Ultra Sense history
The Ultra Sense was run for the first time in 2013 and has been a listed event since its inception. The feature is named after the greyhound Ultra Sense which won the first Golden Easter Egg final back in 1990.
Ultra Sense – over the years
2013: El Brooklyn took out the first running of the Ultra sense, with the daughter of El Galo and Dark Marne destroying a high quality line-up to score by three quarters of a length in a hot 29.76. The white and blue bitch was trained by Jason Thompson who knows a thing or two about saluting on Easter Egg night, having won the main event on two occasions (2012 Don’t Knocka Him, 2016 Moreira).
2014: Awesome Project won the event in 2014, with the black dog registering an identical time to El Brooklyn from the year before. The son of Collision and Honour Phase defeated a handy field of sprinters including Stilton Blue (2nd), Smashing Sally (5th) and Queen Esther (8th) to land the $15,000 winner’s purse.
2015: Flash Earner did enough to write her name in the history books. The black bitch defeated Rare Pearl by two and one quarter lengths in a nippy 29.91.
2016: Run on March 26, Ray and Sharon Webster’s Hugo Boss won the Ultra Sense. A son of Dyna Lachlan and Lagoon Lowanna, the fawn and white flash showed great early dash from box five, with his competitors unable to go past him in the run to the line.

2017: The most recent edition of the race was taken out by WA sensation Penny Monelli. The Dave Hobby-trained bitch carved across from box seven, slotting in behind Zambora Cross in the early stages before finishing too strongly. The black speedster stretched out to score by three and three quarter lengths over Goodwin Terry in 29.86.
