GREYHOUNDS: Tony's triple triumph

THERE was a triple triumph for veteran trainer Tony Hopper on firm going at Gretna greyhound racing at the weekend.

The Workington – based handler took the sprint honours with his directly owned three-year-old litter sisters Flaming Rosie and Flaming Bird.

The third Hopper victory was with Oh Gosh, an able two-year-old, trained on behalf of owner Alex McMillan of Port Glasgow.

Both Flaming Rosie and Flaming Bird pushed entries from leading owner-trainer Willie Hyslop of Kilmarnock into runners-up spot.

Meanwhile, border trainer Basher Carmichael savoured success in the 100 metres open dash with 7/4 shot Salt, better known by his track name Snow.

The Longtown handler schools the greyhound for Glasgow-based owner Rick Nelson.
