“Mephitidae claims Mandurah Stockfeeds Grade 5 Final”

Banjup based trainer Cosi Dagostino took out tonight’s Mandurah Stockfeeds Grade 5 Final with brilliant short-courser Mephitidae. The oddly named greyhound was well supported after winning his heat a week earlier in 22.83. ‘Mephitidae’ is the term given to a group of small omnivorous animals found on both American continents. Second and third favourites Abba Monelli (box 8) and Patchy Kat (box 2) both began well but Mephitidae showed superior speed and charged away at the first turn. He found the line powerfully and scored by two lengths in an imprressive 22.81 over Abba Monelli (second) and Patchy Kat (third). The son of Fabregas has now started 20 times for 8 wins and 8 minor placings. Mephitidae is owned by former trainer Glen Currie who in the past prepared the likes of Heyoka Miss, Move It, Super Material, Trapper Wal and Wrong Turn.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 4 WHAT A CRAFTER : Overcame interference in the middle stages to run on strongly for third.

Race 6 Number 5 PANGEE STREET : Chalked up his third consecutive victory and flew around in 22.81.
