Condong dog chases repeat
AFTER breaking through for a long overdue win last weekend, Go Wild Lady will be looking for a repeat performance when she lines up in the Best Eight (420m), race eight, at Border Park Raceway today.
Trained at Condong by Ron McCalman, the 38-month-old bitch has easily the best PB of the field. Go Wild Lady clocked a best of 23.27sec on the Tweed track last October.
Last week's win took Go Wild Lady's career record for the distance at Border Park to 7-4-3 from 17 starts.
Her win by a neck over Magic Icon in a very sedate 24.14sec sets up an enthralling battle with the two again going head-to-head today. Go Wild Lady will start from the six box and Magic Icon in seven.
Magic Icon, a 34-month-old dog, trained at Dulguigan by Glenda Dart is yet to finish out of a place over this distance with three wins, a second and a third from five starts and a best time of 23.79sec.
His most recent win was two starts back with a 4-1/4-length win over Faithful Queen.
For an each-way interest, keep a check on No.1 Cooladine Cross, trained at Lismore by Bob Thompson.
First race on this today's nine-event program gets underway at 1.45pm (NSW).
