Zambora Brockie has claimed the Group 1 Ladbrokes Vic Peters Classic (520m) at Wentworth Park (October 31) in emphatic style.
Winning by 4 3/4 lengths in a best of the night time of 29.58, Zambora Brockie beat home a strong field which included runners up Black Bear Lee and Blazin' Bomber.
Jumping smartly from box eight, the son of Nitro Burst x Flying Liddy clocked a first sectional of 5.38, and he was never headed in the run, turning out a back section of 17.86 on the way to the winning post.
It was a big night for trainer Anthony Azzopardi who also prepared winners Myrniong Plow (30.06), Uno Suzie (30.02) and Kevin In Bangkok (30.22) on the 11 race card.
Speaking after the $75,000 to the winner Group 1 victory, Azzopardi said he was thrilled for owner Charlie Azzopardi who was a long time supporter of the industry.
"I'm just so wrapped for everyone involved, the dog went enormous tonight and it is a credit to the owner Charlie and his family and everyone at my place who work so hard,"
"A trip to Melbourne is on the cards with Zambora Brockie and if he can repeat tonight's efforts he will go well," Azzopardi said.
Azzopardi also took the time to thank race sponsors Ladbrokes
"Ladbrokes have been such a great supporter of greyhound racing, I know how much they work with the GBOTA and it is just so great to see their support in events like this as well as great initiatives such as the Ladbrokes Monthly Medals," Azzopardi added.
Wentworth Park will return to Group racing on Saturday, November 28 with heats of the Group 3 Summer Cup over 720m. The NSW GBOTA wishes all runners the best in the forth coming Sandown features, especially those from NSW.
