The Steve Gammon dog proved the point admirably last Saturday
evening when winning a top grade S1 race over 540 metres at odds of
The dog’s previous two wins were in grades S3 and S2 also at
fair odds of 5-1 and 4-1 respectively. Clearly the local layers
thought that the top-grade race was one step too far, however the
dog’s record shows two runner-up slots before in this grade so that
winning price looked too big on the night.
He is fast approaching his 100th competitive career race but
nonetheless seems as good as ever against the best here.
You can expect a similar price in his next S1 race.
I have been watching with interest the progress of Tarsna Inca
who has that little bit of class. She joined Julie Luckhurst’s
kennels earlier this year having had 23 races in Ireland.
Her Crayford record shows three wins from six starts which is an

The August 2010 daughter of Droopys Vieri made it a winning
debut on Saturday night but the manner of the win will have pleased
Starting her career here in grade A4, she romped to victory in a
time of 23.60 seconds and it looks like grade A3 is well within her
reach. She looks set to follow on in Tuka’s footsteps and I am
confident she will win plenty of races here.
