Greyhound of the Month - December 2019

The son of Kinloch Brae and Footluce Diva had a total of 4 starts for the month with a record of 3 wins and a second. He started the month in fine form by causing a small upset by winning the Doug Payne feature final in 29.61 seconds on December 5th. He won again the following Thursday night at Angle Park before leading all the way in the Kate's A Scandal Xmas Sprint and producing a fantastic 9 length win on Saturday December 21 again at Angle Park.

His current record stands at 19 wins and 14 placings from 53 starts with careers earnings of $150,000.
