“Sheed’s Goal breaks maiden status for the On The Far Syndicate”
Sheed’s Goal entered tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Maiden having being placed in 10 of his 23 career starts. Recent minor placings behind quality youngsters like Mocha Bean, Any Tips Jim, Porsche Monelli and Sunset Harlow suggested he would surely break through soon and he was well supported into a $2.30 favourite. From box two he left cleanly and matched strides with the speedy Bolo for the first 300m. Turning for home Sheed’s Goal shook off Bolo but litter siblings Sketchy Kirks and Sketchy Solo were both making ground from midfield. Sheed’s Goal held on to score by just over a length in 23.12, defeating the strong finishing Sketchy Kirks who beat Bolo for second by half a length. Sketchy Solo finished close up in fourth position and both ‘Sketchy’ greyhounds will appreciate the potential rise to 490m. The Dennis Kerr managed On The Far Syndicate race their greyhounds with Nambeelup trainer Michael Johnston and with his reliable box manners and early zip Sheed’s Goal looks set for a very bright future.

Race 4 Number 3 COOL TALENT : Displayed plenty of zip and will be winning over 405m very soon.
Race 5 Number 6 IT’S THE HORSE : Didn’t have much luck and after an early squeeze did well to run on strongly at the finish for fifth.

“One Last Hurrah makes it 2 from 2 at Mandurah”
Highly talented sprinter One Last Hurrah cruised to an easy win in tonight’s opening event, the Free Entry TABtouch Park Novice over 302m. The daughter of Glen Gallon began her career in South Australia where she would usually lead over 395m (Murray Bridge) and 400m (Gawler) before folding up late and failing to hang on. She won her maiden over 302m earlier this month in 17.36 when she led throughout from box eight. This evening she mirrored that performance, mustering to the front from box seven before posting a smart 17.31. Five lengths away second was Just A Dreamer and a head away in third position was Joe Gundi. The decrease in metreage has made a large difference to her racing career and it’s hard to see her not ending up in Country FFA company.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Race 3 Number 3 ZIPPING FLYNN : Hit the line hard and although unplaced was an eye-catching performance.
Race 4 Number 4 SMURF : Dug deep in the wet conditions to win in 17.30.

“Prime Time wins on debut for Price”
Nambeelup trainer Glen Price has trained a lot of handy greyhounds in the past like Karon’s Boy, Stinky Pete, Elite Angus, Party Hunter, Vicky’s Boy and King Humpty. Tonight he unveiled a first starter part owned by his father Rod who manages the Prime Racing Syndicate. Prime Time, a son of Moreira born in December of 2017 jumped nicely from box one in wet conditions to hold out race favourite Little Kicks at the first turn. The 28kg black dog capitalised on his inside box advantage and at half way dashed a few lengths in front. Little Kicks was unable to challenge and Prime Time helped himself to a comfortable debut win in 23.34. The time is better than it looks given the stormy conditions and the stiff headwind the chasers faced in the back straight. Prime Time is out of Smash The Clock who was lightly raced in Victoria, winning 5 of 24 career starts for Devon Meadows trainer Jihad Talgi.
