Leading the way with multiple wins

Compton trainer Tracie Price went into last Thursday’s time-graded meeting with 99 Tara Raceway winners this year. But the 100 quickly came up following the running of the first race, the Exchange Printers Mixed Stake (600 m).

Whole Way was Tracie Price’s 100th winner at Tara Raceway this year.

Having his first run for Price, Whole Way, a son of Spring Gun x Springvale Hope, led all the way to defeat Galactic Anubis by 5½ lengths in an impressive 35.23 seconds for owners Daniella Madalinski and Michael Ceravolo.

Also going around for the first time for Price was litter brother Right Way, equally as impressive for Madalinski and Ceravolo in the Todd’s Photographics 1-4 Wins Stake (400 m) when defeating Gold Rocks by 3½ lengths in a best of day 23.00 seconds.

And bringing up a treble for Price was Velocity Alibi who found winning form again for the first time since July with an all the way victory over Hands On Deck in the Gambier Vets 1-4 Wins Stake (400 m).

Also training a treble – her second this year at Tara Raceway – was Yvonne King of Langhorne Creek. She was successful with Allinga Ollie, Allinga Chloe and Allinga Tianna for owners Trevor and Tracey Davey.

In July, connections landed a treble with Allinga Ollie, Allinga Chloe and Allinga Grin – King, a trainer with 30 years’ experience, reiterating that she believed a change of track was a great way for greyhounds to reinvent themselves.

Whole Way, Right Way, Allinga Ollie and Allinga Chloe all trace back to the successful producer Little Looper, best known as the dam of Worm Burner.
