IT will be a family affair when Branxton trainer Lindsay Davis aims for a $40,000 windfall in the Distance and Sprint Challenges at Wentworth Park on Saturday night.
Davis has qualified litter sisters Frekey and Lekey for the $20,000-the-winner distance (720m) and sprint (520m) finals respectively on the program, which features the group 1 Peter Mosman Classic.
Richmond Vale trainer Jason Mackay’s Mister Twister, out of box five, was at $4.20 for the $75,000-to-the-winner Peter Mosman with TAB Fixed Odds.
Davis has Frekey from box one and Lekey from six in the features for the best country greyhounds in NSW.
She said it was exciting to have a runner in each race and believed Frekey was the best chance of victory.
”It will be an interesting race but I’m hoping if she can get on the bunny and scoot off, she should be right,” Davis said.
”Lekey doesn’t mind it out a bit wider because her last few runs at Richmond were from the seven and she jumped really nice and got across well. Frekey is probably the best chance but I wouldn’t put it past Lekey. If she gets out, she's really strong.”
Davis also has Keysta, another litter sister by Djays Octane out of Key Exit, is in the last race.
Davis’ partner, Kel Lean, owned and bred former superstar Keybow, which was out of Key Exit.
Also, Harpers Hill trainer Ken Cheetham has Midnite Party from box six and Gardens CEO Gary Brown has Mrs Spring from box eight in the distance final.
