GREYHOUNDS: Zsa Zsa zooms ahead

SCOTS fancy Zsa Zsa powered home to win by a length in the opening sprint race at Halcrow Greyhound Stadium, Gretna on Friday night.

The three-year-old bitch, owned and trained by veteran border trainer Rob Hyslop, led from the first bend finishing ahead of Magic Shift, a three-year-old bitch from Mark Little of Carlisle.

Later, honours went south of the border when Macca Mini edged ahead in the run-in of a sprint race to win by 1.5 lengths.

The 5/2 shot from the Bowie kennels at Cleator Moor was followed home by Wiggy’s Black, a two-year-old dog from the Wiggins kennel at Kirkbride.

Regular Gretna owner-trainer Dexter Clark had the edge over the same distance with his three-year-old sprint dog Spectre.

He finished 1.25 lengths in front of challenger Flaming Rosie , a two-year-old bitch from Tony Hopper of Maryport.
