Swimming Goat

4 posts in this topic

A splendid tribute to the Goat from Pete Fenemor and the number one sprinter featured also on Dogzone today.

Swimming Goat brought personality to greyhound racing at Addington. The name, the lightning speed, the record-breaking achievements. He certainly did have  a cult following. That he was able to win 3 Group 1s was quite remarkable and that Railway victory, as Calum indicated, was very, very special.

Happy retirement, Floyd.

True marvel to watch him notch them up with ease, and credit to the trainer for keeping him on the up for so long. Wheelchair Norm is another one. Although the past few weeks have not been as of old, he is another that just keeps turning up every week.

Enjoy your retirement Floyd! A champion in your own right, and a true athlete and "showboy" that "encouraged" many eyes to the industry. Your huge fan base are going to miss you!
