“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.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
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.
