Coursing Treble To Harvey And Double To Johnstone

Murray Harvey came coursing and went home with 3 winners; Kim Johnstone came coursing and went home with 2 winners.

It makes you wonder why more trainer don’t go coursing? Why don’t you go coursing and see how many winners you can go home with?

As a point of interest, from the greyhounds who competed at the last meeting 10 went on and won on the circle – what does this tell you? Think about it.

An impressive display was handed in by Lynette Simes’ Dakota Octane (Pure Octane x Dakota Diva) when winning the feature event, Cairnsy’s Pet Food & Fodder Novice from Yvonne Maxwell’s Conner’s Angel in 15.17 – watch out for this greyhound, he’s most impressive.

Murray Harvey’s 3 winners were 2 litter mates, Bitta Spirit and Bitta Beer (Bitta Awesome/Wedding Kiss) and Airbag (Bombastic Shiraz/Bellharz Sunset).

Chicken Dinner and West on Kobe provided Kim Johnstone with her double.

Justin Penn has Howzat Colmar looking a treat and she handed in the fastest run of the day when winning the Adelaide Plains Veterinary Services Open Stake in 15.00.

Jumbo Jax provided Ken McAuley with an impressive win in the Ruby Loans Maiden Stake in 15.10 – this race carried an additional $200 bonus from the Racing is Fun Syndicate.

The next meeting is scheduled for Sunday 3rd May.
