GREYHOUNDS: Jetski powers to sprint victory

LONGTOWN fancy Jetski maintained an early lead to win a sprint race at Gretna greyhound racing on Friday night.

The two-year-old bitch, owned and trained by Tina Robinson and Basher Carmichael at their Millhill kennels, led from the first bend to win by 1.75 lengths.

Runner-up was 2/1 shot Fanta from Kelvin Brown of Wishaw, Lanarkshire.

Gretna regular Mark Little took the honours in the opening sprint trip with his three-year-old bitch Magic Hanna.

She edged ahead early to finish a length ahead of challenger Horny Babe, a four-year-old bitch owned and trained by Dexter Clark at Kirkbride.

Mark Little made it a winning double in the final middle distance race when his three-year-old entry Magic Amy powered to an impressive five lengths victory.

She was chased home by Abbeytown trainer David Studholme’s three-year-old Star.

Finally, there was a dead heat in the 9.15pm 470 metres race between Frannie Hill’s Hawick-based 3/1 shot Magic Dream and the West Cumbrian entry Tatty Scone.
