He is in the best physical shape of his life and he’s riding equally as well, but top rider Brenton Avdulla may not need spring spoils to help his career.
He has a greyhound who looks super, super slick.
By the best dog we’ve seen in Australia for the past 25 years, Fernando Bale, Avdulla’s pup stepped out at Maitland in a maiden on debut, Monday night.
And, well….went bang.
His name is FERNANDO HUNTER (named after the hoop’s son) and he looked lightning in a jar winning by 8 lengths.
But it was the time that sent greyhound die hards into a spin.
Seasoned, speedy dogs just don’t break 26sec for the Maitland 450m trip …. but this pup did….and remember, he was on debut!
He ran 25.96sec.
