Last Mohican in shock dogs loss
STRAIGHT track smoke signals about Last Mohican’s expected dominance of the Bundaberg Greyhound Breeders Owners and Trainers Association Maiden classic failed to materialise when the well-fancied youngster left his arrows in his quiver.
Three heats were conducted on Saturday, with the inexperience of the dogs coming to the fore.
Heat one was a bash and crash affair from box rise, and with the lead changing many times it was Fools Eyes for Thagoona visitor Stan McLeish who claimed the winner’s purse over Ledaro Cleo. The time of 27.63sec was reflective of the trouble in the race.
Heat two of the series was more straightforward when Uno Leo jumped to the lead from Box 1 and maintained a clear advantage for the duration to salute by 2 3/4 lengths over Claim The Crown and Charlotte’s Boy another half length away in a good run of 26.96sec.
The winner was prepared by Tracy Kunde of Caboolture.
Heat 3 was another race that had its fair share of drama as Ledaro Holly took over her customary role as leader going down the back.
Approaching the home turn Diamond Facet was putting down the challenge and Sunshine Boy was also looming.
These three runners became entangled with Ledaro Holly almost coming down and Sunshine Boy hampered as well. When they disentangled themselves Ledaro Holly hung on for victory in a very deceptive finish.
