A common theme across the three animals’ connections is that they all quickly became aware of the other’s existences.
“My Glitter Strip came out and raced on the Tuesday and won at Ipswich, that Saturday night the trotter ran and then on the Sunday the galloper ran and won too,” Neal said.
“I then got tagged on Facebook because there was another Glitter Strip that had come out and won.”
“It was a coincidence that a friend of ours has a share in the galloper and he rang me and said that they have the same name,” Cremin said.
“He told me at that point there was also a greyhound with the same name but it’s all just one big coincidence.
“It would’ve been nice if he had won his start when the other two had won in the same week, but you can’t have everything.”
Unfortunately, we’ll never see the three of them match up against each other but if we did, there’s a bit of conjecture about who may get the chocolates.
“We’d need a head start I think, but if you give us 100 metres it would be a close competition,” Cremin said.
“As far as speed goes, he does possess some high speed so he’d give them a good run for their money.”
Siemsen was bullish about the thoroughbred’s chances over say 500 metres, but any shorter than that and he thinks the grey could be a real shot.
“I watched the replay of the dog the other night and she was really impressive,” he said.
“If it was over 500 metres then I’d be backing my horse but it wouldn’t want to be any shorter than that because Glitter Strip the dog wins then.”
Neal conceded to the galloper as well, but more so just wanted to see it come to fruition.
“Anything past 300 metres then my girl is no chance, but I would just love to see that kind of race actually happen – having all three Glitter Strips there with each other, it would be a great way to promote our sports,” he said.
“You could even do it down on Australia’s Glitter Strip (the Gold Coast) like they do for the horses during Magic Millions.”
