Tanjil South greyhound trainer Kate Gorman is “on cloud nine” having prepared two of the four heat winners of the Group 2 Traralgon Cup on Saturday night.
This Saturday night’s final over 525m carries $67,000 in prize money, with Gorman’s pair Ice Cold Kaedyn and Monster Fish chasing the $47,000 winner’s cheque.
“I’ve never had a finalist in a group race, so to have two greyhounds make the Traralgon Cup is unbelievable,” Kate Gorman said.
“I’ve had a million text messages from people, which is really nice, but I haven’t had a chance to reply to any of them yet.
“I’ve been training greyhounds for the past 10 years, and my husband Matthew and I have been training full-time together for the past two years.
“To have two Traralgon Cup finalists has given us a huge buzz.”
