After a night of spectacular greyhound racing when eight heats of the keenly contested Group 1 Hobart 1000 took centre stage over the 461 metres at Hobart’s Tattersall‟s Park.
We once again look forward to next Thursday night’s rich final sponsored by Wrest Point Tasmania, when one of the brilliant sprinters that have qualified will take home a cheque for $75,000.
The home town superstar Damek let none of his supporters down with another outstanding performance recording a fast 25.94 he flew through the sections in 5.14 and 11.08 and made in 13 from 13 on the track, a remarkable effort.
Not to be intimidated by the local star Melbourne Cup third placed greyhound Dee Winter came out in the following heat and lowered Damek‟s recently set track record in a strong first up on the track performance, he returned figures of 25.78.
Then in the next heat Ipswich Cup winner and narrowly beaten favourite in the Brisbane Cup Octane Show lowered the record for the second time in 20 minutes recording an awesome 25.75.
Other heat winners were Damek litter brother Decembrist (26.08), Perfect Fancy (26.06), plus Numero Uno Bale (26.18), Kilty Lad (26.13) and Octane Assassin 26.29. It will be an action packed night with plenty of prizes and entertainment for patrons making their way to the track.
