The Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club 2017 Leading Trainer and Greyhound of the Year awards will be presented at Tara Raceway’s race meeting on Sunday afternoon.
Receiving her first Leading Trainer award will be Portland-based Nicole Stanley who led in 111 winners, 91 seconds and 85 thirds for a total points score of 710.
Her outstanding year included one day of five winners, three other days with four winners, along with nine trebles and 21 doubles – two of her bigger winners being Fiorelli Rose in the Anniversary Cup and Hit The Runway who won the Williams Crane Hire Christmas Cup.
In what was an interesting tussle for Greyhound of the Year honours, Fiorelli Rose with nine wins, 11 seconds and nine thirds (67 points) defeated Baz’s Moment (62) and Scorpion (58).
Another Stanley-trained greyhound, Old Jock, won the 2016 Greyhound of the Year.
