48 SETS OF DERBY DREAMS ARE STILL ALIVE
On Saturday 17th, we stage the third-round of the Star Sports English Greyhound Derby. It is a very special night, you are guaranteed to see the 87th winner of the world’s greatest race and the dog that will bank the whopping £175,000 first-prize.
We are down to just 48 greyhounds now who are chasing this great prize. Out of these 48 magnificent greyhounds, only six remain unbeaten in the competition. Pacey Bambi (Paul Young), Shaneboy Freddie (Kevin Boon), Cloran paddy (Charlie Lister OBE), Clares Rocket (Graham Holland EIRE), Priceless Brandy (Paul Hennessy EIRE) and Danzey Exception (Gary Hodson).
One greyhound that is missing from that list is the new favourite Tyrur Shay. In the second-round he delivered a huge performance, it not only catapulted him to the head of the betting, but saw him smash the track-record when he stopped the clock in 29.72.
