North-East Wrap: Triple Dead Heat…Almost!

Hello and welcome along to this week’s edition of the North East Weekly Wrap.

Feature racing went to Healesville last Sunday with the final of the Winter Cup. Favourite for the race was Boo Shan and he didn’t let punters down. Jumping cleanly from Box 7, he won pretty comfortably in the end defeating Eddie Yap, who tried bravely, and He’s Panicken (Replay).

Trained by Daryl Brennan at Ross Creek, which is just out of Ballarat, Boo Shan has now won four of his eight starts with Sunday’s win his biggest to date in his short career. Once he gets older and a little stronger don’t be surprised to see this greyhounds racing in top quality grade.

There were a host of other impressive winners on the program including debutante Snaphook Sticka, who made a really good debut winning easily in good time in the opener. Others to win impressively were Deadly Pace, who overcame difficulties to win in the last stride, and kennelmate to the Winter Cup champ Due Process, who bolted in by eight lengths in very, very quick time. He has now won 2 from 2 and might be very good.

Greyhound action headed to Bendigo last Friday where we had some really good racing and a wonderful staying race where there was almost a triple dead heat between Levi’s Huracan, It’s A Plane and Fabio to Excel. The margins were a nose by a nose. It was a tremendous finish with Levi’s Huracan just getting the verdict (Replay).

Others to follow from the program include Baltic Valhalla. Although he was beat in Race 3 he will be winning soon with the right luck as he has a monster finish on him. Young Henry, in Race 9, in particular if he draws off the track, and Lachlan Bear from Race 10 who went exceptionally well.

On to Monday night and we saw a terrific night of racing held at Shepparton with the highlight being the three semi finals of the GRV Vic Breeders. The first semi saw this rising star in Moreira do his thing. He drew Box 8, had some interference getting over but boy his last half of the race was seriously impressive. He will be some dog and will start a clear favourite in the final (Replay). Over to semi 2 and Unlawful Entry (Replay) was a dominant winner here. He didn’t begin flash but he weaved through and quickly put pay to them. Darren Pattinson has a smart one here and with early luck he is certainly a danger to Moreira in the final. Here is the semi win of Unlawful Entry. The last semi saw Redhot Pursuit score a minor upset win, leading all the way beating Dr Valhalla and Absolute Silence, who walked out and didn’t have much luck either (Replay).

Others to follow from the night include Jordy Shiack in Race 7, who was a minute back after being in bother early but he was an eyecatcher flying home and will be winning shortly. Grand Intention, who was brilliant leading all the way in the dazzling time of 25.10 and Zipping Simmo, who was arguably the win of the night coming from a seemingly hopeless position to win running away. He might be a special stayer! Here is his win (Replay).
