Brilliant bitch Storm Queen (2-1 on fav) was hailed last night as the best greyhound to race at the Macau Canidrome in its 34-year history after a magnificent win in the $200,000 Carlsberg Derby. Storm Queen, slow from the traps, overcame a staggering 20-length deficit at the first bend in the 550-yard Classic to win going away by five lengths in a time of 30.1, a record for the Derby in its ninth renewal. For owner Darin Leung and trainer Wong Chi-lung it was a dream come true - although there were anxious moments throughout the race. 'I knew she would be slowly away but when we were coming to the home turn I had two of my other dogs in the final blocking my way. I was really worried then, but she came through brilliantly. 'I have had the beaten favourite in the last two Derbys and had runners in others. I have no doubt she is the best greyhound to have raced here in over 20 years if not in its history,' said Leung. There were gasps from the crowd as Storm Queen rounded the first bend with only one dog behind her and Good Dog blazing away in front from rails runner Chrome Plated (8-1), which was second. But Storm Queen, every inch a fighter, blazed into it halfway down the back straight, picking her way through and then arrowing for the rails. She maintained the momentum coming to the home turn and forged through a narrow gap to take it up. Red Bomb finished third and the Derby turnover was a respectable $384,484.
