Big guns and series favourites, Im Themightyquinn and Smoken Up produced trademark performances to open their campaigns of the V75 Inter Dominion Championship in the first round of Heats before a big crowd at Gloucester Park last night.

Smoken Up bludgeoned his opposition, finding the front after a fast 27.3 second opening quarter (400 metres), before hold off a strong challenge from Dasher VC, while home town hero and obvious crowd favourite, Im Themightyquinn was simply brilliant reeling off a sensational closing section of 26.8, the fastest of the night.

Boom New Zealander, Auckland Reactor finished over the top of a gallant Washakie in the opening heat, with the Peter Tilbrook trained Crombie causing the customary upset of the opening round, proving too good for Can Return Fire, with race favourite Raglan having no luck when finishing sixth and Mr Feelgood once again not producing his best in the West.

The top nine point scorers at the conclusion of all three Heats will earn a start into the $1 Million V75 Inter Dominion Grand Final on Friday 2nd March. The point score after the opening round is as follows, with the Heat winners all on 13 points.
