Beryl breaks through for first local win

Monday, March 5, 2018

The well-bred Dyna Beryl broke through for her first SA win at Sunday’s Tara Raceway meeting and in doing so presented long-time Serviceton trainer David Brodhurst with his first success this year.

A minor placegetter at the local track at her past four starts, the black bitch put the writing on the wall for a Tara Raceway win after running Lektra Lucy – a winner again at the weekend when defeating Dynamite Danger – to 1¾ lengths over 512 metres on February 18.

And in Sunday’s Metal Worx Stake (512 m) Dyna Beryl, after being fairly away from box four, worked into a handy spot mid-race before taking over off the back and eventually running out a 2¼ length winner over Dimora Flash in 30.39 seconds.

Whelped in December 2015, Dyna Beryl is by Dyna Villa out of the US bred 38-race winner Really Gonnarock who is a daughter of Afleet Alex and Xtreme Hustler.

She was advertised on Greyhound-Data late last year after having won two races at Bendigo and Ballarat, Brodhurst picking her up for $3000 before offering a share to Bordertown meat worker Geoff Mann.

“Geoff had previously raced two dogs without success so it probably wasn’t all that surprising that he was a bit reluctant to part with $1500 for a half-share,” Brodhurst said.

“So I gave him the option of having a look at her for four runs before making a decision. He then took up the option with the result being that Sunday’s win gave him what he had been striving for – a photograph to hang on the wall.”
