Lower Grade 520m Races Manukau

7 posts in this topic

Good to see some lower grade races over 520m at Manukau last Sunday, good race between Princes Alea and Gee Thunder with Gee Thunder just getting the better of Princess Alea.

A lot better viewing than the 318m smash and bash at the first turn, a progressive Club would figure out how to accomodate a 400m race which would suit dogs which are not suited to the Manukau 318m races and who do not have the stamina for the 520m. Food for thought in the future of racing at Manukau Greyhounds.

In thoroughbred racing they have 1000m through to 3200m, and the harness racing they go from 1600m through to 3200m, not all dogs are suited to 318m ?

Good to see you still following the hounds Jimmy. It would not be hard to offer extra options but the liklehood is that you would get insufficent niminations for each. Hard enough to fill the fields now with the exceptions of lower class.

Stick with the rats and mice eh, don't try and improve the quality of racing in Auckland, good thinking ?

Didn't say all was well Jimmy or not to try improving it. My opinion is just that offering more distance variations is not likely to work.
