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 , the 2009 , 2009 , 2009 ; a second in the 2009 Australian; and making finals of the 2009 , 2010 , 2010 , 2010 Australian Cup and 2011 .

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.

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.
