Ronan Izmir (below) won the battle with Delfina Bale at Ballarat last night after five scratchings and vacant box made the mixed grade event a two-act affair.
A dual country cups winner, Ronan Izmir won by almost five lengths in 25.12sec, some two and a half lengths shy of his 24.96sec track record.
Ronan Izmir is expected to tackle next month’s Traralgon Cup, where he stands to win a $50,000 bonus if successful.
The bonus, introduced by GRV’s board in 2009, is offered to the first greyhound to win three Victorian country cups in a calendar year.
Only one greyhound, El Grand Senor in 2009, has claimed the bonus so far.
