The four invitees for Thursday night’s listed Superstayers at Albion Park were announced on Sunday evening.
The invite-only event is held over the 710 metre trip and is worth $15,000 to the winner.
Two Victorian greyhounds as well as a Victorian-based New Zealander will join one local in the four-dog field.
The invitees announced are as follows;
Xylia Allen – Jenny Hunt – The Queen of Australian staying racing and the winner of the Group One Gold Cup at Albion Park last week. She has broken eight track records and won four Group One events. A win in this event would see her skip from fifth to third on the all-time stakes earners for Australian greyhounds.
Wag Tail – Christina Harman – A local staying star in Queensland who represented the state at the 2013 National Staying Championships. She won the 2014 Winter Chase winner at Albion Park and is the logical local selection.
Infinite Wish – Angela Langton – A regular top-line performer who has made finals in Group races in four different states over the last year. Was a runner-up in the Sydney Cup and ran third in last week’s Group One Gold Cup.
Know Class – James Shaw – A New Zealander who recently arrived on Australian shores and has already made two Group One finals. He will have his 100th career start in this race. Ran a cracking second behind Xylia Allen in the Gold Cup last week. Before that he had made the final of the Sandown Cup and will not be out of place in this race.
