Melbourne’s Laetisha Scanlan, a newcomer to greyhound racing, won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow last night.
A 24-year-old shooter based in Berwick, Scanlan enjoyed a come from behind win against the odds that has made headlines in print and across the airwaves this morning.
Scanlan, who got into greyhound racing through her dad, has owned a handful of race dogs over the past two years that have been trained by Paul Anderton and Hugh Clarke.
These include Good Morning and Quilty (whom she recently sold) – both of whom are littermates to Anderton’s Melbourne Cup finalist Shifty Sticka – and Big Blue Rooster, who won five races including one at The Meadows.
