have preferred to have won the game, but
it’s certainly an honour because of all the
great players in the competition.”
Cook also thanked her team and her club

I do it for you guys, and I really appreci-

GREYHOUND racing returned to
Gawler last Tuesday and got under
way with the Open Maiden Stake over
Mahlo Storm got away best from box
six, with the other wide-drawn runners, Oz
Onyx (7) and Long Gully Hills (8), not far
The leader scooted away to a three-length
break, with Long Gully Hills crossing to the
rails and, in the process, chopping off Oz
Mahlo Storm remained unchallenged in
front, winning by nearly two lengths in the
time of 31.21 seconds.
Long Gully Hills finished second for
Angaston’s Paula Hearnden, and Midway
Magic ran on well, out wide, for third spot
for Lewiston’s Des Hockley.
Mahlo Storm is trained by Salisbury’s
Doug Frith, for Melbourne owner John
The win has been a long time coming as
the dog has had 24 previous starts, on many
different tracks and over many distances,
but ran just 10 placings.
‘Barney’, as he is known to his owners,
was unable to run out the 500m races, and
was sent to Frith after he had watched the
dog race in Melbourne.
Under his training it was discovered
Barney had some difficult-to-detect injuries,
which have since been remedied, resulting
in better performances.
Frith has been in the greyhound game
for about 18 years, following on from his
parents’ involvement in the sport, and has
passed the trend onto his son, Phillip, who
was handler on the day.
Doubles at the meet went to Karen Wit-
tholz and John Shanahan.
Wittholz was successful with My Excuse,
which has scored two wins from three starts,
and Tex Walker, a very consistent performer
at the track.
Shanahan has only recently begun racing
in South Australia, but has recorded many
winners, with Just As Fancy and Wheels Of
Fire both scoring on the day.
The racing schedule is now Tuesday af-
ternoons and Sunday twilights, with the
Gawler Greyhound Racing Club welcom-
ing everyone to attend.
Storming to a maiden win
