GREYHOUND RACING: Westmead Adonis is number one attraction in Produce Stakes
5:50am Friday 13th July 2012 in Sport
THE two-year-old British Bred Produce Stakes enters the second round stage at the Abbey Stadium tonight.
Worth £15,000 to the winner, the competition is in its 66th year, and has once again provided some top-class racing.
Westmead Adonis, trained by British breeding legend Nick Savva, is the top name on the card on Friday.
Adonis is a greyhound derby finalist and has competed at the top level all his career. He is currently unbeaten in two races at Swindon, and has posted a trial time of 28.28, which is only eight hundredths of a second off the track record.
Another of the favourites is Andy Clarke's Johnny Kwango. Unraced coming into the competition, Kwango posted the best time of the first round.
There are several local greyhounds running, with the best hopes being Brizzle Blue and Gemstone Jack.
Trained by Alan McDowell and Kevin Hutton respectively, Blue and Jack both won their heats in good times.
The competition takes place alongside four other graded races for local greyhounds.
Gates open at 7pm with the first race due off at 8pm. The six heats of the Produce Stakes kick off at 8.30pm.
