“Zipping Dan explodes to a comprehensive victory for Pete Brown”

Former NSW chaser Zipping Dan came into tonight having managed just two minor placings from eight career starts. He drew favourably in box two for Southern River based trainer Pete Brown and as the field entered the back straight he was in fourth position. The 29kg black dog zoomed to the lead at half way before streaking clear in the home straight to win by a whopping seven lengths. Shades Of Kuna battled on well for second after leading early and West On Smoky was another length away in third. Zipping Dan is sired by Ritza Lenny and is out of Tricky Rose who has mothered an amazing 38 greyhounds who have gone on to win at least a maiden. The best of them are Zipping Irwin (25 wins), Zipping Dodge (18 wins), Zipping Scorcher (17 wins) and Zipping Heat (16 wins).

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 8 TOKEN MONELLI : Showed a big turn of speed down the back straight to fly into second position.

Race 5 Number 4 STYLISH IN BLACK : Improved to win her maiden in strong fashion.
