DARRIMAN greyhound trainer Jenny Gill had the quinella in the 440 metre maiden final in Sale on Sunday night.
Gill’s Desley and Crossfire, and Up The Dale, trained by John Lindrea at Stratford, lead on the final turn, but went wide heading into the home straight.
Desley didn’t go as wide as the other two dogs, which was enough to her victory, a length ahead of Crossfire, with Up The Dale third.
Dogs trained at Denison by Ronald Winter won by heats of the 440m restricted win series. Dr Archer won his heat by four lengths, while Mac Rooster’s victory came a week after winning at the track.
Hot Shaynna, trained by Yvonne Andrews at Kilmany, claimed a third victory from five starts. Hot Shaynna led race three, a 440m grade seven, all the way to win ahead of Queen Kathleen, trained by Dawn Johnston at Boisdale.
Johnston had success later when Bigsy won the race 10 440m grade five by two lengths.
A week after winning in Sale, Victory Chase, trained by Adrian Smit at Longford, never looked beaten in taking out race eight, a 520m mixed grade four and five, by three lengths.
Greyhound racing will continue in Sale on Friday night.
EARN The Answers, trained by Lyn Smith at Nambrok, won the 515m Sale to Sandown final on Saturday night at Sandown Park.
The favourite worked his way to the lead on the back straight on his way to a three-length victory.
In Warragul on Saturday, Shot Fossil won a 460m event for Ray Floyd at Cobains, while Fab Rocket, trained by Jenny Holden at Longford, won a 400m grade five.
