Neville Brown not only trained each "leg'' of a winning trifecta at Dapto on Thursday night but also owns and bred the three 520m placegetters Ay Are Bee, Joy's Fancy and Reincarnate.

Joy's Fancy made the pace but Ay Are Bee swept around her on the back straight and came away for an easy win over his kennelmate while Reincarnate, a litter brother the winner, overcame a terrible getaway to finish third.

Brown loves a bet but said: "I did not have a wager because I felt if I put my money on one of my trio, one of the other pair might knock me out.

"Ay Are Bee is nearly three years old but has been lightly raced due to setbacks.

"He broke in like he was going to be a really good greyhound but injuries have delayed him being able to fulfil his potential.''


THURSDAY's Dapto meeting also featured an unusual winning double recorded by veteran siblings Awesome Danny and Doppler Effect.

Jake White, 22, whose father Wayne trains the duo, said: "We have had quite a few winning doubles but not with old timers like this pair, who were whelped in September, 2013 so are over five years old.

"Awesome Danny has won 22 of 116 starts while Doppler Effect has won 14 from 115 races.

"Awesome Danny has been a terrific little money-spinner because it seems that whenever we are doing it a bit tough he comes through and wins a race for us.

"We also raced their dam, Anything, who won 11 races and was a quick little short course sprinter but could not get any further than 400 metres.

"She has been a good producer and we intend breeding from a litter sister to Awesome Danny and Doppler Effect, who was going to be the best of them all until she broke a leg.''


CASTLEREAGH trainer Michael Galea and two pals from Canberra, Jack Cartwright and Ted Baldry, snapped up a couple of bargains when they bought Mighty Staunch and Mighty Tegan at the Richmond Puppy Auction.

Mighty Staunch, who led throughout at Wentworth Park last Wednesday night and will "back up'' at headquarters this Wednesday, cost $2100.

Mighty Tegan, from the same litter whelped in March, 2015, by Shakey Jakey from Dalta Bale, set the trio back a mere $1200.

"They are from the next litter to Aqua Cheetah who won the 2017 Group 1 Dapto Megastar, but they were cheap because they came up for auction before their more famous half brother had made his mark,'' trainer Michael Galea said.

"At the following auction, after Aqua Cheetah had become a star, Dalta Bale's pups by Fernando Bale sold for $8500 and $9500 so we secured bargains.

"Mighty Tegan is back in work and is much stronger than Mighty Staunch but we plan to breed from her because her dam Dalta Bale has been such a good producer.''

Aqua Cheetah, owned by Wagga breeders Tia and Ian Robertson, won 31 races and over $329,000 in stakes.
