Western Wrap: Molly’s Massive Run at Massive Odds

GREYHOUND enthusiasts around the country have been treated to yet another exciting week of racing from the west of the state, with a number of heats and finals making up fields.

Kicking off at Horsham last Tuesday (June 30), track specialist Soda Man was victorious in the feature of the evening. Using his mid-race speed to take the lead early on, he overcame a late challenge from Miss Harmony to salute in a 27.06sec dash over the 480 metres.

But kennelmate Jaycee stole the honours as quickest of the evening, leading all the way in an emphatic 26.96sec triumph two races later (Replay).

The handicapped 570 metre contest at Horsham is slowly becoming one of the track’s feature attractions – and Starbright Tara showed impressive mid-staying skills to hold off late challenges from Mi Diablo and Charley Arabali to score. All three placegetters were paying over $10.00 for the win.

DISTANCE racing headed the feature racing at Ballarat on July 1, with Joy McDowell’s Molly Michelle overcoming 35/1 odds to put on a massive come-from-behind win (Replay).

Brooke Ennis’ Vapour Lee was the fastest of the day over the 450 metres, nudging out kennelmate Repayments for the title of fastest run when scoring in 25.19.

Spectators didn’t have to wait long to see the quickest victory of the evening over the 390 metres, with Maisy Mac stunning competitors with a flying 22.12sec triumph in race one.

WARRNAMBOOL was home to a number of impressive victories on Thursday (July 2) – the most impressive of which coming from Raymond Brewer’s Belena Prince – after the promising chaser scored the tenth win of his career in a flying 22.16sec.

Cudgee Destroyer continued his impressive form over the 450 metres at Warrnambool, breaking through to record his second victory in five starts – after three second placings.

But Dyna Ping took the title as fastest greyhound of the evening, scoring emphatically in 25.50sec over the 450 metres.

SHARED Bonus lit up Geelong on Friday evening (July 3), clocking a blistering 25.68sec best of the night over the 460 metres. With second place running in at 25.92sec, it’s clear to see how dominant he was.

Just A Taste overcame steely competition to grind out a big victory over the short course of 400 metres. Not only was it the quickest of the evening, but it marked a return on consistent form of late.

Rodney Clark’s Reckless Brown took out quickest of the evening over the 520 metres, scoring by two and three quarter lengths in a blistering 29.89sec.
