This red brindle dog whelped in March '08 has proved himself a speed machine now holding 2 track records in the State. Damek took out this years Maiden Thousand with ease, he also won his heat of the St Leger breaking 26 seconds suggesting that he was capable of breaking the record and he won the Final by 5 lengths.
The brilliant DAMEK took out the Betfair Tasmanian Gold Cup Final in November, he beat his opponents by 5 lengths in the great time of 25.97. Owned by Peter Phillips and trained by Eileen Thomas
Spiritual One winner of the thetote.com.auMaiden Thousand is owned in Victoria by Dave Burnett and trained by Mick Stringer.
Spiritual One was slow to begin from box 7 but mustered speed to beat the opposition by 6 lengths in the time of 26.26sec.
Pudzianowski,named after a strong man, showed his own strength with a track record win in a heat of the Greg Fahey Mid Distance Championship over the 599m trip. Owned by Greg Swann and trained at Moorleah by leading trainer Russell Watts.
This red fawn dog took out the Greg Fahey Mid Distance Championship Final in style. There was some concern as to whether he would be able to cross the field from the 8 box, but he showed great race sense and crossed without any interference and then put a gap in the field going down the back.
Pudzianowski won by 6L. We will see many more wins from this very talented greyhound.
