Richo’s Choice is the top dog
A FRASER Coast dog left its rivals chasing a shadow at Bundaberg’s Thabeban Racecourse on Saturday.
The scorching performance of Richo’s Choice in the maiden race was the major talking point of the four-race meeting.
In its debut race, the River Heads dog, which is owned and trained by Marie Richards, ran a super quick 26.54sec to win by an impressive seven lengths.
Another dog in stunning form was Unpainted in the feature race.
The unbackable dog from Brisbane put in the run of his life to win the $2500 prize money in the Greyhounds Queensland Young Guns final.
Unpainted, owned by Steven Boody from Churchable, stormed to an eight-and-a-quarter length victory in the final.
“That was an absolute shock,” Bundaberg Greyhound Association president Brian Terry said.
“He had unbackable odds.”
The favourite in the main race, Convincing Talk, started out of the gates and gave up the early lead to Unpainted.
From there the unheralded dog made light work of the opposition, cruising to victory in 26.21 seconds.
Totally Mine and Major Billy Blue ran in second and third, respectively.
