Veteran trainer Ken Cheetham was delighted to win the race named in honour of Danny Green, the GBOTA’s special guest for Saturday’s Vic Peters Classic final.
Ken won race 5 the “Green v Jones Stake” a FFA over the 520 metres with his outstanding performer Take The Kitty back from competing in The Topgun at the Meadows.
Take The Kitty finished down the track to the outstanding Cindeen Shelby there following a creditable second behind the same greyhound in the Group 1 $100,000 NCA Paws Of Thunder at Wentworth Park on October 3.
Take The Kitty’s win on Saturday was outstanding –the margin was an ever increasing 9 ¼ lengths and the time was a sizzling 29.79.
Ken was delighted with the performance of his very talented greyhound which has now won 11 and placed second three times from 18 starts at Wentworth Park over the 520 (best 29.75).
Ken was doubly pleased to have the opportunity to receive the trophy from Danny Green and to chat with the champion boxer.
