PROMISING youngster Mauboy delivered mirror-like performances this week to make win twice in the space of four days.

The Ted Medhurst-trained son of Go Wild Teddy scored a brilliant win in Launceston on Monday night coming from well back and he mirrored that effort in Hobart last night to take out the Greyhound Owner, Trainer, Breeder Association Tasmania division three final over 461 metres.

Mauboy made his way into the GOTBAT final with a game second to Acting Up in a heat last week but Medhurst was intent on getting another run under his belt before the final and he made it worthwhile by scoring in Launceston.

This latest win was Mauboy’s second from 11 starts but he also has accrued four minor placings.

The dog was bred by his owner Shaun Evans from his broodbitch Josette Bale.

Mauboy is one of a litter of nine and he is one of four that have won from six to race.

Hellyeah Missile began well from box seven to lead and he held sway from the unbeaten Sober Moment (8) to the home turn.

Hellyeah Missile got the measure of Sober Moment halfway up the home straight and looked to have the race in his keeping but Mauboy had other ideas and powered home to win in the last stride.
