My Treasure – Courtney Austin
‘Springtime - My Granda’s greyhound’
‘My Granda’s greyhound was the only greyhound bitch to win the Irish Derby and the English Oaks ever in the history of the greyhound racing. Springtime, my Granda’s greyhound ran the fastest time ever in the final of the Derby, he finished the race in 30.00 seconds. My Granda was so proud of his achievement, as this was the biggest greyhound race to win. Granda has raced greyhounds for around 30 years and this was his proudest moment’.
