He’s finally home!
Greyhound racing’s newest pin-up boy Catch The Thief landed back in Victoria today following a sensational stint in Perth of five consecutive wins including two feature finals – the G2 WA Derby and Winter Cup.
Trainer Matt Clark and partner Bianca could barely contain their excitement when greeting their superstar at Melbourne Airport, having had to watch from the other side of the country as Catch The Thief took all before him at Cannington.
His string of Perth victories included a stunning 29.32sec gallop in the Derby Final, which was just one length off Cannington’s 520m track record.
