Murtoa greyhound Callanish Sprite, a desperately unlucky second at her first Tara Raceway start last week, should make amends for trainer Heather Baxter at Thursday’s time-graded meeting.
The daughter of Magic Sprite and Infinite Wish, a city-winning stayer in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and WA, last week made a real mess of the 512 metre start before finishing strongly to be beaten a half head by Mount Duke in 30.57 seconds.
Callanish Sprite has drawn box two in the Gambier Vets Stake (512 m), with Baxter, who rarely races at Tara Raceway, last successful at the track four years ago with Terra Verde.
And Molly’s Wally looks well placed in box one for Portland trainer Robert Halliday in the Klaassens Contractors Stake (512 m) as does Serendipity Gold in the Winningformula.net.au Stake (512 m) for trainer Sandra Elmes of Dunolly.
