Prince in total command



COMMAND Prince made a one-act affair of the $10,500 Southside Agencies Big Maiden (420m) at the Lismore greyhounds on Tuesday night.

Command Prince jumped second while his main opposition St Rocket and Dance Ona Dime were sixth and seventh away.

Command Prince drove to the lead in the run into the back straight and the $8000 winner's purse was in his keeping.

The son of Token Prince - Must Obey had a comfortable 41⁄2 lengths to spare on the line over Dance Ona Dime, which made up tremendous ground after a rough passage early.

Lucy's Leaving, a kennel-mate and litter sister to the winner, took third prizemoney a further four lengths away.

The winning time of 24.05 seconds was the best recorded at Lismore since the track was resurfaced following the July flood.

It was a delighted trainer Matthew Reid and owner Pat Hennessy at the presentation.

A big future seems assured for Command Prince and Dance Ona Dime, the runner-up, because both greyhounds will relish a step up to a distance further than 420 metres.
