The Hunter region and surrounds will be well represented in next week's semi finals of the TAB Million Dollar Chase. One of the hopefuls, the Darryl Thomas trained Xerri stretched his legs in a final hit out at Ladbrokes Gardens today. Going around in a stewards trial, the Blue son of Fernando Bale and Miss All Class ran a fair 5.03 first section, but then really wound up running 17.15 down the back and then home in a very nice 12.10 for an extremely quick overall time of 29.25 sec, just .09 sec outside the track record. With the current career figures of 12 starts for 6 wins and 3 placings, Xerri has run quick times at several tracks including 29.38 at The Gardens, 24.89 at Maitland and 29.62 at Wentworth Park which will hold him in good stead next week. The other Thomas runner in the semi finals is Whitfield, a lightly raced litter brother to Xerri who has won 6 races from only 10 starts. Darryl also trains Sergis from the same litter who has won 4 from 5 starts and did train the ill fated Coniglio who was owned in the same interests as Xerri. Newcastle Greyhounds wishes Darryl and all local trainers involved tomorrow night and next week all the best. ... See MoreSee Less

The Board and staff of Newcastle Greyhounds would like to acknowledge the recent passing of industry stalwart Gerry Lee. Whilst a long time GBOTA member, he was probably best known at The Gardens as "the bagman" for popular bookmaker Graham Walshaw. As a trainer, he was also successful as can be seen below celebrating the win of Lady Cynthia in the Ladbrokes Red Dog final on 2019 Black Top night. Lady Cynthia had 12 starts at The Gardens for 8 wins. To all family and friends of Gerry, we offer our heartfelt condolences. ... See MoreSee Less
