[quote=“therock67”]Good enough for me lads. Backing College Causeway as soon as they price it up on Paddy. I know nothing about greyhounds but got stung on one before.
My bro used to work in the industry so was decently connected. Bought a dog for my da from some lad and had it trained somewhere (I’m not great on the specifics as you can see) and it ran a few races and did ok. Won one early enough and then just mediocrity for another half dozen or so. Then had another race and da rang the trainer about it and he said not to bother coming that he’d no chance and wasn’t running to win so da didn’t show up and didn’t back it obviously. Fecker won and the price history the next day showed he’d been backed in hugely on a massive gamble - again don’t remember the details but it was a huge swing. Trainer obviously in on the gamble but pure prick not to let the owner get a piece of it.
Ah that’s sick. I’d be dug out of the fucker. A well known Limerick horse trainer pulled a very similar stunt before, running the horse while the owner was on holidays and landing a massive gamble and the owner wasn’t in for a penny of it.
Have a bitch myself at the moment, but it’ll be a few months yet before she races.
