SA Bred & Owned Chaser Wins The Gardens Group 1 National Futurity

It’s been a big month for owner Jason Caddy who resides in Surrey Downs, a suburb north of Adelaide.

His star chaser Sometimes Speedy was nominated as one of the five finalists for the 2012 Greyhound of the Year earlier this month after she had an outstanding season for local trainer highlighted by her front running display in the Cup Final back in November.

She missed out on the top prize, however, richly deserved her nomination in a star studded line up which included winner, Hope’s Up and 1 performer Kalden Mayhem.

Last month she was sent to trainer for a tilt at some of the bigger races Interstate and after three successive wins she started one of the favorites for the Futurity Final at the Gardens on Saturday night.

After beginning nicely from box 5 she speared to the front and from there the SA bred chaser was never headed recording a brilliant 29.40 victory over the 515m in winning by 2¾ lengths from kennel mate .

With the $75,000 first place prizemoney she took her career earnings past $114,000 with a fabulous record of 18 wins and 13 placings from 39 starts.

It is also terrific news for the SA Breeding Industry with Sometimes Speedy being locally bred by Troy Murray by out of quality sprinter Gemstone Supreme. By winning Saturday nights Group 1 Sometimes Speedy also earned her breeder $7,500 thanks to the Super Bonus Scheme which rewards SA breeders if their greyhounds can win specific Feature Group races.
