Longwood kicks off the coursing season on Sunday with 16 events in their Catch onto Coursing meeting.
Super Suzie Que and her trainer Mark Campbell are one of the 63 greyhound-trainer combinations who will attend the meeting aimed at introducing greyhounds to the coursing system.
Mark Campbell, a hobby trainer from Huntly, works as a Building Supervisor whilst caring for Super Suzie Que.
“Having a greyhound at home helps keep me moving,” Campbell said.
The daughter of Dyna Villa and Uno Suzie has had seven starts for three third placings and will try coursing for the first time on Sunday.
“I have taken greyhounds coursing before over the years and I think it is a great way to build a greyhound’s confidence.”
At just 26 kilo’s in size, Super Suzie Que has seen Healesville, Bendigo and Shepparton in her seven start career.
“Coursing also gives greyhounds more variety, it is a great tool to use.”
“Because coursing is up a straight track, it allows the greyhounds to really stretching their muscle out which I think is a huge positive for them.”
“The dogs just love coursing too, you can really tell.”
Super Suzie Que lines up in the Pia Triaca and LDS Painting sponsored Bitch Puppy event on Sunday against Twilight Connie.
ID cards are to be presented at 9am on Sunday morning at Longwood, with the first course set to get underway at 9.30am.
