“Karon’s Boy leads throughout for Price”

Honest sprinter Karon’s Boy scored by the bearest of margins in tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Stake over 405m. The eight greyhounds began evenly before Karon’s Boy out-mustered his rivals to find the lead at the first turn. The Ellenbrook based Elle Driver (box 3) gave pursuit with both Black Herc (box 7) and Daenerys Monelli (box 1) also settling within striking distance. Karon’s Boy looked vulnerable turning for home with all three chasers challenging strongly but the son of Lochinvar Marlow found enough to win by a nose. Elle Driver finished second and a half head away in third was Daenerys Monelli. Black Herc finished a close up fourth after looming as a winning possibility out wide on the track. Karon’s Boy has been a consistent money-spinner since joining the Glen Price kennel and now has 8 wins and 19 minor placings from his 43 career starts.
