20170526 – Mandurah Friday

“Smooth Ride at Mandurah for Erenshaw”

Promising young greyhound Smooth Ride was a very impressive winner of tonight’s $39 Friday Buffet Novice over 405m. The son of Turanza Bale was heavily backed from box two and after a moderate jump scooted to the lead at the first turn. Second favourite Betstakker zoomed to second and gave pursuit but was unable to reel in Smooth Ride who maintained a four length advantage. Smooth Ride is owned by John Finn from Geelong and is prepared out of Canning Vale by Terry Erenshaw. He recorded a sizzling 22.53 over the 405m journey, a time that should see him charge through the grades in a matter of weeks. The lightly raced (only five starts) chaser won by seven lengths at Cannington at his previous start and seemed to relish the big roomy Peel circuit this evening.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 3 BETSTAKKER : Displayed serious mid race muster when a nice second behind the promising Smooth Ride.

Race 3 Number 3 SOUTH : Proved too strong for Skylab, winning his 17th race by a head.
