Last Sunday’s JB Irrigation Stake (512 metres) at Tara Raceway turned out to be a memorable race for Kongorong greyhound trainer John Little and the Bungaloo Syndicate when Springvale Alysa, Bungaloo Thor and Bungaloo Ruby filled the placings.
As far as Springvale Alysa was concerned it was a case of the black bitch maintaining her unbeaten record at the track, bringing up her third 512 metre win at Tara Raceway after quickly finding the front and then defying her kennelmates to run her down in a personal best time of 30.07 seconds.
And littermates Bungaloo Thor and Bungaloo Ruby, by Addis Boy out of 2013 Mount Gambier Anniversary Cup winner Camo’s Prinny – and bred by Little – both ran up to their best form.
By Dyna Double One x Springvale Cool, Springvale Alysa’s the dog that Little, and his partners Kevin Mullan and Liz Newberry, purchased from Adelaide with proceeds from their winning Calcutta investment after Xtreme Caution had won this year’s Mount Gambier Cup.
With a win also at Warrnambool in early May, she’s been a handy pick-up for the syndicate, now looking to further boost her earnings in the forthcoming Auction Series at Angle Park.
A series for greyhounds sold through the 2016 Auction Series at Angle Park, $4590 heats will be run at Angle Park over 515 metres on June 7 with the $19,000 final a week later, along with a $4590 consolation for greyhounds failing to make the final.
Also likely to tackle the Auction Series is the Nicole Stanley trained Bereluke, a 29.78 seconds winner over 515 metres at Sandown Park in early May.
