Radio Greyhound’s Sneaky Debut

Daniel Harford struggled to contain his excitement after his first greyhound, Sneaky Essemess, ran second on debut at The Meadows today.

The former Hawks (and Blues) midfielder won a share in the greyhound as a result of his show on 1116 SEN, ‘Harf Time’ winning the radio station’s fantasy greyhound racing competition – Topdog – during the Australian Cup Carnival earlier this year.

Harford encourages Harf Time listeners to send in a “sneaky SMS” at the top of each show, hence how the greyhound got its name.

Bred by Carl McGrath and trained by Graham Glass, Sneaky Essemess is impeccably bred being a younger half brother to Horsham Cup runner-up Innocent Til.

Glass describes Sneaky Essemess as an immature greyhound who will improve with time.
