El Grand Senor Missing From 2011 Group 1 Adelaide Cup Nominations

At closing time today, GRSA had received a total of 82 nominations for the 2011 Tattsbet.com Adelaide Cup.

The most surprising omission is that of boom Victorian greyhound El Grand Senor.

The 40kg black dog is the winner of three Group 1 races and has a stud career ahead of him, but is yet to race or win outside his home state of Victoria.

The Group 1 Adelaide Cup or even the Group 2 Gosford Gold Cup looked ideal races for the Carolyn Jones trained greyhound to prove his versatility by competing and winning interstate. Unfortunately he has not contested either.

The 2010 Sandown Shootout winner and Darren Brown trained Cosmic Chief now looks to head the 82 nominations with other notable nominations being kennelmate Cosmic Planet, Sandown Laurels finalist Kalden Athena, Darren McDonald trained greyhounds Perfect Fancy and Octane Show, Penthouse for Jason Thompson, Sale Cup winner Symmetry, Silver Chief finalist Kilty Lad, and evergreen Dyna Forte.

Local greyhounds Boozeroo, Tomic, Dentax Bale, Kihael Kofi, Flying Molly and Aston Elite, will all look to provide stern opposition on their home track.

The Adelaide Cup Selection Panel will meet this afternoon and determine the top 16 in to the Adelaide Cup Semi Finals.

The selection panel will also determine the greyhounds who will be invited for next weeks Advertiser Interstate Challenge.

The final fields for the Interstate Challenge and Cup Heats will be drawn tomorrow (Friday 31st December) at approximately 1.30pm.

The 82 nominations for the 2011 Group 1 Adelaide Cup are:
