May 2024 | Rico Nismo

The Run of the Month for May was the Richard Pearce trained Rico Nismo, for her win in a Special Event over the 595m at Angle Park on Thursday, 9th May.

The daughter of Hard Style Rico and Gemma Nismo began fairly from her inside draw and during the early and middle stages of the event it looked like she might run a nice placing behind leader Fantastic Spike, who was high balling in the lead. However, Rico Nismo clicked into another gear mid race to come with a wet sail and claim Fantastic Spike right on the line for a stirring win by a head in a blistering 34.20. The time was so fast that Rico Nismo had to have run amazing sectionals to get close to Fantastic Spike let alone win.

After the event and reviewing the times, Rico Nismo ran the fastest final split over the 595m than any greyhound has run since Angle Park was redeveloped a number of years ago. Over 595m the 12.39 run home for Rico Nismo can be compared to the likes of Stout Monelli, Like Wildfire and Ravers Army who have only got home in 12.70 in their very fast wins. When Stout Monelli ran the 595m track record of 33.68 he got home in 12.78.

To compare this 12.39 run home time over the 530m the best performers have been Victa Damian 29.86 track record (run home 12.38), Aston Rupee 29.95 (run home 12.40), Like Wildfire 30.35 (run home 12.41). So for Rico Nismo to run as fast in the final section over 595m as the best we have had over 530m suggest it was a brilliant performance to win.



April 2024 | Riot Rooster 

The Run of the Month for April was the Ben Rawlings trained Riot Rooster, for his win in Heat 3 of  the SA  Anniversary Cup over the 530m at Angle Park on Thursday, 18th April. 

The son of Superior Panama and Ring In took on the best local and Interstate sprinters as he looked to qualify for the $50,000 feature. He began fairly from box 2, however, as the leader rolled away from the rails, he railed strongly, and the “Rooster” quickly assumed control from there and raced away for a brilliant win. He won by 2.5 lengths in a sizzling 30.24 to be the fastest qualify for the Final and establish himself as a real star of SA chasing




March 2024 | Like Wildfire

The Run of the Month for March was the Tim Aloisi trained Like Wildfire, for his win in the Easter Cup over the 595m at Angle Park on Thursday, 28th March.

The son of Goodesy and Freaky Tears has created a huge impression since arriving in SA and showed his brilliance in the middle distance feature. He began well and challenged for the lead in the early stages before running to the front on the first occasion. From there it was about times and margins as he raced away from his rivals for a terrific win. He won by 2.25 lengths in a brilliant 34.06.




February 2024 | Boots

The Run of the Month for February was the Nicole Price trained flyer Boots, who has gone to another level as a short course sprinter highlighted by his track record performance at Gawler on 28th February.

The son of Aston Dee Bee and Mrs. Sharp was able to lead throughout and win by four lengths, however, his time was amazing running a blistering 22.23 which bettered the previous best of 22.27 jointly held by Avid Tyson (2014) and Toby West (2022).




January 2024 | Lena Jinx

The Run of the Month for January was the Gavin Harris trained staying star Lena Jinx, for another fantastic performance at Angle Park on Thursday, 18th January over the 730m journey in a Free For All event.  

She already has the Angle Park track record to her name, however, she became the only greyhound to beat the 42.50 time on two occasions. She ran a brilliant 42.37 in winning by 17.25 lengths in demolishing her competitors and only .08 outside her track record.
