DUBBO trainer Robert Hatton will be content to take Mann She’s Fast through her grades quietly, despite the bitch winning her fourth race from five starts at Dawson park yesterday.
Mann She’s Fast recorded a time of 18.46s when she took out a heat of the Gilgandra Poultry 03 Wins Series (318m), beating Supreme Sprite and Little State in what turned into a one-dog affair.
From box three the Messi x My My Machine bitch was able to find the front early, going through the first section in 4.88s.
While her opposition were able to keep up through the middle stages Mann She’s Fast ($1.70 fav) pulled out too much in the run to the line to win by four-and-a-quarter lengths.
The win wasn’t quite as impressive as the 18.29s the bitch ran at Dawson Park back on June 12 but it was a confidence booster for both dog and trainer after a failure at Bathurst on July 7.
“She was a bit slow that day and she got more checks than a bank teller during the run,” Hatton said of the Bathurst run.
“The book shows she ran last but she just had no luck so it was good to see her come out today and jump well and win.
“My son Glenn bought her from Western Australia and we’ll just take her through her grades and see where she ends up.
“I think a track like Maitland might really suit her because it has a longer straight so we might look to try and find a race there shortly.
“Eventually I’d say she will get out to 500m because she’s always strong through the line at these trips and when she leads the others don’t make up any ground on her.”
Hatton has recently taken to training after earlier spending time as a horse trainer and he currently has two dogs in work.
He mixes the greyhounds with his job and admits he’s hopeful of building his team up over time.
“It’s all a learning curve for me at the moment because I combine it with my work building water tanks,” he said.
“I’m only working with a couple of dogs at the moment, but this girl is going well and I took Santorini Blue to Wentworth Park and he got pipped for third, and then he cut his toe.”
Dubbo Greyhound Racing Club’s next meeting will be held next Thursday, July 31, with the feature being the Dubbo Mayor’s Cup.
