Hot Contender Wins Corporate Challenge Final

Last Sunday night Ipswich held the final of the Corporate Challenge in an intense and exciting night of racing that saw Hot Contender prove to be just that, winning the $5000 to-the-winner prize for his connections.

Winner of heat four the week before, Hot Contender sped down the 520m track in the final in a slick 30.80 seconds.

The Derek Milham-trained dog defeated Mal Dawson’s Gnarley Boy by one-and-a-quarter lengths with King Tristram in third.

The final was contested by only seven dogs, following the scratching of Boreman, Not Today Son and Taraarat.
