Billy Blue hopes to take the win
YANDINA trainer Cynthia Elson will look for her dog Major Billy Blue to continue its good form when he competes at Thabeban Racecourse tomorrow.
The fast dog blitzed its rivals in the heats of last week’s Queensland Greyhound’s Young Guns Cup before going down to Unpainted in the final.
Major Billy Blue was one of the favourites to take out the Young Guns title, but came into a red hot dog on the wrong day.
Unpainted, which was not fancied to win, beat its competition by seven lengths in fast time.
Elson will be looking to make amends in the Best Eight race at Bundaberg Greyhound Racing Club tomorrow.
The third grade dog will come up against first grade dogs including perenial favourite Back Page for the $300 prizemoney.
The dog that had everyone talking last week, Richo’s Choice, will have its second start in Bundaberg tomorrow.
Richo’s Choice set the Bundaberg Greyhound Racing Club course alight last weekend, running a fast 26.8sec at debut at Thabeban.
The River Heads-trained dog will contest the novice race against race more experienced dogs.
But his winning times is the fastest of any dog racing in that race.
Trainer Marie Richards will hope the dog can continue its golden run at Thabeban with another fast time.
The first race at Thabeban will start at 1.30pm with the maidens taking to the track for $380 prizemoney.
It was in that race last week, Richo’s Choice stole the show.
A similar performance could be beckoning this week when the maidens hit the sand.
