Lakeview Walter scratched from TAB Phoenix

Second reserve Lakeview Walter has been scratched from Saturday night’s $1.145 million TAB Phoenix at The Meadows after succumbing to a ligament injury on Monday.

The Gippsland superstar is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks, leaving Lala Kiwi as the only available reserve in the inaugural Phoenix.

With the box draw for the TAB Phoenix race being conducted (and therefore finalised) last Sunday, conditions did not allow for another greyhound to fill the second reserve position in place of Lakeview Walter.

The TAB Phoenix reserves were to face off in a Match Race as part of proceedings at The Meadows this Saturday night, however with connections withdrawing Lakeview Walter’s nomination prior to this morning’s close of nominations deadline, that wasn’t an option.

Lala Kiwi is now set to take on Music Event in the $15,000 Match Race, which is Race 3 on the card.
