That is, what winners have either been sired by or are related to previous Egg victors or starters.

As it turns out, there’s not much of a relationship between any previous winner of the Egg and its progeny, apart from the mighty sprinter and super-sire Brett Lee, who took out the 2001 Egg final.

Brett Lee has had an influence on the winners of two Egg finals. Working backwards, the 2014 Egg victor, Tonk, was by Bartrim Bale out of Coulta Gold. Bartrim Bale was by Hallucinate, who was by Brett Lee, thereby giving Tonk an Egg ‘link’ via his grand-sire.

Then there’s a gap back to the 2010 winner Cosmic Rumble (Spiral Nikita x Spiritual Rumble). Once again it is Brett Lee who provides the Egg link, being the sire of Spiritual Rumble.

The only other greyhound to have exerted much of an influence on the Egg is Awesome Assassin. The former Victorian champion was a finalist in the 1998 Egg, finishing fourth behind the great Rapid Journey.

The 2009 winner Dana Beatrice (Collision x Dana Betty) has Awesome Assassin as her paternal grand-sire.

Paua To Burn, the 2005 winner, was sired by Awesome Assassin (out of Alice Dooley), thereby giving her sire the victory he could not achieve.

The influence of both Brett Lee and Awesome Assassin was highly evident in the 2014 final. As mentioned above, Tonk was a grand-son of Brett Lee. As well, the runner-up Hawk Alone had Brett Lee as a maternal grand-sire, while seventh placed Magic Display not only boasted Brett Lee in her bloodlines (as paternal grand-sire) but also had Rapid Journey as her maternal grand-sire.

Four of the other finalists in last years final had Awesome Assassin in their bloodlines: Buckle Up Wes and Evil Punk (as paternal grand-sire), Jordan Allen (as maternal grand-sire) and Ollie Bale (as maternal great-great grand-sire).

This year’s final field is continuing the Brett Lee and Awesome Assassin connection, with seven runners related to the former and the other to the latter.

Brett Lee features as the maternal great-great grand-sire of Dawkins Bale and is the maternal great grand-sire of Zipping Midge.

Over Limit is by the 2010 winner Cosmic Rumble, so once again Brett Lee is involved, as paternal great grand-sire.

Recruitment and Ronray Spirit are also sired by Cosmic Rumble and therefore boast Brett Lee in their bloodlines, three lines back.

Dyna Double One is by Barcia Bale, whose dam Princess Bale has Brett Lee as her grand-sire.

Dyna Nico is unique out of the eight finalists this year, being by High Earner, which made two successive Egg finals (2010 and 2011) but failed in both. Awesome Assassin features as well, being the paternal grand-sire of High Earner. So, Dyna Nico will be attempting to do what both her sire and great-grand-sire could not, and that is win a Golden Easter Egg.

First NSW live-baiting inquiry adjournedhttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/first-nsw-live-baiting-inquiry-adjourned/63356 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/first-nsw-live-baiting-inquiry-adjourned/63356#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 10:26:59 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63356 Read More.. ]]> THE first trainer inquiry into alleged live-baiting activity in NSW was adjourned on Monday while Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) considers whether or not they should lay charges against registered person Zeke Kadir.

Kadir was represented at his inquiry by Paul O’Sullivan, the legal counsel who is also representing leading thoroughbred trainer Darren Smith who is embroiled in the cobalt crisis, currently gripping the horse racing industry.

Kadir is at the centre of the live-baiting scandal in NSW, with his break-in facility ‘Wilshire Park’ being the location where secret surveillance cameras were set up, catching trainers allegedly engaging in the practice of tying live animals to the lure as an incentive to get their greyhounds to chase. The footage was captured and aired on the ABC’s Four Corners program last month and since then a total of 11 registered participants have been suspended within the state.

The other inquiries are set to continue this week as outlined below:

  • Donna Grech – Tuesday 31 March at 1pm
  • Ian Morgan – Tuesday 31 March at 4pm
  • John Cauchi – Wednesday 1 April at 10am
  • David Sundstrom – Wednesday 1 April at 1pm
  • Wayne Smith – Wednesday 1 April at 4pm
  • Majella Ferguson – Thursday 9 April at 11am

Despite trainers currently being suspended in Victoria, NSW and Queensland, the only state to hand down decisions this stage is the latter. Thirty six registered persons have been stood down across the Sunshine State, with six of those since being banned for life.

Heartbreaking end to Hostile’s careerhttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/heartbreaking-end-to-hostiles-career/63343 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/heartbreaking-end-to-hostiles-career/63343#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 03:56:07 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63343 Read More.. ]]> HOBBY trainer Darren Beasley has been left heartbroken after his star greyhound Hostile suffered what is likely to be a career-ending injury on Saturday night at Wentworth Park, just seconds after qualifying for the Group 1 Golden Easter Egg final.

Hostile ran second in his semi-final behind Recruitment, before going amiss shortly after the line in the run to the catching pen.

“


He fractured his metatarsal and he is getting operated on today (Monday),” Beasley said.

“At this stage you would probably say it is a career-ending injury. He is going to have quite a few months off for recovery and by the time he starts jogging again it could be anywhere upwards of five months.

“He is top grade and he can’t afford to lose three to five lengths in any grade, let alone top grade, so it will make it difficult for him to come back, but you never say never.”

Beasley recalled the horrible moment when he found out that Hostile had been injured, having been celebrating immediately after the run.

“I didn’t even realise that he got hurt. The owners were at the front of the grandstand and I was walking back from the boxes smilling and we were giving the thumbs up to each other.

“When I got back to the finishing post Ron Arnold told me to get to the vet because the dog was in a bit of trouble – so the first 50 metres back was good, the last 50 metres was gut-wrenching.

“The whole thing is shattering. You get a dog good enough to compete in these races – he is a dream come true for us blokes – he is life-changing, and then this happens.

Hostile has been a terrific chaser for Beasley and his owners, as a winner of 13 races from 36 starts and $125,600 in prize money earnings. The son of Collision and Restless Style won the Listed 2014 Cup Night Sprint at Sandown Park, while earlier this month he finished third in the Group 1 Australian Cup at The Meadows.

Beasley said that his black powerhouse will be returning home to his residential property, located just 10 minutes outside of the Melbourne CBD.

“He’ll come back here and recover, his owner lives next door to me, and we’ll just have to play it by ear and see what happens,” he said.

“Hopefully he might get a couple of ladies to come and visit him. 

The stud game is a very commercial market and it is a tough one, but who knows?”

Beasley, although understandably distraught, is still thankful for the incredible thrills that Hostile gave him during his highly-successful career on the track.

“We enjoyed the ride while we had it and the dog owes us nothing. He is a lovely dog to train and he gave 110 per cent every time. Even on Saturday night he had a horrific run but he still kept coming.

“His form in 2015 was outstanding and I said to the owner the other day that he was on the verge of winning a big one, but unfortunately now we wont get that opportunity.

“

I still cant believe that it has happened, but that’s racing.”

Watch Hostile’s last win, claiming a heat of the Golden Easter Egg from box one.

Time to go back to basicshttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/administration/time-to-go-back-to-basics/63328 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/administration/time-to-go-back-to-basics/63328#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 10:08:31 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63328 Read More.. ]]> WE ARE indebted to Robert Gottleibsen in The Australian (27 March) for a suggestion that could be worth millions for the racing industry. It comes (again) from the Sage of Omaha, Warren Buffet, who has an international reputation for profitable investments.

Briefly, Buffet, with help from his partner 3G Capital, is moving away from buying into under-valued companies and into badly managed ones. Once there, 3G “will implement the technique it used at Heinz called “zero-based budgeting”, an austerity measure that requires managers to justify every one of their spending plans from scratch every year.”

Managers must prepare each year’s budget starting with a blank sheet of paper. Then they enter the amount of cash, resources and people they need to complete their task, along with a justification for each project. No more taking last year’s figures and adding a bit.

So far, the technique has worded brilliantly. Burger King and Heinz are returning huge profits and they are now attacking Kraft. These are not small companies.

The approach could work wonders for raceclubs and state authorities which work under systems and structures 70 years old and are, in practice, never brought to account for what they do. Certainly, auditors check the arithmetic but not whether the spending was worthwhile. Rebuilding crook tracks with the same faults comes to mind. Another is subsidising already profitable breeders so as to compete with neighbouring states.

In a similar vein, why not go back to scratch with the Rules of Racing? For the most part they are about the same age as the creaking management systems and are under strain again as managers try to recover lost ground after the live baiting sagas.

To illustrate the point, here are some examples of rules which do not cut the mustard.

Family differences?

An obvious stampede in recent weeks has been the rush to upgrade state racing rules to overcome what can be described only as bumbling policies of the past – to wit, the ability to play musical chairs whenever a trainer is suspended. It was always a rort to allow the wife to take over from the banished husband, or vice versa. It indicated a system out of touch with reality, and concerned only with the looks rather than the substance.

Not just here but everywhere

The biggest clanger in the Australian racing rules would have to be the penalty for a fighter*. For the first offence it is suspended for 28 days, but only at the track where the offence occurred. But why only there?

There is not a shred of evidence to show that the track has anything to do with the act of fighting. A dog fights for one or more of three main reasons: (a) it has a head problem, (b) it is poorly trained or educated, or (c) it is injured. In practice, authorities would be doing everyone, including the dog, a favour by outing it at all tracks. At the least that would give the trainer more incentive to try to correct the problem.

No dough please

The next biggest clanger continues on from fighting penalties. Greyhound racing is the only one of the three racing codes, or any human sport, which does not disqualify, or at least relegate, a runner for fighting or comparable offence. Instead, the offender may well go on to win the race and collect the prize money while the victim gets nothing. Any subsequent penalty is too late for justice to be done.

This is a dumb rule. Absolutely dumb and unfair.

Boxing to win

I saw this again a couple of days ago, but it happens all the time.

Boxes 6 and 8 were emptied by scratchings and there was only one reserve. Where did they put it? In box 6, thereby making the start that little bit more crowded and dicey.

Two systems are in place around the country, one assigning reserves to boxes by ballot, the other by first-in best-dressed. Neither achieves the optimum outcome. So why not use a rule that already exists? For a field of seven (as above) National Rule 22 would leave box 5 vacant. The nearest answer to that in the subject race would be to leave box 6 vacant and put the reserve in box 8. The principle would be to always leave the worst box empty and create the best race possible.

Colour blind

Despite many pleas, no action has ever been taken to upgrade/improve/change greyhound rug colours – with the sole exception of the introduction of the green rug to replace the brown. (Although, long, long ago the nine used to have green spots rather than green stripes).

This despite considerable change over the years in broadcast techniques, track lighting and science generally. 99% of race viewers now do so via SKY or video replays. They are not there in the flesh. Even if they were, there are always some difficulties in identifying dogs at a distance, or in bad weather, or when the sun is coming from the wrong direction.

Make note of three points. Other international jurisdictions do not always follow the Australian example. Some do, some don’t. The availability of dayglo colours is always there, no doubt at increasingly cheaper prices. Even the basic clothing stores now stock them for workers’ jackets. And, while we are aware that authorities may have received advice from manufacturers, there is no evidence that professional colour consultants have been brought in. Remember that the manufacturer may know lots about his cloth but little about the circumstances in which the colours will be used.

Critical matters to examine would be (a) any confusion between red and pink, (b) similarities between 2, 3 and 9, particularly when worn by dogs having white in the mix, and (c) differences between the 4 and 6. In each of these cases they are fine when standing in front of the viewer but not so in the heat of battle in the back straight.

For a start, changing to dayglo green (6) and dayglo pink (8) would immediately help with those problems. However, I would bow to the expertise of a professional who really knows his colours.

Choices, always choices

Much like the laws of the land, racing rules always increase in number, never decrease. Nowhere is this more painful than in grading where trainers now have over 120 different options to pick from across all the states. In most jurisdictions grades 1 and 2 have almost disappeared, instead being replaced by Best 8s, Free-For-Alls or their equivalent.

Wins in many feature races no longer count at all when assessing a dog’s grade. Why so? Where is the logic?

At the bottom end the choices keep doubling as authorities and clubs pander to poor quality racers or, more correctly, to trainers of slow dogs.

To cater for the myriad of possibilities, authorities divert punters’ cash to pay for increasingly complex and expensive computer programs to sort out all the nominations, not only for local runners but also for dogs visiting from other states where different rules apply. This is bureaucracy gone mad.

Note

* I refuse to use what is apparently the politically correct term “mar” or “marring”. Some time back the word “fight” was removed from the racing rules. What we have now is incorrect English. Here are the respective definitions from the Macquarie dictionary. One is basically an outcome; the other describes the specific act.

“mar”: to damage, impair, ruin, disfigure, deface.

“fighting”: to engage in battle or in a single combat, attempt to defeat or subdue, or destroy an adversary, to cause or set (a boxer, dog, etc) to fight.

Please cross out one. And the next time you go out into the street and see a couple of dogs actually “marring”, write in and let us know.

Upsets galore in 2015 Ipswich Auction semi-finalshttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/queensland-greyhound-racing/upsets-galore-in-2015-ipswich-auction-semi-finals/63324 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/queensland-greyhound-racing/upsets-galore-in-2015-ipswich-auction-semi-finals/63324#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 01:35:01 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63324 Read More.. ]]> FAVOURITE backers had a rough time at the office at Ipswich on Saturday, with a night of upsets in the semi-finals of the Group 2 Ipswich Auction series.

The first semi saw the in-form Whata Nice Size start the heavily supported top elect from box one, following on from his 31.06 heat win the week prior. The son of Elite Blue Size and Chevy Cherokee walked out of the boxes before pushing up along the fence where he found trouble and fell heavily around the first turn. In the meantime, reserve runner Maywyn’s Keeper cruised around the outside from box eight, assuming the lead and shot clear down the back straight. The Robert Essex-trained chaser crossed the line one-and-a-half lengths clear of Razen Toast (box five) in a respectable 30.98 over the 530-metre trip.

Maywyn’s Keeper started at the odds of $42.30 having not won a race prior to Saturday’s semi-final. The son of Magic Sprite and Where’s Asher now has 14 starts for one win and five minor placings.

The second semi-final was wide open, with six of the eight runners starting under double figures. Punters eventually settled on With A Gee from the pink, but the black dog got caught wide around the first turn after a moderate start. Sivamet (box seven) led the field down the back ahead of Majestic Jester (box four) and Derek Zoolander (box three), but In The Picture (box two) started winding up strongly and weaving his way through the field. The big 35.7 kilogram greyhound cruised by the leader on the home turn, stretching out to score by three lengths in 30.77. With A Gee ran a very good race to finish second and book his spot in the final.

In The Picture is yet to miss a place from six career starts, winning once with three seconds and two thirds around Ipswich and Lismore for trainer Mark Wilkes.

Waikarie Magic (box three) looked the good thing in the third semi-final and was subsequently sent to the boxes as the $2.40 favourite. The Brian Baker-prepared youngster was outpaced in the early stages, but was able to find a gap on the first turn and slip into second spot behind Maywyns’s Ying (box two). Despite her best efforts, Waikarie Magic was unable to reel-in the lamplighter which gave Robert Essex his second qualifier for the $40,000-to-the-winner final when scoring at double figure odds in a handy 30.93.

Maywyn’s Ying, a son of Bonshaw Boy and Maywyn Or Ebay, collected his first win at start 12 after running second in his semi-final last week.

The fourth semi-final was a rough house affair with Blue Scorpion (box four) and Iffi Wins (box five) both falling around the first turn, with outside runners War Picture (box seven) and Pacific Champ (box eight) able to avoid most of the trouble, crossing over to the rails. War Picture had the advantage of the rails running into the back straight and was able to kick away from his main challenger which held on gamely to second spot throughout the entire race. At the finish, War Picture finished three-and-a-quarter lengths clear of Pacific Champ in an impressive 30.80. Favourite Waikarie Warrior (box three) found trouble and finished well back in the field.

War Picture gave Mark Wilkes his second semi-final winner, with the victory bringing up his seventh career triumph at start 20.

The Group 2 Ipswich Auction final will be run and won next Saturday night with winning connections pocketing $40,000.

Group 2 Ipswich Auction final box draw

Team Dailly dominates Group 1 Golden Easter Egg semi-finalshttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/team-dailly-dominates-group-1-golden-easter-egg-semi-finals/63311 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/team-dailly-dominates-group-1-golden-easter-egg-semi-finals/63311#comments Sat, 28 Mar 2015 12:31:14 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63311 Read More.. ]]> TEAM Dailly conquered at Wentworth Park on Saturday night, claiming three of the four semi-finals of the Group 1 Golden Easter Egg over 520-metres.

The powerful Victorian kennel had Dyna Nico (box four) engaged in the first semi after gaining a start following the scratching of Bad Boy Sniper. The daughter of High Earner and Maple Bale was at double figure odds, with the odds on favourite being Paul Stuart’s boom youngster Over Limit (box eight). Although Over Limit clocked a quick 5.41 early, he was no match for Dyna Nico’s 5.30 first split, with 28 kilogram bitch bounding straight on the bunny. Over Limit managed to sneak into third spot down the back behind Dyna Nico and Zipping Midge (box three) but, despite making good ground, he was unable to reel-in the leader which clocked a fast 29.55.

Dyna Nico had not won since January when she saluted in The Collerson on Paws of Thunder night and she has now won 11 races from 45 career starts.

In the second heat, Dyna Double One started the $1.80 favourite for Andrea Dailly ahead of dual Group 1 winner Dyna Villa (box six). Drawn beautifully in box one, Dyna Double One delivered on the potential he has always promised, pushing up along the inside around the first turn and sprinting clear to score by a massive 10 length margin in 29.55. Ronray Spirit (box four) ran a strong race to finish second and book his spot in the decider. Dyna Villa was never in contention after an average start and finished well back in sixth spot.

Semi-final three was the only qualifier which didn’t have a representative from the Dailly camp, but the Victorians still dominated. Recruitment (box one) and Hostile (box eight) started the equal $3.00 favourites and both were punching up for the lead in the early stages along with Zipping Abby (box seven), with the rails runner getting the upper hand. The three front runners fought out a tough battle throughout the race, but Deborah Coleman’s Recruitment was too strong at the finish, scoring by one-and-a-half lengths in 29.60. Hostile ran a gallant second but unfortunately broke a hock just after the line.

The final semi-final was a wide open affair, with punter’s settling on National Derby winner Fernando Bale (box five). Beginning flawlessly in 5.27, the son of Kelsos Fusileer and Chloe Allen was never headed throughout the event, reaching the line two lengths clear of Dawkins Bale in a blistering of 29.34. Credit must go to the runner-up which ran a terrific race to clock 29.47 himself – its not too often you see a dog being beaten at Wentworth Park in that time!

Fernando Bale has now won 12 of his 17 career starts for trainer Andrea Dailly and will be one of the main contenders in next Saturday’s $250,000-to-the-winner final.

The first heat was an open affair with Ted Medhurst’s Lillycette starting the punter’s elect from box four. The Tasmanian bitch began brilliantly from the middle alley, but was headed early by Unix Bale (box two) which punched up along the rail to take the lead. Past the post on the first occasion and Unix Bale was well out in front, with Zipping Felix (box seven) making good ground into second spot. Marty Hallinan’s greyhound started taking ground off the leader down the back before railing through and assuming the lead on the home turn, kicking clear to score by four-and-three-quarter lengths in 41.99 ahead of Lillycette and a tiring Unix Bale back in third.

The second heat was set to be a clash between terrific staying bitches Lady Toy (box five) and Sweet It Is (box two), the latter resuming from more than three months on the sidelines, but it turned out to be a one act affair. Sweet It Is, a multiple Group 1 winner, began uncharacteristically well but was severely checked in the early stages, being relegated back to fourth behind lamplighter Nicki Fields (box four). Lady Toy on the other hand was able to zip around the outside of the leader in the home straight on the first occasion and from there she put on a terrific front-running display, with the super-strong Sweet It Is unable to get within seven-and-a-half lengths of the winner on the line which clocked a sensational 41.90. Both bitches will line up in the decider next week, with Sweet It Is sure to strip fitter for her run in the heat.

Space Star (box six) was a dominant favourite in the third and final qualifier, where he was first up after finishing third in the Group 1 Superstayers at The Meadows earlier this month. Stepping well, the black chaser showed why he is currently rated the best stayer in the country, scoring a terrific 41.71 victory after leading throughout ahead of Zipping Maggie and Opec Bale. 



Trained by Rob Britton, Space Star has now won 21 of his 33 career starts with nine minor placings.

Soda Lad is an exciting prospect and he comes here after winning two of his first three at Shepparton and both wins have been in sizzling times. He is armed with brilliant early speed and with a clean getaway tonight he should be able to lead from go to whoa and with a clear passage he should be able to post an impressive overall time.

Bowl ‘Em Out is another promising speedster and he really caught the eye when scoring here last time in 30.14, on that occasion he was able to lead throughout, I don’t think he will be able to cross the red so the quinella spot looks best tonight.

Virginia Rose has been placed in seven of her past eight starts with two of those being victories, she can be a little hit or miss early but if she settles in a prominent spot she could give the two favourites something to think about.

No Diggity rounds out the chances, she is rising in class tonight but she has the good draw and she has speed to burn.

Allen Quarian is a great talent when switched on and he appears drawn to be a major factor, he hasn’t had a lot of luck in recent runs but four starts back he did post a strong 30.58 Cranbourne win and a repeat of that will see him figure prominently. The rails draw is a big advantage tonight and if he can settle in the top three early he will prove too strong in the run home.

All Bar One showed great early speed in her strong 30.16 win here two runs back and she is unbeaten in two starts over this track and trip, there is a fair bit of speed underneath her tonight but if she steps well she should have the speed to get across at the first bend.

Cosmic Tate could be the value, he has scored some great wins on the provincial circuit to date and he is armed with a great turn of foot soon after box rise. There is some concern that he may struggle to get the journey but he should still give a great sight.

Cadence Bale and Pretty Boy Grigg round out the chances, if they swapped draws both would be top chances, however from their poor draws tonight they will need a lot of things to go their way.

Fratelli Fresh is racing in rare form at present and she should prove very hard to hold out from the red. Last time out she reeled off blistering sectionals when winning at Bendigo in 27.81 and if she can hold a top three spot early she should prove too good for them. She won’t be flashy odds tonight so it may be best to anchor her on top in your exotics.

Sam Harper is a classy chaser and in recent months he has been absolutely flying, he has won three on the trot in strong company on the provincial circuit and if he can avoid early bother he will take a power of beating. I would prefer him from a rails draw but he is going too well to ignore.

Dyna Keitaro can be hard to follow at times but there is no denying his talent, four starts back he destroyed a handy lineup when scoring at Sandown Park in a sizzling 29.32 and if he reproduces that effort he will feature at nice odds.

Zeppelin Bale must also be respected, he doesn’t win very often these days but he has been racing in stronger company and he does have a good record here, with some luck early he could add value to your exotic bets.

Lunar Eclipse absolutely roared around this circuit last week when posting a breathtaking 29.78 and from the red he should get every chance to reproduce that type of effort. His box manners aren’t great but he does muster speed at a rate of knots and if he can push through and lead he will break away mid race. He appears to be getting better with every run and he should continue to work his way through the ranks.

Boxhead is drawn to get the run of the race and he should sit on the hammer of the red for most of the journey, I don’t think he can reel him in but he should be good enough to grab the quinella spot.

Hanging In There has won three on end in fine style and his sectionals are super competitive, I think he will have trouble crossing the red tonight but if he can sit outside him early he should be able to hold on for some minor money.

Cosmic Yap is probably the only other chance, I don’t think he can win but he hit the line strongly in his heat and if there is trouble up front tonight he could run home into a place again.

9TAN TIKI [5]Res.32565NBTV Borg (Hoppers Crossing)

Coulta Rock is dropping considerably in class and he should get all the breaks from his good draw tonight. He is normally a very reliable beginner and he showed great early and mid race speed when placed here last week. If he can drive across and lead tonight he should be able to set up a nice lead mid race and he should prove too strong from his rivals.

Beks is the clear and obvious danger, he loves racing over this track and trip and he is extremely strong, my only concern with him tonight is that he is drawn poorly as he will be looking to get wide at the first bend. If he can gain a clear passage through the first turn he should be right in the mix at the end.

Mepunga Tiara is better than her recent form reads and she has the speed to lead them up, she is likely to be around the $6 mark tonight and she could be worth an each way ticket if you’re looking for value.

Coral has returned to racing in good style and she is ready for this staying test, she meets some good ones tonight but with a clear run she should handle herself quite well.

Lektra Outlaw is racing very well at present and from the red draw I can easily see him leading throughout. Last time out he showed terrific early and mid race speed before scoring at Sandown in 29.59 and he tends to race better here, so if he finds the lure tonight he should be running sub 30 seconds.

Repayments is likely to start favourite and he is unbeaten here in three runs, the only concern with him is that he can miss the kick on occasions and he may get squeezed out in the initial stages, with a clear run he is a major threat.

Lektra Utopia is armed with good early speed and he must be respected, he scored a strong 30.06 win here three runs back and he should match motors with the red for most of the journey tonight.

Quarrel Bale can be costly at times but there is no doubting his talent, from the awkward draw he is likely to find bother again but if he somehow flukes a gap mid race he could get the cash at good odds.

Deadly Vane didn’t have a lot of luck in his middle distance debut at Sandown and I’m expecting a better performance tonight. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does have a devastating turn of foot, from the pink he should get every chance to utilise that speed and he should be able to carve across and assume control at the first bend. If he finds the lead he should be able to break away mid-race and that should be enough to score at each way odds.

Quasi Bale is the clear danger and he is expected to start a short priced favourite. Two starts back he destroyed a gun lineup when he captured the Richmond Derby and he does look well placed in the red tonight, he is the best chaser in the field but I think he will be very short tonight and I think the pink will be value.

Weblec Belle is making her middle distance debut and if she gets away she should run a big race, he box manners can let her down at times but she can whip around them at the first bend and if she settles in the top three she should be quite strong in the run to the line.

Elfen Bale is a very reliable beginner and she appears to be getting better and stronger with every run, she is suited to the wide draw tonight and she has won four of six over this journey. There is absolutely no speed drawn underneath her tonight so if she steps cleanly she should be able to get across and hold the pink out early. She is a very fast chaser when on the lure and I think she will give a great sight.

Quantum Bale should follow the seven across early and they should have a great battle, I think he is a better dog when he can lead and that’s why I have given the edge to the seven, there shouldn’t be too much between them when they hit the line and it looks to be a nice quinella.

Ollie Bale has a great record here and if he can avoid early bother he won’t be far away at the end, the box draw is a big concern tonight but there is no doubting he is capable of winning this with a clear run.

Nockabout Aussie is in the same boat, he is a huge talent but he relies heavily on luck in running, he will likely settle back in the field tonight but he can run home and grab some minor money.

Splash Mountain has come up with the good draw tonight and I think he can turn the tables on Sugar Lips after they went head to head here two weeks ago. On that occasion Sugar Lips held him out and she was able to hold her margin in the run to the line, tonight he should have the speed to hold Sugar Lips out and therefore he should run away with the prize.

Adam Handler is the danger in my eyes, he is flying at present and he looked very impressive when winning her in 30 flat last time out. The draw isn’t great but he did exit this draw when winning last time so with another clean getaway he should put himself into contention at the first bend.

Penance Allen is the run on type in the event, she turned in a strong effort when placed here two runs back and prior to that she charged home to score at Sandown. She will get too far back early to win but she is a must for your exotic bets.

One Dee is normally a very reliable beginner and she should be able to assume control at the first bend tonight. She has been smartly placed in her past few runs at Shepparton and she has won here previously in a very slick 29.96. There are a couple of handy ones in this event but if she can find the early lead she will prove very hard to reel in.

Cosmic Wise has the class edge and with clear running she will probably win, however from the six draw she will need a lot of things to go her way in the early stages and she tends to race best when she can dictate the terms, this is a drop in class for her though, so she can’t be dismissed even if she does find bother.

Zell Bale could be value, he is much better than his form indicates and he does tend to race well here, I’m not convinced he is a winning chance but he could be good value for the place.

Crackerjack Rose rounds out the chances, she should get a nice cart across early and she has good early speed. She has won four of 15 here with a further six placing’s and she has raced well from wide draws in the past.

Billo’s Pick has excelled since coming from NSW and he should open up his account in town with ease. From the wide draw he should get plenty of room to balance up early and with a speedy beginner in box seven he should get a nice cart across. He has run fast times at Lismore over this distance range and he appears to have found a few lengths since then, so with an ounce of luck at the first bend he should be winning.

Jamiela Twist has plenty of talent but she can be hard to follow at times, from the red draw she should begin a little better than normal and if she can settle in the first three she will be very strong in the run to the line.

Angel Of Music has the speed to lead and she is a must for the exotics, she has been placed in two of three here and she runs a dynamic 400-metres before getting tired, she will get reeled in but she should snag some minor money.

Exuberant is in good hands and he will be well fancied, he was a good winner here three runs back but my concern with him is that he can bomb the start at times.

King Surfa is an absolute speed demon and he will look the winner for most of the journey, however he can stitch up in the home straight. He will probably be around the $3 mark tonight and I’m willing to take the chance that he can hang on for victory. He has had three runs from a spell and he should be ready for this assignment.

Aces And Angels also has high speed and if he gets across early he will take a power of beating, he has won three of his past four impressively and he should be there at the end.

Maximum Chez is another with early speed and she should be suited to the wide draw, I’m a little concerned about the speed around her tonight but if she pushes through early she is good enough to score and she will be good value.

Ozzy Bale is the run on type in the event and he is dropping in class tonight, he should get a nice run through at the first turn and he could be a good anchor for second and third in your exotics.

In the Stewards room: Live-baiting trainer inquires to commencehttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/in-the-stewards-room-live-baiting-trainer-inquires-to-commence/63260 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/in-the-stewards-room-live-baiting-trainer-inquires-to-commence/63260#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 21:24:01 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=63260 Read More.. ]]> GREYHOUND Racing New South Wales (GRNSW) announced on Friday that the inquiries surrounding suspended participants who are alleged to have been involved in the practice of live baiting will commence next week. The first to face the stewards is Zeke Kadir, who ran the popular break-in facility ‘Wilshire Park’ where secret surveillance cameras exposed footage of live animals being tied to the lure to entice greyhounds to chase. He has been directed to attend his inquiry at GRNSW’s Rhodes office at 10am Monday, March 30.

The other inquiries involve registered participants who are believed to have been caught on the video evidence provided to GRNSW. They are as follows:

  • Donna Grech – Tuesday March 31 at 1pm
  • Ian Morgan – Tuesday March 31 at 4pm
  • John Cauchi – Wednesday April 1 at 10am
  • David Sundstrom – Wednesday April 1 at 1pm
  • Wayne Smith – Wednesday April 1 at 4pm
  • Majella Ferguson – Thursday April 9 at 11am

On Monday, GRNSW made the decision to scratch four greyhounds trained by Lisa McFarlane which were engaged to compete at Wentworth Park after she and Ian McFarlane were issued with a seven-day work directive in regards to the condition of their training facility following on from a routine kennel inspection.

On the same day, GRNSW Stewards completed their inquiries into the analyst’s findings after a urine sample taken from Flying Fabulous after it won at Goulburn on April 15 2014 was found to contain the banned substance 6-alpha-hydroxystanozolol.

The inquiry initially commenced during December last year, but was adjourned twice.

Evidence was given by trainer Sean Bailey, trainer Kim Mulrine, attendant Andrew Mulrine, trainer Alan Ivers and Dr Adam Cowley from the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory (ARFL). Written evidence was provided by ARFL Senior Veterinarian Dr Carig Suann, the ARFL, Racing Analytical Services VIC, and from GRNSW.

After considering the evidence given, it was determined the greyhound Flying Fabulous had been under the care of Bailey at the times associated with the findings of the prohibited substance in the urine sample. The greyhound had been taken to Mulrine’s property for re-education due to bad box behaviour where it was left for three days prior to the race in question.

No evidence was supplied as to the reasons for the findings in the urine sample, with GRNSW Stewards failing to find any substance containing stanozolol at the properties of Bailey or Mulrine.

As a result, Bailey pleased guilty to failing to present Flying Fabulous free of a prohibited substance and he was subsequently disqualified for a period of five months.

Flying Fabulous was disqualified from the event and the placings were amended accordingly.

IN TASMANIA, owner-trainer Ricki Donaldson has been disqualified for a period of seven years effective from March 24, 2015, through to midnight March 23, 2022. An inquiry was held resulting from an unannounced stewards inspection at Donaldson’s registered property where a greyhound was found to be in poor condition. The RSPCA was notified and a veterinary surgeon attended where the decision was made to humanely euthanise the greyhound. Donaldson was found guilty of a breach of Greyhounds Australiasia (GAR) rule 86(q) which reads:

A person (including an official) shall be guilty of an offence if the person commits or omits to do any act or engages in conduct which is in any way detrimental or prejudicial to the interest, welfare, image, control or promotion of greyhound racing.

IN VICTORIA, trainer Grahame Connell appealed to the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board (RABD) against a decision handed down by Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) Stewards at Shepparton on the February 12, 2015, where he was found guilty and fined $250 for negligence after presenting the wrong greyhound entered to race. He later returned to the track with the correct greyhound. After hearing Connell’s case, the RADB decided to dismiss the appeal on the basis that it had no jurisdiction. Under Local Rule 23 and Sections 83J and 83K of the Racing Act the RADB cannot determine an appeal without the direction of the Racing Integrity Commissioner where the Appeal is in regards to a fine of $250 or less.

Quartz Bale is all class and he was desperately unlucky in a heat of the Easter Egg last week. He is poorly drawn again tonight but he has a wide runner drawn directly on his outside so he should get plenty of room to drive through in the early stages. He is an extremely fast chaser when given clear running and if he steps on terms tonight he should be running around the 29.50 mark. He will be short odds but he does look to be a moral and it may be worth anchoring him up front.

Let It Develop has the speed to lead the first half of the race and he returned to form here last week with an all the way win in 30.03, the time was handy but the manner in which he hit the middle section was most impressive. I dont think he can hold the favourite out but he should fill the quinella spot.

Seven Jacks was smartly placed in a heat of the Richmond Derby two runs back and he should run a cheeky race again, he can be a little hit or miss early but he has a great record here and he is a must for your exotic bets.

Passenger rounds out the chances, he has the good draw and he could run a cheeky race at odds.

Mullaway broke the 600-metre Albion Park track record last time and with an ounce of luck early he should blow them away. He is better over the middle distance journey but he has scored some slick wins at Albion over the 700-metres and he should be able to break up the field mid race. The box draw is a slight concern but there isn’t much speed on his outside so he should get a fairly clear passage.

Grifter Bale has been flying in SA and he ran the hands off the clock when scoring at Angle Park in 43.04 last time. He generally steps quite well and he is armed with a great turn of foot soon after box rise, if he can settle in the top two or three early he should be able to make a good move mid-race.

Lillycette caught the eye with a top 42.48 Meadows win last time and she has the speed to lead for a long way, this is a class rise for her but she should be able to handle it.

Unix Bale is the interesting runner, she is making her staying debut but she gives every indication that she will be able to cover the journey.

Zipping Felix is a must for the exotics, he is a good stayer when on song but he has struggled in recent months, if he found his best he could run a bottler.

Great race and if Sweet It Is has been fully wound up she will take a power of beating at the juicy odds of $2.80 with William Hill. She hasn’t raced since December but at that time she was the best stayer in the land. She has won three of eight over this track and trip and she has produced some of her biggest runs here. Being fresh I’m expecting her to settle a lot closer to the speed than normal and she should prove too strong.

Lady Toy is clearly the second pick and she scored in devastating fashion here last time in 41.85. The concern tonight is that she is drawn in the middle and she will have trouble finding the early lead, she is more than capable of coming from off the speed but she won’t be able to produce those kind of times from off the pace.

Julie Bale has the speed to lead and she should give a nice sight, she isn’t a genuine stayer but she might be able to break away mid-race and that might allow her to steal the prize.

Starc has a solid record here and he has been racing well in this type of company for quite a while now, he normally steps well and he should put himself into contention at the first bend.

Space Star is an absolute beast and with any sort of luck he should blow them away. He commenced his staying career over this track and trip and he has a good record of four wins from nine starts with a 41.84 PB. He is a much better chaser this time around and with a clear run I think he is capable of getting down to the 41.50 mark if the track is in good condition, he is only short at $1.65 but he should win.

Luna Jinx can be very hard to follow at times but she recently beat Space Star in the Group 1 Superstayers series at The Meadows. She trialled well here last week in 41.95 and if she doesn’t get crowded she should test the favourite again.

Psychotic Gold is a classy SA stayer and she was more than competitive in the Zoom Top at The Meadows in February. She will need some luck early but if she gets it she could run a place at nice odds.

Opec Bale rounds out the chances, he has a big engine but he can make mistakes in his races, if he can balance up in the top three he should be there at the end.

10FATHER SKEETA628429.86Leslie Dennis

Over Limit returned to racing with a blistering 29.46 heat win last week and he should be able to go back-to-back. He reeled off a sizzling 5.37 to the first marker last week and if he can reproduce that he should be able to carve across and assume control. I’m expecting the four to carve up the inside division so that should allow him to build up a nice lead mid race and he will be one of the fancies for next week’s final.

Ritza Hattie was a tad disappointing last week but her record here is fantastic and she is able put in a massive run every now and again. Three starts back she posted a highly impressive 29.87 win here and that would be enough for a top three finish tonight.

Bad Boy Sniper was also a little disappointing in his heat but he is all class and he does own a breathtaking 29.43 PB here, he can make mistakes early but if he can balance up in the top three or four early he should be right there at the end.

Midnight Flynn is going to be well supported but he is poorly drawn nearer the inside, if he gets the breaks he can win but at the shorter odds I would be willing to risk him tonight.

Dyna Double One is one of the most exciting chasers on the planet and from the red he is drawn to lead from go to whoa at $2.45 with William Hill. He didn’t have much luck in the early stages of his heat and he was always going to find it difficult to take ground off the super talented Over Limit, if he can lead tonight he should be able to reel off brilliant sectionals and reach the post in under 29.40 and that would see him win comfortably.

Whodat Knockin’ turned in a solid performance when placed in his heat and he is drawn to get the gun run. I dont think he can beat the red but he should be able to follow through at the first bend and he might be able to qualify for the final.

Ronray Spirit caught a few punters by surprise last week with his all the way win in 29.65, I expected him to lead but I did not expect him to hit the line as well as he did, I think he will struggle to lead tonight but if he can sit outside the red he should take home some minor money.

Sisco Rage and Dyna Villa round out the chances, both are class acts and they just need some luck in the early stages to feature.

Recruitment pulled out an absolute bottler here last week and he has come up with his favourite draw tonight. Last week he showed very good early speed and settled a few lengths behind the in form and brilliant Fernando Bale before he took ground off the leader in the run home. His effort was brilliant and from the rails draw tonight I can see him making every post a winner.

I’m Pedro continues to go from strength to strength and he really impressed me last week also. He has the speed to settle in the top two or three early and he appears to be getting stronger all the time, he will be nice odds in this event and he could be the value at $6.50 fixed with William Hill.

Hostile will start short and he is clearly a chance, however he has a wide runner drawn underneath and he may be posted wide throughout, he is a winning chance but tonight I think place chances appear best. The smokey could be Winsome Senor, he powered to the line here last week and with four runs under his belt after a spell he should be ready to show his best.

Fernando Bale continues to do everything right in his races and with slow beginners on either side he should be able to lead from go to whoa. He has won four of five over this journey and two of those wins have been in sub 29.50. Fingers crossed he can do everything right because I think it will be an amazing final with him, Over Limit and Dyna Double One all expected to advance.

Dawkins Bale is a great talent and he has won three on the trot in great style, from the red he should be able to drive through and settle on the back of Fernando Bale, I dont think he will be able to reel him in but he should grab the quinella spot.

My Bro Fabio is clearly the fastest chaser overall and with a clear run he will take some stopping, however his racing pattern means that he will need too many things to go right, so place claims look best tonight.

Lamia Bale rarely runs a bad race and she could cause an upset, she was a tad disappointing last week but that was her first look at the track so she should find a few lengths.

All Too Fancy has scored some tremendous wins on the provincial circuit of late and she should be able to use her brilliant early speed to her advantage. Two starts back she broke the Temora track record and she has won here previously in a sizzling 29.81, if she can turn in a similar effort tonight she should be able to lead throughout.

Rare Pearl is capable of anything when switched on but he can make a lot of mistakes in his races, the red draw should suit tonight and if he can avoid bother in the first 50m he will prove hard to hold out. My concern with him is that he is going to be very short and it’s hard to take short odds about a dog who does so many things wrong in running.

Gorham Bale is better than his form reads and he loves racing from inside draws, he will get back early on but he does hit the line well and he could salute at nice odds.

To A Tee is never far away in this company and he has been racing in good company of late, I dont think he can win tonight but he is a must for the exotics.

Flash Earner is ideally drawn in the pink and three starts back she recorded a slick 29.94 win here from this box. Since resuming from a spell she has gone from strength to strength, she is dropping in class tonight and with a clean getaway she should be able to lead throughout.

Margins is much better than his recent form suggests and he should run an improved race, he doesn’t begin very well but he does possess a nice turn of foot and he should be able to push through into a prominent spot early.

Jack Kade is hit or miss at box rise but he sizzled mid race in his last start win here in 30.08, he is rising in class tonight but he should be able to give a good sight.

Schooner Doll rounds out the chances, he has a solid record here and he can show great early speed at times.
