When Midnight Flash bolted away to win by 10 lengths at her debut at Bathurst on Monday, she enhanced the lofty reputation already established by a 22 month old litter by Fernando Bale from Midnight Elsa.

The Dave Pringle bred, owned and trained Midnight Flash's litter brother Along The Line had won first-up for Melbourne trainer Jason Thompson at Sandown on April 5, clocking a sizzling 29.53 for the 515m.

And while the Ben Campton owned, Adam Campton-trained Midnight Affair also scored at her first start in a tidy 30.93 at Richmond on April 26, there are three other as yet unraced siblings who are just as quick.

Western Sydney owner Robert Jones has purchased Midnight Escape and Night Tracker from Pringle, while Running Numbers, which Pringle is training, is also very fast.

"Unfortunately Along The Line has broken down and is back home at my kennels,'' Pringle said.

"He tore the cruciate ligament which runs from the shoulder and it is such a serious injury there is only a 10 per cent chance of him racing again.

"But his brother Running Numbers is just as good and while he is presently sidelined after copping a dose of acidosis, he is going to be fine.

"I didn't really want to sell Midnight Escape and Night Tracker but Robert Jones had previously bought Watch The Wasp and the Paws Of Thunder winner Buck's Future from me when they were unraced youngsters.

"So he is a good client and isn't afraid to spend the right money to get a fast dog.''


Ebby Infrared will go to Dapto "cold'' without having seen the track as he attempts to notch his seventh consecutive win tomorrow night.

Ebby Infrared will clash with the in form Good Odds Buddy, who is a proven campaigner at Dapto, in the 520m Adopt A Greyhound Free-For-All.

Good Odds Buddy will exit box three while Ebby Infrared is ideally positioned in one, where his record stands at three wins and two placings.

Trainer Michael Eberand said: "Ebby Infrared has not seen Dapto but this race will tell me whether I can risk taking him to Melbourne for big races later in the year without first trialling him at places like Sandown and The Meadows.

"He is flying at the moment and when he won over 535m at Richmond last week in 30.47 his sectional times were near records.

"Ebby Infrared clocked 5.19 for his first split and 15.19 for the second section, which are sizzling figures.''


SUPER sprinters Blue Bronte and Aston Tatum clash at Ladbrokes Gardens on Friday night with each going into the 400m From The Track Free-For-All with near flawless records.

Blue Bronte, who will start from box four, has won over 400m at the Newcastle track in 22.59 while Aston Tatum (box three) boasts a personal best time of 22.70.
