Two greyhounds fetched phenomenal purchase prices as almost $300,000 was invested at today’s Ready 2 Race Greyhound Sales at Bendigo.
Who Cry Now and Circumstance ran one-two in the opening final before being sold for $31,000 and $30,000 respectively, double the next highest purchase.
After Monday’s fastest heat winner He’s An Ace skipped away to a big lead in the contest, Who Cry Now soon hit the lead before Circumstance rattled home into second place to almost pinch the win.
He’s An Ace was the third highest purchase at $15,000.
