People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound Voting Now Open

Voting is now open for July’s People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound with Mepunga Hayley, Mepunga Tiara, Warrior King and Xylia Allen in contention.

Cast your vote for the chance to win one of five double movie passes.

The quartet was nominated on the back of some big race wins they each accomplished during the month of July, with Mepunga Hayley winning the Group 1 Hudson Pacific Maturity Classic, Mepunga Tiara the Group 2 AWM Distance Championship, Warrior King the Group 2 TAB Bendigo Cup and Xylia Allen the McKenna Memorial.

Incidentally, nominations for August’s People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound are now open, so if you’ve noticed an outstanding performance by a greyhound trained in Victoria this month, tell us about it in a personal message on GRV’s Facebook page and that greyhound could be up for voting next time.

Winners go into the running to win the 2014 People’s Choice for Most Popular Greyhound.
