‘Kozzy’s’ Sale Sprint goal

A “harsh” Carly Feltham is hopeful rather than confident her homebred star Kysaiah can turn the tables on near-record heat winner Panama Canal in Sunday night’s $17,220 Sale Sprint Championship (440m). Kysaiah, winner of 15 of his 34 starts and a Group 2 Geelong Gold Cup finalist in April, was beaten for only the second time in six visits to Sale when runner-up to Panama Canal in his heat of the $11,440 to-the-winner Sprint. Kysaiah ($6.20) showed great acceleration to lead from Box 7 but was overtaken mid-race by $1.20…

Fabio to ‘Hooke’ five straight

Good things come to those who wait and that’s certainly been the case with middle distance newcomer Our Fabio, which is chasing a fifth straight win in Saturday night’s lucrative Grade 5 600m final at The Meadows. Trained by Wayne and Jane Hooke, Our Fabio has come into his own since celebrating his third birthday in July, winning six of his last eight starts. The son of Cosmic Rumble and Sweet Spud had won just once in his previous 14 assignments before embarking on his current career best run of…

The Stir Up featuring Zippy Tesla, Ferdinand Boy and Panama Canal

GRV’s Peter Quilty, Gerard Guthrie and Trent Langskaill provide their thoughts on some of the star greyhounds racing in Victoria.   Keep an eye on these, they are worth saving in your WatchDog Blackbook!   Gerard  Welcome back from your break, Quilts. Did you miss Trent and me? Quilts  Of course I missed you guys and by the way, I was aware of Wow She’s Fast breaking the Angle Park 530-metre track record last week while I was relaxing. Gerard  Wow She’s Fast and four more Victorian greyhounds will line up in…

‘Wow’ is the hour

Will Wow She’s Fast land a Group 1 ‘triple crown’ in next Friday night’s Adelaide Cup final (530m) at Angle Park? That seems a $100,000 rhetorical question as Victoria’s sprint queen is a short-priced $1.60 favourite in South Australia’s blue riband event – albeit she has drawn awkwardly in box five. Prepared by ‘Team Greenough’, Wow She’s Fast ($1,175,870) – fifth on the all-time money list – won this year’s G1 Maturity Classic and G1 Sapphire Crown. She also won last year’s inaugural $750,000 Phoenix purse, along with this year’s…

Chase a Great concept

The Great Chase – supporting the disability sector – has been one of the sport’s greatest community-conscious innovations since its inception in 2003. And it continues to get even greater! This year’s Group 3 ‘Racing and Community Events Series’ is no exception and is poised for a great start with heats at Bendigo (500m) and Traralgon (500m) on Friday. The heats continue at Sandown Park (515m) and Sale (440m) on Sunday. Invariably, the Great Chase is a stepping-stone to greatness. So, here are some of the aspirants with ‘great expectations’…

Abela eyes ‘Alpine’ ascent

Paul Abela expects promising duo Alpine Butterfly and Panadero Warrior to make their presence felt in feature events ‘home and away’ on Thursday and Friday nights. Abela has somewhat surprisingly nominated lightly raced Alpine Butterfly ahead of established Group performer Aston Ulysses as his best chance in Thursday night’s G1 Adelaide Cup heats at Angle Park. Then on Friday at Geelong, Abela is confident another emerging talent in Panadero Warrior will pass the biggest test of his 16-start career in the $14,960 Hugh Emmerson Memorial Final (460m). Aston Ulysses (Heat…
