Showed enormous heart when powering home to win the Group 2 TAB Bendigo Cup in emphatic fashion in July after being fifth soon after the start.
Full Of Grace – Trainer: Peter Craig

Luca Neveelk – Trainer: Gerry Kleeven

The New Zealand-bred greyhound was a sensational winner of the Group 1 Hobart Thousand in December, and in doing so eclipsed Paw Licking’s 461 metre track record.
