The 15th edition of the Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association's Gold Rush Carnival kicks off at Lord's Raceway on Thursday.
The heats of the Jarrod Larkin Concreting Gold Rush Maiden will be run on Thursday and Friday.
The carnival's flagship event, the Gold Rush Maiden series is always a popular series and each year unearths some stars of the greyhound racing world and this year's series will prove no exception.
The $10,000 to the winner series has drawn 10n heats, five of which will be held on Thursday evening and five on Friday afternoon.
The placegetters plus the two fastest fourths will progress to the four semi-finals on Wednesday, April 17, and from there the first and second placed runners in the semi finals will make it through to the rich final on Easter Sunday.
On Thursday, the highly-promising Steinbrenner looks the goods in race seven after an impressive 30.01 Meadows maiden win on February 20.
On Friday, promising stayer Blue Shadows, fresh off a flying 33.90 Sandown 595m win, will be a short-priced favourite for the 10th race over the 660m trip.
The Gold Rush Carnival continues on Sunday with a meeting, before four race meetings are staged next week over the Easter weekend.
