David's own racing exploits include breeding, rearing and training with success.
He was part-owner of the Group 1 National Futurity winner Tar Dinn, his bitch Our Anne was a multiple Group placegetter, as was his brilliant Shorino (2nd fastest ever over 600m at Albion Park), while his bitch Rasheda at 41.35 is the fastest female ever over 710m at Albion Park and 3rd fastest ever at the track.
Breeding and pedigree research has been a passion for decades. In his role as a journalist in the greyhound industry he has written about most of the great champions for the past decades. He has gained an insight into how these champions were bred, reared and trained.
His own research has put him in contact with some of the greatest breeders, of both thoroughbreds and greyhounds, the world has seen. Their insight into pedigrees and what makes them great on the racetrack gives David a rare knowledge into what goes into making a champion.
He is constantly asked from around the world to prepare matings for broodbitches, evaluate pup pedigrees, and select compatible lines to help make a stud dog successful.
