Harvey & Johnstone Continue To Dominate Coursing

With a 14 race program, the workers were kept busy but not as busy as Murray Harvey and Kim Johnstone with 3 winners apiece and Des Hockley and Paul Turner with doubles.

Miss Eva Mai continued on her winning way when taking out the Adelaide Plains Veterinary Surgery Open in the fastest time of the day, 15.00.

Murray Harvey’s three winners were Silent Groover, Little Bitta and Bitta Faith. Kim Johnstone’s Cosmic Dancer again showed her liking for coursing along with Touch of Faith and Vintage Vibe.

The quality of greyhounds nominated for this meeting was outstanding with dogs of the calibre of Aunty Vick, Everlong Bale, Ella Fair, Authentic Gal, Jumbo Jax, Exceptional Min and Snow Excuse.
