Western Wrap: Ready 2 Race Greyhound takes Time Honours

BELLS Are Ringin may have only had nine starts to date, but that hasn’t stopped her carving out one of the most promising careers in country Victoria.

Already the recipient of $23,505 in prizemoney accumulated from her five straight victories last month – Bells Are Ringin added another notch to her already decorated belt – taking out the Horsham leg of the of the GRV VBIS (0-6 WINS) Distance Final in 32.77sec.

Shooting to the front from box two, Bells Are Ringin put a commanding lead on the pack – repaying the faith of punters that backed her into $1.40 early on.

To add to the class of Tuesday night, Troy Comensoli’s Kraken Conan recorded one of the most impressive victories of the week, saluting in a brilliant 23.21sec. On top of that, Kraken Conan’s triumph came in 8.25 lengths in front of the second runner.

Sisco Wake (pictured), who has won $39,000 in prize money since being sold for just $8,000 at the 2014 Ready 2 Race Sales, put on a brilliant show to score in the best of the night over the 480 metres in 27.36sec.
