Greyhound of the Month August 2020

Greyhound of the Month for August was Shadow Mist for trainer Lauren Harris which only had two race starts for the month, winning them both, but what significant races they were.

The son of Dyna Double One and Diva’s Shadow started the month off with a sizzling win in an SA Heat of the National Sprint Championships at Angle Park where he blew away his opposition in a blistering 29.33 leading throughout and winning by 9.50 lengths. He then started a red hot favourite in the SA Final and repeated the dose with a dazzling display, winning by 4.50 lengths in 29.39. This also booked his spot, if they accepted, into the Million Dollar Chase Semi-Finals in October. Connections elected to take Shadow Mist to NSW and trial at Wentworth Park leaving their options open for a return trip which is why the greyhound had only two starts for the month.

At the end of the month Shadow Mist’s record stood at 43 starts for 19 wins and 10 placings and earnings around  $53,000, with some exciting racing ahead for this star sprinter.
