“It is with much sadness and tears that I say today…that Magic Spring has died from a twisted bowel,” Holloway’s post read.
“He spent a day at the vets to no avail. Too sad to think on.”
Despite closing in on four years of age, Magic Spring was still one of the finest greyhounds in the state, winning 25 of his 79 starts with 20 minor placings.
A winner of $199,000, Magic Spring also won at Maitland where he held a sensational 24.74 personal best over the 450m trip.
His final victory was at Wentworth Park on June 21, taking out the FFA event in 29.97, before heading back headquarters on July 5 for what would prove to be his final start, finishing fourth behind Utah Miss.
