Aussie superstar Sweet It Is (pictured) scored her sixth win at Group 1 level on Sunday – this time in New Zealand – where she ran a track record 45.86sec in the Silver Collar Final (779m) at Auckland.
Australian greyhound racing’s highest ever prize money earner, Sweet It Is took her winnings up to $877,000 when claiming an $80,000 first prize.
The Braden Finn-trained greyhound’s visit to New Zealand, coupled with an injury to fellow champion Victorian stayer Space Star, may have presented Lady Toy with her best opportunity yet to win a Group 1 race yet.
However, the Victorian greyhound will have to improve on her heat run when scraping into the final by finishing fourth (Replay).
Trained by Brooke Ennis, Lady Toy has previously contested five Group 1 finals in her career, finishing 2nd on four occasions and fourth in another.
