Blinder is has been racing in much stronger company of late and she should return to the winners list tonight. She is normally a very reliable beginner and she should set a very fast pace. Two runs back she posted a top placing here behind Al Moran and a similar effort tonight would see her win very easily. Chappy is well drawn out wide and he caught the eye with a slick 28.13 Bendigo win recently and he should fill the quinella spot. Tina Two hasn’t had any luck in her past two runs but she was in good form prior to that, whilst Manbo Man is drawn to show some improvement.

Breaker Kahn was a strong 30.18 winner here last week and he looks well placed in his race. His box manners aren’t the best but he does possess a very good turn of foot and with some room in the first 20m he should be able to settle in the top three early. This is the weakest race he has contested for a while and I would expect him to put them to the sword as they head off the back straight. Mrs Duncan is much better than her recent form suggests and if she can cross from the outside she can play a major role here. Cawbourne Cobra is yet to win here in 13 tries but she has turned in some top performances here previously.

2014 Group Three Casino Cup Heats Preview http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-three-casino-cup-heats-preview/56226 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-three-casino-cup-heats-preview/56226#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 22:38:03 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56226 The best 32 greyhounds nominated for the 484m distance at Casino on Friday will contest the heats of the Group Three Casino Cup.

The first of the four heats kicks off in the Northern Rivers area of NSW at 1:59pm. The first two place-getters in each heat will contest next week’s $25,000 to-the-winner final.

Here’s a look at the top chances in each heat:

Heat One – Group Three Casino Cup (Race 5 at 1:59pm)

The Northfield family is never without a talented chaser and in the first heat Bralyn Stalker (7) gets to show his wares in what appears to be his toughest assignment to date. Coming into the race, the large 38kg chaser by El Grand Senor and Bralyn Maisie (Firefly Boy – Moulamein) has won 9 from 13, including three from four at Casino and a personal best of 27.33. He is a great beginner and has won from the box. Bralyn Stalker’s mother was a handy conveyance, winning the Casino Cup in 2006 and the National Futurity and Ladies Bracelet in 2007.

Sassy Dior (1) has the fastest best time in the race. Back in September last year she stopped the clock at 27.12. She had four months off not long after that run, returned to racing for one month and then was off again for another four months. On her first run back she had a fall but has since recovered from that to be a last start winner at Lismore. She loves box one, winning four from six. She has had three wins at the track.

Trenty’s Rose (2) has had just six starts in her short career but has won four of them. Three of her wins have been over the 411m distance at Casino. She stepped up to 484m last week and won in 27.77. She is likely to improve on that and has been drawn in a position where she can show her early speed.

If you’re looking for dogs that have had plenty of racing experience then you can’t go past Gloria Trick (6) and Wilhelm (8). Both chasers have been racing around Albion Park. Gloria Trick finished second to the flying Miner’s Moss last week over the shorts at Albion Park. The only issue for both greyhounds is that they don’t have great records from their respective boxes.

Heat Two – Group Three Casino Cup (Race 6 at 2:17pm)

Glenda Dart’s Nevaeh Beach (1) has drawn perfectly and will start the likely favourite in the second heat. She has a best of 27.36 at the track, which she recorded when winning last week. The El Grand Senor and Runya Beach (Big Daddy Cool – Little Receiver) bitch has won five from seven wearing the red rug.

Glamour Row (5) hasn’t raced since her win in the heat of the Townsville Cup. On that occasion she led all the way to win at big odds. She will again start at big odds for this race but cannot be overlooked. She has won six from 16 at the track with a best time of 27.09.

Glenreagh Rocket (8) knows what it takes to win the Casino Cup after taking out last year’s final. He has won four of his last six starts and has three wins and four placings from seven starts at the track. He also has a good record from box eight, recording five wins and five placings. His best is 27.18.

I’m A Believer (7) has an overall record of 10 wins from 21 starts but is yet to have a start at Casino. He has been unplaced in his last two runs but prior to that had won three of his last four. He will need to begin well from the awkward draw.

Heat Three – Group Three Casino Cup (Race 7 at 2:34pm)

Paw Licking’s sister Kingsbrae Molly (5) will strut her stuff in the third heat. She has the pace to overcome the box but it will be interesting to see how she goes over the 484m distance as she has done all her recent racing over 411m. She has been lightly raced in her career, with just the 19 starts. She has won 11 of those and that is largely due to her almost faultless performances out of the boxes. She has won nine of her last 10 and is sure to be prominent.

Kikem Shilling (2) is a well-bred chaser by High Earner and Bit Sweet (Solve The Puzzle – Chili Berger). She has won two from three at the track. Last week she ran six and a half lengths second behind Nevaeh Beach. Her best time at the track is 27.23.

Birkdale Beauty (1) has not been out of a place in her last seven starts. She has won three of her last five and those wins have been around Lismore and Grafton. She is coming to Casino for her first race-start.

Heat Four – Group Three Casino Cup (Race 8 at 2:52pm)

Pace Ventura (5) has all the pace that his name suggests. He was gallant in the final of the Townesville Cup, finishing second to Farmor Las Vegas. The Run’s House and Sniveller (Bombastic Shiraz – Georgia Brown) dog has won at the track in 27.14 and can easily overcome the poor draw with his speed.

With the pace on the inside, Stev (6) may get a good cart across. He has won twice at Casino for a best of 27.42. He has been in the money in his last four starts and isn’t the worst chance in this race.

Cosmic Dyrva (3) is the form-dog of the race. She has won her last four straight for trainer Glenda Dart. She is yet to win over this distance at Casino with her recent wins coming at Lismore, Tweed Heads and Grafton. She has begun well in all those wins and if she repeats that she may well prove hard to beat.

Dayseas Jet (4) has a mile of experience at the track. She has been around this distance on 17 occasions and has earned herself five wins in the process. Her recent form is patchy with just the three placings in her last 10 starts but those three placings have been in her most recent race performances.

Iva Vision Takes Out The 2014 Group Three SA Derby http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/iva-vision-takes-out-the-2014-group-three-sa-derby/56210 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/iva-vision-takes-out-the-2014-group-three-sa-derby/56210#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:04:54 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56210 Iva Vision did not let punters down when he saluted in the final of the Group Three SA Derby at Angle Park on Thursday night.

The son of Ivan Brown and Visualization (Surf Lorian – Leataro) stopped the clock at a slick 29.57 in an imperious six-length rout.

Iva Vision left box eight in third place behind Dyna Ostrander (6) who was one of the best away with Dyna Alchemist (4) also chiming in. However, the Queenslander used the wide draw to perfection. While the inside division were bustling for a spot he timed his run to the nano-second to get across the field just as he was entering the first corner. From that point, the race was all but over as the 36kg black dog sped away to claim the $25,000 winners cheque.

The two strong chasers Wind Whistler (1) and Texas Titan (7) filled the minors. Wind Whistler’s run was almost as impressive as Iva Vision’s. He copped some interference down the home straight the first time and showed great race sense to wind his way through the field to find some clear running in the closing stages.

Of the others, the chances of top SA hope Aston Kane (3) were obliterated within a few strides of leaving the boxes as he checked heavily off Allen Icarus (2) and lost all momentum.

The Derby win was the tenth career victory for Iva Vision. The Peter Young trained chaser has only faced the starter 15 times, so he is blossoming into a serious race dog. He has now amassed over $50,000 for connections and with the world his oyster, he is sure to be able to add to that over the coming months.

Dyna Zod is much better than his most recent efforts suggests and from the favourable red draw he should kick start the night off in fine style. Four starts ago he recorded a top 25.84 Geelong win and since then he hasn’t had a lot of luck in much stronger company, if he can get away cleanly this really looks his race.

Erza Allen is better suited to a rails draw but this is the weakest race that she would have contested for a while, she can be a tad hit or miss early but if she happens to step she should make an impact. Zander’s Express has finally found his best form again and he should settle in the top two early, this is his first 500m run for a while so his last 50m may be a little shakey.

Rebelation is dropping considerably in class and from the good draw he should be able to settle much closer to the early speed tonight. There is a little bit of early speed drawn on his outside but those runners all like to race in the middle of the track, so he should get all the breaks in the early stages.

Mepunga Fearon has enough speed to find the early lead and he is a class act when on song, my only concern with him is that he may struggle in the final 40m. If he can cross and there is some shuffling behind him, he may just steal the prize. Deadly Boy is racing in great style but I would prefer that he started from an inside draw. Lou Todd rounds out the chances, his effort two runs back behind Gimme Fuel was more than handy and that type of performance would be enough to win this.

Atlas Genius is perfectly placed out wide and he turned in a very strong performance when winning his heat in 34.47. He is normally a reliable beginner and he should settle in the top three early. He has shown a liking for this track having been placed in six of eight tries and with some luck early he looks a value bet.

Zipping Felix can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting that he has tremendous ability. He is going to need luck in the first 50m as per usual but if he gets it he will prove very hard to hold out. Zipping Bart has the good draw and he is aiming for a hat trick of wins, I think he can place but at the $3 mark I believe he is massive unders. Include in your exotics but definitely lay for the win.

Sign Of Snow is dropping in class and from the red he should get every chance to lead all the way. He has won seven of ten from this draw and his recent placings of late suggest that he isn’t far away from saluting again. He will obviously need to lead to win this but with slow beginners drawn directly outside him, this race really looks his to lose.

Hession Boots will be well fancied and is a winning chance, however he will get a long way back in the early stages and he will need a few gaps to open mid race for him to get into contention. Coulta Rock is poorly drawn out wide but he does possess a great turn of foot, so if he can step on terms he should have enough speed to get across. Newfire Riley has seen better days but he is still racing in ok fashion, he must be included in your exotics.

Rinash loves racing from the red draw and he recently scored a blistering 25.71 Warragul win from this pin. He should have sufficient speed to poke through and lead and he has won over this trip previously, so the trip won’t pose any problems.

Hekate Belle can be hard to follow but she showed her true ability with a strong 30.20 Meadows win last week, the manner in which she has been hitting the line of late suggests that she should be able to handle the extra distance. Sonic Pirate could be the smokey, he has turned in some big performances over the 515m trip and he is capable of pinging the lids at times.

Where’s The Surf was gone about a month ago, however his past two placings here suggest that he is getting back to somewhere near his best. There isn’t a lot of speed drawn underneath him tonight, so with a clean getaway he should be able to find the early lead again and he will then prove very hard to gun down.

Hailstorm Billy is super consistent and he has a fantastic record over this track and trip. He can be a little slow to begin at times but he should get plenty of room from the pink to muster speed and if he is close to them off the back, he will make a big impact. Gorham Bale has loads of talent but he does make a lot of mistakes in his races, if he can reproduce his 29.42 PB run here then he can play a major role. Cornelius Fudge is another track specialist and he is great dog to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets, he is likely to get a long way back early but he is always running on strongly.

I know he keeps sucking me in but Dyna Perseus should win if he can avoid trouble in the first 50m. When given clear running he is one of the fastest chasers going round and he can run all day. This is one of the weakest events that he has contested for quite a while and he may actually go round at an attractive price.

Starc beat a similar field here last week and he should be improved by the run as it was his first try over this distance range. The box draw is against him but if he can settle mid pack he should be able to work his way through the field and make an impact. Ruff Cut Diamond was a bit disappointing here last week but she should be much better for the run, whilst Supersonic Hawk is never far away in his races and he may cause an upset.

Reigning Easter Egg Champion Tonk made his middle distance debut last week and although he looked a little flat early, he still managed to hit the line strongly and go down narrowly. He should be much better for that run and with some luck in the early stages he should take a power of beating.

Billy Bowlegs is the interesting runner, he has turned in some monster performances at Wentworth Park and Dapto in his career and he has been jumping a lot better over the 500m journey of late. If he happens to land in the top two he will run a big race. Mystic Twist was a strong 34.36 winner here two runs back and she should be in the mix for most of the trip, whilst He Isn’t Really hasn’t experienced a lot of luck recently and he could show improvement at nice odds.

Warrior King showed he was back to his brilliant best with a scintillating 29.30 win here last week, tonight he is drawn to get a perfect sit behind the one and the two for most of the trip and he should then run over the top of them as they round for home.

Jewel Bale is a super talent but she tends to find a lot of trouble in her races, she is poorly drawn again tonight but she is too good to totally dismiss. Gimme Fuel has enough speed to punch through and lead and three runs back he did lead throughout when scoring a strong 34.33 win here over 595m. Elite Devil could be some value in this event, in his most recent effort he led for a long way and recorded a top placing behind the in form Allen Deed at the Meadows.

Samus Allen is an exciting talent when on song and she should return to form from her good draw. With slow beginners drawn on her outer, she should be able to punch through and lead comfortably, she is a much better chaser on the bunny and if you can find $2.80 or better, that is good shopping.

Peter’s Pick is a gun QLD chaser and he hasn’t had a lot of luck since scoring at Warragul in 25.90 when making his Victorian debut. The big concern with him are his box manners, he tends to bomb the start but then shows a great turn of foot, if he misses away tonight he may get posted wide for a long way. Tiggerlong Amigo is much better than his recent form reads and this is a big drop in class, whilst Unix Bale turned in a top performance at Angle Park two runs back and she will be charging home late.

Droopy’s Bentley has won four of his five starts to date impressively and he is surprisingly well drawn in box six. With the speedy Wild Last Stress drawn on his inside, he should get a nice cart across in the early stages and takeover mid race.

Scanez Cee has been finding the line well in recent times and he was placed behind an in form chaser here last time, if he can get a clear run initially he should be a factor at the business end. Dyna Yemen is an exciting prospect and he will be a short priced favourite, he is very hit or miss early so I think he is a risk at the short odds. Thoughtful Wish will find the line hard and she must be included in your exotic bets.

Race 12 – 515M Grade 5 – 10:52PM

Above All left all onlookers stunned two weeks ago when he set the track alight here with a scorching 29.33 win and tonight with a clear run in the first 50m he is probably capable of going a little bit quicker.

Ulla Allen can ping the lids on occasions and she looks the danger based on her impressive 30.40 Cranbourne win two runs back. Dr. Klaas has only had the one start but she did post a brilliant 25.04 Sale win and she clearly has a heap of talent.

A Hard Choice For Trainers And Others http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/administration/a-hard-choice-for-trainers-and-others/56192 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/administration/a-hard-choice-for-trainers-and-others/56192#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 00:24:43 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56192 Debate about positive and negative aspects of the industry could go on forever, not just in these columns but in the several blogs favoured by some in the industry – mainly owners and trainers. These folk, particularly in NSW, are not happy about many aspects of the industry. They concentrate on fees, prize money and grading, all of which are under the direct control of state racing authorities, each one different from the others.

Their dilemma is emphasised by the actions of the country’s biggest owner, the NSW-based Paul Wheeler, as outlined in his submission to the NSW Inquiry recently. Good dogs go to Victoria, lesser ones to South Australia, and that’s about it. Virtually none go to NSW. This bias is a direct reaction to policies adopted by state authorities – nothing more, nothing less.

With that in mind, I have often written to Racing Ministers, Greyhounds Australasia, state authorities and official inquiries proposing significant changes and improvements to the system. In fact I have been doing that since 1994, starting with the idea of creating a national form database and making it readily available to all, just like the Stud Book. I never had a reply from them, which is par for the course on most subjects,

In fact, good form information is harder to get now than it was 20 years ago. That’s largely due to the secretive way in which WA/NSW set up the Ozchase data system. Whatever else it does, it denies customers access to data-friendly form and results services. Conversely, Victoria, the only state outside Ozchase, is much more helpful.

Anyway, attempting to halt the slide, below I have printed below a copy of part of a letter sent to Greyhounds Australasia over four years ago, hoping that it could spark authorities into action. It never got a reply. I don’t even know if they read it.

This section was titled “The Big Choice”.

“The industry has a choice to make. Should it seek higher quality racing, and with it the potential for better educated and wealthier punters, or should it accept the status quo and run with volume at any cost, any quality and with mug gamblers as the dominant customer group?

With some limited exceptions, the industry has chosen the latter course so far, and all indications are that it will continue that way. In all codes, the top bracket is not the problem. It is the week to week fare that has fallen away.

Indeed, in greyhound racing such a policy is specific and deliberate as administrations and clubs everywhere persist with measures to better satisfy – some might say subsidise – low grade performers. Heavy maiden programs, often with added prize money, events for dogs with limited wins, novice races (ie with a maiden win only) and non-penalty races (ie circumventing the normal grading rules) are routine parts of the effort. No other racing code, no other sport, and no other human endeavour, goes down that path. Well, the Salvos do but do we want to take a page out of their book?”

If anything, these trends have been magnified since 2010, presumably indicating that none of the states have any concern about progress or excellence. Indeed, we should add to the above list the substantial recent shift towards short course racing and the squibs they encourage. In effect, the industry is asking its customers to patronise the equivalent of park football or fourth grade district cricket and to bet on them.

However, they are about to get another poke in the eye. Revenue is at stake this time.

Tabcorp is excited about new ventures into its coverage of international racing, especially from Hong Kong where the season is just starting.  This comes at a time when the wagering scene is in some turmoil as tote turnover is on the decline, while local and overseas-based online bookies battle with authorities and (often) their own customers to grab a bigger slice of the action.

There is no other option but that this move will harm greyhound racing yet not a word has been heard from state authorities, much less from GAL which does not like addressing commercial matters (never mind that its members have to deal with exactly that when they get back to their home states). An already crowded racing program is about to get more so, meaning that greyhounds will get squeezed out the back.

How long can we allow this to continue? And what’s next? The Mongolian marathons are popular in some quarters. And the Kazakhstan races where team members hurl the headless body of a goat from one to the other are very traditional – it’s a bit like a cross between roller derby and horse polo. They could be slipped in between the Swedish trots and the New York gallops, about which gamblers also know absolutely nothing.

 

ON A NARROWER SCALE

There’s a funny thing about the life of a greyhound writer – some readers are happy, some hate you. Such is life. However, I should comment on a couple of matters brought up the other day.

One reader said I was right but negative in my last article (a perplexing comment?). That’s the one in which I congratulated four or five winners, including Zipping Maggie.  I am guessing about the negative bit but it might have been the comments about poor fields at The Meadows and Albion Park being an illustration of the state of the art in this country. In particular, that revolves around the fact that the nation is now running more races but with the same or fewer dogs. Along with other factors, I suggested that we could “ignore this at your peril”.  So far, that has been the attitude of racing authorities.

As always, my articles are fact-based and then often accompanied by opinion or suggestions. Preferably, people who don’t agree should put forward their interpretations so we can get a good balance, but rarely does that happen so you are stuck with me.

Another comment came from someone – apparently a trainer – who suggested I needed to get a dog and a lead and learn properly myself. Now this would be a big mistake, even if I wanted to (and I don’t).  A lifetime of brushing shoulders with trainers tells me that most have very strong opinions but rarely do they ever go into print, which means it’s hard to know what everybody is thinking. Even the NSW Parliamentary Inquiry brought out just a handful.

Anyway, were I to go down that road, I would then become less independent and less inclined to properly evaluate another trainer’s performances. Now, I rarely talk about individual people as such but I do comment on their dogs and what they do. That’s my job.

Two more things: first, having been in the greyhound writing caper for 20 years or so, I must have pointed out a hundred times or more in various articles that the industry’s two greatest assets are its top dogs and the skills of its better trainers.  The problem is that the industry is not taking full advantage of those assets. Second, I cannot claim to represent any one group but if I have a bias it would be towards the serious punter group. They are the people who pay everybody’s wages. They are also the source, potentially, of increased prize money. Consequently, they are more than entitled to express their opinions. In fact, it should be compulsory.

A mix of positive and negative will therefore continue as and when necessary and as supervised by the editor. By all means, keep count if you want to. But please write in, preferably with reasons for your views – there is plenty of space after each article or on the CONTACT section of the website.

Dakota Premier is well placed in the pink box and he should be much better for the run here last week when he was first up from a short spell. Galilee Spirit smashed his rivals when scoring here last week in 29.92. Allen Illem can run home into a place.

Mepunga Armagh never got a look in here last week and if he can step a little better tonight he should be able to lead early and prove too classy for these. Wild Soul continually finds a way to win and he will be suited by the empty draw underneath. Cairnlea Layla is a massive chance if she gets across.

Iva Vision turned in an excellent performance to score here last week in 29.68 and he appears better suited from the pink draw tonight. Aston Kane should lead for a long way and he has a terrific record here having won eight of nine. Wind Whistler will be charging home into a place. Texas Titan could be the surprise packet, he will go around at over the odds but he was super impressive in his heat.

Set The Scene is stepping up to the 600m journey in SA for the first time and he really should put a space in them. Stuzzichino has been racing well of late and he can fill the quinella spot, whilst Jacko Lankan has been placed in two of four over this trip and he will be running home late.

Dyna Motley looks well placed in the red and after being placed in six of his past eight starts, he is bursting to break through. With some luck early he should make light work of this lot. Misato Bale has the speed to lead and he hung on for a solid win here on Monday. Irish Midge is rarely far away and she should get plenty of space in the first 50m of the race.

Happy Haswell is all class and he has been racing in fantastic form at Ipswich recently. If he can reproduce his slick 29.95 PB here, he should score quite comfortably. Bradley Benz has the good draw and he recorded a brilliant placing here two runs back, whilst Fast Noodle can feature with a clear run initially.

Tearaway Size will be short odds but she should get the cash with an ounce of luck early. She has won her past two at Ipswich with the most recent being in a dazzling 30.35. Dutch Stryker should fill the quinella spot, he can ping the lids at times and he recently won here in a smart 30.05.

Going for some value with Give Me Class, stormed home at Ipswich last time after finding bother and I think he can run a big race at nice odds. Gunspeed led all the way here last time in 30.06 and he should give a great sight again. Mister To Us is a huge talent and he will be steaming home late.

Jackson’s Day looks well placed in the pink and he has won his past three starts in brilliant style, Velocity Spice was a blistering 29.82 winner here two runs back and if she pings the lids she will be a major player. Grim Creeper will start favourite and is a chance but he does like to run wide and he will need luck in the first 50m.

2014 Group Three SA Derby Final Preview http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-three-sa-derby-final-preview/56178 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-three-sa-derby-final-preview/56178#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 22:54:13 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56178 Thursday night showcases another night of Group Three racing in South Australia with the final of the SA Derby to be run and won at Angle Park.

The $25,000 to-the-winner event has been taken out in recent years by Turanza Bale (2008) (sire of super-star Xylia Allen), Dyna Forte (2009), Walter Bale (2010), Yowyeh (2011), Spud Regis (2012) and last year’s winner Ernie Bung Arrow.

Queenslander Iva Vision (8) has qualified the fastest for the 2014 final and will be relying heavily on his perfect record out of box eight. He may have trouble crossing this field as there is a bit of pace on the inside with the likes of Allen Icarus (2) and Aston Kane (3). A few strong types will be looking to feature, such as Dyna Ostrander (6), Texas Titan (7) and Wind Whistler (1). They all need luck early to do their best work at the end.

The improver appears to be Dyna Alchemist (4), who got to the lead last week but was just grabbed by Iva Vision. The Collins kennel has noted that he should be improved off that run. Lannister (5) looks to have a challenge ahead of him as he has had just the two wins coming into this final.

The race is schedule to jump at 9:41pm. Here’s a look at each of the greyhound’s in the final and the Centrebet fixed odds market:

Comments: ARG opinion is – This exciting chaser is a real live-chance. He led last week for a dominant 29.78 victory. He is a winner of eight races from nine starts at the track and is a good beginner. This is his first real test to see if he can mix it in the higher grades.

Comments: Tammy Collins (Kennel Representative) – “I expect a lot from him this week. He came into the heats underdone and he had not seen the track. He will be better for the run last week and better for a look at the track. He can begin and he goes straight so the draw shouldn’t be a worry for him.”

Comments: ARG opinion is - He won four in a row around Victorian tracks before being unplaced at Sale and then finishing second in his heat behind Texas Titan. He had box eight last week and after finding early trouble, worked himself into the race well. He obviously has the ability but the draw hasn’t been kind to him. He has had seven goes from box six for just one victory.

Comments: Angela Langton (Kennel Representative) – “They (Wind Whistler and Texas Titan) have both got as much ability as any of the others in the race, it is just a matter of where they are in running. They both just need a clear run…Texas Titan does want to use the track but he will be a fair way off the track out in box seven.”

Aston Kane SA’s Best Hope In Group Three SA Derby http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/aston-kane-sas-best-hope-in-group-three-sa-derby/56162 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/south-australian-greyhound-racing/aston-kane-sas-best-hope-in-group-three-sa-derby/56162#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:45:25 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=56162 The Group Three South Australian Derby is just around the corner. While the final is dominated by Victorian trained dogs, there is a chance that the Derby title will stay in South Australia.

The locally trained dogs in Thursday night’s final are Lannister and Aston Kane. Lannister, a youngster by Premier Fantasy and Cool Keepsake (Big Daddy Cool – Corrumbene Lass), has had just the nine starts for two wins and seven placings. He has been consistent and to his credit, has made a Group Three final. Lannister is trained by Lewiston based trainer Troy Murray. He looks to be up against it in this race as he has drawn in the middle of the field and is surrounded by some very talented chasers.

Another Murray, in the form of Ray, trains one of the hot chances, Aston Kane. Ray Murray is based at Reeves Plains and has a few handy greyhounds in his kennel including Aston Thomas (20 from 52), Caramel Flirt (10 from 37) and Dashing Canute (4 from 6). Aston Kane has been outstanding in his short career, with the El Galo and Aston Elite (Bombastic Shiraz – Elite Oriental) dog clocking up 14 wins from 16 starts. With the good draw, he is in this race up to his ears and represents a big chance of keeping the Derby title in SA hands.

Another chaser in the field with a South Australian connection is Texas Titan, who is locally owned by Nathan Wilson.

The Jeff Britton trained Texas Titan is a brother to another Wilson owned star in Oakvale Destiny, the winner of last week’s Group Three SA Oaks. Texas Titan and Oakvale Destiny form part of the Vapour Whirl and Footluce (Hallucinate – Scarlett) litter that the Wilson-Trowbridge Racing syndicate bred in 2012.

Some more flavour to add to the race is that this will be the second-time the Langton/Britton partnership will be looking to take out both the SA Oaks and SA Derby in the same year. They achieved this feat back in 2011 with Mepunga Nicky and Yowyeh. “We have done it once already and we are hoping to do it again”, Langton told ARG.

The race is scheduled to jump at 9:41pm (SA time). Be sure to check out ARG’s full final preview that includes comments from some of the trainers and an analysis of each greyhound’s chances.

17

Dutchy’s Angel took out the 2000 Traralgon Cup by a head from Trousers with Hotshow Ben third. The Tom Dailly-trained sprinter collected $16,000 for the victory.

Cape Hawke set a new track record for 515 metres at Sandown in 2011, running 29.13 to clip 2/100ths off the previous mark set by Heston Bale just two days earlier.

18
Busy’s Chief won the 1976 NSW Country Championship, run over 580 yards at Wentworth Park. From box eight, Busy’s Chief won by three lengths from Sunset Lodge in a fair 31.35.
On the same night, Olympic Thunder won the Metropolitan Cup over 790 yards by four lengths, also from box eight.

The Larry Procopio-owned and trained stayer What’s New won the 2004 Chairman’s Cup (720 metres, Wentworth Park) defeating Resigned by three-quarters of a length with Victorian Arvo’s Athena just a neck away third.

19
The first night meeting was held at the Bulli greyhound track, in 1952.

Bristol Sue took out the 1974 Adelaide Cup from Prince Arthur and Melwood. The brilliant bitch gave trainer Doug Payne a record of three wins in the three runnings of the premier sprint held in South Australia. He would have to wait 15 years before winning his fourth and last Adelaide Cup (with Kuriarkin in 1989).

Rooney ran a new race record time of 23.80 in taking out the 2006 Warragul St Leger for trainer Darren McDonald.

Keeko Bale won the 2008 Traralgon Cup by just almost seven lengths from Velocette, running a new race record 29.46

20
Red Zero scored by a whopping eight lengths in the 1969 final of the National Sprint Championship, run over 500 yards at Harold Park. The local hope defeated star stayer Busy’s Charm with Queensland sprinter Pied Rebel third and the brilliant Benjamin John fourth. Red Zero earned $6,000 for the victory.

Jesse Bale took out the 2007 Dapto Leagues Club Maiden (formerly known as the Dapto Maiden Thousand), defeating Leroy Brown and Double Trouble in a fair 30.20 to collect the $15,000 first prize money.

21
The Jim Ward-trained Maggiore became the last undefeated greyhound to race at Harold Park before the track closed forever when he scored by five lengths over 457 metres there in 1987. Maggiore took his record to six starts for six wins and was unbeaten in three races at Harold Park.

22
Queensland hope Dancing Gamble scored a brilliant victory in the 1988 National Sprint Championship final, run over 558 metres at the Gabba. Exiting box two, Dancing Gamble defeated fellow Queenslander Daring Coup by three-quarters of a length with NSW star See Yah a similar margin away third. There was controversy after the race when it was found that See Yah’s trainer had neglected to remove the greyhound’s collar prior to loading him into the boxes and See Yah had competed in the race with his collar still on.

23
The Geoff Watt-trained speedster Benny McGrath won the 1972 Singleton Classic (then called the Daphne Smith Memorial Classic), run over 466 metres. Benny McGrath defeated Harold Park specialist El Gazelle by a length with Grand Metal third.

Western Australia registered its first victory in a National Sprint Championship when local hero Mister Toewyte took out the 1978 final, run over 512 metres at Angle Park. Mister Toewyte defeated NSW representative Sole Force with Victorian Ella’s Champion third.

Bogie Leigh set a new track record time of 29.48 for 520 metres at Lismore in 2003.
