Greyhound of the Month - June 2020

Greyhound of the Month for June was local staying star Sir Truculent for trainer Wally Harkins who was undefeated for the month, winning all of his four starts and dominating the Thursday night schedule.

The son of Worm Burner and Establish, which was also bred by Wally, started the month off in fine style winning the prestigious Shane McQueen Middle Distance Feature over the 600mwhere he came from the tail of the field to score. He then stepped back up to his pet distance of the 731m, continuing on his winning way, winning his next three starts. He ran 42.95 in winning by 3.75 lengths, then 42.88 in winning by 13.25 lengths and then 43.00 in winning by 3 lengths, easily accounting for his opposition.
At the end of the month Sir Truculent’ s record stood at 51 starts for 22 wins and 19 placings and earnings around  $87,000. With Sir Truculent heading over the border we wish him the best of luck and let’s hope he can bring back to SA some of their money.
