SO MUCH MORE THAN A FLASH IN THE PAN
Pearcedale’s powerful Thompson kennel lost one of their all-time favourite greyhounds, the brilliant El Galo (known as Flash), to cancer recently.
El Galo was trained predominantly by Jason Thompson throughout his 71 start career, which netted 44 wins 19 placings. He won $519,000 in prize money.
