The opening event, heat one of the WWP 310 Maiden heats saw Rapid Guy Luke, who had been producing good early toe over the 440metre starts begin odds on favourite.
It was Imposing Blonde however who showed the early dash, and when the fawn bitch was unable to hold the rails run at the first turn, John Boy for Arthur Jenkins made the most of the opening to scoot away and break his maiden in 18.22 over Kingâ€™s Prize and Smart Soldier.

GRNSW CEO Brent Hogan has today confirmed what the rest of us already know – Australian Racing Greyhound is Australia’s Number 1 greyhound website!
The finding is even more remarkable given most of the rival websites are run by state authorities who virtually force greyhound participants to their sites to use greyhound form tools and online nominations.
In this afternoons GRNSW media release, Hogan acknowledged some of the annual growth on the GRNSW website, thedogs.com.au; had been due to the team of authors employed by GRNSW. And those authors do not come without cost to the NSW industry.

With racing tonight from Cranbourne (Victoria), Wentworth Park (New South Wales), Albion Park (Queensland) and Angle Park (New South Wales), lets just review some of our betting advice for the way those tracks play.
Cranbourne races over the 311m, 520m and 699m distances. Punters should stay away from the 311m races as a short run to the first corner cause unpredictable results and leaders usually win. Box 8 is a huge advantage in these races.

New South Wales GHRRA Stewards have announced their intention to hold an inquiry in to the circumstances surrounding the nomination and subsequent scratching of greyhounds from two seperate meetings at Richmond in April.
The inquiry comes as the result of kennel inspections at the registered kennel addresses of NSW greyhound trainers, Wayne Hogan and Allan King.
Those kennel inspections were prompted by the nominations of four seperate greyhounds for middle distance and staying events at Richmond on the 13th April 2009 and 24th April 2009.

Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhoundâ€™s free Greyhound Racingfor Saturday 18th April 2009 with tonight from The Meadows (Victoria), Wentworth Park (New South Wales) and Cannington (West Australia).
Last nightsconsolidated this weeks efforts and was our third winning night in a row and we are now showing a 9% ROI at Betfair for a nice profit of over $4000.
The curtain comes down tonight of the 2009 Golden Easter Egg Carnical but not before Wentworth Park will host one of the biggest crowds ever seen at the Glebe circuit, with a sensational night of greyhound racing, crowned by the best greyhound race seen for more than a decade, the 2009 Group 1 Golden Easter Egg.
The tantalising clash between Miss Elly Mint and El Galo has been given greater importance as Seona Hood and Jason Thompson have annouced their intention to retire El Galo to stud after tonight’s race, should he win the $150,000 to the winner race. That talk has intensified as they have given indications that not onyl will he go to stud, but his stud service price will be an amazing $3,300 per serve. That price is the equal of his own sire, Where’s Pedro who is already proven as sire; and will be a record for a debut sire.
Of course El Galo’s sire price is not the only record on the line tonight. Should he win El Galo will create a new all time stakes record for a greyhound of $622,590, shooting past Rapid Journey’s current record of $530,995. Miss Elly Mint is aiming to add to her stellar record and claim win number 22 from her last 23 starts, Joanne Monelli is attempting for WA’s first win in Australia’s premier event, and both Joanne Monelli and Spiral Glory are trying to finish better than third to be the best performed progeny from an import sire in the Golden Easter Egg’s 19 year history.

Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhoundâ€™s free Greyhound Racingfor Wednesday 11th March 2009. Last nightâ€™s were to say the least a disaster, giving back a lot of the ground we’d made over the previous two nights. And while a couple of the were unlucky, it was more a case of poor fields and interference plagued racing on inferior greyhound tracks which caused the blowout.
Our two winners won well, namely Burra Bye and Lochinvar Milano but both started shorter than expected. Of the beaten brigade Lochinvar Polo was desperately unlucky, getting carted off the course on more than two occassions and still running a close third, he is the only addition to the Australian Racing Greyhound Specials.

The weather must be playing on the minds of those at GRV HQ as only minutes after we published our observations on their leadership with regard to greyhound racing in hot conditions, they have announced that today’s Traralgon Greyhound Racing Clubâ€™s twilight race meeting has been cancelled.
Today’s Wangaratta meeting has gone ahead though with temps in the 35C’s and rising rapidly.

In contrast to the GRSA who have given clear and early advice of meeting cancellations due to extreme heat, the GRV have clearly failed to deliver the same kind of leadership on an issue which cuts to the heart of Animal Welfare in the greyhound industry.
While cancellations have been the norm in the thoroughbred codes for the past few days, and GRSA have cancelled three meetings due to temperatures being forecast to go past the 40C mark; Greyhound Racing Victoria seems to have adopted a “turnover at all costs” attitude.
