Welcome along to this week’s edition of the North East Weekly Wrap. We had three meetings for the week, at Bendigo, Healesville and Shepparton.
Bendigo began the week last Friday (Sep 25) and we saw some exciting racing, but the highlight win was that of Rowdy Ronda. Named after the UFCs unbeatable female champion Ronda Rousey, this girl landed her own knockout blow by destroying a smart field in brilliant fashion. She bounded to the lead early and it was all over from there as she romped home by 6.5L in the fastest time of the day. It was her 9th win at start 28, and if she keeps repeating that there will be many more wins coming her way as well. She was devastating!! Here she is winning from Box 5…
The Warrnambool Classic winner of earlier this year. Nunya Tron also laid claims to run of the day as he scored his own brilliant win. All this guy needs is clear running and he got that on Friday as he powered clear winning by a space in 27.90. Simon Barker has him back to his best and he will be worth following now he is back in form.
On to Sunday’s meeting at Healesville and the highlight was the performance of As Sweet As, who maintained her perfect record of four from four when she won the Restricted Win Final. She didn’t have it all her own way but she kicked clear late to win easily in the end. She is a dog going places and will be winning better races than Sunday’s event. Trainer Colin Dalton will be having some fun with her for sure. Here is her win…
Trainer Pip Triaca followed up on her double of last weekend with another double with the same two greyhounds, Legend and Kennys Millions, whilst Brenda Kinder shared training honours with her as she scored a double of her own with Coota’s Cazaly and Mary’s Guess.
Joe Borg produced a smart one Monday Night at Shepparton which was the pick of the night there. Lee Brilliance was having only his seventh start, but gee he showed he is pretty good with an awesome win. Firing straight to the lead, he kept running to win in the lightning time of 25.17. He has run good races behind some smart youngsters before, so in the right grade he will keep winning. Catch Fire was having his second start in the Maiden Vic Bred Final and showed he has been possessed with the same ability of his littermate, the unbeaten Cutting Edge, by scoring a flying win. He pinged straight on the lure and romped home for Phillip Clark. He will be winning again soon.
That wraps up greyhound racing in the North East for the past week. Hope you found a winner or two. Until next week – Good Luck and Good Punting.
