Greyhound of the Month - December 2020

Greyhound of the Month for December was Fly For Trix for trainer Jane McNichol.  Fly For Trix had three starts for the month, with two wins and a second capping of a fine season for the son of Fernando Bale and Weblec Rose.

In a tight month of voting Fly For Trix got the nod from the judges with the Group 3 Brian Johnstone final the main highlight. He started the month of as a red hot favourite in the Group 3 Feature and he didn’t let his supporters down winning in fine style by 1.50 lengths in a flying 29.75. He then went to the straight track at Murray Bridge winning as he liked in 19.07 over the 350m making it 8 wins in a row with a Victorian campaign on the cards. His final run for the month was in the Group 1 Silver Chief heats in Victoria where he ran a gallant second against very strong company, only beaten 2 lengths when he lead most of the way with a personal time at the Meadows of 29.87.

At the end of the month Fly For Trix record stood at 23 starts for 16 wins and 4 placings and earnings just over $50,000, with a bright future ahead for connections.
