MINGLERS POPEYE ONE TO FOLLOW GOING FORWARD

Barry Drake

Minglers Popeye (Sparta Maestro-Minglers Suarez) confirmed his status as a very promising youngster with another brilliant performance in Waterford on Saturday night.

 Eddie Moore's greyhound beat a strong field to win the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Trial Stake. On just his fourth career outing, the improving May puppy broke best and just made the corner in front. Moving nicely down the back straight, he led the way from Triangle Huge. As they approached the final corner, the leader kicked for home, opening up on the home straight, he pulled further clear. At the line, he had four and a half lengths to spare over Whiteys Geronimo, in a quick, 28.44.

A lovely winning performance from the much-improved youngster.
