CRUISER COIN (Spring Gun- Gypsy Lee Coin) spoilt the party for the Irish owners of Quick Jagger on St Patricks day with a nose victory over the odds on favourite. The Bob Terrington trained dog settled in fourth place early and with Quick Jagger unable to find the lead, he was able to quickly join him coming to the home corner. The two chasers then did battle all the way down the home straight with the black dog getting his nose in front right on the line.
WEST ON AUGIE (Fernando Bale- Te Amo) demolished his rivals in the first heat of the Puppy Classic with an all the way victory scoring by 10 lengths in a PB 29.40. The Chris Halse trained dog was pressurised for the first half of the race by Pinny Mack before he dropped into another gear on the home corner. Halse trained Rammifications to win the Puppy Classic in 2016 before she went on to win the WA Greyhound of the year.
MANDJOOGOORDAP (Collision- Ritza Night) had to overcome trouble soon after the start and then on the first corner before shooting away to win the second heat of the Puppy Classic. The Paul Stuart trained bitch showed some courage as she won by 11 lengths over Ookinaki Flyer in 29.87. Stuart won the Puppy Classic in 2013 with Dyna Nalin before he went on to win the Gr 1 Perth Cup and WA Greyhound of the year.
POPPY MONELLI (Fabregas- Jackie Bale) railed beautifully as she led throughout in the final heat of the Puppy Classic. The David Hobby trained bitch started a short priced favourite and defeated kennel mate Corona Monelli by 1 3/4 lengths in 29.75. Hobby won the classic in 1998 with All The Grooves and then in 2002 with Mario Monelli.
