LITTER brother and sister Bell Haven and Jethro will represent Tasmania in next week’s national distance championship in Hobart.
The two greyhounds finished first and second in the Tasmanian championship on Thursday night and have earned their way through to the national final.
At yesterday’s box draw they both drew favourably with Bell Haven in seven and Jethro in three.
For the first time both the national distance and sprint championships will be held in Hobart next Saturday with Rob Pines and New Recruit the two Tasmanian runners in the short-course event.
Bell Haven and Rob Pines are both prepared at Mangalore by top trainer Ted Medhurst.
Jethro is trained at Penguin by Steve “Butch” Deverell and New Recruit is a member of the Mick Stringer kennel at Mangalore.
Rob Pines and New Recruit will both have to overcome tough box draws on Saturday after they received the six and one marble.
Being the host state Tasmania is allowed two representatives in each of the national finals.
On Thursday night Bell Haven and Jethro were part of a unique family achievement with another littler brother Beaudine finishing third in the distance championship.
Beaudine is first emergency for the national final.
