“Em Morney racks up 24th career victory”

Chasing stalwart Em Morney chalked up win number 24 tonight when he led throughout in the Essential Refrigeration Services Grade 4 over 405m. The son of Barcia Bale turned four years old this month which makes him eligible for masters graded racing in the future. He pinged from the traps to find an uncontested lead and surged away to beat favourite New Echo by three lengths in 22.87. Bontem Delly finished third just ahead of the fast finishing No Added Sugar. Trained out of Nambeelup by Linda Smithson Em Morney has now started 93 times for 24 wins, 33 minor placings and more than $50,000 in stake earnings. Linda and Ray Smithson have prepared many top class greyhounds over the years like Bold Intention, Silver Pierre, Enfield Mask, Underclass Hero, Boom Gaspar and Rockstar Max.


Race 2 Number 1 OPTICAL : Extended her unbeaten run to three with an all the way 405m win in 22.67.

Race 4 Number 4 GRAND LARCENY : Had to overcome a poor getaway but did a great job to charge home and snatch second.

“Westdale Bandit sizzles around in 27.48 for McLaren”

Promising youngster Westdale Bandit produced a stunning performance in tonight’s Quaddie Time Grade 5 over 490m. From box one the son of Kinloch Brae surged through to lead before blasting clear to score by seven lengths in a swift 27.48. The 34kg brindle dog turned two last month and has now won 5 of his 10 career starts, all of which have been at the Mandurah track. The David Hobby trained Sunset Echo soldiered on well for second and another three lengths away third was the Greg Martin trained Running On Gas. Westdale Bandit looks set for City Class victories in the future given the way he powered to the line over the 490m distance.


Race 1 Number 1 SUKHAVATI : Improved sharply from box one over 302m, leading throughout in 17.40.

Race 3 Number 8 JET FLYER : Had to overcome box 8 and after a moderate getaway stormed home to be beaten a nose by Incredible Bev.

“Rosie Cristalle cashes in on interference-free run to win her maiden”

Patience paid off this evening for Nambeelup trainer Phil Worthington when pint-sized bitch Rosie Cristalle scored over 405m. The 25kg daughter of Kinloch Brae had struck severe trouble at her last four starts at the Mandurah track resulting in just one minor placing. Tonight from box one she drove through to be third at the first turn before over-powering the likes of Blue Diablo and Zipping Ginger in the home straight. The Glen Price trained Zipping Ginger finished second ahead of Blue Diablo who had led for most of the journey. Rosie Cristalle had only managed three minor placings from her first eleven career starts but with tonight’s confidence boost is sure to handle the rise to graded company. Worthington has recently been winning plenty of races with star 302m Thursday night performer Kaos Be Cool. In the past he has put the polish on handy types Sin City Girl, Beaufort Bomber, Calahan Rocks, Dumb Bullett, Dibley, Magic Mundy and Silly Sonia.


Race 1 Number 2 HIGH DISTORTION : Broke his maiden status impressively over 405m for Eric Campana.

Race 3 Number 8 WESTDALE ANNE : Dominated a handy field from box 8, winning in a flying 22.72.

“Em Morney leads throughout for 23rd career victory”

Consistent short-courser Em Morney has been a great money-spinner throughout her 90 start career. Tonight she led throughout against quality opposition to earn another $2,150 cheque to take her lifetime earnings to $46,672. It’s a huge effort for a greyhound who has never won over a distance further than 405m. She now has 23 wins and 31 minor placings to her credit with 6 wins at Northam, 7 at Mandurah and 10 at Cannington. Tonight she sped out of the red box to lead and was able to see off fellow veteran Constant Rama by just over a length. Em Morney turns four years old on February 25 and will be a strong force from that date on when she becomes eligible for Masters racing.


Race 1 Number 2 WINLOCK ORIGIN : Led throughout from box two and won by a whopping 9.25 lengths in 22.92.

Race 4 Number 4 JERKY BOY : Worked home stylishly for second.
