Crashing Packs crashes through to win

The Steve Shinners-trained chaser recorded the biggest win of his career in Mandurah�s biggest greyhound race.

The race was almost an exact duplicate of the previous week�s heat where Crashing Packs held the initial advantage before being challenged late by Star Recall, but was ultimately able to prevail.

Using the rails alley to full benefit, Crashing Packs was able to push up along the fence after a typically sluggish exit out the traps to capture the early lead.

Star Recall powered into contention in the home straight and momentarily took the front.

Crashing Packs was able to surge again and he edged ahead on the line to score by a head in 27.60.

Crashing Packs has now saluted in 18 of 41 starts and has collected nearly $80,000 in stakes.

In other racing, Romeo�s Comet marched to his second win in a row when he captured the A1 Salvage & Hardware Free To All (490m).

The consistent black chaser from Paul Stuart�s kennels rocketed to the lead in the mid-stages of the race and then rolled on to score by nearly five lengths in 27.44.
