20220114 – Mandurah Friday – Birthday Cup

“Glen Currie wins Birthday Cup with Bones McCoy”

The Birthday Cup is a time honoured race that was first run back in 1979 when Newburn Lad won over the old 530m distance. Some big name winners have been Icy Monaro (1982), Fire Rock (1995), Zalock (2003), Back Tonight (2007 and 2008), Astrophysic (2016) and Miss Bamsy (2018). A rich field was assembled for tonight’s $60,000 Group Two Final and Bones McCoy and Destruction shared favouritism. The pair began beautifully and matched strides into the first turn with Bones McCoy using his inside advantage to hold the lead. The son of Aston Dee Bee motored away from his rivals in the middle stages and whilst Sunset Piper took ground off him late he scored by half a length. The former NSW chaser boasts a nice PB of 29.62 around Wentworth Park and was always going to be hard to beat once he led over 405m. He is prepared by comeback trainer Glen Currie who has been back training greyhounds for a couple of years out of Wundowie, a town in the Darling Range 67km north east of Perth. Currie trained plenty of winners in the 1990s in both NSW and WA and was proud as punch with his Group Two triumph tonight.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 3 NED KEEPING : Led throughout first up in the state and will benefit from the run.

Race 3 Number 5 POPPY PASSION : Landed in front and kept going, winning over 647m by more than a length.

20220113 – Mandurah Thursday

“Cosmic Typhoon snaps a losing sequence of 29”

Talented sprinter Cosmic Typhoon relished box one tonight when he took out the $29 Thursday Buffet Grade 6 over 405m. The son of Fernando Bale was heavily backed into $1.50 fixed odds and didn’t let his backers down. He squeezed through on the inside of his rivals at the first turn before scoring by three lengths in a smart 22.99. Despite not having won recently he boasted a strong form line of finishing 3.50 lengths behind Larkin Monelli, 4.25 lengths behind Turbo Fun and 3.75 lengths behind Mild Marcus. Favourite backers were on to it and the drop to Grade 6 company certainly assisted his chances. He is raced by Anthony Barranca and is now prepared by Ben MacLean who has done a terrific job getting Cosmic Typhoon back into winning form.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 2 GABBY GABBY : Ran on gamely for second in 23.14.

Race 5 Number 7 CHASING JASON : Powered home for a 490m triumph in 27.74.
