Tuiaki Wins 2010 Peter Mosman Classic Beating Cool Scooby & Super Laurie

On Saturday night the Neville Brown-trained Tuiaki scored a nice win in the Group 2 Rapidvite Peter Mosman Classic (520m), taking out the $25,000-to-the-winner prize at Wentworth Park.

Improving sprinter Tuiaki ($7.50) defeated the Tracey Hurst-trained Cool Scooby ($12.50) by 2 ¾ lengths with Super Laurie ($10.40) coming in third the same distance back again.

Four lengths separated all eight runners, with the hot favourite That’s Just Me ($2.20) coming in sixth after failing to make up the ground they lost starting slow from box two.

Eventual runner-up Cool Scooby got away beautifully from box five and went to the lead early, with Tuiaki not far behind also jumping well from box three. But by the turn Tuiaki had been pushed back worse than midfield as Flying Arlie and Super Laurie got up to the front.

As the dogs bunched on the turn That’s Just Me was squeezed in and checked off the back of Tuiaki on the corner, spearing out wide and finding themselves out the back ruining their chances.

Tuiaki, racing close to the rails, was able to get away without the interference causing too much trouble.

Down the back straight Cool Scooby was still in front with Super Laurie chasing. But it was Tuiaki who moved up on the outside to overtake the leaders, racing away to win in an impressive display of determination.

Tuiaki, a son of Premier Fantasy x Shireen’s Habit, has now 13 of his 31 career starts.

The other highlight event over the weekend in the world of greyhound racing was the Group 2 Traralgon Cup Final in Victoria, taken out by Dee Winter.

The next big group greyhound series is the Big Dog Cup at Albion Park, heats for which will be held this Thursday night. Jump online to Ladbrokes.com.au now to get in on the betting action and experience the best the dogs have to offer!
