IF quality greyhound sprinter She’s All Class can return to the winner’s circle in Launceston tonight for popular trainer David Crosswell there probably won’t be a dry eye in the place.

Crosswell is still recovering from the death of his wife Margaret who passed away in late June but if She’s All Class can emerge triumphant in the invitation race over 515 metres at The Tote Racing Centre tonight (race 7) it would help put a smile back on the trainer’s face.

“It’s been tough since losing my wife – a lot tougher than I first imagined,” Crosswell said.

“I have my family helping me through it and I guess I’m just going to have to learn to get used to not having Margaret around – but it’s hard,” he said.

She’s All Class was one of Margaret’s favourite kennel tenants at her and David’s Longford property.

The bitch suffered an injury and then lost all form but Crosswell said she has turned the corner with her performance at a recent Devonport trial and her work up the straight track at home at Longford good enough to suggest she can win tonight.

After her injury She’s All Class went into semi retirement from racing to have a litter of pups but as soon as they were weaned off her Crosswell put her back in work and she has since thrived.

Her last three efforts look woeful on paper but Crosswell believes she is working as good if not better than when she was racing at her peak.
