January 2018

Greyhound of the month for January was the Tony Rasmussen trained Hukanui who raced three times in January for 3 wins, highlighted by his super performance in the SA Sprint Championship when he defeated a crack field of sprinters.

Locally bred, the son of Kelso’s Fusileer and Daddy’s Muffin started the month of with a blistering win at headquarters in a slick 29.66. He then stepped out in the SA Sprint Heats and blew his rivals away with a sizzling 29.52 win. With the SA Sprint Final delayed a week due to hot weather Hukanui was well prepared and led all of the way for a stirring win by 1½ lengths in a flying 29.65. 
At the end of the month Hukanui’s record stands at 71 starts with 22 wins and 30 placings with earnings just under $85,000.
