Wow She’s Fast slaughters Speed Star series field

The increasingly popular races in greyhound racing are winning over spectators after Wow She’s Fast again proved why she is one of Australia’s most popular greyhounds on Thursday night.

Wow She’s Fast defeated Big Opal Rocks in the event by running the fastest match race of the night in 29.11 over the 515m journey.

The champion bitch paid $1.35 with greyhound bookmakers which to us looked healthy odds.

The Speed Star concept is a feature event where two greyhounds race against each other in a match race with the fastest runner of the series declared the winner.

This type of racing is attracting healthy and increasing popularity with racegoers more than open to seeing the concept become even more frequent.

Horse racing enthusiast and punter, Peter Bonner, told that he believed two dog racing could become a regular on greyhound racing calendars.

“I follow the horses more so than the greyhounds but I must admit I am attracted to this type of racing…it’s good,” he said.

“It’s head to head betting and you don’t have to concentrate as much when watching the actual racing and there is less interference obviously.

“I think it’s something the greyhound board could look at by making more of these events, even for country class greyhounds you know.”
