The Border Watch : December 20th 2013
44 GREYHOUND RACING OntheLure with DAVID LEWIS e WHILE there is no official award for the leading local dam, it is worth making mention of the contribution Kirkstall Jane and Senni Wendy have made to greyhound racing at Tara Raceway this year. Kirkstall Jane’s litter by Birthday Boy has won 26 races – with an amazing strike rate of 32pc – for local breederowner-trainer Barry Shepheard. And another breeder-owner-trainer in Andy Graham of Portland has enjoyed tremendous success with Senni Wendy’s litter by Elite State which has produced 24 winners locally and plenty of others elsewhere. Both Kirkstall Jane (Digital x Courtney Sunset) and Senni Wendy (Magnamize x Senni Ace) have representatives in Sunday’s Christmas Cup fi nal in the form of Arbour Molly and Stornaway Lad. The influence of these two dams should continue for some time yet with three seven-month-old Kirkstall Jane pups by Cosmic Rumble running around Shepheard’s Glencoe property while Graham has a Bekim Bale x Senni Wendy litter almost ready to race. But it doesn’t end there with Kirkstall Jane ready to be mated again, this time to Cape Hawke, and Senni Wendy in pup to Spring Gun. Cape Hawke (Where’s Pedro x Viva Odessa) won 17 races from only 31 starts and is a former Sandown Park record holder. Graham had success when mating Senni Wendy with Bombastic Shiraz with one of the offspring racing as PARTY TIME AT TARA: Tracie Price’s Saturday night birthday guests were still in party mode at Tara Raceway on Sunday, especially after the Price trained, Teddy’s Moment was successful. Cee Anna Rose and winning six races (two at The Meadows) from 18 starts for $19,000 in prizemoney. Spring Gun is a son of Bombastic Shiraz so he’s sticking with the line while Cee Anna Rose is also in pup – to leading sire Collision. GOTY anti-climax THE Greyhound-of-the-Year award has more than likely turned out to be something of an anti-climax. Long-time leader, Just Humphrey, despite missing plenty of recent racing due to injury and unable to gain a start at the club’s fi nal two meetings, looks like hanging on to defeat litter sister and kennelmate Azumi Touch by four points. In recent weeks Azumi Touch’s form has tapered off to the extent that she is a reserve on Sunday in the Gambier Vets Mixed Stake (400m). This now means she will have to gain a start and then win in order to fi nish level on 52 points with Just Humphrey. By Cosmic Rumble out of Elite Touch, Just Humphrey and Azumi Touch are raced and trained by husband and wife team Steve and Lee Bartholomew at Worrolong.

And they certainly added to the atmosphere and boosted on-course attendance to one of the best seen for a while. Price played his part too when front runner Teddy’s Moment just held out a fast fi nishing Billy Kahn to win the Laser Electrical Mixed Stake (400m). By Lochinvar Marlow out of Penny La Plume, the black youngster has started his racing career off in fi ne style, having won three 400 metre races from only fi ve starts. Mexican standoff IT’S fair to say that David and Valerie Brodhurst, of Serviceton, have had their patience well and truly tested by Mexican Raider. They picked up the black dog for only $200 prior to racing although there is certainly not much wrong with his breeding, as he is out of Victorian city winner Metamorphosis. But it had been more than four months since Mexican Raider had won his fi rst and only race with not a lot of joy following since. And Valerie Brodhurst had made it quite clear that last Sunday was to be his last chance and he would be advertised for sale the following day if he didn’t perform. Well, the Mexican must have heard her. Jumping from box one in The Border Watch Stake (400m), he was always on the pace and fi nished the race off well to win in 23.62 seconds.
