The Masters’ Meteor is an event which was conceived to give older greyhounds a feature event to aim for and was programmed to be a part of the Million Dollar Chase carnival.
The event is for Masters’ greyhounds and carries prizemoney of $100,000 for the winner. Heats are held 10 days prior to the final, with the decider an important feature on Million Dollar Chase Grand Final night at Wentworth Park.
The inaugural Masters’ Meteor was taken out by the Evelyn Harris-trained Cosmic Bonus, which clocked a slashing 29.63s, the fastest time on the night, quicker than even MDC winner Mystic Riot.
A year on and the placegetters from that inaugural final - Cosmic Bonus, Springcreek Bill and Blabba Mouth - all qualified for the 2019 Masters’ Meteor final, with 2018 third placegetter Blabba Mouth winning the 2019 edition for trainer Cheryl Murray.
