If it was 25 years I'd say clearly Brother Fox.

I must admit to being a bit snobbish, I've always favoured Harold Park dogs over Wenty dogs.  That's why I can't have Rapid Journey.  Good as he was, I just couldn't see him being a champion at HP.

What about Awesome Assassin?  Brilliant 1 turn or 2, grass or sand, brilliant sprinter who may have been a champion stayer if given the chance (he still holds a couple of 600 records doesn't he?).

Worth Doing?

There would have been no betting if they didnt retire him so early.

Could have done anything.

Of the last 20 years there is no contest.

Brett Lee by a country mile.

The angle park track record is just ridiculous. 28.88 for 515m. 



2nd hmmmm I'd go Whiskey Assassin for pure speed and ability just in front of Flying Amy.

Rapid Journey was the best race dog of that lot however.

True, but so was Worth Doing's Wenty grass record, 29.50.  Only a handful of dogs broke 30sec before loam.

Clearly the best was that one Jack Pringle had.......I watched it win a maiden at Queenbeyan one day in track record time....it then went to the Gabba and pulled off a massive plunge....that was a 5th grade event....thing is...I think it raced as Top Prune? in those couple of events....the dog was also known as Temple Quest.....a top grade city dog.

Yep, I nominated BL and RJ as my best.
BL not a bad sire too  ;) and also DMc arguably the best trainer in past 20 years

Gin ...my earlier post re Pringles ring in dog...did I remember those names correctly?....and apparently the one dog won no less than 4 maiden races under different identities.....not sure if that part is correct or not....but surely would not surprize me...

Bundy it was before my time but it was brought up on another greyhound forum recently, I believe it was identified as Temple Quest (or very similar) and the story was very close to as you've posted.

I remember when I was told by a leading trainer about Worth Doing etc, couldn't believe my ears and didn't want to believe what I was hearing ...... a couple of years later and the whole 'pottergate' blew up  :thumbsd:

The 'best' can take into account many things but trying to rate them on pure speed I'd go this way  :chin: imho of course

1 - Brett Lee (and by miles)

2 - Flying Amy (freak)
3 - Whisky Assassin (amazing mid race pace when he found room, would have loved HP)
4 - Tenthill Doll (rep of the trainer worries me)
5 - Surf Lorian (may suprise a few, but ran an unheard off 20.60ish at Singleton when 21.2 was fast)
6 - El Galo (faultless beginner)
7 - Rapid Journey (more a race dog than out and out speedster)
8 - Elite State (perfectly placed during his career)
9 - Go Wild Teddy (front runner, didn't really run time)
10 - Pure Octane (good race dog)

I left out Worth Doing by mistake but really don't know where to put him, he'd be up there but his record is tarnished  :thumbsd:
