20190320 – Greyhound Gold

20190320 – Cannington Wednesday

JUNIPER TWEDO (Fernando Bale- Saving Bundles) was beaten for early speed before pushing through to gain the lead going into the first corner. The Shayne Williams trained youngster, who doesn’t turn two years of age until August, raced away to win by 6 3/4 in her Maiden win in 30.01. The white and black bitch is raced by former leading trainer and Gerry O’Keefe award winner John Carmody and his wife Dianne, with the two enjoying retirement while still having a link to the WA greyhound industry.

WESTDALE ANNE (Kinloch Brae- Bluey’s Fate) recorded her first win at Cannington with an all the way victory scoring by 7 lengths over Hastie Guess in 30.02. The Andrew McLaren trained bitch had been well supported when finding trouble and placed at her past two starts. Once she jumped to the front there was never any doubt as the little 25kg bitch shot away down the back straight.

ZABEEKA (Fernando Bale- Winsome Charlie) gave trainer Shayne Williams an early winning double after holding out dead heaters Wagtail Cumin and Our Sovereign in 30.50. The white and fawn dog had been placed at 5 of his past 6 starts since his last win.
