The Million Dollar Chase Consolation is for the eight greyhounds which have finished second in the semi-finals of the world’s richest greyhound race a week earlier at Wentworth Park, and narrowly missed start in the big race.
In its inaugural year, the Consolation was taken out by first reserve True Talent leading all the way from box 5. True Talent, trained by Hunter Valley mentor Jason Mackay, had gained a start following an injury to Victorian speedster Benali.
In 2019 the race went to young trainer Tim Caines whose dog Nangar Jack led throughout from box 8 to clock 29.73s. Coincidentally, this was the exact time run by True Talent 12 months earlier.
