Dogs to follow – Big Energy, Canya Exceed and Red Medusa

Form expert Dale Code has picked out a selection of greyhounds to follow from around Victoria. You may even want to add them to your Blackbook account.

Breeding: Dec ’20 Aussie Infrared x Amo Bailar
Trainer: Jackie Greenough (Pearcedale)
Record: 10 starts 5-2-0

Dale says:
Big Energy is a potential superstar of the sport who made a big statement with an exhibition of sustained speed in breaking the magical 29-second barrier (28.93 seconds) at Sandown Park last start.

He posted an elite 5.04-second first sectional in that win, which highlights he can also match it with the best early.

If Big Energy can stay fit and healthy, his rise to the top should be a rapid one.

Best traits: Sustained speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 525 metres

Breeding: Apr ’21 Barcia Bale x Optical
Trainer: Emily Azzopardi (Rowsley)
Record: 8 starts 4-1-1

Dale says: I predicted Kelsey Bale to be one of the best sprinters in the state after just four starts and although I’m not suggesting Canya Exceed can reach the lofty heights of Kelsey Bale, I see a lot of similarities between the two.

I am confident that if he remains injury free, Canya Exceed can develop into an elite sprinter in his own right.

Another win is just around the corner particularly if he draws an inside box.

Best traits: Tenacious chaser, keen railer, serious turn of foot
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 500 metres

Breeding: Apr ’21 Fernando Bale x Mombasa
Trainer: Donna Dean (Nyora)
Record: 4 starts 0-0-2

Dale says: Red Medusa is still a maiden after four starts with just two minor placings, but I am super keen that she will break her maiden status very soon particularly if she can draw an inside box.

Armed with smart early speed and getting stronger with more racing, Red Medusa can turn into a more than handy sprinter.

Best traits: Early speed
Ideal draw: Box 1
Ideal distance: 450 metres
