GREYHOUNDS: Dream debut for Ruth's Baby

THERE was sprint success for border track newcomer Ruth's Baby at Gretna greyhound racing on Friday night.

The experienced three-year-old dog is owned and trained by Dave and Ruth Crosbie of Wamphray, near Moffat.

She pulled away from the pack to win comfortably as 2/1 shot by 2.75 lengths.

Next home was 5/2 bet Diamond Rosie from Tony Hopper’s West Cumbrian kennels.

Later, over the same distance, Scots two-year-old Miss Dee turned in a powerful performance in the fastest time of the night 17.03 seconds.

The two-year-old bitch, owned and trained by Davie Dunbar of Auchinleck, stormed ahead to win by 5.75 lengths.

Next home was West Cumbrian-based Clifton Lodge.

Finally, racing fans can check on recent form by going online to the DnG24 Gretna racing archive at www.dng24.co.uk/?s=greyhounds
