IN-FORM greyhound Daniel’s Bay expanded his winning streak to take out the $10,000 to the winner Minister’s Gift final over 452 metres at Devonport today.

Daniel’s Bay began well from box six and after a stoush with three of his rivals heading to the top turn he forged clear and went on to score comfortably from Wynburn Loco and Amazing Harry with Underground a close-up fourth.

It was the Gary Fahey-trained dog’s fourth win in succession and this latest win gave him a clean sweep of the Minister’s Gift series winning both of his heats as well as the final.

Daniel’s Bay (Talk’s Cheap-Wooreddy) is owned and was bred by Barry Heawood who races the dog under the Island Syndicate.

Daniel’s Bay has won 11 of his 28 starts as well as nine minor placings for over $31,000 in stakes.

Provided Daniel’s Bay holds form he is likely to progress to the Group 1 Hobart Thousand series with heats to be run at Tattersall’s Park on December 11 with the $75,000 to the winner final a week later.
