Veteran trainer wins Tweed races
KEITH Boan will be barking all the way to the bank this morning after his greyhounds dominated the early races at Border Park Raceway on Saturday.
As soon as the first race jumped it was apparent the veteran trainer had his dogs primed for the month with Culture Shock running home strong ahead of Mooball Sam and Wee Joe.
Boan scored again in the third with a remarkable double as Ivory Spy blitzed home ahead of kennel-mate Super Surfer, with Mukussu Man coming home third.
Boan was unlucky not to hit his hat-trick in the fourth, when Kee edged out his Dufus Bob by half a length.
The remainder of the meet was an open affair, with the spoils shared among many of the local trainers.
Among the winners was Shane Downer’s Pure Sideways in the second while race five went to Lost in Love.
Bearing Bond won the sixth, Trevor Wilson’s Pirate Trick claimed the seventh, Rapid Puzzle won the eighth for Charlie Northfield while the ninth race was taken out by Steal De Bullion.
While the next meet will be held Saturday, Border Park Raceway auditorium will be open tomorrow and Thursday for Melbourne Cup and Oaks Day betting.
