Lektra Jay Too Good In Rookie Rebel

The Andrea Dailly-trained Lektra Jay overcame box eight to take out the Group 2 Macro Meats Rookie Rebel over 600 metres at The Meadows in a fast 34.40.

The white and black son of Where’s Pedro and former distance star Elektra sat off early leader Strong Intention and proved too strong in the run to the line, winning by two and three quarter lengths, with Meadows Greyhound of the Year Stack ‘Em Flat finishing third.

Favourite Noble Pedro ($3.90) – from New South Wales – finished last.

The win was Lektra Jay’s first at Group level after fantastic placed efforts in the Group 2 Cranbourne Cup and the Group 1 Perth Cup, with Saturday’s victory pushing his prizemoney to $196,565.

The Philip Lenehan-owned chaser will now drop back in distance to race in a heat of the Group 1 Rover Mowers Australian Cup next Saturday night, with the final worth a massive $175,000 for the first time since the race’s inception in 1958.
