Plenty more wins in store for promising young greyhound
KINGSBRAE DI made full use of box one when she continued on her winning way in the North State Finance Trophy Final (420m) at the Lismore greyhounds on Tuesday night.
Kingsbrae Di, owned and trained by Charlie Northfield at Stratheden, jumped straight to the lead and cleared out for an easy 33⁄4-length win over Robcardi Riddle with Roseberry Rose 11⁄4 lengths away third. The winner clocked 24.50 seconds.
Kingsbrae Di does not turn two until February, but has now won six of her 10 race starts with three minor placings. More wins are in store for this promising youngster.
The other fancied runner, Highlee, was badly checked just after the start and it will pay to forget the run by that greyhound as he is sure to atone, especially when he races over 520 metres.
Go Wild Bean returned to his brilliant best with an effortless 10-length victory in the Natraspray Stake (420m).
Go Wild Bean showed his liking for outside draws and the Lismore track when he crossed the field soon after the start and made it a procession.
He recorded a sizzling 24.07 seconds for owner/ trainer Mitch Northfield, which is easily the fastest time recorded in Lismore since the track surface was changed in July.
