A couple of highlight races for this week’s report are from Race 5 Michaelkris Real Estate 400m Stake. Angaston trainer Paula Hearnden did well with Long Gully Robbi taking first place. Princess Sasha trained by Lisa Rasmussen jumped really well to take the lead but it wasn’t long until Long Gully Robbi headed and took the lead down the back straight. Long Gully Robbi continued to lead through to the end of the race winning by almost 3lengths over Princess Sasha followed by Woodside Zorro trained by Graham Smith.
In race 9 Lewiston trainer Artemio Ieraci had an excellent win with Halo Haze over the 400m Greyhound Adoption Program stake race. Halo Haze jumped well from box 2 and was never really headed, leading from Gator Bale trained by Lisa Rasmussen, Pretostella trained by Kiah Hurley followed on to finish 3rd. The winning time by Halo Haze was a smart 22.76 seconds.
