There's nothing like looking back on past great races to keep your dreams alive and get your blood pumping.

Just thought it might be a good positive thread for people to post their favourite Greyhound or fav race from the past.

Love this race.

Wow Micky, great minds think alike it seems (that terrifies me....)

I was watching Sweet It Is 2 days ago and then came across this cracking documentary on the Warrnambool Warrior.

Sorry I can't get up an external link , but this is the best race I've ever seen . R8 box 8 14/04/2001 @ WPK. Dead set I'm sure this dog just excellerated through the gears when he hit the turns . Yep Brett lee .

Daryl,

You mention having a soft spot for Kawati Miss, well I had a bit of a soft spot for her sire Kawati Boy who took part in one of the best finishes to a race I can remember; I wish I had footage of it.

As posted by myself about ten years ago ..."One of the greatest finishes I can ever recall was the 1978 Association Cup final at Harold Park.

I remember being ridiculed at the time for even suggesting that the 50/1 roughie Cyclone Corsica had a chance, let alone what I considered a great chance of winning. Whilst it meant betting against some then favourite dogs of mine - Michele Cherie, Little Vogue and Kawati Boy, I went with my convictions and duly spent the rest of the night boasting.

Cyclone Corsica came from the clouds to nail the early leader Kawati Boy by 1/2 a head, with Michele Cherie 1/2 a head away in third. Dusty Ginny was a nose away in fourth, Little Vogue, Delbairn Babe and Tatto Boy were fifth, sixth and seventh respectively; in all, only two lengths covered the entire field - a fantastic finish!"

Yes he certainly did Ryan . More like advice, he actually helped a lot of people. In this particular case he said " I shouldn't tell you this but there's 5 grand in it for you , if he wins . Just be yourself " Modern gossip hurt a wrist ligament in the cup final and subsequently was beaten at his next start I think at geelong, by dissick I think. Great days , and thanks for digging it up mate .

The dog I enjoyed watching most was the stayer, Farrarami. Was always tailed off midway through it's races and would come home with a wet sail. Great stayer !

Couldn't find any footage but maybe someone can help.
