Two and counting for Langton in Geelong Winter Cup

Angela Langton will head into Friday nights Geelong Winter Cup as the only trainer eligible for the $1,000 Beckley Centre bonus with her greyhound Hit The Runway (pictured with trainer Angela Langton before the Group One Rookie Rebel earlier this year).

A Geelong member for more than five years, Langton believes that trainers should be supporting their local clubs.

“I am really happy to be able to support my local club, its only $85 – that is almost fully covered in our starters fees if we bring one dog to the track,” Langton said.

As for the Geelong Winter Cup which will be run this Friday night, after a lack of nominations prevented heats being run – Langton is aiming for her third consecutive Winter Cup win.

In 2015 and 2016 Wind Whistler claimed honours in Geelong’s feature middle distance event.

Hit The Highway has drawn box four in the $14,000 final and has opened up as a $10 chance.

The son of Oaks Road and Full Noise Turbo has had 36 starts for 12 wins and 11 minor placings.

His biggest achievement to date was an invitation to the Group One Rookie Rebel at The Meadows over the 600 metre distance.


Veteran chaser Bruce Tycoon has been a regular in the Geelong Winter Cup the past couple of years, with this year no exception.

But Zipping Angus for local Lara trainer Brooke Ennis is the red hot favourite and will be jumping from box one in hope of his fourth consecutive win.
