The Great Chase Final Field

Wednesday afternoon The Meadows will host the much awaited grand final of the Group 2 The Great Chase.

The 2009 Great Chase series, sponsored by Your Local TAB, has already given away over $27 000 in prize money to 38 community groups.

The groups, which cater for the physically and intellectually disabled, tied to the Great Chase Final winner will receive a further $5000 and 10% of that greyhound’s prize money over the next 12 months. The groups matched to the second and third placegetters on Wednesday will also receive $2000 and $1000 respectively.

Fancied runners include Barnstormer jumping from box five, who will be looking to return to winning form after blitzing the field at Geelong in 25.61 seconds. Our Toyman is another strong contender, having won their last two starts at Geelong in sharp times but must overcome the awkward box eight draw. And consistent runner Arvo’s Florence from box four has talent that should not be underestimated this final.

The $25 000 to-the-winner final is scheduled as race eight on Wednesday afternoon and is due to commence at 2:15pm (VIC time).
