Dan­dalup Bru­tus leads from front

Pinjarra Murray Times - - SPORT -

DAN­DALUP Bru­tus led allthe-way to take out the fi­nal of the Chase (405m) at Greyhounds WA Mandurah on Fri­day.

The handy chaser from Corey White’s ken­nels took ad­van­tage of the rails al­ley to put his nose ahead at box rise be­fore fin­ish­ing strongly to se­cure the sil­ver­ware.

After hold­ing off a chal­lenge from the run­ner-up Is­sue, which nipped at his heels in the early stages, Dan­dalup Bru­tus kicked away in the home straight to win com­fort­ably by four lengths in 22.55.

The re­sult fol­lowed on from Dan­dalup Bru­tus’s im­pres­sive heat vic­tory, which sur­prised even his trainer, when he clocked a per­sonal best time of 22.49 to en­ter the fi­nal as the fastest qual­i­fier.

Dan­dalup Bru­tus is bet­ter known as a 500m dog and even though he had the ben­e­fit of box one in the tro­phy de­cider, White knew his grey­hound needed a good start to cap­i­talise.

“You can’t af­ford to miss it over the 400, they’re all sprint­ers, you have to jump other­wise you’ll get left be­hind,” White said.
