20170527 – Cannington Saturday

LINI DANCO (Swift Fancy- Magic Moves) began well and shot straight to the lead from box 3 in the final of the Gr 2 Greyhounds WA, WA Oaks. The Cosi Dagostino trained bitch won by 3 lengths over Moment To Jive and West On Maisie in 29.88. The win was the biggest in the sport for Dagostino who trains a small team from his Banjup kennel.

ART NOVEAU (Barcia Bale- Zelemar Fever) went within a half length of Teddy Monelli’s track record with a 7 length win over Jazz Get On in 34.60. The Chris Halse trained bitch started a short priced favourite the previous week when finding trouble in a heat of the Gr 2 WA Oaks and finishing unplaced. The black bitch is now undefeated in two starts over the 600 metres.

IONA CARLSON (Swift Fancy- Iona Habit) returned to the winners list after 5 placings with a neck win over race favourite Ochre Keroma in a PB 35.08. The Michael Johnston trained dog has been very consistent since arriving from Victoria and has now won twice from 10 starts over the 600 metres.

MARYDOLL (Elite State- Flying Sienna) showed speed to lead from box 3 and held off the late charge of Yuup to win by a head in 29.97. The Corey White trained bitch enjoyed the drop back in class to record her 13th career victory.
