Scrapi to come out blazing in sprint final

THE second of five big days of racing during the holiday period will be held at Dawson Park on Sunday when Dubbo Greyhound Racing Club hosts a big 10-race TAB program.

The $1000 to the winner Boxing Day Sprint Final (400m) will be the main event on the twilight program, which kicks off at 4.28pm with the Welcome to Dubbo Maiden over the short course 318m trip.

All greyhounds lining up in the Boxing Day Sprint Final qualified in heats at the club's bumper meeting on Wednesday.

Three heats were held with the Greg Ford-trained Scrapi Dappi Moo the fastest qualifier with a strong run of 22.89s from box one.

On Sunday the Trewly Special x Iddy Biddy Moo dog will start from box seven while fellow heat winners Nifty Nellie and Lil Miss Mohawk will come from boxes three and six respectively.

The Jeanette Foley-trained Lil Miss Mohawk had box two in her heat when winning in a time of 23.00s while Nifty Ellie's heat was the slowest of the three qualifiers.

Runners from the Charmaine Roberts kennel are always tough to beat and she will line up Lucy Keeping from box eight in the final.

The blue bitch by Where's Pedro out of Holly's House won over the course and distance in late November before finishing second behind Lil Miss Mohawk in her heat.

Meanwhile, heats of two New Years Gift series will be held over the 516m and the 318m journeys.

Three fields of runners will line up looking for a spot in the 318m final while two heats will be contested over the longer course.

The finals of both events, each worth $1000 to the winner, will be held at the club's next meeting on Thursday, January 3.

Following that, racing will also be held at Dawson Park on Thursday, January 10 and Wednesday, January 16.
