There had been bags of five winners in the past for Allendale East greyhound trainer David Peckham but he went one better at Tara Raceway yesterday when Bourne Maximum, Call Me Billy, Fabs You Go, Squishy Pea, Dyna Carnie and Bourne Blackjack were successful.
And it was Call Me Billy who was the quickest of the three Summer Classic heats (512 metres), leading all the way to defeat Elle Limes by 3¾ lengths in 30.07 seconds while the winner’s litter sister, the Peckham-trained Sweet On Me, is also through to this Sunday’s final after running second to the Tracie Price trained Rocketline in 30.14 seconds.
Peckham’s six winners on the 12-race card equalled the record effort of Price, who on Sunday, September 20, 2015 was successful with Fear The Rascal, Pam’s Boy, Who’s Doing What, Roma’s Moment, Whatta Moment and Mellow And Black.
Meanwhile, the Kevin Mugavin owned and trained Spring Value continued on his Mount Gambier Cup campaign trail with a brilliant win in the Williams Crane Hire Open Stake (512 m), leading all the way for a 10½ length win in a best of day 29.44 seconds.
