West & McAlister Plunder Armidale

Greyhound racing returned to Armidale on Saturday for a nine-race program, with the local trainers relatively unsuccessful. Only Uralla’s Michelle Shambler flying the flag for the local area.

Her dog Totalled took out race three.

Tenterfield’s Peter McAlister and Beechwood’s Maureen West both scored a double, while trainers from Theodore, Tamworth and Oxley Vale took the remaining spoils.
