Voting is now open for June’s People’s Choice Most Popular Greyhound with Dewana Result, White Spyro and Xylia Allen in contention.
Cast your vote for the chance to win one of five double movie passes. Winners will be announced on GRV’s Facebook Page on Monday 14 July.
The trio was nominated on the back of some big race wins they each accomplished during the month of June, with Dewana Result taking out the Group Listed Northern Districts Cup at Shepparton, White Spyro the Wagga Gold Cup in NSW and Xylia Allen the Group 1 Gold Cup at Albion Park.
Incidentally, nominations for July’s People’s Choice 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 of the monthly People’s Choice Most Popular Greyhound go into the running to win the 2014 People’s Choice Most Popular Greyhound.
