Brendan Bunworth, of Penshurst, back in the game and carrying on from where he left off several years ago, continues to enjoy success at Tara Raceway with his giveaway greyhounds.
Working in conjunction with wife Kayla, the pair has now trained 10 winners this year at the local track, the latest being Stilton Rush in the Metal Worx Stake (400 m) at last Sunday’s meeting.
Having her first start for Bunworth, Stilton Rush, who won her maiden at Horsham back in July, quickly found the front from box one and held out short-priced favourite Jervois Bruit to win by four lengths in a quick 22.95 seconds.
And there’s certainly not much wrong with her breeding, the February 2017 black bitch by Magic Sprite out of Ada Mary, the daughter of High Earner a winner of 18 races, including two Group 3 events over 720 metres at Wentworth Park, for $142,000 in stakemoney.
