20160929 – Mandurah Thursday

“Nickanator goes on with the job”

Keen railing greyhound Nickanator made full use of box one in tonight’s $29 Thursday Buffet Grade 5 over 302m. The daughter of Krackenator was able to hold out her challengers despite beginning only moderately. Having the inside alley allowed her to drive through while her opponents bumped/hampered each other on her outside. Once she found the front she was never going to lose and she went on to score by three lengths in a solid time of 17.36. She also won seven days earlier, defeating Grade 6 opposition in 17.38 from box two. Nickanator is prepared by North Yunderup based trainer Tania Thomas and now has 6 wins and 9 minor placings from her 46 career starts. She is a full sister to Mandurah specialist Activator who after 67 career starts has racked up an amazing 30 wins and 25 minor placings. Activator is also prepared by Thomas and recently took out the time honoured “Dash Final”. Pictured : Tania Thomas
