2010 Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg Shortlist

by Matt on March 13, 2010

The following is an official release from GRNSW containing the shortlist for the 2010 Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg. Please note that we will also update our dedicated 2010 Golden Easter Egg page with this same information. The full release follows.

Australia’s owners and trainers have thrown their support behind the Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg with the final field set to include the cream of greyhound racing talent.

No less than eight Group One winners have been accepted into the heats on Saturday 20 March ensuring an exceptional array of speedsters for the richest free entry race in the world.

The elite field includes 2010’s dual Group One winner Dyna Lachlan, favourite for tonight’s Australian Greyhound of the Year gong Cindeen Shelby, Topgun winner Fedex and National Derby hero Elite Blue Size.

In fact all eight finalists from the recent Group One Australian Cup have pledged their support to the pinnacle of the Australian greyhound racing calendar.

But trying to bring them down will be 2009 champion Dana Beatrice. She and trainer Rod McDonald are attempting to become the first greyhound and trainer to win the Golden Easter Egg twice in its 20 year history.

Dana Beatrice will spearhead the NSW charge along with 2009 Betfair NSW Greyhound of the Year Take The Kitty, smart youngsters Kelly’s Hero, Lochinvar Marlow and Elite Blue Size as well as the exciting Goodesy.

NSW Greyhound Breeders Owners and Trainers’ Association Executive Officer Brenton Scott said the response to the $250,000-to-the-winner event had been overwhelming.

“Just by looking at the top 80 greyhounds for the Macro Meats Golden Easter Egg, you can appreciate that we really can expect the exceptional in this year’s event,” he said.

“The response from all around the country has been phenomenal to the major boost in prizemoney and we expect Australia’s richest race to cement itself as the premier event on not only the Australian calendar, but on the international one too.”
