The Horsham Greyhound Club hosted its second annual Greyhound of the Year awards tonight.
After hosting their inaugural event in 2020, nobody knew what was just around the corner with a global pandemic looming and not long after the world became a different place.
To be able to actually hold the event with people in attendance in 2021 was something that Horsham Greyhound Club manager Justin Brilliant believed would not be possible.
“I am stoked to have the awards take place this year, as it’s been a very tumultuous and uncertain year in many respects. I am absolutely thrilled that the industry was able to keep on going throughout these tough times and credit goes to everyone within the industry for making it happen,” Brilliant said.
In attendance on the night as guest speaker was AFL games record holder and North Melbourne great Brent “Boomer” Harvey who regaled the crowd in his stories of on field excellence as an elite AFL player and athlete.
Current GRV Board Member and former Richmond AFL player / 1980 premiership winning star and now AFL Hall of Fame member Emmett Dunne was also there to enjoy the night and see the Horsham Greyhound club showcase its achievements.
A special presentation was also made to club stalwart Bob Turmine for his dedication to the club and industry as whole.
12 months prior, the much admired JAR MAN took out Horsham Greyhound of the Year.
