Zipping Remus rebounds from marring offence in flying 29.45 Wentworth Park win
The wayward Zipping Remus put his best paw forward at Wentworth Park yesterday winning a 5th Grade 520m event by daylight in 29.45.
On a day when the Wentworth Park greyhound track was displaying a distinct bias toward greyhounds boxed in box one, Zipping Remus exited the red box running almost half a second quicker than any other greyhound on they day.
Eight of the 11 races at the Glebe circuit were won by greyhounds starting from box one, but the performance of Zipping Remus was noteworthy nonetheless.
The John and Minnie Finn-trained greyhound was having his first race start since being charged with marring another greyhound in a Dubbo race on May 13, but made every post a winner, leading throughout to win by 10 lengths.
Zipping Remus was sent out a hot -333.33 favourite with greyhound bookmakers, despite the presence of litter sister Zipping Rousey in the field.
