Chief shows who?s boss



GENISTA Chief scored an emphatic win in the Flynn's Transport Trophy Final at the Lismore greyhound meeting on Tuesday night.

After running fourth to begin with, Genista Chief gradually worked his way into the race to be on the heels of the early leader Under Stress as the field swept down the back straight.

Genista Chief, which started at the luxury odds of $8.20, was far too strong in the run home to beat a gallant Under Stress ($9.40) by 23⁄4 lengths with Genista Flyer ($7.60) another two lengths away.

Anarchy, the $2.40 favourite, was never in the hunt; a poor start cost him any winning chance.

Genista Flyer recorded a smart 30.22s for the 520m journey and completed a winning double for Neil Falls as Toohey's Black had won well earlier in the evening in 30.30s for the 520m.

More than 200 parents and students from Our Lady Help of Christians School at South Lismore participated in a fundraiser for the school.

They enjoyed a great night with the face painting and jumping castle well patronised.
