The Cowra greyhound, from the kennels of Pamela and Paul Braddon, produced a scorching run in his heat on Saturday night at Wentworth Park, sending an ominous warning to rivals.
The registered time of 29.71s was equal second fastest of the night, Brett Bravo’s Striker Light heading into the semi-finals as the quickest qualifier having stopped the clock at 29.67.
Falcon’s Fury ($2.80) launched from box eight as the favourite in heat nine of 10.
He didn’t win the jump but he quickly moved alongside his competition and found the rail at the first bend.
He showed superior speed around the 520m journey, winning by a margin of six-and-a-half lengths from the second placed Srixon ($26).
The run will likely see him popular among punters this Saturday night in the semi-finals.
Victory in the semi-finals would secure Falcon’s Fury a place in the final and shot at the $250,000 top prize.
Falcon’s Fury now sits on the third line of betting to win the series, behind Striker Light and Jason Mackay’s trained Ando’s Mac.
The Golden Easter Egg is a race Cowra has a history of success in.
Rodney McDonald’s Dana Beatrice won the 2009 edition.
