Not sure what you mean?. Your last sentence makes no sense.

Won by 32 lengths wow a freak of a dog 

I am fairly sure I heard 32 lengths referred to as well, Jason,  but the official margin is actually 23 and a half lengths.

I doubt that the difference would concern RTB very much. 

We often talk about second-phase acceleration when discussing greyhounds but this chappie has the best third-phase speed that I have seen.

Maybe Jason T transposed his 3 & 2's:lol:

Terrific call too Jason. The time was correct and the winning margin in time was 1.74 seconds - I don't think I've ever seen a dog win by so far! I notice Forbury have no sectionals there- have they ever done them or is there any reason why they don't do?

I would suspect cost NeilD as getting timing gear wouldnt be cheap would it?

Hi Neil. Out of curiosity, what was his time over the 310? Be interesting to compare to other sprints on the day.  I can remember swift fantasy trailing 17.40s I think from memory at addington by herself. 

 

Regards

Good question Sheepy.

RTB ran 18.36 and Puma Pants  18.48 ( checked correct). I did their opening sectionals as well out of interest. RTB out in 6.90 and PP in 6.79, so run homes were RTB 11.46 and PP 11.69.

Jason - I'm working on that.
