Greyhound trainer Monique Hynes, who suffered serious injuries in a fatal car crash on the way home from the Shepparton greyhounds on May 2, has undergone her second surgery at Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital.
Monique was travelling home to Anakie with Passeggiata, a greyhound trained by her fiancée Jack Campbell and owned by Geoff Slattery.
Sadly, Passeggiata, who won on the night, had to be euthanised two days after the crash because of a ruptured diaphragm.
Monique Hynes, who is 29, received multiple fractures and internal injuries.
“She is likely to be transferred to Geelong Private Hospital in the next couple of days, which will be a lot closer to home,” Jack said.
“It will most likely be three or four months until she walks again and she won’t be back to herself for about 12 months, so we’ve got a long road ahead.”
On behalf of the greyhound racing community, Greyhound Racing Victoria wishes Monique well in her recovery.
“Monique and I, and our whole family, in fact, have been overwhelmed by the support and kind wishes we have received, particularly from people in the greyhound racing industry,” Jack added.
