Wintery Day at Gawler Greyhounds 22/05/2020
It was a “Wild and wooly” day out at Gawler but that didn’t stop Ray Burgess Trained greyhound Bangor Sophia winning again.
She was sent out as an easing $2.40 favourite and from box 2 over the 400metres and jumped straight to the front with a sizzling 8:66 first split (the second dog went 9:42).
Sir Julian and American Movie got into a bit of a tangle behind Sophia which gave some of the slower starters an opportunity of a place, but in regard to Sophia it was just a matter of how far…… how far turned out to be 9 1/4 lengths with Sophia stopping the clock in a personal best, and best of the day time, of 22:86, 2nd place went to last week’s winner Tanjil Ace.
The win today gives her three wins on the bounce and 5 wins from 6 career starts, which is a great start.
Racing again this coming Friday and again on Tuesday. The heats for the Gawler Produce are to be held shortly and there will be some very talented Greyhounds lining up over the coming weeks.
All the action can be viewed on Sky Racing.
