Warrnambool greyhounds continued their unbeaten run in the Warrnambool v. Mount Gambier Border Challenge (450 metres) tonight after Myola Nick led all the way from box two and defeated Mount Gambier representative Mister Banjo and Aston Turbo (Warrnambool).

Bred, owned and trained at Purdeet by Annette Kampman, the son of Aussie Infrared and Pocket Queen had three-quarters of a length to spare over the Tracie Price trained Mister Banjo in a time of 25.30 seconds.

The Border Challenge was first run at Warrnambool in 2019 when won by the host club’s Lektra Fireball, trained by Phil Lenehan.

Then, due to Covid restrictions, it wasn’t until 2022 that Mount Gambier hosted the event at Tara Raceway. This time it was won by Warrnambool’s Max Power, trained at Dennington by Dustin Drew.

This year’s challenge was a case of Myola Nick taking full advantage of a chance run in the final – due to scratchings – after finishing fifth in the Warrnambool heat.

Ironically, with Kampman a regular at the Mount Gambier track, Myola Nick – who won his first race at his first start at Tara Raceway in July – was just one run short of being able to contest the Mount Gambier heats.

Meanwhile, at Tara Raceway’s Christmas Eve meeting on Sunday, Myola Nick’s litter brother, Myola Thunder, led virtually all the way in the Tara Tipsters Stake (400 m) for Kampman when defeating Cadillac Belle by 4 1/2 lengths in 23.25 seconds.
