Har­ris ken­nel aims up for Cos­mic Cup fight

The Daily Examiner - - SPORT GREYHOUNDS -

GREY­HOUNDS: Eve­lyn and Len Har­ris are the con­sum­mate pro­fes­sion­als of grey­hound rac­ing on the NSW north coast and the power train­ing cou­ple have proven it once again with star pup Cos­mic Bonus book­ing an early berth in the $25,000-to-the-win­ner Char­coal Inn Casino Cup fi­nal this Fri­day.

Cos­mic Bonus, who was a fi­nal­ist in the NSW Sprint Cham­pi­onships last month, cruised to vic­tory in the first heat of the Casino Cup held last week.

While he strug­gled to find space in the early stages thanks to the tough draw in box five, the pup soon fought his way through the field and was a flash of white light­ning as he went on to record a fast 28.11 sec­ond fin­ish across the 484 me­tre jour­ney.

The Har­rises will be search­ing for back-to-back Cups on Fri­day af­ter Black Lee Bonus claimed the rich fi­nal last year.

Black Lee Bonus was also nom­i­nated for this year’s heats but could not match pace with fastest qual­i­fier Snug out of the Dar­ren Rus­sell ken­nel.

Snug claimed the hon­ours in heat three with a blis­ter­ing 27.92 and will loom as Cos­mic Bonus’s big­gest threat in the fi­nal.
