Simpson savours his purple patch
That was delighted trainer Peter Simpson's verdict after capping a memorable 24 hours with more success at the latest Casino greyhounds meeting.
After seeing his promising racer Raging Obsession add to its growing reputation with a significant win at Albion Park on Thursday night, Simpson's fledgling charge Glamour Row took out the $2600 Blue Paws Final (411m) at Queen Elizabeth Park yesterday.
The Stratheden trainer, who also enjoyed yet another win at yesterday's meeting with Surfin' Sienna, said he was looking forward to celebrating his triumphs in quiet but satisfying fashion.
"It's definitely been a hectic period," he said.
"I'm looking forward to sitting down with a beer, taking a breath and enjoying it.
"You have enough bad times in this game so a period like this makes it all the better.
"It's just been simply unbelievable."
Glamour Row justified its tag as $1.70 favourite in the final with an impressive victory from box one.
Yet another of Simpson's up-and-coming runners, Latrobe Lorian, was second.
The triumph came just hours after the 23-month-old bitch's brother took out the RQL Young Guns Final (520m) at the Brisbane track.
It was another notable success for the racer, which has already racked up about $20,000 prizemoney in its promising career.
"You have to pinch yourself when a dog like this come along," Simpson said.
"His sister will not be as good, but I am happy with her.
"She has some improving to do, but she is a handy bitch."
Simpson's fine meeting was completed with two-year-old Surfin' Sienna's first career win in the $1385 Madsen Meats Maiden Stake (484m).
It was also a day to remember for the Salmoni training clan, with Robert, Trevor and Elizabeth all among the other winners.
