Young Victorian star Catch The Thief has continued his love affair with Cannington, notching his fourth straight win at the track last night.
Lining up in a talent-laden heat of the Fuller Fitness Winter Cup which included Cannington track record holder Campini, Catch The Thief made it look easy, careering away to a 7.5 length win in 29.56sec, justifying his $1.50 favourtism.
Catch The Thief took out the G2 WA Derby Final at his previous start in a low-flying 29.32sec, just one length off the track record.
Trained in the Gippsland town of Briagalong by former Healesville Greyhound Association President Matthew Clark, Catch The Thief is currently in the care of WA’s Krystal and Steve Shinners.
The 25-month-old son of Aussie Infrared and Dundee Alley has now won his past six races, and 12 from 19 overall.
Pawnote: One other Winter Cup heat was run last night, taken by local star Tommy Shelby, a winner of 12 from 15, in 30.03sec. This Saturday’s Group Listed final carries prize money of $30,000 including $19,950 to the winner.
