Club hopeful of boosting meetings next month

Saint Maddie scores a narrow win over Rotate and Galactic Athena at Tara Raceway last week.

The Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club is hopeful of returning to two race meetings a week next month at Tara Raceway.

Greyhound Racing SA’s All Dates Calendar has Mount Gambier scheduled to run five Sunday and four Thursday meetings in January.

And GRSA Racing Manager Shaun Mathieson is also hopeful that racing in Mount Gambier will return to some form normality come the start of the new year.

“The club hasn’t run two meetings a week since back in March but the signs are promising that by next month we should be able to get worst-to-best graded time-based meetings back in the Thursday slot,” he said.

For lower-class greyhounds, the worst-to-best graded format has since been picked up by the Warrnambool Greyhound Racing Club which is now running this type of meeting on Monday afternoons.

However, come next month trainers should have the option of running their time-graded greyhounds more regularly in races that suit.

Thursday’s 12-race meeting at Tara Raceway will see several Victorian trainers back at the track after a long absence.

In what will make a significant difference to numbers at the local venue, Lew Green, Peter Crawley, Paul and Doug Hammerstein and Tony Harding will join the recently-returned Sindy Colpoys, Cap Abbott, Robert Halliday, Monty Wilson, Robert Proctor, Ben and Lizzie Boers and Scott Blacksell.

One of the highlights of this week’s meeting will be the Bourne Kennels Open Stake (512 metres), Dean Fennell’s Saint Maddie and the Halliday-trained Rotate reversing their boxes and clashing again after the former held on to win by a head last week.

The race also includes Dyna Carnie and Perseverance, trainers David Peckham and Fennell both desperate to pick up GOTY points. And Golly Gumdrops, a first-up best of day winner last week, should make her presence felt once again from box two.
