A BOOMING WIN
The members of the newly formed Ruff N Tuff syndicate had their first win at Gawler greyhounds on Sunday night.
Their runner in the second Maiden event over the 400m journey was Subjective Booma, which was having its third race start. Finding the lead straight away, the greyhound named after North Melbourne great, “Booma” Harvey, was able to take out the event by nearly 2 lengths in the time of 23.30 secs. Finishing second was Junior Tyson for Tony Lagana of Gawler, with Diamond Jaquie third for Ross Panagiotou of Evanston Gardens.
Subjective Booma is trained by syndicate member Adam Manton, and raced in partnership with Ashley Furner, Rolland Parry and Ben Weidenbach. “Booma” was one of two pups from the same litter that Ashley purchased from NSW, with Ashley keeping one himself, and syndicating Booma. The formation of the syndicate came about through Adam training with some success, a greyhound bred by Ashley, named Rip It Ralph. Rolland had raced the sister of Rip It Ralph, and along with their mutual friend, Ben, they decided to race a greyhound together.
Based at Lewiston, Adam and Jayne Jarman have a small racing team of three, plus some pups they own, as well as rearing for other owners. They are both very committed to the industry, with Jayne being employed by the Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP), and Adam volunteering his services as well. In addition they assist GAP by temporarily housing greyhounds for them, while they are placed in the program.
