Zipping Kansas back to his record-winning ways

The fawn flash known as was back to his brilliant best at last night, obliterating the 622m track record to set a new time standard of 35.16.

Stepping from box three in just a field of five chasers, suited the son of and down to the ground, as he found the front early and led throughout. Previous record holder was gallant in defeat, finishing 6.25 lengths in second, with kennel mate Zipping a further 2.5 lengths away in third.

Trainer Jason Magri has always described him as a dog who needs room, given his tall and gangly and even the slightest of bumps can heavily affect his momentum. It's evident the 33kg chaser is a confidence-type dog and coming off the back of a recent distance camign at Albion Park, there are plenty of opportunities for the star stayer to cement his place on the big stage. The National Distance final will be held at next month, along with the on finals night in September.

Wentworth Park holds fond memories for Zipping Kansas as the track where he made his distance debut and stunned the greyhound fraternity, clocking a blistering 41.57 over the 720m. With a mixed bag of performances since then, including a staggering 41.27 over in his first appearance at Sandown Park, the Bulli 590m track record holder may evidently become known as Gary Clark described him as “the staying star of 2022.”
