Saturday saw the team represented across three tracks with runners at Limerick, Shelbourne and Waterford and scoring some nice winners at all three.
At Shelbourne Fahrenheit Lor ran a fine race to take the honours in the We Race Four Nights A Week Mini Open 550. Leading on the run up she was in full control of the contest along the far side, coming under slight pressure on the run in, she went on to cross the line a length to the good in 29.80. Macaroon Cruz returned to his more familiar 4 bend trip as he ran out a comprehensive winner of the The Lucky Last @ Shelbourne Park Open 550. Producing a good start he challenged on the inside at the opening turn where he took up the running, pulling away he went on to score in facile fashion by seven lengths in 29.79.
At Limerick we sent three runners to traps for the 2018 Barking Buzz App Irish St Leger Open 550 Final where had to settle for second, third and fourth places on this occasion. Clonbrien Prince totally missed the break but battled hard to get himself up to fourth place whilst Lenson Blinder and Nice Charmer were racing each other all the way for second and third places respectively but ultimately had to settle for this as they came home behind the worthy winner, Blastoff Jet. Congratulations to all connected. Earlier in the evening, Lughill Robbie had used his experience, and a nice trap draw, to stay wide on the track and swoop round the outside to land the www.LimerickGreyhoundStadium.ie Open 350.
Newinn Lester qualified for The Gain Greyhound Nutrition Select 525 Final at Waterford as he grabbed 3rd place in the opening Semi Final. Leading early he was eventually collared on the run in, going down by a length and a neck, with kennel mate Clona Blaze back in fourth spot. Blue East gave us a nice win in the last as he was an all the way winner of the second of the Noel Ryan Tree Surgeon 525 Semi-Finals, winning by a length and half in 29.60.
The win at Shelbourne by Fahrenheit Lor bought up a superb milestone for the team as we hit 200 winners for the year, a testament to the hard work and dedication that goes in by all involved and none of which would be possible without the continued support of all of our owners. Thank You!
