GREYHOUNDS: Border flyer’s new year cheer

Section:  Sport  | Tags: , , ,

BORDER flyer Pop On Tia stormed to an impressive sprint victory at the first greyhound racing meeting of 2017 at Halcrow Stadium, Gretna on Friday night.

The two-year-old bitch, owned and trained by Tina Robinson and Basher Carmichael of Greenmill, Longtown led from the first bend to win by a comfortable 3.5 lengths from Tony Hopper’s four-year-old Workington dog Aguero.

Later, Glasgow-based Papa, a three-year-old dog, took the honours over the same distance, despite the efforts of a strong challenging Macca Tiger, a two-year-old dog from David Bowes’ Cleator Moor kennels.

Finally, over the middle distance, three-year-old front-runner Mollie, entered by Keith Geddes of Dumfries, won by almost four lengths from Colin Jackson’s three-year-old Glasgow dog Yazoo.
