Very well done Peter ..showing us how it is done.

I just woke up over in the states and watched Riot's
Outstanding effort. Envoy surprised me.

I thought Boom would give an honest effort and some
contest points. I thought something different was going
To happen perhaps Terms winning. I lost picking Tears
earlier lost the contest not staying with the champ.

Congrats to our well deserving winner. I think we all
Did the contest namesake proud. Thank you for the opportunity
to compete i had a blast going against such a talented group.

No worries Paul you were the only International we had and a very tough nut to crack, with Greyhound Racing in decline in the US at least you can say you have an interest in the Australian scene. You may read on here a lot of talk of doom in the Industry to a certain degree there is for some but on the other hand the feature races prize money is outstanding and the sport is prospering and will with a couple of new tracks in the pipeline in Brisbane. Kinda Cruel Red I see you own him (still do?) and dogs racing out here his has sired. Cheers BTW stay away from the MSQ in talk section there's a few trouble makers down there particularly Huss Jordan, he wont play the game we play and has his own side going show on our MSQ thread just to annoy The Convener. - Macwollie

It doesn't, it's 24/7 and the dogs and I see the remanent litter on our walks chucked on the ground from the local kids roaming the streets at night after visiting the joint. BTW she doesn't know of the windfall so it's straight into the cunning kick, it might be a bit hard to explain the arrival of a doona cover though. All dog races require Group 1 status Huss apart from the MDC, somehow the Ipswich Cup comes to mind? - Macwollie

Peter

Please donate any of my contest money to a local greyhound adoption agency or however you see fit.

Warren Owen( greyhoundsyndications.com)has informed me- I unable to purchase any % of a greyhound through an Australian syndicate being from the States at this time so no reason to stress over getting the funds to me which I would splurge on a trifecta wager anyway. I enjoyed the friendly banter and the competition.

My good friend and excellent handicapper Barry Baldwin might
like to have a friendly go against you and a punter friend of yours at some point. Barry and I will have to study the replays and charts for quite a spell to have a small chance of respectability against you two.

Not the PAW - Done your $67 to Greyhound Safety Net Doveton Vic will post the Dog your sponsoring for ($50 I asked for Ronnie) and a $17 donation when it comes up on site. Tor send me the $50 thanks - Pete

Edit: All done now Paul, Ronnie will now get a coat, lead and a collar whilst waiting adoption. This is a private registered adoption agency and the lady running it Julie Mathieson since 2000 recently won a GRV Board Welfare Award from Greyhound Racing Victoria on their Greyhound of the Year presentation night.

Hi Pete, I was only thinking about this yesterday. I will donate $100 cash prize again. It would be awesome to get some studmasters on board I wonder if Tony G could get a Magical Bale? That would entice more Ire/Eng participants,all there horses are over here pilfering our prizemoney they might aswell do the same and help remember the great man Bernard.
