“West On Fever relishes class drop”

It’s not often a greyhound starts in a Provincial FFA and a week later drops to a Country 4/5 but that was the case tonight for the highly talented West On Fever. The son of Fernando Bale was heavily backed into $1.30 from box two and after a moderate jump zoomed to the lead in the middle stages before romping clear to salute by four lengths. The Justin Wood trained Chloe’s The Boss ran a solid second and four lengths away third was Banjo’s Girl. West On Fever has now started 20 times for 8 wins, 9 minor placings and over $19,000 in earnings. He is a half brother to awesome performers West On Hawkeye, Eminent Reality, Art Noveau, Duty Free and West On Archer.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 8 VALCONY WARRIOR : Overcame a moderate start to take the lead mid race and hang on narrowly.

Race 3 Number 9 PADDDY WHACK : Powered home to beat a decent 302m field in 17.30.

“Back Creek Bella breaks losing sequence of 21 for Glen Currie”

Wundowie trainer Glen Currie, fresh off a Group Two victory last Friday took out tonight’s Bring Your Crew Along Novice over 405m. Back Creek Bella, a former Northern NSW based chaser hadn’t won for 21 starts spanning back to her maiden win over 420m at Lismore last April. She began like a bullet and enjoyed an uncontested lead before cruising home by four lengths over Stig Monelli and Greta Flash. Her time of 22.93 was smart and she looks set to win many more races if she can replicate those box manners.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 YILGARN BLINKY : Overcame a moderate jump to win her maiden in 17.47.

Race 5 Number 9 BROOME TIME : Powered home for a close up third and is nearing a win.

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.
