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 Clash Of Kings winning the Group 3 Darwin Cup, Farmor Las Vegas the Group 3 Townsville Cup, Full Of Grace the Waterloo Cup and Sweet It Is the Group 1 National Distance Championship.
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.
