Mickie Keato, trained by Ray Keating, was the other greyhound which trialled. Mickie Keato qualified for the Distance Championship as the winner of the Victorian Final.
His trial was conducted over 600m and his sectionals were 9.35, 22.32 and12.93, for an overall time of 35.25. Mickie Keato weighed in at 29.9kg, down .3kg on his last start.
