David Braithwaite

MAFFRA greyhound trainer Des Douch began Sunday night’s Sale meeting well, winning two of the first three events.

Tiger Isla took out the race one 440 metre maiden by seven lengths, before Floats Alone kicked away in the straight to win race three, a 440m grade seven, by four lengths.

Sharon-Lee and Jeff Chignell returned to Rosedale with two winners.

Following victory in Sale on Wednesday, William Rose won a 520m mixed grade four and five.

Earlier, Jet Lee Rose won a heat of the 440m series for dogs with three to six wins. Omega Dodge (Barry Harper, Seaspray), Fargo (Emily McMahon, Darriman) and Carrie (Jenny Gill, Darriman) also progressed to this Sunday’s final from this heat.

The other heat was won by Soda Prince, trained by Lyn Smith at Nambrok, with Zipping Sense, trained by Brian Alford at Yarram, and Gill’s Barwidgi joining him in the final.

Rose’s Honey, trained by Carolyn Jones at Rosedale, won a 520m event, two lengths ahead of Total Babe, trained by Leigh Jennings at Maffra.

Flywheel Bella, trained by Sam Bye at Gormandale, avoided trouble behind her to win the 440m free for all, just ahead of Aston Rose, trained by Kerry Houlahan at Lang Lang.

Shaded Disguise, trained by Sam Tyler at Boisdale, won the race 12 440m grade five by seven lengths from Airly Spence, trained by Kym Russell at Sale, and Angel Eyes, trained by Jones.

Go Rogue won a 440m mixed grade six and seven for Alford.

Head On Bonnie, trained by Gavin Kearns at Churchill, won another 520m race by nine lengths, while Lavish Diamond, who won in Sale on Wednesday, took out the race 11 440m grade five for David Kerr at Caldermeade.

The next meeting at Sale will be this Friday night.

KURO Kismet, trained by Matt Clark at Briagolong, finished last in his heat for the group two Geelong Gold Cup on Friday night.

Considered a chance to advance to the final following a win in the Launching Pad at Sandown Park, Kuro Kismit collided with another at the start and couldn’t recover.

The same night at Warragul, Shallot, trained by Kaylah Thorburn at Gormandale, won a 400m maiden, while earlier Finlaystone won a 300m grade five in Healesville for Gary McMillan at Nambrok.

Dr Madison, trained by Bill McMahon at Darriman, won a 515m grade five during the Thursday night metro meeting at Sandown Park.

Five days after winning at The Meadows, Dr Madison took the lead and didn’t look back.

Harper’s Girl, trained by Robert Bean at Tinamba, won a heat of the 515m grade five series, qualifying for Thursday night’s final. The dog led well, but needed to hold off a fast-finishing Aston Nino to win by half a length.

Even Keats, trained by John Boreland at Giffard West, and Stuart Lee Lee Rose, trained by Sharon-Lee Chignell, finished second and third respectively in the 515m Sale To Sandown final.

Chignell’s Annie Rose finished second in another 515m grade five race.

On Sunday at Sandown Park, She Wiggles, trained by Dawn Johnston at Boisdale, brought up a hat-trick of wins in a 715m grade five.
