Lady Toys With Rivals in Victoria Cup

Last Wednesday’s 2015 Cranbourne Cup night provided tremendous excitement for Norma Gost’s Little River kennel as her star stayer Lady Toy took out the $21,000 Murphy’s Trial Track Victoria Cup (699m).

Despite racing against quality opposition and coming from well back in the field, Lady Toy won by a whopping eight lengths, which came as no surprise to handler Jim Psaila.

“She broke the 660m track record at Ballarat last start so I expected her to go pretty well again tonight,” Psaila said.

Lady Toy (Our Toyman – Railway Shiraz) has now had 47 starts for 11 wins, 11 seconds and 11 thirds, while the $15,000 first prize extended her career earnings up to $90,000.

“We breed all of our greyhounds ourselves so any win we have is a tremendous thrill, especially on a major race meeting like Cranbourne Cup night,” Psaila said.

Norma and Jim are renowned for keeping all of their greyhounds as pets once they retire from the racetrack.
