Exclusive One Awarded Australia’s Best Greyhound Race For July 2012
Written By Neil Brown, Australian Greyhound Racing Association Correspondent Thursday 2nd August 2012
AGRA’s Run of the Month for July 2012 has been awarded to up and coming New South Wales sprinter Exclusive One following his outstanding performance at Bulli on July 30th. The young speed machine smashed Bartrim Bale 472 Bulli record which has stood since the 19th of December 2007.
In an extraordinary effort Exclusive One made the handy field look second rate when he stopped the clock at 25.87 slicing 5/100th of a second of the previous record of 25.92. It was Exclusive One’s seventh win in a row including three at Maitland and now four straight at Bulli. In six of the seven wins Exclusive One has recorded best time of the meeting.
Owner-trainer Dave Righetti also broke in the Primo Uno pup and has held a very big opinion of the brindle chaser’s ability since that time, given his form so far in his short career that opinion has been vindicated.
Exclusive One’s immediate mission is the heats of the National Sprint Championship at Bulli on Monday night. He has drawn box four in heat number three and with his liking for the Bulli circuit he will certainly prove hard to beat.
Exclusive One is a brindle dog whelped March 2010 by Primo Uno from Clair Maude (Hallucinate x I’ll Get By) he is raced and trained by Dave Righetti from Kellyville in New South Wales. Exclusive One has raced 11 times for eight wins and two seconds with his overall stake earnings standing at $10,640.
As usual there were some outstanding runs recorded in July but given the Bulli record has stood for such a long time the young sprinter got the nod for the monthly award.
AGRA congratulates Exclusive One connections after being judged the AGRA Run of the Month for July 2012. He joints last month’s winner He Knows Uno, Miata who has won it twice this year plus the January winner Heston Bale, February winner Radley Bale and April winner Barcia Bale as the AGRA runs of the month for 2012.
