Londonderry trainer Tracey Hurst took the honours qualifying two out of her three semi finalists, winning the first and last semis with Fancy Mandy (fastest heats winner 29.63) and last semi with Dancing Surf and going forward into the $50,000 Group 1 final.
While Fancy Mandy’s semi time of 30.23 didn’t come close to the heat time the greyhound was impressive showing great tenacity to push through between runners early to surge clear in the back for a decisive 3 Â½ lengths win. Dancing Surf led all the way to stop the clock in 30.13.
Fancy Mandy was expected to win and went out at 10/9 in the betting while Dancing Surf was the second longest priced runner in his race at 14/1 behind Brendan Wheeler’s Zambola Bale (13/8) which ran seventh after getting into strife early and the run should be forgotten.

As was the problem with the AGRA rankings for racing greyhounds, the Australian greyhound sire rankings haven’t changed since July 2009 due to a lack of group racing finals.
Again, we hope that while the AGRA enjoy their annual junket at Cannington this week, they might sit down and talk about some of the shortcomings of their current system regarding how they ackowledge the best in the country. Under the current system, the State National Distance Championship and State National Sprint Championship winners weren’t even recognised, nor their sires or dams.
So, as the rankings are unchanged from July 2009, all we can really do is compare them to June 2009 to get some idea of emerging trends in the sires ranks.

Welcome toâ€™s for Saturday 29th August 2009 with tonight from The Meadows (Victoria), Wentworth Park (New South Wales), and Cannington (West Australia).
With the majority of the Nationals finalists decided it’s left to WA tonight to find the last two berths for both the National Distance Championship and the National Sprint Championship. Red Shilling is home as the West Australian National Distance Champion, having drawn box 1 again in the final. Doesn’t matter much who gets the second berth, but Red Shilling will be well and truly in the mix when the eastern states raiders arrive.
Linda Britton meanwhile has affirmed her dominance as a leading trainer in her own right, starting 5 of the 8 in the West Australian National Sprint Championship. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on the result, the random box draw has drawn all 5 of her runners next to each other in boxes 1-5. We’ll come to the West Australian Finals

Incoming GRNSW Chief Steward Clint Bentley has passed his first test and while I had always assumed my first article here might have been a brickbat, this time we have to throw a bouquet, well half a one anyway.
In last night’s New South Wales National Sprint Championship the wayward Foxhill Bella didn’t just do the punters cash cold, she completely stuffed the race and gave it to Did I Entertain on a plate.
Yes she copped some interference from behind just prior, but that did not excuse the brain fade that occurred immediately after, where she lost all interest in the lure and decided Zambola Bale’s left ear was an easier target.

Hopefully weâ€™ll see some good

Welcome toâ€™s for Saturday 15th August 2009 with tonight from The Meadows (Victoria), Wentworth Park (New South Wales), and Cannington (West Australia).
Another nice small profit last night from just the 5finding 3 winners and a second, the best of those the maiden final winner at Richmond who paid over $2.60 at and $2.80 at . Importantly though we deliberately did not include Silent Guardian at Geelong in our selections as we saw him a risk, and punters money went to the wall there with him getting beaten as a long odds on favourite. Sometimes its as much about what we don’t say, as what we do.
Good night of racing heading our way tonight with heats of the Victorian National Sprint Championship at The Meadows and both heats series of the New South Wales National Distance Championship and New South Wales National Sprint Championship at Wentworth Park.

Welcome toâ€™s free for Wednesday 5th July 2009 with tonight from Bendigo (Victoria), Warrnambool (Victoria), Bulli (New South Wales), Ipswich (Queensland) and Cannington (West Australia).
Firstly we want to take the chace to make all our loyal followers aware that, no we didn;t forget to bring you Australia’s best free greyhound racing tips the last two nights; we have been working hard migrate Australia’s best greyhound sales website away from on to its new independant home at http://www.greyhoundsales.com.au.
The change was warranted as Australian Racing Greyhound Auctions had become so successful that it needed to be on its own domain. It also gave us the opportunity to completely reinvent the website and implement some changes that our users had requested.

For the seventh straight month, the now retired El Galo has again claimed the top of the AGRA GroupRankings to the end of July 2009; but all the talk will be of the effect the rankings will have on the upcoming National Championships, especially the National Distance Championships as an unproven stayer looks likely to gain a national final berth through the rankings.
For the first time the Australian Greyhound Rankings, take on extra meaning this month, now that changes to the National Sprint and Distance Championships format come in to effect.
The new changes that effect both the National Sprint and Distance Championships Finals, will see only one runner each qualify from New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, West Australia and Queensland for their respective finals. The home state will retain the right to start two runners in the final and the eighth spot will be filled by the highest ranked greyhound in the Australian greyhound rankings who contested the state heats but failed to qualify through to the national final from their state.

AGRAâ€™s Greyhound of the Month for July 2009 is Victorian sprint warrior Trew Millions. The aging star broke through to win his first group race final in the Group 1 Winter Carnival Cup at Albion Park on July 23.
After 13 tries and three runners up in Group ones he finally scored a well disserved feature final win. It was certainly a delight for the owner-training partnership team of Dennis Trewin and Tina Womann. The Winter Carnival Cup has been a lucky race for them, they have won it on three of the last six occasions.
After a second to High Earner in a heat of the Gold Coast Cup, Trew Millions had no luck in the final, finishing unplaced behind Velocette. However he came out on July 16 and again made a group one final with an impressive heat win in the Winter Cup defeating Dyna Forte in 30.05 after leading all the way.
