Congrats Wazza..Your Girl certainly fashioning a marvellous record in her brief career to date.

Thought My Girl looked even more outstanding early in her career.

Made Race debut at Hattrick in April 2008 Season,and ran half length 2nd (to Jetline)..winner ran 29.92.

Within 2 months,next 8 starts x 8 wins.

Winning margins..17L..9.75L..12L..8L..7L..7.5L..9L..6.5L = average 9.5L

8th Win came in $40,000 Top Gun Invitational at Addington (thanks also to Jape for helping to select her into field as a C1 graduate).

Ran 29.78,breaking rival Winsome Ashley's Track Record,a time standard yet to be beaten ten years later. ( though last night AC's runner Dyna Dave got close,matching Winsome Ashley's previous Record at 29.83)

Hope Cawbourne Krusty goes foward to have a much longer racing career than Miss Koonawarra did.

Cheers,Pilli.

Miss Koonawarra! Now that name really does stir up some nice memories. Thanks for the mention, Pilli.

I knew I had seen something right out of the ordinary and I took a punt, metaphorically speaking, when it came to pushing hard for her inclusion,

And what a Top Gun she was.

Yes Kev what a champion she was! Its great to remember and appreciate  the great champions we have had the pleasure to watch over the years.

Gatlin Bale ,while probably not champion status was one of my all time favs.He went 11 months undefeated over 600 and beyond and his first defeat came in the Silver Collar heats when he was severly checked several times in the running and just missed qualifying.He was a great dog to watch and had amazing track sense .

Who else has got an all time fav?

Hifi allegro would also have to be right up there she was the only sprinter to win all three of the top sprint races in one season and hold the recently passed record for most winners. 

Yes champion short course dog, only resently they have been given group1 status races which is well deserved but they don’t quiet carry the glamour of middle distance doggies unfortunately as I love them cheers
