Breeders to bask in Pink Diamond riches

Friday night’s GRV VicBred Pink Diamond grand finale at Bendigo will be the richest night of provincial racing in the history of Victorian greyhound racing with $617,765 up for grabs including $80,565 in breeder bonuses.

In what has been a big boost for the sport at grassroots level, around 220 Victorian breeders have been involved in the series, 87 of whom will have at least one runner across Friday’s 12 prestigious finals.

Open exclusively to greyhounds bred in Victoria, the Pink Diamond series saw eight maiden semi-finals and 40 heats held across a variety of grades and distances last Thursday and Friday at Warragul, Ballarat, Shepparton and Geelong.

And many of the biggest names in the sport will partake in the night, including Ferdinand Boy, Koblenz, Aston Fastnet, Shima Shine, Aston Rupee and Catch The Thief to name just a few.
