Western Wrap: Bill stars at Horsham, Brownless at Ballarat

WESTERN Victoria was home to a number of enthralling heats and finals last week, with each of the four tracks hosting a number of exciting races and standout individual performances.

Kicking things off in Mallee last Tuesday, Horsham began proceedings with a handicap over the 570 metres. Neville Vincent’s Six Green Thumbs led all the way, holding off advances from Upset Boy early on to bolt away with the victory, taking out the ninth win of his career from 36 starts.

Bills Back (pictured on right) marked a return to Horsham in style, recording an imposing best of the night over the 410 metres – a 23.13sec dash which showed off his mid-race power to take the lead at the first bend (Replay).

Akando repayed punters faith by scoring in a blistering 27.07sec over the 480, a time quick enough to grant him the best of the night honours. Overcoming a number of quality greyhounds, Akando held his own in the famous home straight – maintaining a two length buffer on Master Tron to score.

John Chircop’s Bigboy Brownless was the quickest of the two, recording a flying 22.18sec triumph over My Regina in the first of the evening – a run just three milliseconds from the best of the night run from Blast Away in race ten of the evening.

Dyna Tiber was the most impressive greyhound of the night over the 450 metres, saluting in the feature race of the evening as well as recording the best of the night time (25.22).
