It’s been nine months since the inaugural National Greyhound Draft, and owners who bought in to the exciting concept are now on the cusp of seeing the first batch of greyhounds hit the racetrack.
Wallbanger – a son of Black Magic Opal and Absolute Stunna – will have his first race start at Geelong on Friday night in a heat of the rich Vic Breeders series (race two, box two).
Trainer Angela Langton is happy with the greyhound’s progress.
“We were hoping to put him over a bit more ground but this Vic Bred series came up which is worth $7,500 to-the-winner,” Angela told RSN’s Off The leash on Tuesday.
“He does have a lot of pace which will work to his favour over the 400 at Geelong.”
Those looking to buy into a quality bred greyhound will be happy to know that the National Greyhound Draft will take place again this year (in November), with some of the best-bred pups in the land already assembled.
