Panther brings back memories of his sire with Thurles romp.
The December 09 son of College Causeway was being compared with his legendary father after leaving his rivals strung out as he won by 15 lengths in 28.39sec.
Racing manager Jody Thompson said: "I don't think I've ever seen a puppy performance like this in my life. It was an incredible run around here and he reminded me of his sire."
Milldean Panther flashed out of trap four and led around the bend by about two and a half lengths from Blakefield.
From here, though, it became exhibition stuff as his grounddevouring strides carried him further and further clear.
Putting the run in perspective, it was 98 spots quicker than the next heat best, a 29.31sec effort posted by the Niall Dunnetrained Eyes On Him when leading virtually all the way in the second eliminator.
