Jezza gives connections a lift
Superstar Traralagon greyhound Jesaulenko gave Terri Morris and her family a much needed lift on Friday night at Sandown in the 2016 TAB Melbourne Cup heats, after Terri’s mother Bev Proctor was taken to hospital.
“Mum has been in hospital sick and she is the brains behind this litter. Cheer up mum!” Terri-Maree said after an impressive win from Jesaulenko.
“He is just a ripper and he doesn’t put in a bad race very often.”
Jesaulenko lead from start to finish in the fifth heat of the $600,000 Melbourne Cup from box one. He held off a late surge from one of Australia’s strongest greyhounds over the 515 metre distance, Blazin’ Bomber.
“Hopefully we have a few more Jesaulenko’s coming through, we did a repeat mating. He is the perfect dog, you couldn’t ask for a better dog.”
Jesaulenko is set to jump from box eight in the 2016 Group One $600,000 Melbourne Cup on Friday night at Sandown Park.
