Following ten heats of the World’s Richest Greyhound event; the Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg, the top 32 greyhounds have progressed to four semi-finals to be conducted at Wentworth Park this Saturday night (March 31).
Last Saturday’s run offs produced some sensational results including current Wentworth Park 520m track recorder holder Noble Pedro, silencing his critics with a best of the night 29.53 performance.
Trainer Mary Wright said she was pleasantly surprised with the greyhound’s efforts and anticipates improvement in the coming weeks.
“He (Noble Pedro) didn’t enjoy Melbourne and the travelling,” Wright said following the event.
“We trialled him during the week and he went well, and I expect there is more improvement in him yet.”
Noble Pedro will line up in Race 7, Semi-Final 3 on Saturday night against fellow heat winner Nova Vite and 2011 Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg placegetter Adam Meway.
The 2012 Golden Easter Egg Semi-Finals fields were not drawn randomly but composed by the NSW GBOTA using a matrix ranking each greyhound on their heat placing and then their corresponding finishing time.
The NSW GBOTA will conduct the box draw for the 2012 Group 1 Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg final on Monday April 2 at 11am after the semi finals this Saturday night.
