Western Bulldogs star Stewart Crameri has been training hard over the summer so has his greyhound Disco Rain.
Trained by Ian Garland, Disco Rain had an enforced injury layoff and has been in training for about a month in readiness for the restricted win series at Shepparton beginning this Saturday night.
Crameri, who met Disco Rain recently, said he impressed with the greyhounds temperament.
“I was really surprised at how calm and placid he was when I met him,” Crameri said
Crameri has formed a strong relationship with Garland – the pair have even bought another greyhound together – and is excited about the speedster returning to the track.
“It’s been a good journey with him so far and I’m looking forward to see how he goes tomorrow night.”
The Bulldog’s leading goal kicker from 2014 said that he has some lofty ambitions in greyhound racing and would love it if his dog had the talent to make the world’s richest race.
“I was at the Melbourne Cup last year as a fan but hopefully this year he can make the final so I can go as an owner!” he said.
Disco Rain burst onto the scene with a blitzing win at Horsham on debut. Since then he has had a couple of injury troubles but is primed for his assault on Shepparton tomorrow night.
