The greyhound racing industry is saddened at the recent loss of successful breeder/trainer Graeme Jolly, 66.
Graeme, of Officer, left a huge mark on the sport, with highlights including winning the Lizrene Classic with Mutombo Miss in 1994 as well as the first Australian Cup held at The Meadows with Mandatario in 1999.
“Graeme joins his good mate (and fellow trainer) Merv Patching, who died a couple of years ago, which knocked the wind out of Graeme,” wife Sue Jolly said.
“The two of them spent every Thursday night together at Sandown for about 30 years. They would share a bottle of scotch and argue and bicker with each other all night. Now they can continue their bickering at the racetrack in the sky.”
