She’s A Pearl becomes the biggest winner in greyhound racing

A slice of history was created at Wentworth Park on Wednesday night with superstar sprinter She’s A Pearl becoming the biggest prize winner in sporting history.

While the winner’s prize of $4,500 was a far cry from the $1 million stock market logins cashed in when he won the Million Dollar Chase in May, it was enough to stretch his betting total to a remarkable 1,367,970. $, surpassing Fanta Bale’s previous benchmark of $1,365,175.

And while Relations reveled in eclipsing the prize world record, it was the authoritative nature of her stinging 29.34 victory that pleased co-trainer Andy Lord the most, reporting that the daughter of Aston Dee Bee was back to its best.

“I knew she was ready for a performance like that,” Lord said.

“It’s only been five weeks since she really found her ropes. She was probably a little over the top for her return to racing last week, but on Wednesday she was perfect.

“She went from the season to the end, and everything was fine, then she injured her hip support, then she got a virus… it all piled up on her with one thing after another.

“I decided to quit completely and start over with her and it’s paying off now. I never doubted that I would bring her back to her best and now we can look forward to a good end to the season until 2022. . »

In view of She’s A Pearl, a place in the $1.65 The Phoenix at The Meadows in December.

Lord has made no secret of his desire to land a spot in the slots race where $1 million awaits winning connections.

“I might consider trying it in Melbourne next week and getting the ball rolling there,” Lord said.

“The Phoenix is ​​definitely on the radar and showing slot holders where they are in form on Wednesday night can only help with that. The Melbourne Cup at Sandown is just over two weeks away – I’ll decide next week if she’ll go there first.
