Greyhound of the Month - June 2021

Greyhound of the Month for June was Rushes for trainer Lisa Rasmussen.  The son of Collision and Midnight Moments had a great month of racing winning three and running a second in his 4 starts with the highlight being the Shane McQueen Final over 530m at Murray Bridge.

He started the month off with a metro win at Gawler in a mixed 4/5 series over 531m before finishing an excellent second in the Final. He then headed back to Murray Bridge for the Shane McQueen series. He won his Heat in a brisk 29.87 coming off the speed showing that he would be a major player in the Final. In the Final he looked like he was in a hopeless position of the back straight when he was midfield and tightened for room in one of the strongest editions of the Shane McQueen before he found a passage through and exploded close to the line getting up in the final few strides running 29.85.

At the end of the month Rushes’ record stood at 49 starts for 18 wins and 9 placings and earnings around $55,000.
