Prepare yourself for an Easter Monday feast of top class greyhound racing as the 2021 Group 2 Bottle-O Ballarat Cup Heats (450m) get underway from 4.07pm.
While the appearance of excitement machines like Shima Shine, Ferdinand Boy and Equalizer is sure to have greyhound fans pinned to the live action on The Watchdog app, a young tyro named Silver Lake is the greyhound creating the most buzz heading into the series.
In February, at just his sixth start, Silver Lake broke Ballarat’s 450m track record in 24.686sec, and after running 2nd in a Semi-Final of the Launching Pad at Sandown Park last start trainer Graham James will have him primed for a big showing.
The six heat winners and two fastest 2nd placegetters will qualify for Friday night’s $67,000 Final.
WATCH: Silver Lake (4) lowers the 450m track record at Ballarat in February.
