Greyhound of the Month August 2021

Greyhound of the Month for August was Rushes for trainer Lisa Rasmussen making it the second monthly award for the son of Collision and Midnight Moments who also took out the award in June.

He had five starts for three wins and a second with the highlight being the National Sprint Championship SA Final held at Murray Bridge where he won in brilliant style. He started the month off with a second at Gawler before the Heats of the National Championships. He won his Heat nicely before producing a sizzling 29.78 win over the 530m where he led for most of the way in winning by 3 lengths against a quality line up. He was then unlucky over the 455m at the Bridge before returning to Angle Park and recording the fastest time so far over the 530m where he ran 30.47 in winning by over 8 lengths.

At the end of the month Rushes record stood at 57 starts for 22 wins and 11 placings and earnings just over $75,000.
