William Hill Greyhound Derby - Wimbledon 480m (£250,000)

For the first time in the 2015 William Hill Greyhound Derby all the runners competed on the same card on what turned out to be a pulsating third-round. 48 greyhounds set out with one clear objective to qualify and keep alive their Derby dream and a chance to win that massive first prize of £250,000.

 

Eight amazing heats delivered some of the most exciting racing we have seen on these shores. Greyhound fans enjoyed a mixed night of emotions that saw some big names bow out; Newinn Yolo, Quietly, Riverside Pat, Badmoonrising, Coolavanny Jap, Swift Keith, Leamaneigh Turbo and Droopys Ward are just some of the big names whose Derby dream is over for another year.

 

In stark contrast connection of Geelo Vegas (28.36), Teds Last (28.30), Evanta Evita (28.38), Lenson Sanchez (28.12), Farloe Blitz (28.36), Millwards Davy (28.25), Rio Quattro (28.67) and Jaytee Jet (28.27) all saw their charges sparkle by taking their respective third-round heats.

 

It's not just about winning your heats in the Derby, it really is all about qualification. Last year Salad Dodger did not win a single round of the Derby but come the final he shined brightest of all. Some big names kept their Derby dream alive by qualifying; Droopys Nidge fluffed his start but he showed plenty of guts to qualify in third behind Teds Last. Track-record holder Eden The Kid recovered from being bumped at the start to scrape through in third behind the impressive Farloe Blitz. Viking Jack had been flying in the Derby but showed he possesses great battling qualities by taking third behind Jaytee Jet. 

 

The Derby excitement now increases and the stars are back on show on Tuesday in the Quarter-Finals trying to make it to the last 12.
