“Buzzard surges to victory for Ernie Alldrick”

Barragup trainer Ernie Alldrick notched another win with honest greyhound Buzzard, winning tonight’s Fast Fun Affordable Grade 6 over 405m. As usual Buzzard didn’t begin with much pace from box five but there was no clear-cut leader and as a few rivals bunched at the first turn Buzzard accelerated with purpose and took the lead. The son of Bekim Bale put a few lengths on his nearest pursuer Bonbie Miss and from that point a victory was never in doubt. Buzzard posted 23.33 and defeated Bonbie Miss by two lengths and another three lengths away third was Yana Monelli. It was Buzzard’s first triumph since February, he has now won 7 of 52 career starts and all wins have resulted over the 405m journey.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 4 CROCODILE CRUSH : Mustered quickly to find the front and then recorded a fast 17.10. Is definitely on the up.

Race 5 Number 3 KANTEGA : Improved at box rise and soldiered on strongly to run a bold second behind the promising Kaytwo Monelli.
