Greyhound of the Month - May 2019

Greyhound of the Month award for May went to Querencia for trainer Kirin Corby which unanimously received all seven first preference votes from the judging panel on the back of him being undefeated throughout May, highlighted by his brilliant Group 3 Howard Ashton victory late in the month.

The son of Dyna Double One and Irish Keepsake has always been considered one of the most exciting young chasers in the land and proved his talent racing through the Howard Ashton series without tasting defeat. He won his heat by over 13 lengths at Angle Park running 29.30, with that time considered one of the 15 fastest of all time. He then won his semi-final by 8.5 lengths in a blistering 29.34 before being a red hot favourite for the final. He missed the kick and had to work hard to challenge for the lead but by midrace the Group 3 feature was in his keeping going on to win by 3 lengths in an amazing 29.49, considering he missed the start. 
At the end of the month Querencia’s record stood at 9 starts for 6 wins and 2 placings and earnings around $37,000 and is now considered the most exciting young chaser in the land.
