January 2019

Greyhound of the Month award for January went to the Tony Rasmussen trained Shima Breeze who only needed one start for the month to take out the award but what a win it was in the 2019 SA Sprint Championship Final. 

Shima Breeze was all set to compete in the heats of the SA Sprint Championship however due to mechanical failure with the lure system at Angle Park this race was abandoned. As per the rules of racing she was balloted into the final from her heat. After drawing perfectly in box 1 she started a raging hot favourite for the time honoured event and after showing brilliant speed to lead she ran away from her rivals in a blistering 29.30.

At the end of the month Shima Breeze’s record stood at 29 starts with 14 wins and 11 placings and earnings around $77,000.
