Gary Johnson slightly hopeful to win Breeders Classic Final with his sprinters Buckle Up Doug and Buckle Up Dozer

Gary Johnson trained Buckle Up Doug and Buckle Up Dozer has qualified for the wealthy and affluent Launceston Veterinary Hospital Breeders Classic Final which is going to be conducted at the Tote Racing Centre on this Monday night. However Gary Johnson admits that the chasers will require luck to succeed in the final.

“My two will probably be the outsiders of the field, it is great that they have made it through, but it is hard to see them winning in such elite company,” he admitted last week.

The first prize for the winner of Breeders Classic Final is $5,000 along with an extra bonus of $4,500 which means that Johnson and his wife Robyn will be able to have an amount of $9,500 if either of their chasers won the race.

“I believe that the very smart chasers Bosco, Miki Moto Mike, and Three Tradies are the top chances in a super field,” Johnson expected.

The very well trained smart chaser, Bosco from Butch Deverell’s Penguin Kennel has already won in the 515 metres distance semi-final 3 at Launceston Greyhound racing Club (LGRC) meeting on last Monday night in a time of 30.03 seconds.

In the Launceston Peugeot Invitation, the winner of Devonport and Australian Cup, St. Pierre greeted the judge by finishing in 30.03 seconds while the embryonic superstar Rybenbrook recorded a blazing victory in 29.69 seconds in the first race of Launceston Mazda Juvenile.

In the meantime, the sky-scraping Damek is aiming to heighten his already inspiring record in the Reg and Aileen Ivory Memorial Classic Final of $6,000 prize money which is going to be conducted on this Tuesday in North West Greyhound Racing Club NWGRC meeting at the Devonport Raceway. This rich event is now a regular feature on the NWGRC calendar.

Peter Phillip trained flying superstar Damek clicked another victory in the first heat at NWGRC meeting on last Tuesday. The sprinter crashed his contenders in a flashy run and finished in a very swift time of 25.36 seconds winning by six lengths. In the second heat, David Crosswell trained I’m A Fencer scored another win in 26.44 seconds by a margin of three lengths. And in the final heat it was Adam’s Daddy who presented a blazing conquest winning by length in 25.77 seconds.

Meanwhile, Posh Larry and Barney’s Beauty won in The Juvenile Graduation Stake and Hankook Tyres Stake for the two veterans of the sport, Larry Tanner and John Cameron respectively. Posh Larry running in his very first start over 580 metres led all the way in most part of the race and made upset win by defeating Chase The Shiraz while the stylish bitch Barney’s Beauty which was raced by Dulverton organization, headed by an ex-footballer Murray Johnson, presented her smart run to win fourth out of her five races.
