Fairy­tale be­gin­ning

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

BUND­ABERG Grey­hound Rac­ing Club over­came shock­ing con­di­tions on Satur­day to stage a suc­cess­ful day of rac­ing.

But it was the per­for­mance of Mon­sieur Cam­bla that stole the show.

Lo­cally owned and trained by Louise Cameron, Mon­sieur Cam­bla re­ceived an hor­ren­dous in­jury to his leg just five months ago, which usu­ally would end a grey­hound’s rac­ing ca­reer.

On Satur­day he proved fairy­tale re­turns can stick to the script as he pow­ered home ahead of his ri­vals to win.

There were other great re­sults: a num­ber of train­ers shar­ing wins on the day.

The News Mail 460m fourth-grade race was won by Chasin Rain­bows, owned by Wayne Franklin and trained by Paul Burgess, while Be­ware the Boss was home first in the fastest race of the day, the Best 8 460m.

Be­ware the Boss is owned by the Kuskyey Clan and trained by Ron Brook.

Satur­day, De­cem­ber 20, will be the last meet for 2014.

The fea­ture race on the day is the Christ­mas Cup, which will be run over 550m.

Santa will take time out of his busy sched­ule to visit the grey­hound club to meet the chil­dren and the “big kids” with lolly scram­bles and ham wheels for the spec­ta­tors.

Bund­aberg Grey­hound Rac­ing Club thanked ev­ery­one who en­joyed a day at the dogs this year and said the club was look­ing for­ward to a big­ger and bet­ter year in 2015.
