Greyhounds: Casino’s winning Cougar
COSMIC Cougar, left, took out the Westlawn Finance Christmas Gift (411m) at the final Casino greyhounds meeting of the year.
The winner is trained by Keith Anderson, who purchased the dog only the week before, so it proved to be a quick return on his investment.
Cosmic Cougar jumped from box five, started a $3.90 chance and stormed home to win by three-quarters of a length.
Maelstrom Mick ($28) finished second and Stone Prince ($4.70) third. Spritely Ryley ($2.80) was the unplaced favourite, finishing fourth, two-and-a-half lengths behind the third placegetter.
Friday greyhound racing at Casino is scheduled to resume on January 15.
