LIGHTLY raced youngster Recall enhanced his growing reputation with an upset performance in the Custom Resources & Recruitment Breeders Classic Final (452m) at Devonport on Tuesday afternoon.
Victory in the prestigious event for Tasmanian bred greyhounds provided Brighton breeder/trainer Jack Jury with a deserved feature race victory.
“I’m just over the moon, it was a brilliant win – couldn’t be happier,” said an elated Jack Jury following the race.
“I was concerned that Recall went into the Breeders underdone experience wise but each run he just keeps getting better. It was a massive step up in class but he handled it superbly. He’s a good dog.”
Going into the race, Recall, a son of US sire Superior Product and Princess Roman, impressed on-lookers in his qualifying heat win before stepping out for his race debut when finishing second behind Vintage Fame in his semi-final.
Facing a red hot field in the final, Recall was installed a $31 chance for the $5,050 decider, with litter-brothers Highland Chief and Wynburn Sheean going into the race joint favourites.
In an action packed race, Recall began on terms with the fast-paced Highland Chief at the start, before powering away and kicking clear from his rivals to score by three lengths in 25.65.
Highland Chief finished second while Wynburn Sheean wound up third.
“It was my first Breeders Classic Final as a trainer – I was rapped making the semi’s so to take out the final is something special,” Jury said.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the dog – he’s got a bright future.”
Jack along with wife Sherilyn already plan to use Superior Product for their next broodbitch.
Superior Product (Kc and All – USS Memory) was a terrific performer on the track in America winning 50 of his 82 starts including feature classic wins in the Dubuque Inaugural and King & Queen Stakes.
