A fairly cold night on the Central Coast but the patron’s trackside were all very comfortable in our new modern air conditioned facilities.
Four heats over 400m for dogs with 1-4 wins highlighted the programme & some smart times were recorded.
The first of the heats was taken out in good style by the Pauline Moran trained Spring Jethro in 23.51. Spring Jethro is now the winner of 3 races from only 4 starts.
Heat 2 of the series went to Call Me Faust owned & trained by Pavka Stamenkovic of Londonderry in 23.50. Call Me Faust has now recorded 2 wins & 3 minors from 7 starts.
The third heat was won by Opal Cove owned & trained at Budgewoi by Les Hudson. Opal Cove recorded a smart 23.30 & took his overall starts to 5 wins & 4 minors from 14 starts.
The Final heat went to Blackalls Bandit for trainer Michael Crawford who also part owns this son of Closing Argument. Blackalls Bandit’s time was a B.O.N 23.28.
Aa all of the heat winners broke 11.00sec for the first section, the box draw for the next week’s $2000 to the winner Final is going to be all important.
Poppy’s Secret having his first try at 600m came with a well timed run to score a good win in 35.87 for Frank Jamieson. Poppy’s Secret had previously scored over the 515m trip at Gosford, but looks as if staying could be his future.
The John Harris owned & trained Emo Appeal recorded B.O.N figures of 30.26 when he defeated litter brother & kennel mate Shizzle Appeal by 4¾ lens in the 4/5th 515m event. Emo Appeal was also the Jackpot Dog for the night. Unfortunately for John, the big one went off last week.
That about wraps it up for this week, hope to see you at Gosford sometime soon.
