Kennel Update - 11/4/14 – Fri Apr 2014
It's been quite a successful period for the Paw in the last month tinged with a bit of disappointment.
From the one litter we bred ourselves has come Lady Goldenpaw (21-5-7-2), Henry Henriques(9-2-2-3) and Wealthy Schooner(19-5-2-4). All three have had success in the last four weeks for their owners.
Lady Goldenpaw scored a slashing all the way win at Sandown on a Thursday night for her owners in a 29.65 time. Her lightning starts invariably have her in front and out of trouble in her races and she can capitalise on any trouble behind. She was a gallant third in a Launching Pad heat at Sandown last night and has only just turned two years old.
Henry started off sedately but with race experience has developed into a very handy greyhound. A last start second at Warragul was preceded by a terrific win from the yellow at Sale utilising a similar fast start to his sister. It would be an interesting drag race between the two!!
Wealthy Schooner is not as explosive off the mark but once he settles and sights the bunny has a very strong mid-race burst that puts him into contention. Three wins at Cranbourne and two at Sale have him primed for his first city win.
Mr Tee made a triumphant return from injury with a solid second at Sale followed by a dominant Warragul victory and he too is looking at city races.
In the west, Flying West and Midnight Light have racked up a string of placings but can't get the top spot on the podium and Hot Berger just cannot find form at all. Wacky Perro went from Sydney to Mick Giniotis' kennel in SA and slauted first up at Gawler for his excited owners.
The disappointing news came just a week ago with Black Veil (53-7-4-11) and $45,000 in prize money, badly injuring a back muscle at Sandown. It appears at this stage she will probably be retired and set for motherhood.
There are a few pre-trainers about to go to trainers in the next couple of months that will give some new owners the thrill of seeing their chaser live or on TV and we will keep you updated on their debuts as they occur.
