Boasting two Group finals, a record Big6 pool for greyhound racing and the likelihood of Australia’s all-time prize money record being toppled, this Saturday night promises to be a memorable one at The Meadows.
The $145,000 Group 1 Hudson Pacific Maturity Classic (525m) is the main event, and with the classiest greyhound in the race, Hooksy, drawn wide in Box 7, there are differing opinions about his chances of claiming his first Group 1.
While GRV’s form expert, The Watchdog, suggests the $2.70 TAB favourite will win, GRVextra’s Simone Fisher and James Van de Maat believe the draw will get the better of him.
Meanwhile, Xylia Allen is a raging $1.25 favourite in the $58,000 Group 2 AWM Distance Championship, and if successful she will overtake Miata ($715,000) as Australian greyhound racing’s highest ever prize money earner.
