Bogan Girl has goods
PATRICK Lavis believes one of his charges could be heading for big things after underlining its promise with another win at the latest Lismore greyhound meeting.
Bogan Girl claimed another win for the Tregeagle trainer with victory in the $2215 635m Goonellabah Newsagency Stakes.
The two-year-old, which has placed in eight of its 12 outings and won over various distances, saw off a handy field to take the win.
Lavis said he had received interest from Melbourne and Sydney trainers in the racer, which overcame a useful field to take top spot as a $5 shot.
"I think she will be all right," he said.
"She can run reasonably quickly but she has the right attitude as well. There is a long way to go, but this is what you get into greyhound training for."
The black bitch overcame some solid racers, including fellow podium finishers Bralyn Spider and Apache Kitten.
It has a sound pedigree, with mother Bit Chili a former track record holder over 600m at Casino.
"When I broke her in I could see she was special. She just has that 'let me at them' attitude," Lavis said.
"She is bred to chase. Put her in the paddock and she will race her shadow."
Lavis said he would give Bogan Girl another start over 600m at Lismore before deciding on its future.
Ashleigh Keep had the night's most notable winner, with outsider Where's Cha Cha taking the $1750 520m Lamas and Brown Optometrists Stakes.
Lavis has another promising racer among the entries at Casino tomorrow.
Bogan Miss, which has won three of its four outings so far, goes in the $2015 411m Westlawn Finance Stakes at the Queen Elizabeth Park track.
Twelve races are on the card and action starts at 12.12pm.
