Greyhound of the Month October 2020

Greyhound of the Month for October was Golden Night for trainer Troy Murray which had four starts for the month, winning three races including the Group 1 TAB Adelaide Cup.

The son of Go Wild Teddy and Hilary started the month off with a brilliant 29.37 win in the Heat of the Adelaide Cup stamping himself as a real contender in the Final. He then ran a brilliant race to chase down Catch The Thief in the shadows of the post to take out the Group 1 Adelaide Cup giving Troy his second win in the feature, 14 years after Miss Spicy won in 2006. He then went to Gawler for the Group 3 series as the series favourite and didn’t disappoint in the Heats running a slick 30.67 and qualifying the fastest.   His final run of the month was a gallant second in the Gawler Cup Final where he ran home powerfully to just fail to catch his kennel mate, Major Major in the prestigious northern feature.
At the end of the month Golden Night’s record stood at 36 starts for 15 wins and 11 placings and earnings just under $100,000 making him one of the best sprinters in the State, if not Australia.
