KC And All x Flying Cassell
Wh & Fawn – 35 kg – Sept 2013
A son of Champion US sire KC AND ALL
On The Track: Sundance started his racing career by breaking the track record at the NGA track in Abilene during the 2015 Spring Nationals, recording a sensational 29.52.
He then sold at the Racing Auction as a pup, for one of the highest prices ever recorded at a Nationals meet, a staggering US$76,000
It was straight to America’s top track, Southland where for two years he consistently raced as one of the best greyhounds at the West Memphis circuit. In that time he recorded 53 wins from his 106 starts racing in Grade A and AA for the duration.
That equates to … a start every week …. and … a win every fortnight … for… two years … at the one track … Southland … America’s best track … that’s soundness and that’s chase. And he was still at the top of his game after two years, winning 4 of his last 6 starts there in AA Grade, before finally succumbing to injury and retiring.
Ask yourself … how many Australian dogs could go to the one track (and it was the best one) and race their entire career there (over 100 starts in two years), never leaving the track compound (no bullrings or trial tracks) and winning 50% of their starts … all in top grade ?
As well as racing his whole career in TOP grade, Sundance was runner up in the 2016 Southland Kings & Queens Stake & was a finalist in the 2015 Southland Festival Male Sprint, the 2016 Southland Festival Male Sprint and the 2016 Southland Derby, starting equal favourite
