Greyhound of the Month October 2018

Greyhound of the Month award for October went to the Tony Rasmussen trained Honcho Monelli who took out his third monthly award for the year and now looks the favourite for Greyhound of the Year honours. 

Honcho Monelli started the month of in brilliant fashion winning a heat of the Group 1 Adelaide Cup in a slick 29.74 before starting one of the favourites in the final. He missed the kick in the Group 1 final but flashed home out wide to run a slashing third in the high quality feature. Towards the end of the month Honcho Monelli ventured to Gawler for the Group 3 Gawler Gold Cup heats where he was sensational in running 30.63 for the 531m journey in winning by 6 lengths and would start as one of the shortest priced favourites for the final in recent history.

At the end of the month Honcho Monelli’s record stood at 102 starts with 30 wins and 43 placings and earnings around $168,000.
