Jumping at $22 from box three in the Metal Worx Maiden Stake over 400 metres, Pin Up Boy found himself well back early before working into second spot behind tearaway first starter Betty’s Moment. The black dog then continued his sustained run, taking over turning for home and holding out Warunda Magic, which was having his fi rst start on the track for leading trainer Kevin Mugavin of Killarney. The win continued the run Fennell has had this year with longshots at Tara Raceway and confi rmed once again that, despite this winner’s name, he is anything but the punters’ pin up boy. “Jack Wilkes and Bob Wilkes have won at around about the $20 mark while prior to that Deanco Lazarus got up at $43 – which apparently is the longest-priced winner ever at this track,” he said. Bred and owned at Penshurst by John Burow, Pin Up Boy went into the race with two well beaten starts to his name although Fennell had been confi dent of an improved showing in Friday’s event. “He’d had a couple of persistent injuries and it had also taken him a while to recover from a bout of kennel cough,” he said. “And while surprised that he won I did think he would run a better race.” Pin Up Boy is by the well bred Bo Frazier (Spiral Nikita x Leprechaun Yap), which won 25 races, out of Hot Venus which Burow raced on 67 occasions for two wins at Mount Gambier. Despite a long-term involvement in greyhound racing, Burow had never landed a double but with Pin Up Boy’s litter sisters – the consistent placegetters Euchre Queen and Fawn Dawn – engaged in race three his prospects didn’t look too bad. Running in The Border Watch Open Maiden Stake (512m) it was Euchre Queen from box two that was always racing on the pace before gaining the upper hand halfway up the home Tuesdays straight to defeat fi rst starter Benara Cosmic in 31.19 seconds. And so it was doubles all round with Burow landing his fi rst, Fennell his fi rst for the year and Hot Venus producing two winners. Burow also has an 18-month-old litter by Dyna Lachlan out of Hot Venus’s litter sister Lady Lithgow which won six races, including one at Tara Raceway. “I was initially training Euchre Queen and Fawn Dawn and brought them over to Tara Raceway in July for their fi rst starts,” Burow said. “But I just had too many dogs and was looking for someone to train this pair.” “Dean had never trained for me before but he said he’d give them a go and the association is working out well.” Burow, of course, is best known for his smart sprinter Spin A Yarn which he rates as one of the best he has had in his involvement in the sport. The litter sister to Rouse Flyer, which is also owned at Penshurst by Jack Casey, has won 11 races and recorded 32 minor placings with one of the highlights of her career being her 23.16 seconds track record for 400 metres at Tara Raceway. “She’s due in season in a couple of months and I’ll be mating her this time around although I’m yet to decide on a sire.” First win for trainer at the ‘friendly’ track FLASH Prestige’s success in the Barry’s Door Services Stake (400m) was a well-deserved win for Lake Bolac trainer Kevin Breen. The black dog was only fairly away from box four but quickly railed up on early leader Iceman Lang to take up a commanding lead mid-race before holding out Billy Kahn in a slogging fi nish. The win was Breen’s first at Tara Raceway after he had gone out of his way to give Flash Prestige every chance. “I made the fi ve-hour round trip and trialled here prior to him having a 400 metre race start about a month ago,” Breen said. “He didn’t have much luck on that occasion when he ran fourth but with two looks at the track he was a different dog today and it was nice to win another race with him following a maiden win $15 includes sauce or toppings Pageant this Saturday and have lunch in the restaurant or new back bar! 78 Commercial Street East, Mount Gambier.

By Dyna Lachlan out of Sandown Park winner Precious Pie, Flash Prestige was purchased as a pup by the syndicate. Breen, who has had an off and on involvement with greyhound racing over a number of years, has been back in the game for about four years. And the past week or so has been quite productive for him with Flash Prestige’s litter sister, Indian Ink, bringing up her fourth win when successful over 450 metres at Warrnambool. “I’d never been to Tara Raceway prior to trialling the dog a few weeks ago,” Breen said. “But it’s a good complex and what I really like about the place is that the people are so friendly.” Something to smile about THE tiny 25 kilogram Shantytown Queen made light work of a heavy track when she led all the way in the South Eastern Hotel Stake (512m). Shantytown Queen’s last win had been at Tara Raceway over 400 metres back in August when Millicent trainer Brian “Smiley” Gordon had made a hero of himself in front of a large contingent of his home town supporters who were on track that day. Owned by Ray Nicholson of Victoria, Shantytown Queen is by Collision out of Just The Spark, a winner of eight races over short courses on Queensland tracks. Despite her breeding, Gordon was confi dent she would run out 512 metres and at her fi rst attempt last month at Tara Raceway she ran home well for third place behind Malseed Magic. However, at her next start she failed to fi re and fi nished well back in the race won by David Best. “I was really disappointed with the run and to be quite honest I didn’t rate her any chance in today’s race,” said Gordon, a two-dog hobby trainer. And even though Shantytown Queen went around virtually friendless at $17.50, any time “Smiley” lands a winner at Tara Raceway it’s a popular result for a popular trainer.
