Gary Ennis celebrated his first success in the Horsham Cup as his trained speed star Enry Walt captured the cup

Garry Ennis trained, experienced and veteran group entertainer, Enry Walt displayed his marvellous speed while winning the Group 2 Exchange Hotel Horsham Cup on Sunday night.

Stepping out perfectly from box eight, Enry Walt, the seasoned chaser brought into play all his experience and ran down very well in front of the leading Greta Bale who showed a good run at the beginning. But at the end it was the veteran chaser who demonstrated a hard chasing effort to finish it in 27.22 seconds and won by a number of lengths ahead of that greyhound. The express finisher, Allen Elroy was the second best and Greta Bale finished at the third.

After the positioned sprinters the rest of the contenders fell into the following order respectively. There was Hot Grille at the fourth, after that Flash Drive, Malta and Radley Bale and at the last it was Rafferty Flyer.

The chaser’s trainer, Gary Ennis, was fairly convinced that the sprinter’s skill and practice will surely give him an edge in the $28,000, first prize for the winner, final.

“Enry Walt was racing in his 12th final and it certainly gave him an edge in big race experience over the rest of the field. He likes to use a bit of the track and was drawn perfectly in box eight,” Gary Ennis stated for his 2010 Group1 Silver Chief winner.

The victory was the first Group win for the chaser since 2010 when he won the 2010 Silver Chief some 14 months before. Although he has ran in about a dozen group finals but finally this time he succeeded. This was also the maiden success for the trainer, Gary Ennis, at Horsham Cup.

Enry Walt is a black greyhound who was born in January 2008 by the collision of Primo Uno and Awesome Saint (the daughter of Awesome Assassin and little Saint). The dog was bred, trained and is race by the seasoned and expert trainer Gary Ennis at Sandhurst in Victoria. The black chaser has now enjoyed triumph in 15 out of his 46 lifetime starts and has been positioned on 15 events. The total current stake earnings of the chaser are now $179,465 with the help of $28,000 first prize for the winner of Horsham Cup.

Heats for the cup were carried out on last Wednesday night. Three sprinters of Graeme Bate, the Hall of Fame trainer, met the requirements and were eligible for the final. The fastest heat victorious, Radley Bale who snatched the victory in 26.98 seconds was also among these three greyhounds.

Graeme Bate has unforgettable and impressive memories in the Horsham Cup since its inauguration way back in 1978. He has been the triumphant in the cup for eight times including a hat-trick from 1982-84. And the hat-trick sprinters were Satan’s Shroud, Virgo Rose and Propellant respectively. Yet he will have to wait further for his ninth success as his trained greyhound, Allen Elroy could only manage to finish at the second place this time despite of some luminous and brilliant presentation.
