Mick Curtale had his biggest thrill in the greyhound racing industry on Wednesday night when Tango’s Express took out the Dubbo to Wenty Final (520m) at Wentworth Park.

Twenty-one years since his last entry at the home of racing in NSW, Curtale described the evening as extremely special.

“The last dog I raced in the city was 1995, she came third,” Mick Curtale said.

“This is my biggest thrill as a trainer. The best thing is I got to do it with my brother (Geoff), my best mate. He’s won half a dozen down there but it’s easily my biggest thrill.”

After winning his heat at Dubbo last week, Tango’s Express drew kindly in box three for the $4300 final.

After beating some early traffic, Tango’s Express chased down early leader Queen Taro and won by three-and-a-half lengths.

“My phone rang off the hook all night, you would have thought we’d just won the Golden Easter Egg,” Curtale said.
