The Ftiz Sports Bar Canterbury Futurity has been a long established Group 2 520m event on the Christchurch GRC’s annual calendar. The $30,000 stake is a result of a number of progressive payments that breeders/owners provided by them ever since the nominated puppies are weaned from their mums.

Geez, it sure was a riveting meeting held at the Manawatu Raceway on Monday afternoon.  The 410m track record was lowered twice during the meeting, there was a ripper first ever 720m staying event raced, quick 457m times was recorded, while the locally based Lisa Cole kennels provided an astounding 12 winners from the 15 races conducted.

It certainly wasn’t the friendliest of weather conditions when the big evening of heats racing got underway at the Addington Raceway on Thursday. The action on the track certainly was engrossing where three sets of heats held over the entire race program sorted out the qualifiers for next Thursday’s evening of finals racing.

It was a huge 24 hour period for Tirau based conditioner Karen Walsh, along with breeders and owners Gary and Linda Harding. On Friday evening the hugely successful racing operation savoured more Group 1 success with Thrilling Talk who secured his deserved elite title when winning the $30,000 New Zealand Futurity title. The previous day they watched their greyhound Thrilling Amigo shatter the Cambridge 457m track record.

As usual it was a strong support card to the Group 1 chasing action at the Hatrick Raceway on Friday evening. The $30,000 New Zealand Futurity was the key event, however quality racing on the undercard was witnessed in the other 11 races

It’s very pleasing to see seven of the eight greyhounds drawn to race in Friday’s $30,000 New Zealand Futurity (race 10) being New Zealand bred chasers and that factor is a great advertisement for New Zealand breeding.

An interesting set of heats is the best way to describe the four 520m heats that decided the final field for Friday’s running of the $46,000 New Zealand Futurity at the Hatrick Raceway

Expect Tuesday’s running of the $6,500 Invercargill Cup (race 8) to be a keenly contested event. The pair of 457m heats held at Ascot Park two weeks ago saw both heats being won by the barest possible margin. Egomaniacal and Ringside delivered those heat victories.
