Nine finals of the Ready 2 Race series will be held on Saturday at Bendigo with the auction to follow, and Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association Club Manager Troy Harley is still excited about the depth displayed in the series so far.
In a previous article, which can be found HERE, Harley stated that although there are no absolute standouts in the heats, the depth is stronger than ever and here are his statistics to explain why.
Dogs to break 24.50 seconds over the 425 metre distance at Bendigo:
2016: 36/156 or 23% of heat runners
2017: 34/98 or 34% of heat runners
2018: 31/56 or 56% of heat runners
Dogs not to break 25.00 seconds over the 425 metre distance at Bendigo:
2016: 54/156 or 34% of heat runners
2017: 28/98 or 28% of heat runners
2018: 10/55 or 18% of heat runners
