Red Bikini scored an exciting win in the Goonellabah News Agency Final over 635 metres at the Lismore greyhounds on Tuesday night July 22.
Loina Bar was the early leader but shifted off the track down the back straight to drop back to third. In the meantime Red Bikini who only 7th away was steadily making up ground and swept to the lead on the home turn.
Lona Bar then came again to set out after Red Bikini to fail in a thrilling finish by the shortest possible margin to overhaul the winner.
Red Bikini who is owned and trained by David Keep in Queensland had a nose to spare over Lona Bar with Sir Vale 1.3/4 lens away in third spot in the time of 37.93 secs.
A bumper crowd attended the City of Lismore Lions Club fund raiser at the meeting, with the beneficiaries being local Rural Fire Services and the Lismore Scouts.
