20170812 – Cannington Saturday

MAX PROFIT (Fabregas- Belron Cedar) raced through to the National Sprint final with an all the victory for young West Pinjarra trainer Corey White. With blistering early speed, the black dog crossed the classy all WA bred field, and then held off the late challenge from Mendoza Monelli by a neck in 29.79 with race favourite Found A Diamond a length back in third. WA last won the National Sprint final in 1997 when Prince Of Tigers won in Adelaide. White will now head to Queensland with Max Profit who has won 22 times from 35 career starts and over $100,000 in stakes. Pictured : Max Profit

RAMIFICATIONS (Barcia Bale- Disco Girl) will represent WA in the National Distance final after running down the leader Ashton Monelli in the WA Distance Championship final. The reigning WA Greyhound of the Year and track record holder dug deep over the finals stages to win by 1 3/4 lengths in 42.26. The win in the feature was the first for trainer Chris Halse in his own right after being involved with 7 previous winners with partner and former leading WA trainer Linda Britton. The pair won the National Distance final with Paradise Street back in 1998.

BLACK BOMBSHELL (Barcia Bale- Tearsabout Tears) used his box 1 to hold up and lead throughout for trainer Enzo Crudeli. The black dog has recorded 7 wins from 12 career starts and defeated Tommy The Weapon by 10 lengths in 29.78.

FLYING EAMONN (Collision- Oshkosh Fayola) ran home strongly along the fence to claim the leader Yunderup Dozer right on the line and win by a half head in 30.26. The Joe Dailly trained dog had won the previous week in an easier Grade 4/5 event in 30.12.

SASSY GINGER (Kinloch Brae- Sassy Guess) enjoyed his best box draw for a couple of months and returned to the winners circle with an all the win in 29.89. The Enzo Crudeli trained dog had been very unlucky from his wide draws and was sent out at lucrative each ways odds.

WILL KEEPING (Barcia Bale- Beth Keeping) hunted through from box 1 for new trainer Jamie Marsh and then held off the late lunge of Cosmic Maltese to win by a head in a PB 30.35. Marsh took over the training of the blue dog in June and he has recorded his only two victories at Cannington while in his care.
