High-class railing lands High Incident finals win
THE Nature Vet Jacaranda maiden final was one of the highlights of racing on Saturday afternoon.
The $2000 first prize along with a free service valued at $2200 to Surf Lorian went to the Brad Northfield-trained High Incident.
Always up close to the lead from box eight, High Incident railed inside the early leader Allegro Storm on the home turn and came away to win by a length and three quarters in 23.58.
The owners of Surf Lorian, Mavis Bellamy and son Peter, are Grafton expats and are proud to be able to be involved in greyhound racing in the city, they are regular visitors at our July Carnival.
A dog that has created a good impression is the Mitch Northfield-trained Go Wild Bean who took out heat of the GBOTA's Bull and Barley over the 480 metre trip.
Not the best to begin from box seven, Go Wild Bean raced around the field to be chasing the early leader Siam Smile to the home turn, where he railed inside that bitch and came away for a convincing win by four and a half lengths in 27.59, considering Go Wild Bean had never been over that distance before it was a good run.
Training honours for the day went to the husband and wife team of Neville and Pauline Robson who had a winning double between them.
Neville started the ball rolling when Just Allegro scored a strong win in the Nature Vet Recovery Paste third and fourth grade over 407 metres.
Just Allegro headed off the leader Kingsbrae Di along the back and went on to win by two and three quarter lengths in 23.22.
Pauline's winner was Highlee, who because of conditions of the race, missed a start in the Bull and Barley, recorded the best time of the day over the 480 metre journey of 27.36 and won by three and a quarter lengths.
This time is just half a length outside the record of Watch The Web of 27.32.
Congratulations must go to Reg Gardoll and his connections with Watch The Web who won the group one Vic Peters Classic at Wentworth Park one Saturday night worth $50,000 to the winner. Reg trains out of Iluka.
Back to the locals the wide running Quiz Kid bought up his twenty first win when he just held on in the top grade Clarence Valley Ramblers Stake over 407 metres.
Quiz Kid trained by Jim Robinson led all the way to score by a neck from Hot Syrup in the best time of the day 23.17.
Allegro Lee trained by Gary Clarke made it two wins on the trot when she used box eight to advantage to sore by nine lengths in 23.43.
Allegro Lee is owned by Neville Robson and was bred by him being by Brett Lee out of Blue Bank, this litter won three races on Saturday the others being Just Allegro and High Lee.
Bob Cooke looks like having another good young dog he produced Alarm Ming to win a maiden by six and a half lengths in 23.39 at the dogs second start.
The other maiden went to the Alan Triggs trained Eva's Pick who finished best down the outside to score by a length and a quarter in 23.84.
