Swift Keith                                     
Vans Escalade\Swift Sandy (D), February 2012
Owned by: Mr C Waters

Exciting brindle pup, started his career in style clocking 27.86 at Yarmouth in his first 4-bend trial. Subsequently recorded a 28.04 trial at Monmore and finished 3rd in the 2013 Ladbrokes Festival Puppies Final sent off the 4/6F.

Keith warmed up for the William Hill Northern Puppy Derby when storming home in a Trial Stakes in 28.54 first look round and then winning the first round heat in a sensational 28.44.  Ante-post favourite for outright honours for this competition he went through to the final unbeaten, narrowly coming runner up beaten by short-head when 5/4F.  

Swift Keith went into the RFS Puppy Derby at Wimbledon in November, again as ante-post favourite.  He won his first round heat, but subsequently was withdrawn from the event with a muscle tear.

Keith on the comeback trail clocked a race win in front of the SKY cameras over the 480m trip recording 28.22.  Keith was installed the 14/1 ante post favourite for the 2014 William Hill Greyhound Derby but unfortunately was knocked out at the 3rd Round stage.

Following a while on the side lines with a few niggles, Keith made his comeback in the Yarmouth East Anglian Derby.  As 12\1 ante-post favourite for the competition Keith made it through to the final to be drawn in trap 6 which looked a bad draw against early paced types.  However, on the night Swift Keith came through to take the category 1 honours for his proud owner Chris Waters and to the emotional delight of John & Debbie Mullins and the Team at Dillymore.




Soviet Kenny
Droopys Vieri\Invincible Diva (D), October 2012

Soviet Kenny was purchased after reaching the 2014 Lee Strand semi finals at Tralee.

After his last Yarmouth qualifying trial of 28.34 behind kennel mate Swift Suarez, Kenny finished 4th in an A1 at Yarmouth. 

Kenny has competed in 3 major competitions to date finishing 2nd to the impressive Newinn Yolo over 500m in final of the Caffreys Puppy Classic at Nottingham

This was followed up by being a finalist in the Romford Champion Stakes in September 2014.

Trialling back from a hair-line fracture of the hock Kenny recorded 27.65 at Yarmouth over 462m on a cold December evening.  John decided a tilt at the Romford Coronation Cup was in order and Kenny duly obliged winning the final from the boxes holding off track champion Adageo Bob recording a fast 34.90.

Kenny will be stepped back to the standard 4 bend trip with the Swindon Arc and the William Hill Greyhound Derby his main targets.

 



Borna Champ
Head Bound\Borna Talent (M), February 2012
Owned by: Mr L Calcutt, Mr K Parkin, Mr C Waters

Champ is the litter Sister to Burgess Borna.  He was bought off the back of his fantastic run in the Final of the 2014 Harolds Cross
Corn Cuchulainn a length behind Razldazl Pacino.

After arriving in the UK Champ won a maiden 480m at Sittingbourne and this was followed up by finishing runner up in the Yarmouth 659m Derby Purse. 

Champ was decided to be entered for the Crayford Kent St Leger and amazing both his owners and trainer with his pace from 400m to finish like a train over the 714m trip to take the category 2 final by more than 4 lengths. 

He subsequently won the 1st Round heat of the William Hill St Leger at Wimbledon but was withdrawn from the quarter-finals witha cough.

His return to the track saw Champ make a trip to Shelbourne Park for the Night of Stars 750yds race finishing a very respectable 3rd less than 2 lengths behind the winner.  This was followed up by running at Hove in the famous Ballyregan Bob Memorial Race over 6985m which although finishing 5th he was just over 1 lengths behind the winner in a blanket finish.

 





Burgess Borna
Head Bound\Borna Talent (F), February 2012
Owned by: Mr H Berlin, Mr L Calcutt, Mr K Parkin, Mr C Waters

"Jenny" was purchased in September 2013 after her two eye-catching runs behind Irish sensation Groupie Doll at Newbridge for then trainer JJ Fennelly.

Coming over to the UK she went into season.  She won A3 grade Yarmouth first time out, 2 subsequent races over 6-bends she was picked up by the eventual winner.  Next two races at Coventry and Romford she won going away from the field and looked very eye-catching to the pick-up.

Her step up to 8-bends has seen an unblemished record winning at Hall Green, Sheffield, Crayford and Wimbledon over the extended distances.

The 2014 Sheffield TV Trophy came a few weeks too soon for Burgess Borna coming back from a false season and a shoulder injury.  However, she pleased connections by winning a trial stake at Sheffield a week before the competition started and then ran very well in the heats of the TV Trophy behind the fantastic King Kane.  The final saw Burgess Borna running over very strong to finish 2nd, again to the much deserved winner King Kane.

Back from being in season Jenny contested the JB Riney MBE Boxing Day Marathon at Crayford which she won the final beating kennel mate Toosey Beannie by more then 6 lengths in a Track record time of 55.89, bettering the previous time by 11 spots.
