Local greyhound trainer Jack Trengove etched his name into the record books last weekend with one of his runners breaking a long-standing track record.

Silverband Falls won race four last Saturday with a time of 21.14, breaking the previous record of 21.33. It beat home Box Of Bandaids by over six metres with Sleek Penny coming in third.

It was a great day for Trengove who had three winners in a row with Super Sting in race three and Cazbomb in race two.

Silverband Falls’ win was its eighth in 10 starts in Broken Hill and has another runner up finish to go with that. Despite that great local form, Trengove said that his runner can’t quite find the same success elsewhere.

“He just can’t seem to get going in the city meets,” Trengove said.

“The lure system is different and just seems to put him off while the class of dogs is also a lot higher.

“In Broken Hill, if he misses the start then he’s still quick enough to get back and win but if he misses the start away then the other runners are too classy.”

Silverband Falls will now go into the Ray Robertson Memorial final on October 20.
