Greyhound of the Month October 2017

Greyhound of the month for October was the Ben Rawlings trained Bogie Bekim who took his monthly awards to three after a great month of racing, winning three of his four starts.

The son of Bekim Bale and Bogie Skye started the month of with an unfortunate fall at Gawler which could have seen the star stayer off the scene for a number of months however he recovered well and was trained to the minute when he stepped out in the Premier’s Cup on Adelaide Cup final night. He won in a sizzling 43.07 by over 12 lengths and everything looked to be back on target for another Interstate campaign. He won again at headquarters the following week by 11 lengths in a slick 43.18 before heading across to Victory for the Group 2 Topgun Stayers at The Meadows in late October. Taking on one of the hottest fields seen at the venue in recent history, Bogie Bekim disregarded his $20.00 quota to run home powerfully and chase down Fanta Bale in the home straight to win in strong fashion by 1 length in 42.62. 
At the end of the month Bogie Bekim’s record stands at 59 starts with 22 wins and 17 placings with earnings around $272,000 and now has to be one of the favourites for this year’s Greyhound of the Year.
