The all-important box draws for feature event finals run by the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club at Tara Raceway are now being conducted by a Greyhound Racing SA steward at the track at the completion of the heats.
GRSA steward Josh Evans (pictured) supervised the box draw for this Sunday’s Peter Rocket Summer Classic final after the two heats had been run yesterday with the final outcome being: 1 Andrew’s Gift (Tracie Price), 2 Galactic Panther (Steve Bartholomew), 3 Breemelia Swift (Tony Hinrichsen), 4 Shot Thru (Jamie Quinlivian), 5 Assertive Fury (Tony Hinrichsen), 6 Same Scenario (Tracie Price), 7 Dynamite Danger (Tracie Price), 8 Serene Machine (Jamie Quinlivian). Res. Shine On Shannah, Filthy Phantom.
On-track box draws will now be conducted for feature event finals such as the Mount Gambier Cup, Anniversary Cup, Christmas Cup and classics.
Meanwhile, the latest range of headwear was released at Tara Raceway yesterday – black caps emblazoned with the lettering “Get a piece of Team Weis” – referring, of course, to Portland trainer Brian Weis.
The launch, however, did fall a bit flat when the best Weis could come up was a third placing with Xtreme Notice.
Young Zoe stuck by her grandfather, though, agreeing to model one of the caps, big sister Alex taking the photograph.
