Greyhound of the Month July 2020

July's Greyhound of the Month was Defy for trainer Troy Murray after an outstanding month of racing which included 5 wins from his 6 starts.

The son of Keybow and Velocity Storm is only new to SA racing and took a few starts to wind up.  He put the writing on the wall for what was to come in early July with a super second behind Boom Down at Gawler over the 643m in slick time.  He then went on a winning streak of 5 in a row with 3 victories over the 600m at Angle Park, all in sub 35 seconds, a strong win at Gawler over the 643m again in fast time and a last to first victory at headquarters over the 515m.

At the end of the month Defy’s record stood at 53 starts for 24 wins and 17 placings and earnings around  $70,000, stamping himself as one of the most exciting chasers in the State.
