Successful Premier Greyhound Sales at Monmore with £133K Turnover

The latest Premier Greyhound Sales at Monmore on Friday proved to be a huge success, generating a turnover of just over £133,000.

The top lot of the day was Droopys Fodder, a blue April 2023 dog by Malachi out of Droopys Charm, who was sold for £16,500 to a syndicate of owners led by Kim Billingham. This followed an impressive trial where he led all the way, recording a time of 28.98 for the 480m trip.

The fastest time of the day was recorded by Fine Thanks, a black June 2022 son of Droopys Sydney out of Tibet, who clocked 28.83. He will remain at Monmore with Alan Jenkins after being purchased for £5,000.

Other notable sales included Droopys Elena (£8,200), Easy Ojo (£7,500), Majecka (£5,500), and Sporting Stage (£5,200).

Nathan Corden commented, "It was a remarkable day, and Monmore has once again proven to be a very strong sales venue. Tony Williamson and his team always make us feel very welcome, and the track was in superb condition.

"The auction was interesting as our regular auctioneer, Richard Walsh, was delayed, so we had to improvise for the first half. James Corden stepped up to the plate and did a brilliant job for his first experience as an auctioneer!"
