The David Crosswell owned and prepared She’s All Class (Dyna Lachlan – It’s A She) lived up to her name at the Devonport Raceway on Tuesday afternoon by winning the Virbac Vetsearch Tasbred Maiden Final (452 metres) in brilliant fashion.
The bitch dwelt at the start slightly, but then accelerated to the lead and proceeded to give her rivals a galloping lesson, before eventually scoring by six lengths in the time of 25.87.
She bettered her heat victory time by 0.04 seconds despite not breaking 8 seconds for the first split and was responsible for a best-of-the-meeting performance.
“I would like to thank the sponsors of this race and the North West Greyhound Racing Club for programming it,” Crosswell rersponded to club chairman Gary Sutton at the presentation ceremony.
“I think I have a pretty smart little bitch here and I am hoping she can go places.”
Earlier in the programme the master trainer had been successful with another of the Dyna Lachlan – It’s A She litter, when She’s A Boomer was successful in the betfair.com Juvenile Stake (452 metres).
That bitch was declared an emergency for the Maiden Final but failed to gain a run and in scoring in the time of 26.22 showed that she also will more than pay her way in the future.
It’s A She (Bond – Iza Tora), the winner of five of her 15 lifetime outings, is proving to be a great matron for Devonport owner Leigh Alexander.
Her first litter by Head Bound has produced seven winners including the Sydney Cup aspirant Bell Haven, Jethro, Zavance Man, Beaudine, Miss Hetti, Li Li and Tiny Tilly.
Meanwhile seven heats if the rich Ministers Gift were conducted at Tuesday’s meeting and another seven will be run at the HGRC meeting at Tattersalls Park on October 18.
The top points scorers will graduate to the $10,000 to the winner final to be conducted at the LGRC’s meeting at the Tote Racing Centre on October 29.
Fastest time of Tuesday’s seven heats was recorded by the Lynden Nichols prepared Amazing Albert (Give Me Five – Mountain Brook), which recorded 25.97 in winning by seven lengths.
The Birralee based Nichols has experienced problems with the Carol Nash prepared chaser of late, but appears to have rectified the situation in time for his biggest assignment.
Litter brothers Bearville Boy and Bearville Phil, by Give Me Five from Von’s Angel, also won their respective heats and appear to be peaking at the right time.
Bred by Railton’s Gerard Allford and raced by him in partnership with Queensland’s Steve Bird, they displayed a great deal of promise early in their careers and may yet reveal their full potential.
Some good bets were landed in the first race on Tuesday’s programme when the Maurie Strickland prepared Where’s Hauky ( Where’s Pedro – Colleen Jas) was successful in The Advocate Juvenile / Graduation (580 metres).
The chaser recorded his fourth win by scoring in the time of 33.95 and paid the huge dividend of $65.70 on Tattsbet.
Several kennel followers are known to have “specked” the chaser and were understandably grinning like cats coming out of a dairy at the conclusion of the race.
