courtesty of Gulf Greyhound
Our featured greyhound this week would be considered a surprise to some people but Doug’s Freida from Lingle Kennel has run three of the best races in her career defeating some of the fastest greyhounds that Gulf Greyhound Park has to offer over the past two weeks.
This recent win streak began on Thursday night May 20 as Doug’s Freida faced a difficult field composed of top grade winners It’s A Reality, Gable Teresa and Cry Parker. Doug’s Freida does her best running on the lead and on this night, the stars lined up perfectly as Doug’s Freida outran her rivals to the first turn taking a two-length advantage. Doug’s Freida would maintain her advantage crossing under the wire by a final margin of 3 ½ lengths in a time of 30.52 seconds and rewarding the fans with a $40.20 win ticket.
Things would not get any easier for this speedster out of Lonesome Cry – Madam Nifty as Doug’s Freida drew an unfavorable #5 post position on Sunday Matinee May 23. When the starting box opened, Doug’s Freida popped out to the lead like a bullet shot from a pistol quickly establishing a three-length advantage over the field. Doug’s Freida would not relinquish the lead breezing home to a four-length victory in 30.20 seconds.
Finally, on Saturday evening May 29, Doug’s Freida would be wearing the green #4 racing blanket facing another difficult challenge as recent grade AA winner Cry Parker was breaking just to her inside in the #3 post and recent Greyhound of the Week, C Ya Tom Collins, was in the #5 post. Doug’s Freida showed all of her heart and determination in this race by sliding through on the rail to pass race leader Magnolia Dream on the farturn and claim the win by two lengths in 30.16 seconds.
Congratulations to trainer Cherrye Davenport from Lingle Kennel and Doug’s Freida for an outstanding two weeks of racing.
