Gorey Guardian - - SPORT - GREY­HOUND RAC­ING

THE GLEN­BRIEN Ken­nels A5 Stake fi­nal was the fea­ture attraction on last Thurs­day night’s card at En­nis­cor­thy Grey­hound Track, spon­sored by Kath­leen Stamp of Glen­brien.

Rogers Girl, owned by Lisa Mur­phy from En­nis­cor­thy, led to the first bend, with the spon­sor’s dog, Glen­brien My­way, in close at­ten­tion off the sec­ond bend be­fore Rogers as­serted to stretch the lead off the last bend.

The un­lucky in run­ning Pit­stop Jet put in a pow­er­ful late run to the line to grab sec­ond spot, only a length and a half be­hind the hat-trick seek­ing win­ner Rogers Girl who made her good break pay in a time of 29.62 -40 slow.

On Mon­day night of last week, the Roban Fi­nan­cial un­raced sec­ond round was com­pleted, and the Sea­mus Whe­lan-owned Pierces­town Mile was an im­pres­sive win­ner of heat one in the fastest time of the sec­ond round.
