Cape Clear breeder/trainer Gary Peach has heaped praise on his four-year-old superstar Action Girl, who was recently retired after notching her 50th career win at start number 84.
“Once she got to 46 wins, she was still racing so well, and the plan was to get to 50 wins and then retire her,” Peach said.
Reflecting on his trip to Healesville on February 4 for what turned out to be Action Girl’s final run, Peach said it was a day of mixed emotions.
“It was a happy day and a sad day… I was happy she retired but sad that she want going to race again because she loved to race and she brought us so much joy at the races.”
“But she is getting on in age and she did her job.”
Only a select few greyhounds get to 50 wins – while she won from every box at least three times – achievements not lost on Peach.
