GREYHOUNDS

BRIAN Garland had an angel behind a dream on Saturday when the Gunnedah greyhound trainer claimed a quinella in a final on his home track.

Deb’s Dream made up for a sloppy start to come screaming home in the 347m Yagoona Supporters Final with kennel mate Bindigo Angel finishing strongly for second after both Garland dogs took out their respective heats last week.

Kevin Sills’ Springsteen finished a close third, although the placings were five lengths off the lead after Deb’s Dream turned it up at the top of the straight before streaking away.

The win makes it three firsts, two second and a third from her last six starts, as the three year old flew to her fifth career victory, shattering the 20 second mark along the way to record a time of 19.75 seconds.

For the younger Bindigo Angel the seond place makes it a first and two seconds from her last three starts, bouncing back from a seventh and two eights in June and July.

“I am very happy with that,” Garland said.

“I wasn’t expecting it but I was hoping for it.”

“They had a pretty strong race going.”

Deb’s Dream is normally a solid starter, although after drawing box five and missing the jump Garland thought it was over. “She hasn’t missed a start for 10 races straight until today,” Garland said.

“I was hoping for one, two or three because she likes the inside.”

Despite that her last two wins have come from the outside last week and the middle five box on Saturday, and it has Garland thinking there could be more in the tank.

“We will come back next week and see where they put them both,” Garland said.

“After that Deb’s Dream will have a spell because she has a few niggles.”

“Then we will be back to see what she can do.”

Earlier Greta trainer Bradley Sabotic began to emulate what Garland had already done, taking out both heats of the Ladbrokes Stakes with full sisters Midnight Mytic and Midnight Panda.

Sabotic will return to Gunnedah this Saturday to try and take the one two as well.

Bushfires get early jump on season

AFTER an abrupt start to the bushfire season on Saturday, hundreds of fire personnel took advantage of a break in the windy conditions on Sunday.

With temperatures in the 30s and strong winds expected over the new few days, the Tasmania Fire Service are preparing for what is shaping up to be a busy week.

Crews were kept busy throughout Sunday with bushfires burning at Orford, Osterley and Glenfern.

The Tasmania Fire Service is now attempting to organise a taskforce from the North-West to assist Southern crews during the first half of the week.

Acting deputy regional chief Mark Klop said that the main concern for crews was the fire at Orford which was first reported at midday on Saturday.

“The biggest one that we’re keeping an eye on at the moment is the Brockley Road fire at Orford, where the fire is located it may have an impact on the highway,” Mr Klop said.

“With the reduction of the wind, we’ve been able to utilise helicopters in areas we weren’t able to utilise [on Saturday] and also we’ve been able to get fire crews in.

Mr Klop said that by Tuesday, severe fire conditions would have taken effect in the state.

“There are very high fire danger ratings on Tuesday and similar wind conditions to Saturday,” he said.

“Some of the fires do have potential to increase in size over the next 24 hours.”

He said people should not carry out any personal burn-offs until Wednesday.

Mr Klop said that unless Tasmania saw some late spring rain, the state could expect to see a drier than average summer.

Red flag raised over new planning scheme

A “DISAPPOINTED” Local Government Association of Tasmania will lobby against the state government’s newly proposed planning legislation.

Planning Minister Peter Gutwein tabled new framework legislation for a statewide planning scheme late last month, which he says will raise planning consistency from 15 to 80 per cent between Tasmania’s 29 councils.

The proposal, while strongly supported by industry and developer groups, has been received with hesitancy from the Greens and the Tasmanian Conservation Trust.

LGAT has since added its name to those with concerns, voicing opposition against a reduction in development application and assessment timeframes.

LGAT acting president and Circular Head mayor Daryl Quilliam said the association’s view had been ignored by the state government.

“We are extremely disappointed that the government did not respond to our concerns regarding the reduction of assessment timeframes for permitted development applications,” Cr Quilliam said.

“[They have] tabled an amendment to reduce the timeframe from 28 to 21 days, we will be lobbying against this.”

He said the 28-day assessment allowed planning authorities to work with developers to address problems or deficiencies in applications, without having to issue a formal information request.

“Assessment timeframes in Tasmania are already significantly less than other states, and were recently reduced from 42 days to 28 days,” Cr Quilliam said.

“The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is not yet widely understood and local government strongly feels there is a high risk in reducing timeframes before a new systems is implemented and tested.”

Although the scheme’s implementation has been heralded as a conduit for fast-tracked development approvals, Cr Quilliam said the association believed there was no evidence to support this.

“The Tasmanian planning scheme will identify more permitted pathways and introduce more consistency, but the process requirements remain the same,” he said.

“In itself, it does not make things faster, nor necessarily simpler.

“The local government sector looks forward to broader consultation on the detail of the Tasmanian planning scheme.”

Taking a shine to flash cars

ROCK & RODZ is all about wide, chromed wheels and big American cars for Perth’s Nathaniel Riley-Coleman.

The four-year-old was on Sunday in his element among hundreds of hot rods, motorcycles and classic cars.

But he was faced with a tough decision when asked to choose his favourite vehicle, unable to separate a jet black Pontiac Firebird and bright red Pontiac GTO.

Rock & Rodz organising committee secretary Wendy O’Keefe said that the annual Camp Quality fundraiser had maintained its perfect record of sunny weather for its seventh event.

‘‘We’ve had it pour with rain coming up to Rock & Rodz and the ground’s been mud on the Saturday, but the weather has always been perfect on the day, without fail,’’ a delighted Mrs O’Keefe said.

‘‘It’s always really popular and this year’s been no exception, with a bumper crowd packing in for what is the first big car show of the year.

‘‘Raising money for Camp Quality is a good reason to get that car polished up and out there.

‘‘There was a special treat for the blokes this year, with former NASCAR racer Allan Rourk interviewing dry salt lake racing legends Rod Hadfield, the first driver in Australia to exceed 200mph (320kmh), and Norm Hardinge.’’

But while some people came for the vehicles, many others dressed up in their glad rags and headed for the dance floor, with rock ‘n’ roll music and performance courtesy of bands like Crazy Flatz, Yesterday’s Gentlemen, Skooterz, Miss Kitty’s Meow and Louis King and the Sun Kings.

Mrs O’Keefe estimated the crowd at a bit more than 2000.

SUE GRILLS and the Tamworth Jockey Club were surprise winners when the NSW Country and Provincial Racing Awards were handed out at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney on Friday night.

While the Tamworth Jockey Club, which is having a $2million upgrade to its tracks, won the Country TAB Race Club of the Year, Sue Grills won her first Country Trainer of the Year.

She was one of four nominees for the trainer award and thought either Greg Bennett, Matthew Dunn or Neil Godbolt would win it.

“It was a shock,” Grills told The Leader Saturday morning.

“A pleasant surprise. I thought one of the other three male finalists would win it.”

The award capped a big season for her where she finished a win behind Paul Perry in the Hunter and North West Racing Association premiership. “It was my best season,” she said of a year where she trained 40winners.

“Paul Perry beat me by one but I couldn’t get a winner the last month or so.”

While she had just one runner at Bundarra on Saturday (Seektowin) her next meeting is at Gunnedah this Saturday.

“It’s going to be a big day,” she said.

“Sophie (stable apprentice Sophie Young) is getting married Saturday too.

“Then we have the Coonamble Cup on Sunday and Armidale on Monday. I told Sophie she couldn’t have picked a busier weekend,” she joked. Seektowin won at Bundarra for Grills and Young, claiming the Bundarra Sport & Recreation Club Maiden Handicap (1300m).

Grills was also delighted for the Tamworth Jockey Club too.

“That was a big shock too but good for them,” she said of a club which has transferred seven of its meetings to Scone and Armidale while the major upgrading to its tracks continue.

The TJC will run its annual Melbourne Cup meeting, sponsored by Single Builders, on Tuesday, November 3 on its B Grass but hopes to resume racing on its main track when all the upgrading is finished by the end of March.
