Popular greyhounds Kiss Me Ketut and Top Innings won heats of the Group 2 Warrnambool Classic on Wednesday, but a lesser-known greyhound called Trail Blazing was arguably the standout performer on the night.
In just his 12th start the 26 month old Tina Womann-trained greyhound notched his fifth win in the best of night time of 25.14sec, which caught the attention of punters.
After 10 heats were run on Tuesday night which included a track record run by Phenomenal in 24.82sec, a further five heats were conducted last night.
The first two placegetters in each heat as well as the two fastest thirds qualify for Wednesday night’s Warrnambool Classic semi-finals, with the$75,000 to-the-winner final to be run on 30 April in conjunction with the Group 2 Warrnambool Cup.
Group 1 Brisbane Cup winner and celebrity greyhound Kiss Me Ketut (David Burnett) won his three-dog heat in 25.21sec following a number of scratchings, while the Ricky Ponting-owned Top Innings (Jeff Britton) won in 25.37sec.
Other heat winners last night were Carbon Neutral (Ray Henness) in 25.47sec and Southwood Lexie (Chris Stanton) in 25.41
