A great night’s racing tonight at the Meadows, with the heats for the time honoured Group One Maturity Classic and the locals have several good chances going around.
Tonight some will be trained, some owned and some bred in the region, which really highlights the strength in greyhound racing within the area.
Kevin Eyles continued his great run of late with a nice double at Shepparton on Monday, where Eyles surprised a few punters when he produced Bad Baloney to win the opening race of the night.
The surprise was that his well-known Kraken prefix was not used and it was wife Helen’s cheering that made most people aware it was another Eyles team win.
Hopefully last week we steered followers in the right direction with the locals winning nine of the 12 races and this week should continue on a similar vein with many of the region’s trainers knocking up winning races of late all across the state.
The prestigious CKH Painting Shepparton Gold Cup is not far away with the final on July 29, the change in dates will certainly bring the best greyhounds in Australia here.
The change of dates means the club will not have children’s entertainment outside due to the weather, but will certainly look after patrons with some great dining packages available in the Racers Function Centre.
When the weather is better, the club is planning several children’s days with free entertainment.
