Greyhound of the Month August 2018

In another terrific month of racing voting was close for the Greyhound of the Month award for August, however, it was the Petar Jovanovic trained Cairnlea Kenny who was judged best for the month highlighted by his brilliant third in the Group 1 National Championships at Sandown in late August.

Cairnlea Kenny started the month off with a solid second in a heat of the State National Sprint series and went into the local final as one of the favourites. He exploded out of the boxes to lead all the way and defeated a high quality line up in a slick 29.73 booking his spot at Sandown in the Group 1. Representing SA Cairnlea Kenny ran a bold race in behind the eventual winner West On Augie in running third with many judges believing a check early in the race could have cost him the top prize. 

At the end of the month Cairnlea Kenny’s record stood at 50 starts with 18 wins and 19 placings and earnings just over $77,000.
