Australian Greyhound Racing Top Prizemoney Earning Records


The Australian prizemoney records have seen rapid changes in recent years with the push toward feature races now offering in excess of $350,000 prizemoney to the winner.

With the constant flux we offer a simple list of the Australian record prizemoney earning greyhounds that we will constantly update as it changes.

High Earner was the highest career prizemoney earner with $610,070 earned from 69 starts that reaped 33 wins and 21 places including 2 Group 1 Perth Cups, the 2011 Group 1 Temlee, the 2009Queensland Derby 2009 WA Derby, 2009Vince Curry Memorial a second in the 2009 Australian; and making finals of the 2009 Topgun, 2010 Adelaide Cup, 2010 Temlee, 2010Australian Cupand 2011Golden Easter Egg

It took a Group 1 Temlee win for High Earner in February 2011 for him to break Rapid Journey’s long standing prizemoney record of $530,995, which had stood since 1998.

In February 2013 the current prize money record holder Miata won her 5th Group 1 and 40th career win in the Group 1 Galaxy at Cannington at her 46th start and took her prize money to a new Australian record of $671,508 with plenty of racing still ahead of her.

Good prize monies these days when you compare the prize monies 14 years back. Rapid Journey's achievements are outstanding with his record prize money of $530,995 way back in 1998 when prize moniey back then where no where near what it is today.

My theory that dogs that are special,speed wise, make great stud dogs, there are only 3 great sire amongst this lot Brett Lee, Bombastic Shiraz and perhaps Cosmic Rumble telling statistics, too many starts no stud career.
