Shakey Jakey Breaks Track Record On Debut
Written by: Jeff Collerson and Jess Moran



David Pringle has received offers of up to half a million dollars for Shakey Jakey, after the debutante broke the Wentworth Park 520m track record in his Sportingbet Magic Maiden heat last night.

Skimming over a track made sloppy by heavy rain, Shakey Jakey (pictured with Pringle, left, and handler Jacob Burke) had racegoers gob-smacked with his 20 length win in 29.07, posting splits of 5.49, 13.74, 17.75 and an unheard of run home of 11.32. The time was 0.20 seconds (three lengths) better than Punch One Out’s previous record of 29.27.

The win also had Pringle stunned, despite Shakey Jakey having broken the Bathurst track record in a performance trial in March.

“I knew from the times he was running in his trials that he would come close to the record at some point, but to do it last night and run that time was just unbelievable,” Pringle said.

"Almost a year ago, I was sitting in my house watching Punch One Out run 29.27 and I said to myself, nobody is going to beat that record for a very long time. And last night, what (Shakey Jakey) did just gobsmacked me.

“We've had a few offers since last night. There was talk last night of a half a million dollars for him. I don't believe that party would have thrown out that amount if they didn't have it or weren't genuine.”

Despite the huge money offers on the table, Pringle is still unsure whether he will sell Shakey Jakey.

“Don't get me wrong, money is always good and you can't pay bills with trial tickets but money can't buy the feeling we had last night. I wouldn't be doing this if I was just in the game for the money,” he said.

“This is the type of dog you dream about. I'd love to keep him up here in NSW and win a few races up here.”

Rival trainers were also in awe of Shakey Jakey’s performance.

After the race, premiership winning trainer Jason Mackay, whose bitch Punch One Out established the previous record of 29.27 a year ago, said: "Shakey Jakey might be the fastest greyhound we have ever seen.

"And on his run home time he would be completely unbeatable over a middle distance and would certainly become a champion stayer.

"But if Shakey Jakey was retired to stud immediately at a fee of $2,200 he would be booked out and could earn his owner $1 million before he even had a pup on the ground!"

Prolific group one winning trainer Anthony Azzopardi added his endorsement to Shakey Jakey’s extraordinary performance.

"I don’t believe I will see another run like that in my lifetime."

Friday night Race 3 box 5 7:58pm

He was a bit clumsy out of the boxes & benefited from having a vancant box next to him.

I wouldn't take shorts (wouldn't bet against him either)

Brett Lee ran 29.86 about 10 years ago I think, he'd break 29 easily now the way the tracks seemed to be prepared.

I keep thinking of Murphy's Blu Boy as this story develops, heard on the radio the trainer received an offer of $750 000! :o

Not much now I wouldn't think, unless they have a stash of swimmers tucked away in the freezer.

Big difference though as the breeder has been producing fast dogs for along time. Not the lightening strike of MBB

As it happens Murphy's Blu Boy died in 2010 after spending 5 years at stud.

In all he served 305 mares with an advertised fee of $5 500. That all adds up to about $1.7 million but you can bet your life that not everyone paid the $5 500.

Yep, that was my first thought as well.  But I have my suspicions about GRNSW anyway.

Probably smart business but poor form IMHO  emthdown

I won't part with any $$$ to breed with him until he's well proven, he looked clumsy in a field beating up maidens on a tricked up track. Would have been interesting seeing him get to top grade and race others with some ability  :whistle:

No doubt he's got a motor and might have made a champion stayer but ...........

Why would you go to him. Why go to a sire who only had one start?  Not much point in getting a quick one if you can't keep it sound.
