ROCKSTAR PATRIOT (Fernando Bale- Glory Of Love) caused a major boil over in the Gr 1 final of the Sky Racing Galaxy after defeating Tornado Tears by 2 lengths in 42.00. The Paul Stuart trained dog was purchased by James Jeffries and Gemma Jovanovic for this race, however gave themselves little chance when Australia’s best stayer Tornado Tears was entered for the series. When Batman was squeezed at the start the race changed complexion and Rockstar Patriot raced to glory. The win was Stuart’s 3rd win in the race after winning it twice with the great Miata.

20190322 – Mandurah Friday – Dawesville Cup

“Dance Away breaks through for overdue victory”

Trained out of North Yunderup by Peter Sutherland Dance Away improved sharply tonight to win over the 405m distance. The 25kg white and black daughter of Cosmic Rumble showed a lot of ability early in her career and won 9 of her first 30 career starts. However since running third early last August she failed to finish closer than sixth at 9 subsequent runs when slowly away. Tonight she drew box one and after a fast getaway led throughout in a smart 23.05 over the Chris Halse trained Jerky Boy and the Neville Smith prepared Patchy Kat. Punters didn’t see the improved performance coming and despite drawing the favourable box one was sent out at odds of $26.10 with the WA TAB. Sutherland has trained many Mandurah specialists in the past like Miss Collash, Coolabar Babe, Romulus, Fawn Arkie and Stack The Doe. The feature race was won by Westdale Bandit (pictured) for Andrew McLaren who recorded a sizzling 27.57 over 490m to claim the time honoured Dawesville Cup.


Race 5 Number 4 SPITTING VENOM : Ran on gamely to be the runner up in the Dawesville Cup.

Race 6 Number 5 BONTEM DELLY : Caught the eye to finish just behind the placegetters and will drop in grade next start.

20190309 – Cannington Saturday

Australia’s best stayer Tornado Tears lowered the track record of Petunia Monelli (34.49) when on a wet track he went 34.48 at his first look at the Cannington track. The superstar is being aimed at the Gr 1 Sky Racing Galaxy with the heats next week. Equilibrium also trialed over the 600 metres and clocked 35.08. While Hasten Slowly clocked 29.89 over the 520 metres.

DYNA PATTY (Fernando Bale- Unix Bale) destroyed her rivals at her first look at the Cannington track in the Prelude of the Sky Racing Perth Cup. The Andrea Dailly trained star won the Australian Cup at her previous start. The dark brindle bitch held out West On Augie on the first corner and then raced clear winning by 6 lengths in 29.56. The win also took her stake earnings past $500,000.

MOMENT TO JIVE (Mogambo- Sharon Monelli) led throughout in the Prelude of the Sky Racing Galaxy before scoring by 4 lengths over West On Hawkeye in 42.09. The Sarah Appleton trained bitch will be WA’s leading chance of  trying to match Australian staying star Tornando Tears in the Galaxy series with the heats next Saturday night.

20190223 – Cannington Saturday

JADE’S BLADE (Kinloch Brae- Bluey’s Fate) crossed the field from her outside draw and then went on to score a 5 length win in the Listed Greyhounds WA Puppy Classic final. The Joe Dailly trained bitch had won 5 times from 14 starts and amassed $21,000 in stakes prior to her victory in a PB 29.96. The $20,000 first prize almost doubled her earnings and she also gains from being WA bred and hence gets bonuses.

REIDY’S RUNNER (Dyna Double One- Buxton Miss) sat in second place from the start and pressured the leader and race favourite Moment To Jive until they entered the back straight. At this point, the Christine Bennett trained dog, dropped off his rivals and went on to win by 4 lengths in 42.11. The black dog weighed in lighter at kenneling and this certainly looks to have the talented stayer primed for the upcoming Gr 1 Sky Racing Galaxy series in March.

DYNA DEAN (Kiowa Mon Manny- Prue Bale) missed the trouble as the runners entered the back straight and Leisel Monelli was dragged down from behind by Campini and fell. The Enzo Crudeli trained dog has been mixing his distances since coming across from Victoria and once finding the top tonight was able to race clear to win by 4 lengths in 30.12.

HECTON BALE (Fernando Bale- Searle Bale) turned his form around to score a 2 1/4 length win over Slingshot Gypsy in 29.79.
