Harris kennel aims up for Cosmic Cup fight
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.
