1116 SEN was part of the 2019 National Greyhound Draft, broadcast last Sunday on 7Mate.
The draft is the most innovative and affordable way to get into greyhound racing, as people can buy into one of eight teams for a 2% share in three young pups aged less than 12 months for just $1,200, no more to pay.
Team SEN entered the draft with picks 5, 12 and 21, and with their first selection took Freddie, a 10-month-old son of US sire Bella Infrared out of Bella Shima.
National Greyhound Draft expert George Farrugia has high hopes for Freddie (pictured above).
“Freddie’s mum Bella Shima was huge, she had genuine strength and her brother Shima Bar was a group one winner. This pup is a beautiful big brindle dog, which I expected to go high up (in the draft),” Farrugia said.
The draft is an exciting way to be a part owner of a trio of potential champions who will be looked after by rearers and trainers chosen for attention to detail and welfare excellence.
While there is no guarantee every pup will make the racetrack, many will begin racing in late 2020 and early 2021.
