Greyhounds: Krugerrand in triumphant return to Cannington track

QUALITY chaser Krugerrand made a triumphant return to the track at Cannington last Saturday with a come-from-behind victory in the Box 1 Grade 5 over 520m.

After spending more than eight months on the sidelines Krugerrand was a touch sluggish out the traps but quickly found top gear and pushed through to the front at the business-end to score by one- and-half in 30.16.

It was a good hit-out for the Paul Stuart-trained racedog as he looks to regain top form heading into the Perth Cup series later this month.

Later in the evening Stuart also claimed the NPB Security Grade 5 (520m) with exciting youngster Astrozone.

Astrozone continued the brilliant start to his career with his sixth win in a row via a dominant performance.

The fawn speedster bounced straight to lead and then left his rivals in the dust to cross the finish line nearly six lengths ahead in 30.06.

Astrozone has now raced on 11 occasions since his debut in September last year and he has only lost once.
