The race that was formerly conducted as the Egg Consolation the race honours AGRA Hall of Fame member and legendary racecaller Paul Ambrosoli.
And in true “PA” style the race was won in stunning fashion by the 2009 AGRA Greyhound of the Year Cindeen Shelby, and the call was everthing we’ve come to expect from the iconic racecaller, who clearly gets a kick calling home very good greyhounds on his home track.
Beginning perfectly from box four she gave the high quality field a galloping lesson recording 29.91 best of the night on the slowest track.
Trainer Kel Greenough hinted at a possible staying direction for the superstar with perhaps a start in the Group 1 Sandown Cup in the middle of May. She took her stats to 51 starts for 29 wins and 12 placings and her current stake earnings standing at $407,390.
The video of Cindeen Shelby’s Ambrosoli win is showcased below and listen out for one of the industry’s best giving the race named in his honour a racecall worthy of the winner.
