Pin Point Recruitment Festival Finals Night at Newcastle

Live on SIS & Sky Sports 4, Tuesday from 7.30pm

Greyhound of the Year, Farloe Tango, is the star turn at Newcastle Stadium tomorrow as Charlie Lister's superstar canine aims to play the lead supporting role to finals night of the Pin Point Festival, live on SIS/Sky Sports.

The brilliant William Hill St Leger winner runs in the 706m event at 7.34pm on a card which features four valuable finals worth between £1,500 and £3,000, with the Pin Point Recruitment Standard final featuring a clash between Derby contenders Mileheight Alba and Pay Freeze.

The night has been sponsored by local greyhound owner Alan Findlay's Pin Point recruitment and Healthcare company. A passionate north-east greyhound man, he has owned star greyhounds like Mill Pinpoint, who won the All England Cup at Newcastle a few years back, a race widely regarded as the north-east Derby. Farloe Tango was the winner of the Pin Point Recruitment 2013 Stayer of the Year Award at the GBGB Awards in January.

Tuesday is the culmination of a brand new 10-day Pin Point festival of racing with competitions over a variety of distances, and increased prize-money also for local owners and trainers with support for the graded races during the period.
