The 2021 Greyhoundtrader.com Invitational Stakes went the way of Getwiththetimes on Derby final night at Towcester.
The April ’19 whelp, who was the only bitch in the race, ran a cracking race from Trap 6 to come home in front of the boys in Race 3 of the Derby final card. The sole wide runner was able to smartly avoid any trouble at the first bend and found herself a few lengths off the front pair of Chelms Tornado and Savana Domino when swinging round to the back straight. Being known as a strong runner, evident by her 6-bend performances at Central Park and by being a sister to De Machine, she soon caught up with those in front and swooped round the final bend in front.
She then went 2 lengths clear to the line and stopped the clock in an estimated 29.86. Chelms Prince was always staying well too and managed to claim second place whilst Savana Domino held on for third.
James Corden says ‘It was so fantastic for us to be able to hold a race like this on Derby final night. The atmosphere was absolutely electric and this is what the sport is all about. I hope all connections involved enjoyed having a runner on this special night and my congratulations goes to David who both trains and owns Getwiththetimes. She is really is a successful purchase for him having won a Group 3 competition firstly at Central Park before coming here. I believe she now goes for the Coral Regency at Hove and I will certainly be keeping an eye out for her.’
