Bye Bye Bucks Scratched From 2012 Topgun

The sole representative from New South Wales Bye Bye Bucks has been scratched from the $215,000 after sustaining an achilles tendon injury.

Trainer Ken Lewis confirmed the news this morning.

“We are absolutely devastated. His achilles has been diagnosed as a grade one tear, so he certainly won't be back racing in the short term. A few people have suggested in could be a two to three month injury, but we will see how the dog goes.”

“He just didn't look right in a trial at last week, so we knew something was wrong. It was an honour to be selected in the field, and hopefully we can be back racing before too long,” said Lewis.

First emergency will now gain a start in the Group 1 Sky Racing TOPGUN, and will begin from box eight unless there is another scratching from the original field of eight.

If another greyhound is scratched, the names of both David Bale and Transcend Time (second emergency) will be drawn to determine which greyhound would start from each of the two vacated .

It means trainer will join and as trainers with a two-pronged attack in this year's event, worth $150,000 to the winner.
