SA Greyhound News: 100-1 pop gets up at Murray Bridge
Giveaway greyhound Flatty Hunter saluted for her owner/trainer at odds of 100-1 on Tuesday at Murray Bridge, notching up her third win in six weeks.
Anthony Harding of Hamilton took over ownership and training of the daughter of Zambora Brockie x Lektra Vicki after obtaining the fawn bitch for free off Branxholme's Lachlan McLean three months ago.
Since then, the 27 kilogram bitch has been a good little money spinner for Harding, and it's not just the prizemoney.
The well-traveled trainer has backed her at each of her three wins including Tuesday's 100-1 win.
“I had $10 on her at 71-1 fixed, so that was good, but I was going to have $20 on her,” he said.
Over the 300 metre distance, Flatty Hunter won by just under a length and not surprisingly she was attended to by the stewards straight away for a post race sample, as is usually the circumstances when 100-1 winners salute at the greyhounds.
“When she won I wasn't really surprised,” Harding said.
“I thought she would go well from out there (box seven) and I did tell a few others to back her. My housemate won $500 on her with a five dollar bet so he was happy too.”
Radley Bale, Run Like Jess impress at Angle Park
On Thursday night at Angle Park, in the two main races of the night it was wins to Radley Bale (Ossie Chegia) over the distance journey over 730m and Run Like Jess for Adrien Chevalier, running 34.07 over the middle distance journey of 595m.
Radley Bale has now racked up 22 wins from his 39 starts taking his career earnings to $87.600.
The son of Fernando Bale x Fantastic Dotty has proven he competes with the best after recent visits to New South Wales and Victoria, and if last night's run was anything to go by, he might be heading back interstate soon.
It was the dogs second win over the distance at Angle Park.
Run Like Jess is another who is showing consistency after heading over from Victoria in September.
The black dog out of Fernando Bale x Paua to Avoid has now won six races from 21 starts since racing predominantly at Gawler and Angle Park.
After missing the kick in his last four starts, he showed that he is a different dog when he begins well and is very hard to catch, especially when from his favourite box in one.
Run Like Jess was overs on fixed-odds betting at paid $5.50.
