HEALESVILLE CUP RAID

New South Wales sprinter claims the world’s richest race up the straight

Marbro Man [right] is the toast of New South Wales tonight after winning the world’s richest straight race, the Group 2 Healesville Cup [350m].

It’s rare for an interstate-trained greyhound to snare a Victorian group race in this period of Big V dominance, in particular a country cup.

However, the reward for the Simon Brown trained speedster was a cool $40,000 and he took his career record to 20 wins from just 34 starts.

Marbro Man [$8.70] defeated Healesville track record holder I’m A Fencer [$8.40] by half a length, with Marmion [$14.70] third in the time of 19.27sec.

    
Cup winners: Marbro Man and trainer Simon Brown.
