This Sunday will be the third meeting in the 2019 Gold Rush Carnival and features heats of the ever popular Aussie Infrared Belle of Bendigo and McIvor Road Vet Centre Beau of Bendigo series.
For female and male greyhounds respectively with no more than four race wins the Belle and Beau events are always full of up and coming star sprinters and this year is no exception with four quality heats of each event to be run on Sunday afternoon with racing commencing from 12.34pm.
The second heat of the McIvor Road Vet Centre Beau of Bendigo is of final quality with five in form runners drawn to contest the fourth event, and two of those already showing a liking for the Bendigo track in their brief careers to date.
Premier Rumble for Brooke Ennis, a winner of four from eight thus far clocked 23.76 at Bendigo on December 29 and last start resumed from a spell with a blistering 21.89 Ballarat victory on April 10. Local sprinter Havelock Keith, prepared by Ian Garland, has raced four times at Bendigo for two wins and two placings, one of those placings was on February 23 when he clocked 23.88 finishing a close 2nd in fast time.
Aside from those two runner, Straaljager, a recent 22.48 Geelong winner, Floppy Joe, winner of his past three outings and Just Burning, with a smart 24.84 Sale win to his credit recently all have genuine chances in a very tough race.
The standout runner in the Aussie Infrared Belle of Bendigo series is another local Barinya for Dallas Massina. Drawn in box six in the final race of the day Barinya has won her past three starts including a 23.99 Bendigo win and last start 21.93 Ballarat victory.
