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.

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 , the 2009 Queensland Derby, 2009 WA Derby, 2009 ; a second in the 2009 Australian; and making finals of the 2009 , 2010 Adelaide Cup, 2010 Temlee, 2010 and 2011 Golden .

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, 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. The fawn flash retired later that year with $715,508 to her name.

The mighty didn’t hold onto the record for long, in 2014 the incredibly versatile Xylia Allen assumed the top spot on the list for owner Jan Wheeler and trainer Jenny Hunt. The champion bitch retired late in 2014 with an incredible 40 wins and $743,730 in prize money earnings.

2015 saw yet another change to the rankings, with champion stayer Sweet It Is taking up the top spot to become the first greyhound to break $800,000 in prize money after winning her second Group 1 Sandown Cup.

Sweet It Is relinquished her spot at the top of the list when history was made on October 9, 2015, when the mighty Fernando Bale became the first greyhound to win $1 million in prize money. His win in the 2015 Adelaide Cup took his career earnings to an incredible $1,006,110, with victories in the Group 1 Derby, the Group 1 , the Group 1 Harrison Dawson, the Group 1 Peter Mosman Classic, the Group 1 Maturity Classic, the Group 1 Sprint Championship, the Group 2 Bendigo Cup, the Group 2 and the Group 3 all contributing to the mighty feat.
