After a string of minor placings, Fancy Georgie was finally able to put it all together to win at Wagga on Friday night.
Proving she can be the top dog on her day, Fancy Georgie broke through for first first win at start eight to take out the Thanks The Daily Advertiser Maiden (400m) for Wagga trainer Kevin Oakman.
Fancy Georgie had been placed in her last three starts, and five overall, but was able to lead all the way .
Jumping well from box two, Fancy Georgie ($3.20 fav) was well clear of her rivals, before holding off the fast-finishing Jamaica Miss ($4) to win by three lengths.
Oakman was pleased she was able to get the monkey off her back.
“It will give her a bit of confidence,” Oakman said.
“She wants a little further too.
“I have been running her over too short but I think she will come good.”
Oakman said being able to get a position on the inside rail helped her cause.
“That is all she wanted, the inside running.”
On the night where the Wagga Greyhound Club paid tribute to some of its biggest supporters surrounding the greyhound ban, Cowra trainer Rodney MacDonald claimed back-to-back successes with Dana Bella and Dana Makin both enjoying success.
