The day got off to a flying start at Border Park Raceway on Saturday when the Keith Anderson-trained Sudoku Kid won the Blue Paws Maiden and picked up the $600 bonus as well.
In its first start at the track, the nippy greyhound blitzed the field in a good time of 23.86 seconds, with Reign of Terror and Flag filling the placings.
Claude Dacey was the big winner in the second, with Dayseas Suzie racing home for the win ahead of Madge Wildfire and Prove Yourself. Dayseas Suzie was the jackpot dog for the day, picking up an extra $700 for Dacey on top of his prizemoney.
In the third it was Mr Imagination for Robert McKay over Touch of Love and Carly Bale, while in the fourth it was Teddy To Go in the last stride over Pirate Trick and Perfect Phantom.
Race five was all about Bond Beauty, who was too good for Oriana Flyer and Max Result, while in race six Diamond Series jumped in front and was never headed, running a smart 23.46s for it first win over 420m ahead of Oxley County and Revel In.
In the seventh it was another Bond, this time Bearing Bond, who came away last and made his way around every other dog in the field to beat Mitzie’s Angel and Marville Babe to the line and claim the win.
In race eight it was Steal The Bullion who claimed the top honours over Forceful and Nuff Said while in the ninth King Neptune was too good, beating Little Scout and Mooball Enforcer.
Local trainer Keith Boan had to wait all day for a win but finally secured one in the last when Culture Shock raced home ahead of Cheato and Bond’s Mission.
The next greyhound meeting at the Park is on Saturday.
