Greyhound of the Month - March 2020

Greyhound of the Month for March was Hot Sophie for trainer Tony Rasmussen who had 4 starts for the month with 2 wins and 2 placings with the highlight being her brilliant win in the listed Murray Bridge Cup final.

The locally bred daughter of Fernando Bale and Cuddletime Tears started the month off with a solid win at Murray Bridge over the 455m where she was able to lead throughout. She then stepped out with the big boys in a heat of the Murray Bridge Cup and again showed brilliant speed to lead and was just run down in the shadows of the post by boom greyhound, Querencia. She qualified for a super strong final and started one of the outsiders but again she began very well to put herself right in the firing line. She lead the hot field up and her competitor’s had every opportunity to run her down; however couldn’t, and she went on to record a stirring win by a neck in a slick 25.42. Hot Sophie then ran a strong second at headquarters towards the end of the month.

At the end of the month Hot Sophie’s record stood at 14 starts for 7 wins and 6 placings and earnings around $26,000.
