Last Thursday night at Limerick Greyhound Stadium proved to a great evening for some of the magnificent women associated with Local Greyhound Racing over the last few decades.

First up to record a treble was Mary Crotty from O’Briensbridge, Mary is well known for her Inislosky Prefix – and Inislosky Jasper and Romeo won their respective races last night in 29.54 & 29.35, and the treble was completed with Raramanda in 29.60 who Mary trains.

Cooraclare’s Anne Carey is also considered a remarkable lady of the greyhound fraternity. She recorded a double on the with her kennel charges – Gower Pam and Gower Jet – Pam a daughter of Droopys Roddick and Clounanna Pam landed her fifth career win in 29.57 and Jet a son of Droopys Jet and Cloon Glory recorded career win number 14 in 29.70.

Mine Robin recorded her tenth career win for Mary Browne from Quin, this daughter of Velvet John Joe and Sawdust Café stopped the clock in 29.29.

The opening round heats of the Greyhound & Petworld Golden Muzzle A1 550 featured on last Saturdays night’s Limerick card. Loxley is never too far away from victory when lining out at Limerick and Sean Stack of Sixmilebridge’s runner recorded his thirteenth win in heat three. Loxley is much better when drawn away from the fence and he broke swiftly from trap four to sit a narrow second in behind Second Captain who dictated the pace. However, quickly taking control entering the back straight, Loxley showed brilliant determination and the son of Laughil Blake and Rallying Way kept on well to cross the line with one length in hand over Second Captain in second. The time was 30.10 as Darrig Mia claimed third.

Speedie Syd is a greyhound whose stock continues to rise and Padraig Fannin of Ennis’ runner made it three wins on the spin in the final heat of the night. Running from trap four, Speedie Syd showed a nice turn of early gear to take charge rounding the opening corner. Holding a one length lead into the back, the son of Droopys Sydney and Urban Time maintained a powerful skip throughout and despite the best intentions of the fast finishing Grouchos Cain in second,

There was also racing on Thursday night last at Galway Greyhound Stadium. Sues Posh a son of Cable bay and Millbank Posh landed his fourth career success for Tubber’s Johnny Burke in 29.51 and there was further success for Stephen Murray when Arrowhead duly obliged in 28.86, Stephen who was Galway’s leading trainer in 2021 is well on course for that accolade again if his recent form continues – Arrowhead, a son of Pat C Sabbath and Krystalise is owned by Kevin Ryan.

The Shane Counihan owned Tradesman bounced right back to his very best form in the A3 graded eighth contest as he made all the running to defeat Pats Best Girl by two and three quarter lengths at the line in 29.08 . The Declan McDonagh of Liscannor trained son of Droopys Jet & Beeves Rock was very smartly into his stride and rounding the opening bend he led Pats Best Girl and Erril Star by two lengths . Racing down the back Tradesman set sail for home and at halfway led by over four lengths and although Pats Best Girl always gave chase the result was never really in any doubt from the halfway mark

The outcome of the A2 graded seventh contest was decided at the penultimate bend as the Kieron and Bridget Nugent owned Dynamic Diva swept right round the outside of the entire field to win going away by three and a half lengths in 29.50. Racing towards the opening bend Marlay Star led from Bumblebee Seamus with Blue Puma in third place rounding the second bend. Racing towards the third bend the field began to tighten up and here the winner settled the outcome in a matter of strides as the inside runners crowded leaving Dynamic Diva to race clear.
