20220117 – Cannington Monday

FUNDAMENTALIST (Orson Allen- Fundamental) kicked up underneath Infamous Angel to hold the lead and then hold off the wide running Voodoo Dolly to record a neck Maiden win in 16.46. The Rod Noden trained bitch had been placed at 2 of her past 3 runs before her victory.

HONEY BEE (Fernando Bale- Winsome April) showed early speed and although getting tired near the line was able to hold on for her Maiden victory. The Tony Scott trained bitch defeated Molfetta Belle by a half length in 16.53.

AWESOME EXPRESS (Orson Allen- Fundamental) took the short cut along the rails while It Is Momentum wobbled wide around the corner and in doing so possibly the race. The win gave trainer Rod Noden an early winning double scoring by a head in 16.30.

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.
