“Dynamite Road causes upset from pink box”

Red fawn and white dog Dynamite Road appreciated box eight tonight when victorious in the Christmas In July Mixed 5/6 over 490m. The son of Cosmic Rumble began poorly but maintained a wide path and was able to surge around rivals in the middle stages and take the lead. Co-favourites Dusty Gunn and Storm Blazer were in hot pursuit and made up plenty of ground but Dynamite Road held on to win by half a length. He posted a solid time of 28.15 and that was just his second career victory at his 26th start. He was unplaced at his previous 6 runs and justifiably started at the juicy odds of $20.30 with the WA TAB. He is trained by Nambeelup trainer Tim Mullany who had several greyhounds racing in Darwin last Sunday night.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 3 ASHBY BETH : Flooded home to finish second and looks set to win a Grade 6 in the coming weeks.

Race 3 Number 4 RIGATONI : Jumped to the lead at big odds and posted a swift 17.25.
