WINNERS came thick and fast for several leading kennels across the country last month.

Top Victorian trainer Andrea Dailly led the charge by rugging up three or more winners at no less than eight meetings, headed by a six-win haul at The Meadows track in Melbourne.

Surprisingly only two of the winners started favourite – Daph\’s Zac at $1.80 and Zipping Ticket ($1.90).

Dailly\’s other winners were Zipping Volkswagon ($6.70), Zipping Zenvo ($4.10), Gypsy Urana ($10.80) and Roxy Uozo ($7.10).

The trainer was also successful at Ballarat – bookending the month with winning fives – as well as a four at Geelong and trebles at Ballarat (twice), The Meadows (twice) and Geelong.

Leading Victorian couple Correy and Samantha Grenfell combined to produce six winners at Geelong.

Correy was successful with Went For Swim ($4), Vianna Bale ($2 fav), Alumni $2.50 fav) and Waldemar Bale ($1.50 fav), while Sam rugged up Winslet Bale $8.60 and Gintoki Bale $3.40.

The Grenfells are no strangers to successful greyhounds in their short careers, being blessed with Orson Allen in 2018-19, who banked more than $620,000 in prizemoney.

Since then Tiggerlong Tonk has stepped up as their kennel star.

The couple, based at Mount Wallace west of Melbourne, have their hands full with four young children, including twins, as well as a large team of dogs.

\”Without Samantha, there’s no greyhound racing operation,\” Correy once said.

\”She’s the backbone of it all.

\”Samantha does all the hard work while I’m out racing, and that includes caring for our four kids.\”

Another trainer in the money during the month was South Australia\’s David Peckham.

Based at Allendale East, south of Mount Gambier, Peckham landed five winners at a Murray Bridge meeting,  rugged up another two winning quartets at the same track as well as winning trebles at Mt Gambier (three times).

Other trainers to prepare a five-win haul included Ricky Brewer at Gunnedah with Quirky Cassie ($3), Fernando\’s Charm ($2.20 fav), Typhoon Mae ($3.40), Mercator Bell ($1.85 fav) and Fernando Alonso ($2.60 fav), Andrew Bell was successful with Malin Beg Millie ($18), Skyway ($7), Good Time Lenny ($1.45 fav), Hola Adios ($3.80) and Ritza Daniel ($7) at Richmond, while Helen Hanson had a big day at Taree with Rock On By ($3 fav), Get Up Ally ($19), Daysea\’s Jimmy ($1.12 fav), Fabio Lass ($2.20) and Coastal Ally ($2.15 fav).
