Wylie takes a double win
CONDONG greyhound trainer Lee Wylie bagged a winning double with litter mates Birkdale Boy and Naughty As at the Casino Greyhound meeting last Friday.
From a Big Daddy Cool - Go Wild Lady litter, both greyhounds have impressive career statistics to date.
Birkdale Boy recorded his fifth win from 13 starts when he won a fifth grade 411m in 23.28 seconds, defeating the consistent Cat Scratch Feva and Penny Adios.
He made full use of his good draw (1) and led all the way. Naughty As overcame her poor box (4) when she began brilliantly to lead all the way and win in a slick 23.12 seconds from Bralyn Cheryl and Little Missie.
Ronray Reward, trained at Greenridge by Robert McGregor, followed up his good third in open company at Lismore the previous Tuesday with a sound win in the Stayers stk 620m.
Jumping near the lead, Ronray Reward quickly assumed control and held on to defeat his kennelmate All Cloud and Socks Rose Hi.
Litter mates Miss Noodles and King Can To, owned and trained in different interests, also recorded strong wins.
By Clappin Thunder and Pearl Hazard, Miss Noodles continued her great form with a sound win in the Westlawn Finance Sprint 411m, registering a hollow win in 22.89 seconds to rack up her eighth win from 21 starts for trainer Shane Robinson.
King Can To, prepared by Chris Supple, continued his recent form, winning a fifth grade 484m in 27.64 seconds.,
He began well from box five and won at good odds from Rumble Magic and Dancing Malawi.
Local trainer Neil Falls, successful with Cold Fusion in the recent Ipswich Cup, continued his success when Uki Sheila was quickly away from box six in a fifth grade 484m, winning in 27.53 secs.
The strength of greyhounds locally was emphasised in the Ipswich Cup, with Cold Fusion winning from He Knows Uno (trained by Mick Paterson at Iluka) and third place-getter Sobbing Destiny owned by Peter and Helen Simpson and trained by Selena Zammit in Brisbane.
Long-time local supporters Norma and Claude Dacey (based in Queensland) took the Betfair Blue Paws final 411m, with Dayseas Zac prevailing by ¾ length from Star of Illa in 23.59 seconds.
The win was his second from seven starts at Casino.
