Flashing Willow went quickest on the clock in the semi-finals of the Greyhound & Petworld Supersprint at Curraheen Park on Saturday night.
Trained by Pat Buckley for Kenny Glen, the exciting May youngster has now won nine of his 11 career outings. Quickest into stride, the even-money winner quickly moved three or four lengths clear of Ballymac Art. Showing massive pace upfront, Flashing Willow went on to land the spoils, in 17.46, making it five straight wins. Ballymac Art ran a cracker in second, two lengths behind the winner and she was four and a half lengths clear of Fiftycashback.
In the following race, the third and final semi-final, Gizmo Cash impressed when clocking 17.52 for Jamie McGee.
Moonlight Macy set a strong early gallop, but the winner came alongside before the final corner and he powered up the home straight to beat the early leader, by a length and a half, in 17.52. Two and a half lengths back to Ballymac Strings in third place.
In the opening semi-final, Ballymac Miranda scored for owners John Quinn and John Maher.
In the care of Kieran Lynch, the 3-1 shot was in midfield early on before driving a great opening corner to turn second behind Bartlemy Logan. In full flight on the home straight, the winner took up the running and she pulled out all the stops to beat the running on Coolemount Boss, by a length, in 17.96. A length and a half back to Bartlemy Logan in third place.
