Brilliant youngster Birthday Boy claimed the $7,000 first prize in the MTD Geelong Young Star Classic on Friday night.
However, the Steve Elsum-trained speedster wasn’t the only greyhound with reason to celebrate.
In running second to Birthday Boy, Young Ravello catapulted past Invisiting Me to be judged the most consistent greyhound throughout the six-week Tri-Star series, thus earning a free service to champion sire Bombastic Shiraz for his connections.

- Bendigo heat – 1st (8 points)
- Bendigo final – 3rd (6)
- Ballarat heat – 2nd (7)
- Geelong heat – 2nd (7)
