Flash performance in John McDonald Memorial Final

Cowra trainers had a day out at the Cowra Greyhound Club’s Memorial Race day at Sid Kallas Oval on Monday afternoon with Paul and Pamela Braddon dominating on a day dedicated to some of the great’s of the Cowra greyhound industry.

The Braddon kennel took out the feature John McDonald Memorial Final with the promising Metallic Flash which recorded its third win from six starts.

Monday’s first prize purse of $4000 took the dog’s career winnings to $5850 in its short but promising career.

The Braddon kennel provided the quinella in the feature sprint with Borderline taking out second place with Peek’s Gold rounding out the placings.

Metallic Flash led throughout to take the feature in a slick 25.86 for the 453 metre journey with four and quarter lengths to spare from his kennel mate.

Ace McDonald, on behalf of the McDonald family, congratulated the Braddon’s on their success in this year’s feature.

“They’re great supporters of the club,” Mr McDonald said.

Earlier in the day the Braddon kennel was successful in one of the day’s support features with Zeb’s Magic recording its sixth consecutive win, taking out the Kevin Codner Memorial.

Monday afternoon’s win followed hot on the heels of successes at Goulburn and Cowra in the past week for Zeb’s Magic..

Prior to that Zeb’s Magic had recorded wins at Dubbo (twice) and Cowra in recent months.

A bit of a specialist around Cowra over the 327 metres Zeb’s Magic has now recorded eight wins and two seconds from 11 starts over the course on his home track.

“He’s just a good little sprinter,” Paul Braddon said after the win.

“He only wants to go 300 metres, we have nothing special planned for him, we’ll just keep entering him in races,” he added after the dog’s 20th career win.

The Jack Hines Memorial, another of the day’s features, went to the Tat Kyla, jumping from box four, for Grenfell trainer Elizabeth Scott and owner David Warburton.

The final event on the day went to Canowindra trainer David Grant with Slippery Grant racing off with the final of the Ben Core Electrical Dash.

Earlier on the feature race day program Rodney McDonald’s Dana Lodge got the meeting off to a good start for Cowra with Dana Hammy, owned by a syndicate of Cowra Magpie players taking out the second event, a maiden over 327 metres.
