“Dusty Mac turns back the clock for McLennan”

Former top grade chaser Dusty Mac wound back the clock tonight when he thrashed his opponents in the Maiolo Constructions Mixed 5/6 over 405m.

He announced himself as a highly promising youngster back in April 2018 when he led throughout over 405m in a scintillating time of 22.54.

He followed up with some sub thirty second runs at Cannington including a second to champion sprinter West On Augie when beaten by just half a length.

However the son of Dyna Double One lost all form from March of last year and only managed one minor placing from 22 starts and that was a third at Northam.

Tonight he drew awkwardly in box six but after the $1.38 favourite Shinboner Glory missed the kick by ten lengths he was able to drive to the front and set the pace.

His opponents simply couldn’t go with him and he won by an ever-expanding nine lengths over Yanderra Jimmy and Zipping Simon.

His time of 22.89 was also terrific given he hadn’t won in such a long time and the fact that he is four years and five months old which puts him well in to the veteran category.

He was now won thirteen races for Kylie McLennan who also prepared the mother Roxy Mac who was a winner of eighteen races herself.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 2 SPRAY AND WIPE : Began like a rocket and gave cheek against some classy customers.

Race 5 Number 3 HARPER’S HERO : Made up many lengths on a very handy chaser in Canya Go Wild.

“Nitro Mini wins for Keith Batty”

Speedy sprinter Nitro Mini took out tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Grade 6 from box four, defeating Transpire and Dilston Devise in a time of 23.24.

The 25kg black daughter of Barcia Bale pinged to the front before being overtaken in the middle stages by Transpire.

Turning for home Nitro Mini began to lift and with better stamina regained the lead and scored by a length.

She has now won 5 of 29 and is trained by Keith Batty who has always had plenty of success despite only ever having a small team in work.

Notable greyhounds he has prepared are speedster Cool Hawk, Sansa Monelli, Bruce Hawk Down and Yilgarn Arkie.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 7 KELLY’S ENTITY : Won impressively from a wide draw in 22.99.

Race 4 Number 3 MYSTERY GUESS : Isn’t slowing down despite approaching four years of age, another strong showing.

“Oriental Owen wins after six weeks off”

Super short-courser Oriental Owen cashed in on box eight in tonight’s MPSanitize Free For All over 302m.

The wide tracker drew perfectly and coming in had won 10 of 17 at Mandurah and an astonishing 40 of 80 overall.

Newcomer Bundi Banner was well supported from box one having won 11 of 20 in NSW along with last week’s FFA winner One Last Hurrah in box two.

But Oriental Owen proved too good, scoring by half a length over One Last Hurrah and three lengths away third was Bundi Banner.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 8 WINLOCK ORIGIN : Didn’t jump but recovered with brilliance to score running away in 22.92.

Race 6 Number 5 SUNSET INFERNO : Caught the eye with a fast finishing second behind kennel-mate Aurora Maya.

“Undercover Boss whizzes around rivals to win maiden”

Wearing the pink vest suited the Victoria Cook trained Undercover Boss when she zoomed around the outside of her opposition to win tonight’s TABtouch Park maiden over 302m.

The daughter of Knocka Norris was placed at her debut run over 275m at Cannington before winning tonight in a solid time of 17.46.

She led throughout and defeated race favourite Spolly’s Angel by two lengths and another four lengths away third was Lil Angel.

Undercover Boss is owned by Nat Crook and is a full sister to brilliant sprinters Aeroplane Eric, Einsteinium and Brace And Bits.

Whilst she doesn’t have the top-shelf ability of those mentioned, tonight’s sectionals suggest she will win plenty of races over short distances.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 9 TITANIUM SPRINGS : Relished box one and battled on gamely to be a runner up in good time.

Race 5 Number 2 WHERE’S THE GIRL : This was a tenacious win first up in WA for Ben MacLean.

“Enzo Crudeli Quinellas first race”

Nambeelup trainer Enzo Crudeli produced first and second in tonight’s opening event, the TABtouch Park Maiden over 302m.

The pair are pups from the August 2018 whelping of Demon Bale and Whispering Ling.
