“Max Spartan leads all the way for Gary Nelson”

Improving greyhound Max Spartan began brilliantly to find the lead and win tonight’s A1 Salvage and Hardware Country 5/6 over 488m. The son of Superior Panama started a clear second favourite behind Jett Khan who was sent out at $1.16 fixed odds from box one. Max Spartan led into the back straight over Gladiator Fun and Jett Khan settled in third position. Jett Khan then checked off the heels of Gladiator Fun and dropped back through the field. This allowed Max Spartan to glide home an easy winner by four lengths. Gladiator Fun held on for second ahead of the fast finishing Pumping Gas. Max Spartan is raced by Gary Nelson and Jackie Wilson and has now won 6 of 28 career starts.
