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.
