Greyhounds: Jetski powers ahead in sprint trip

BEST performance from a Dumfries and Galloway greyhound at Halcrow Stadium on Friday night came from Jetski.

 

The two-year-old bitch, owned and trained by Stranraer-based former league footballer Buff Douglas, was on fine form on good going at the Gretna track.

She took the lead  at the first bend to storm home in the 280 metres trip in 17.18 seconds, the fastest time of the night.

The Scots greyhound was followed home by Denbie, a two-year-old bitch owned and trained by Cath Lister of Aspatria.

There was also a good run by local North Cumbrian runner Magic Shift.

The three-year-old, owned and trained by Mark Little, crossed the line almost two lengths in front of Pop, owned and trained by Tom Clark of Workington.

The Little kennel entry Magic Pam, a 3/1 shot, came in as runner-up in the final race of the night, over the middle distance.

The winner was the favourite, Smack, from owner-trainer Willie Hyslop at Kilmarnock.
