Shakey Jakey Scratched From Magic Maiden

Greyhound racing’s newest star, Shakey Jakey, has been withdrawn from this Friday’s semi-final of the Sportingbet Magic Maiden series at Wentworth Park.

Trainer David Pringle informed ARG that his flying son of Collsion and Kiacatoo Pearl (History Lesson – Naughty Thoughts) was in doubt on his way home from Dubbo this afternoon, where he landed another track record with his brother Long Range.

“I will have a good look at him when I get home, but it is not looking good,” Pringle said, before recently confirming that he would not take his place on Friday night.

“He hurt himself in the catching pen after the heat and we are still hoping to get him up for the semi. The dog is definitely not retired though. We want to show people what he can really do. Imagine this dog at a one bend track, it could be scary.”

Shakey Jakey looked to have a mortgage on the series after lowering the Wentworth Park track record set by Punch One Out last Sunday afternoon at his first race appearance.

Shakey Jakey was phenomenal on his way to a 29.07 run which included a scintillating run home of 11.32.

The series has now been thrown wide open with a huge amount of chances now in the hunt for the $25,000 to-the-winner Group Three event.

Would’ve been a risk tonight from poor draw. Get him to bulli and maitland on big tracks. Will break those records then retire to stud.
