Your two greyhounds,as good as they are, were completely outclassed by a brilliant dog in the Melbourne Cup and to carry on after the event doesn’t seem very sportsmanlike to me. Sure he was a bit naughty but his wayward antics did not cost any other greyhound in the race a better finishing position. Except Surgeon of course, he would have won by 2 – 3 lengths the way he was accelerating. Most Australians love a rascal and boy do we have one here. He’s a freak and the public will be very quick to adopt him as he was absolutely sensational in the Cup. Here’s hoping Dazza can straighten him out a bit after he comes back from the sin bin.
