83 year old New Zealand Greyhound Hall of Fame conditioner Ray Adcock remains as competitive as ever in the mentoring ranks.
Adcock applied the finishing touches to his short course sprinter Rosa Tee, which saw her taking an absolute flyer from the five trap which set up her effortless victory in Sunday’s Qualified Pet Services Railway Sprint over the 318m dash at Group 1 level.
She was never in any danger when she cruised home to claim her 18.24 by a comfortable three length margin.
It was a pair of lessor favoured sprinters who occupied the minor sides of the podium. Alex Attack delivered the race of his career to claim second for Jaren Udy and Denise Cottam, while the Ron and Nyomi O’Regan prepared Obstinatus wound up in third.
“Once Rosa jumped into the lead she was never going to be headed. She had been building nicely into this final,” commented Adcock.
A couple of favoured sprinters Sheza Rippa and Danny Dee copped some early jostling which terminated any stakes claims either of them held.
