in a great effort when placed at Cranbourne two runs back, he has proven in his career that when given room to muster he is capable of reeling off very impressive sectionals.

Crackerjack Rose rounds out the chances, she has a great record here and she does possess enough speed to settle in the top three early.

This is the first heat of the Silver Chief and it should be a cracker, I’ve gone with WA visitor Tureaud. He comes here having won nine of his 13 career starts and he has set the Cannington track alight in some of those victories. I dont think he has seen the track but if he can handle the first bend he should be good enough to score and he should continue to improve throughout the series.

Quasi Bale is a very fast chaser and with a clear run he will take a power of beating, the concern with him is that he can be slow to begin and he has a heap of pace drawn around him.

Ikaku Bale is the interesting runner, after a luckless debut run here he made significant improvement with a sizzling 30.01 victory here, if he can reproduce that type of effort he will be right in the mix, it’s worth noting that he is $100/1 all in for the final with some bookmakers and if he continues to improve he could be the smokey for the series.

Left Is Right is the most reliable beginner in the event and he returned to form with a top 29.69 Sandown win, he should get a clear run early and he should run a big race.

Dyna Alchemist showed a return to form last time out when placed behind gun sprinter Clash Of Kings last time out and he should be able to go one better tonight. His box manners arent great but he does muster speed at a rate of knots and if given room in the first 30m he will take a power of beating.

Tiggerlong Await is an exciting prospect and he was a strong 30.19 winner here two runs back, I strongly believe he is capable of getting down to the 29.90 mark when given a clear run and if the seven and eight dont come across too quickly he should get every chance to show that type of form.

Dawkins Bale continues to impress and he is drawn to get a nice cart across early, his 29.87 win here two runs back was spectacular and if he is allowed a clear passage through the first bend he should be in the finish.

Weston East has the good draw but he is likely to settle back in the field early, he is quite strong and he must be included in your exotic bets.

This is probably the weakest heat of the lot and if Dyna Norfolk can anticipate the start he might get the cash at nice odds. With a wide runner on his outside, the middle pin shouldn’t pose too many problems and he has been placed in two of his three tries here. He has proven in his career to date that when he finds the bunny early he can run some serious time, so I reckon tonight might be his night at nice odds.

Charleston was solidly placed in his metro debut last time out and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. Prior to that effort he had posted two brilliant Ballarat wins and on each occasion he gave the indication that he will be better suited to this journey.

Quantum bale has plenty of gears and he will be steaming home at the end, from box six he will need a few breaks but he is too good to dismiss.

Amaro Bale has the coveted red draw and he is an improving type, he is likely to settle back in the field but he will finish strongly and he must be included in your exotics.

Great race and logic says to tip Above All, however I think he might be a little flat after his devastating Hobart Thousand Win and I believe Droopy’s Bentley can cause an upset. Droopy’s Bentley scored a blistering 25.13 Shepparton win two runs back and he followed that effort up with a top placing here last week. He is capable of going around the 29.85 mark on the bunny and I think that should be enough to get the job done.

Above All is a an absolute freak and his Hobart Thousand win was probably the best win I have seen for quite some time, he made a gun lineup look like a bunch of grade five chasers, if he brings that form tonight then he wins with ease, however I believe the travelling might take a bit out of him and he is a risk at the short odds.

Bay Boy Sniper set the track alight in his 29.83 trial effort here last week and a similar effort tonight will see him test the two favourites.

Dyna Vickers is a real up and comer and his placing here last week was super, he is likely to get back early but he can finish on strongly into a place.

Dyna Yemen is an enormous talent but he has looked a little off at his past couple, however I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and I believe he can bounce back to his best. The wide draw shouldn’t pose too many problems and he has won here previously in a blistering 29.87, if given a clear passage in the first 50m he should put a space in them.

Fleetwood Zac isn’t a star but he is honest and he has the good draw, two starts back he led all the way at Sandown in 29.64 and a similar effort tonight would probably see him lead for most of the journey.

Opus Forte is a classy NSW speedster and he has scored two dazzling Richmond wins of late, if he can handle the track he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Benzo Bale is very unreliable but when he has bounced on the bunny in the past he has scored some slick wins, from the rails draw he should get a clear run early and he may cause an upset.

Top Four: 7 – 1 – 3 – 2

Very open affair and it’s hard to look past Zipping Ryan after he scored a devastating 23.60 Bendigo win last time out, on that occasion he showed a blistering turn of foot soon after the start and once he found the bunny he went into overdrive, from the red tonight he should be able to hold them out and he will take some catching.

Dyna Quirk is a real up and comer and he caught the eye with a slick 30.14 win here last week, his box manners arent great but he musters quickly and he should continue to get stronger with every run.

Clash Of Kings has the class edge and he returned to form with a top 29.98 win here last week, if he can step cleanly again he should be able to make an impact, he is much better from a rails draw but he is way too good to dismiss.

Glock is the run on type in the event, he has failed to deliver on his early promise but if there is a mix up near the lead he is still good enough to run over the top late.

Dyna Villa is an absolute star and the reigning Melbourne Cup champ should make light work of these, however I do have a small concern with him. Like Above All he is coming up a tough trip to Tassie and he may be a little flat, if he is off his game tonight, the red may make him work very hard for victory.

Quarrel Bale is perfectly placed in the red and he has turned in some monster efforts at Ballarat of late, he is normally slow to begin but from the red he should settle a little closer to the speed than normal and he may run over the top of them as they round for home.

Gunloch hasn’t had much luck since his impressive 29.98 win here and he will be looking to improve tonight, with a slow beginner on his outside he should be afforded all the breaks as they head into the first bend. Usain I’m Nutty could be the value for the place, he is likely to settle mid pack but he is armed with a strong finish and he is getting better with every race start.

Zeppelin Bale is more than capable and he must be respected at odds also, he led all the way at Sandown last time in 29.54 and a repeat effort tonight will see him be competitive.

Go Mobo is dropping considerably in class tonight and he should lead from go to whoa, last time out at Geelong he stepped cleanly and scored a commanding 29.94 win. If he can produce a similar effort tonight he should be able to build up a nice lead mid race and it’s hard to see them reeling him in.

Classy Boy has been racing well and he is armed with a big finish, he can make a lot of mistakes in his races but if the gaps open up at the right time he will be right in the mix at the end.

Reen’s Fabian has a great record here and he is in good form, if he can get across in the early stages he can make an impact, he does possess good speed so he should be able to settle in the top two early.

Optimus Bart rounds out the hopes, he is very strong and he should get a nice cart across from Reen’s Fabian in the early stages.

Duomo Bale appears to be the real deal and he is unbeaten in his two tries here. In his brief career to date he has shown smart early speed and apart from the pink this race doesn’t feature a lot of early speed.

Izzey Bale beat a classy type here last week in 29.92 and that type of effort would see him figure prominently again, the only concern with him is that he doesn’t box that well and he will need some room in the first 30 or so meters.

Midnight Flynn comes here with strong country form and if he can handle the extra journey he shouldn’t be too far away, his effort at Shepparton two starts back when scoring in 25.29 was ultra impressive.

One of the stronger heats with six genuine winning hopes, I’m going with the explosive Caustic Bale, he has the potential to be the state’s best sprinter and if he can fix his box manners he could go with any chaser in the land. Three starts back he set the Ballarat track alight with a blistering 25.04 win and he does have experience here so he should be able to handle the track.

Ballerino is unbeaten in four tries here and he managed to break the 30 second barrier in his last victory, he is armed with early speed and he appears to be the likely leader.

Dyna Double Dee scored a ridiculous 29.81 win here last week and he is showing enormous potential, I’m not convinced about his early speed but if he gets room early he should be right in the mix.

Prescribe is a gun Tasmanian chaser and he trialled quickly here last week, he should be able to settle in the top three early and he could cause an upset.

Smoken Jimmy is a class act when on song and he has scored some sizzling wins in his brief career to date, from the red he should be able to hold a forward spot early and if he can hold them out he should be running some time on the bunny.

Crackerjack Max is aiming for a hat trick of wins and he continues to go from strength to strength, with a couple of slow beginners on his outside he should get a fairly clear passage early and he should be able to make an impact.

Ultima Bale has the class edge and he scorched around Warragul last time out, he is better suited to a rails draw but he has genuine speed once he hits the ground and he should be able to overcome some minor difficulties early in the race.

2014 Hobart Thousand Rises Above All Others http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/tasmanian-greyhound-racing/2014-hobart-thousand-rises-above-all-others/59289 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/tasmanian-greyhound-racing/2014-hobart-thousand-rises-above-all-others/59289#comments Fri, 19 Dec 2014 08:31:08 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=59289 Kiwi owner/breeder Alison Lee is still on cloud nine after her superb greyhound Above All scored an emphatic victory in last night’s Group One Hobart Thousand.

Beginning well from box five, the Robert Britton- trained chaser found the front in the early stages and put on an effortless demonstration, defeating Ride The Rails by seven and three quarter lengths with Melbourne Cup champ Dyna Villa back in third.

“It is surreal, I still can’t believe it”, Lee enthused, “It was very exciting and a great experience”.

Lee made the trip from the Land of the Long White Cloud to the Apple Isle to cheer on her brilliant black performer, thinking that he would race well in the $75,000 to the winner feature.

“I thought that if he jumped and got a bit of clear room that he would be a chance, but I really thought the one (Big Ticket) and two (Dyna Villa) would have jumped better and that he would have had to tuck in behind them”, Lee explained.

“Rob (Britton) said that the four (Blurred Lines) missed the jump and it gave him that little bit of room which he used to his advantage.

“Although he was in front, I wasn’t too sure because he had Dyna Villa behind him, but he just kept going.”

Not only did Above All record one of the most dominant Hobart Thousand wins in recent times, the son of Magic Sprite and Kara Janx also smashed the track record previously held by one turn king Paw Licking, clocking a breathtaking 25.52 over the 461 metre trip.

Lee said his effort to shave 12/100ths off the previous Hobart benchmark was just the icing on top of the cake.

“I couldn’t believe that he broke the track record and I didn’t even realise he had until I got down to the presentation. He went well and to top it off I was then told the track was a little bit soft too, so to get the track record has just made it unbelievable.”

Above All came into the Hobart Thousand series after having a freshen up following his fourth placing in the Melbourne Cup. Lee said that the short break was pivotal for Above All, with just 11 starts to his name before the Tassie series.

“He was unlucky in the Melbourne Cup, he got a couple of checks and we think he hit the rail. For him to hold on for fourth, we were really happy with the run.

“We wanted to keep him fresh, he races better that way and he is only young so Rob has just decided to race him lightly and pick out races for him.”

Above All qualified for Australia’s oldest race with a phenomenal last to first heat performance on December 11. Showing maturity and field sense way beyond what his racetrack experience would suggest, the 32 kilogram powerhouse weaved his way through the field and captured the lead in the run to the line.

“It was a huge run in his heat”, Lee said, “We were absolutely screaming back home.”

“When he jumped and got checked I thought ‘on no’ but he really used his brain, he went back to the rail and found his way through the field.”

Now with 13 starts for eight wins and two minor placings, Above All looms as one of the most promising and exciting chasers in the country. Lee, who bred him with her partner Merv O’Brien in New Zealand, said that they virtually knew from day one that he was superbly talented.

Based on this, they decided to send him to Australian shores to race under the tutelage of Britton, who previously trained their former gun speedster, Clone Your Own, to win the Group Two Harrison-Dawson.

“The bloke that broke him in said that he was quicker than any other dog he has put around.

“When I got him home I hand slipped him at Addington and the time that he ran home in for his first trial was huge. I knew then we had to get him over to Rob as soon as we could.”

“Rob is brilliant, he is such a good conditioner. He looks after his dogs, they are always fit and in brilliant condition and the whole family- Rob and Mary and Pete and everyone that works there, they are just really great.

“Plus they always buy him an ice cream and a cheeseburger on the way home”, Lee laughed.

At this stage, the next goal for him is tomorrow night’s heats of the Group One Silver Chief at The Meadows, however Lee explained that the final call will rest with Britton to determine whether the dog is ready to back up in the 525 metre feature.

“Rob wasn’t going to make any commitments until he was back at home and settled in his kennel, but if there are any issues then he will scratch him straight away.”

Lee and O’Brien, who have been breeding greyhounds for 18 years, look set to have a wonderful ride ahead of them with Above All.

“The sky is the limit for him and Rob will just pick and choose the races for him to go in and eventually he will stand at stud.

“As long as he stays fit and sound he should have a huge future, it is great what he is doing for New Zealand racing.”

2014 Group One Sale Cup Heat Preview http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-sale-cup-heat-preview/59279 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-sale-cup-heat-preview/59279#comments Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:56:27 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=59279 Six heats of the Group One Sale Cup will be held tomorrow night over the testing 650 metre trip.

Worth $75,000 to the winner, the Sale Cup was first run 1968 with some stars of the track featuring on the honour roll such as Chariot Supreme, Miss Brook, Mantra Lad and Destini Fireball. Last year’s race was taken out by three time Group One winner Dyna Nalin.

Group One Sale Cup Heat One – 6:48pm

Rob Britton looks set to qualify for another Group One final with the brilliant Space Star (8) drawn ideally in the pink. The son of Bekim Bale and Tonto Tears is a dual track record holder with a massive motor and has been racing competitively at the top level at his last few starts. He has won 13 from 23 and should go close to recording another win here.

Zipping Maggie (4) debuted at the track last week, running fourth behind Dyna Kayla. At the start before that she finished second in the Group Three Summer Cup at Wentworth Park and, although she hasn’t won in a while, she has been racing the nation’s best stayers and has been far from disgraced. She races at her best when leading and looks capable of doing so tonight.

Deadly Boy (1) is having his first start over the track and distance, but has won well at The Meadows over the middle distance so he should be capable of running out the trip. He has a  brillant record from box one so should go well from where he wants to be.

Perfect Tess (7) has clocked 34.17 at Sandown Park so must also be respected.

Group One Sale Cup Heat Two – 7:09pm

WA bitch Star Recall remained in the care of Jeff Britton after competing in the Melbourne Cup final and has made quite an impact since stepping up to the middle distance. Although finishing midfield at her last start, she had recorded two slick wins at The Meadows (34.26 and 34.01) prior to that. She should be able to find the lead from box seven and, although it is her first start at Sale, her class should get her over the line.

Tyra Giselle (3) is exceptionally bred being out of the great Paua To Burn, she is a last start 34.64 winner at The Meadows so must be included.

Shall She Rock (2) has been mixing it with some classy chasers of late and should enjoy being drawn in box two whilst Go Jetta Go (8) has a handy record from the pink and should be finishing strongly.

Group One Sale Cup Heat Three – 7:31pm

Eliza Blanche (2) is a highly promising bitch that loves an inside draw and should go close to finding the lead early on. She has been racing against some exceptional chasers lately and has recorded wins at Sandown (34.02) and The Meadows (34.19). Under the care of Darren McDonald she should go well

Allen Deed (7) is drawn out wide where he wants to be and is a freakishly fast greyhound when at his best. He recently contested the Ballarat Cup final before stepping up to the 650 last start when finishing second to Sisco Rage. He should derive great benefit from that run and be better for it when the lids fly open tomorrow night.

Agent Jack (4) is first up since his fourth placing in the Ballarat Cup behind Luca Neveelk. He is a very strong greyhound who should relish the extra distance here.

Group One Sale Cup Heat Four – 8:14pm

Australia’s best stayer, Sweet It Is (2), will be aiming to bounce back from her last start failure in the Group Three Summer Cup and should appreciate the slight drop in grade. She has a tendency to drop out early and find a lot of trouble in running, so she always needs a lot of luck, but on her night she is better than any of these by a long mile.

Sisco Rage (4) defeated Allen Deed over the track and distance in 37.38 at his last start. The advantage of having a look at the track should favour him over a few other runners in this affair.

Ralphy Cinel (8) clocked a flying 33.94 in a heat of the Sir John Dillon Memorial at Sandown two starts back before running third in the final to the in-form Lamia Bale. He doesn’t appear very well suited out wide but he is too fast to leave out.

Group One Sale Cup Heat Five – 8:33pm

Should be a cracking heat with the likely favourites being Hostile (6) and Blinker’s On (7).

Hostile made the step up over the middle distance two starts back and won impressively in a smart 34.19 at The Meadows. He returned the following week and ran second behind Star Recall. That form is solid going into a race like this and, if he can run out the extra 50 metres, he should be in the finish despite the ordinary draw.

Blinker’s On has been knocking on the door for a feature win for a while now and gets his chance to make it through to another Group final here. He finished fifth behind Lamia Bale in the Sir John Dillon Memorial last start but is far better suited over this journey.

Kiltah Magic (2) will go close to leading from her inside draw and should be up near the front for a long way. She ran a fast 33.96 at Sandown two starts back but she is unraced over the 650 so it will be a big test for her.

Mepunga Hayley (3) is the class runner as the winner of the Group One Maturity Classic earlier this year but she is racing below her best at the moment and is a little hard to follow.

Group One Sale Cup Heat Six – 9:15pm

Dyna Kayla (6) is hard to follow but is a flying machine when she is on the task. She recorded a fast 37.11 win over the track and distance last start and a repeat of that would see her hard to beat, despite being drawn in box six.

Texas Titan (1) looks suited by the rise in distance here. He is a moderate beginner over the sprint trip but may find himself near the lead early here and he would be hard to run down if he is on the bunny.

Zipping Rory (8) is a recent winner of the Summer Cup at Wentworth Park before finishing at the tail of the field at his track debut last week. He is a classy dog but will need a bit of luck to cross from box eight.

Volksjager Blue (2) is a litter brother to Shot To Bits and he has run some handy placings over the middle distance at Geelong recently. He may not be quite good enough to win, but he can definitely run on into a minor placing.

Robert Conway Disqualified For Androstane Positive http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/robert-conway-disqualified-for-androstane-positive/59276 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/victorian-greyhound-racing/robert-conway-disqualified-for-androstane-positive/59276#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 23:18:27 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=59276 Offence:

83 (2) (3) and (6): Mr. Robert Conway failed to present the greyhound ‘Norrie’s Antics’ free of any prohibited substance for an event at the Cranbourne Greyhound Racing Club on Wednesday, 27 August 2014.

Report:

Following advice from Racing Analytical Services Laboratory, the Stewards of Greyhound Racing Victoria conducted an investigation into the results of a post-race urine sample taken from the greyhound ‘Norrie’s Antics’ at the Cranbourne Greyhound Racing Club meeting held on Wednesday, 27 August 2014.

During the investigation, Stewards received evidence from registered trainer Mr. Robert Conway, the Racing Analytical Services Laboratory and Dr. Steven Karamatic (Greyhound Racing Industry Veterinary Officer).

After considering the evidence, Stewards charged Mr. Conway with a breach of Greyhounds Australasia Rules 83(2)(3) and (6) in that he did fail to present the greyhound ‘Norrie’s Antics’ free of any prohibited substance for an event at the Cranbourne Greyhound Racing Club meeting held on Wednesday, 27 August 2014 given that the post-race urine sample taken from the greyhound indicated the presence of the prohibited substance 5β- Androstane-3α, 17β-diol at a mass concentration greater than 10ng/ml.

Under Rule 47.1 of the Greyhound Racing Victoria Local Rules a breach of GAR83 (2) (3) and (6) constitutes a Serious Offence. As a result, on Thursday, 18 December 2014 this matter was heard before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board in the first instance under Greyhound Local Racing Rule 47.3 and Sections 83C(b) and 83M(1) of the Racing Act.

Mr. Robert Conway represented himself.

Mr. Glenn Fish (GRV Chief Steward) and Ms. Demi Barber (GRV Steward) represented the Stewards Panel.

Mr. Robert Conway pleaded guilty to the charge.

After hearing all the evidence tendered and having regard to GAR83 (2)(3) and (6), the RADB determined that Mr. Conway was guilty as charged and disqualified him for 9 months (with 5 months of this penalty suspended for 12 months pending no further breaches of GAR83 during the next 12 month period), effective from Tuesday, 23 December 2014.

Acting under GAR83(4), the RADB also disqualified ‘Norrie’s Antics’ from Event 4 – The KINGSTON TROPHIES – Grade 5 – at the Cranbourne Greyhound Racing Club meeting held on Wednesday, 27 August 2014 and amended the placing’s as follows:

1st Midnight Reign
2nd Buckle Up Axel
3rd Henry Garth
4th Bekim Goddess
5th Ulla Allen
6th Sonic Fantasy
7th Smash It
Disqualified Norrie’s Antics

In assessing penalty, the Board took into account all the evidence and submissions, including the following matters:

(a) Mr. Conway’s guilty plea;

(b) The nature of the prohibited substance 5Beta-Androstane-3alpha, 17beta-diol when present at a mass concentration greater than 10ng/mL;

(c) The need to maintain the integrity of greyhound racing and ensure a level playing
field for all participants;

(d) Prior penalties for similar offences;

(e) Mr. Conway’s character and his clean history for more than 45 years in the
greyhound industry;

(f) The need for general deterrence as a factor in sentencing and having regard to the
number of similar offences coming before the Board; and

(g) Mr. Conway’s positive presentation before the Board.

The Board took the opportunity to repeat its concern as to the number of matters involving this substance coming before it. The penalty given in this matter must stand at the low end of any scale and influenced by all the matters in Mr. Conway’s favour.

ARG Opinion:

There seems to be a lot of positive swabs for Androstane in recent months, probably due to the threshold being reduced to a lower concentration. GRV have shown that they are committed to eliminating the issue with most trainers caught facing disqualification and fines with this case’s penalty being consistent with those handed out recently.

GAR 83 (2)(3): Mr. Terry Moore failed to present the greyhound ‘Irene Florence’ free of any prohibited substance for an event at Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association on Wednesday, 10 September 2014.

Report:

Following advice from Racing Analytical Services Laboratory, the Stewards of Greyhound Racing Victoria conducted an investigation into the results of post-race urine sample taken from the greyhound ‘Irene Florence’ at the Bendigo meeting held on Wednesday, 10 September 2014.

Under Rule 47.1 of the Greyhound Racing Victoria Local Rules a breach of GAR83 (2) and (3) constitutes a Serious Offence. As a result, on Thursday, 18 December 2014 this matter was heard before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board in the first instance under Greyhound Local Racing Rule 47.3 and Sections 83C(b) and 83M(1) of the Racing Act.

ARG Opinion

Another forceful penalty imposed in Victoria, highlighting GRV’s intolerance of banned substances within the sport. Salbutamol, being a drug commonly used for treatment of bronchospasm, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cystic fibrosis, has been shown to increase performance in athletes.

9BLUE WESTMEAD [5]Res.3817NBTD Geall (Lara)
10KAUFMAN BALE (NSW)[5]Res.76764FSTDJ Hunt (Lara)

Very open race and I think we can find some value with the well drawn Run Right Back. She has raced well from this draw and she should be ready to fire fresh after having six weeks off. Prior to going for a short spell she had turned in some super efforts when placed at Sandown Park and she appears to be better suited to this journey.

Silver Rockstar was narrowly beaten in slick time at Ballarat last time and if he turns in a similar effort tonight he appears to be the main danger, he doesn’t have great box manners but he does have a great turn of foot and that will allow him to put himself into contention early.

Peregon Flyer rounds out the winning chances, he is poorly drawn but he does possess good speed and with a keen railer drawn in the four he should get a clear run early.

Top Four: 8 – 6 – 5 – 7

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Run Right Back with Sportingbet

Exacta: 6,8/5,6,7,8 ($6 for 100%)

Max Moon has won two of his past five and he has been runner up in the other three efforts. On each occasion he has shown smart early speed and if he can reproduce that speed tonight he should be able to get a cheap lead and he will then prove hard to gun down.

Francesco has recorded two solid Horsham placings of late and he could run a nice race at odds tonight, he doesn’t win very often but he hits the line well and he is rarely far away.

Aston Dima should get a nice cart across from Max Moon in the early stages and he should figure prominently for most of the trip, last time out he had no luck over this journey and I’m expecting an improved performance.

Hold On Beau is better than his form reads and he has raced well here in the past, if he goes around at silly odds he could be worth a saver bet.

Top Four: 6 – 2 – 7 – 5

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Max Moon with Sportingbet

Exacta: 2,6/2,5,6,7 ($6 for 100%)
