She's a Pearl took a giant stride towards becoming greyhound racing’s first $2m earner after drawing box one for next Saturday night’s The Phoenix.
The Jodie Lord-trained Million Dollar Chase winner is already the sport’s highest ever stakes earner and after drawing the coveted rails alley the daughter of Aston Dee Bee has rocketed to favouritism for the $1m-to-the-winner showpiece. And while the box draw mapped out perfectly for She’s A Pearl the same can’t be said for defending champion Wow She’s Fast which will exit box six for her The Phoenix defence.
Amron Boy, fresh off Saturday night’s spectacular victory in the Group 1 Silver Chief, will exit box four in
The Phoenix while Plaintiff, representing slot holder Neds for trainer Jason Thompson, has drawn box five.
Paddy Wants Pats was the second greyhound drawn out and not surprisingly connections selected box two while fellow Melbourne Cup finalist El Dorado has drawn directly outside him in three.
Million Dollar Chase hero McInerney, one of three million dollar winners in the race along with She’s A Pearl and Wow She’s Fast, has drawn box eight for trainer Brandan Pursell, while Queensland representative Tyanna Belle has the job ahead from box seven.
TAB Fixed odds have installed She’s A Pearl at $3 for her The Phoenix quest ahead of Amron Boy at $3.50. Wow She’s Fast is at $4.40 while Paddy Wants Pats is at $6 just ahead of Plaintiff at $7.
