Pam's Meeka's Joy won race nine, while her bitch Blazing Lisa upset her husband Paul's odds-on favourite Flaming Fury in the 10th.

Flaming Fury ($1.50) wasn't expected to have too much trouble accounting for his opposition but from box 1 he was checked by Fast Eddie Cargo which had box 3 and never recovered while Blazing Lisa enjoyed a trouble free run to record a last bound win over the box 3 dog..

"Probably since I was five or six I remember going away racing with my mum and I have been doing it ever since," Kylie told thedogs.com.au

"I started with a couple of giveaways and had a lot of fun with those, and I have been hooked ever since."
