Greyhound in the wilderness

One gets a quizzical look when Canadians hear of the bus journeys you've taken from Thunder Bay to Niagara Falls and from London, Ontario, to Toronto before overnight rides to Ottawa and Montreal.

Water, water everywhere

Niagara Falls are two massive waterfalls on the Niagara River in North America. One waterfall is in the US and the other is just over the border in Canada. The Canadian Horseshoe falls are 54 metres high and water plummets down the American Falls from a height of 56 metres. Seventy-five thousand gallons of water flow over the falls and drop into the river below every second.

Niagara Falls worth taking a plunge on

BOTTOMWEIGHT Niagara Falls has no record on equitrack but he could be worth taking a chance with in the first leg of the Double Trio at Happy Valley tomorrow night.

French rider Eric Saint-Martin finished second on the Alex Wong Yu-on galloper last time out over 1,650 metres on the Valley turf, beaten a short head by Exporter whose overall form is good.

Ho lays down law on Highway Patrol

VETERAN handicapper Highway Patrol (14-1) came good for the first time in almost four years with a grinding success in yesterday's second event.

The Chris Cheung Ting-pong trained 10-year-old battled to the line under Johnny K. S. Ho to hold the fast-finishing Po On King by half a length.

Take the plunge on Niagara Falls

VISITING riding star Alan Munro looks set for another equitrack success when he partners Niagara Falls (Nap) in tonight's opening Class Six event on the Happy Valley dirt.

They say keep yourself in the best company and your horses in the worst and you don't get much lower than a Class Six contest on the artificial surface.

Early dividend for trackwork regulars

IT may only be a Class Six event round the minimum equitrack sprint of 1,030 metres but tomorrow's opening race looks to be quinella-sent for trackwatchers over the last few weeks.

During this period there looks to have been a fair bit of improvement from Kenny Kam's Sure Day and from Alex Wong Yu-on's Niagara Falls.
