Remembering Bernie Bouchier

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Popular local greyhound man Bernie Bouchier must surely have a reserved sign on that coveted seat close to wood fire in the Tara Raceway clubrooms.

Dimora Flash . . . a winner at her last start.

There he was again last Sunday perched comfortably in the best seat in the house as he awaited the running of the Gambier Vets Mixed Stake (400 metres), a more than handy race that included Dimora Flash, raced by his son Kevin.

“How’s Dimora Flash going in the Greyhound of the Year?” he asked. He probably knew but we assured him that she was still going easy – leading the way by five points over Cryer’s Plugger.

Actually, the four-year-old daughter of Cosmic Rumble and the inaugural Winter Classic winner Stylish Moment has been a model of consistency this year – going into last Sunday’s race with seven wins, eight seconds and three thirds at Tara Raceway.

For all her consistency, though, it had been a couple of months since Dimora Flash had last won, her Glencoe trainer Dean Fennell well aware of just how competitive the top grade short course events are.

But at what turned out to be Dimora Flash’s last race prior to a subsequent litter by Aston Dee Bee, Sunday was her day. The black bitch led all the way from box three at the nice odds of $7 when defeating Our Man Zed by a length in 23.14 seconds.

Bernie Bouchier passed away suddenly and peacefully at home in Kongorong on January 14, 2024, aged 74.
