(3) Todays News – full brother to Miss Clausey and plenty to come from this lad.  All kinds of trouble when well beat in the only race on his card and that run can be written off.  He’s much better than that and he’s sure to grade on nicely and progress quickly.
(4) Miss Clausey – lightly raced February 2021 bitch pup by Good News and out of In The Genes.  Already a 2941 winner around Clonmel and has any amount of improvement still in her.  Dam Genes was an open class winner around Shelbourne Park and Clonmel and a full sister to the superstar performer Clona Dream a multiple open race winner on Irish soil and of course reached the final of the 2019 running of the Irish Oaks.  Plenty of high-class races to win on the track but undoubtedly one for the breeding paddocks at the end of her racing career.
(5) Amazing Guy – white and blue January 2021 dog pup by Good News and out of Slippery Jade.  An open class performer on the track running a number of sensational races over a variety of distances Jade was invited to take her place in the 2018 running of the prestigious Dundalk International.  This youngster as with all pups from this vendor has been reared and schooled with no expense spared and was a half-length winner of the only trial on his card recording 1713 around Waterford.  Will have no problem at all staying and looks a real nice prospect.
(6) Epic Jet – lovely looking blue and white January 2021 dog pup by Ballyhimikin Jet and out of Hugh Dream.  Jet a winner of many opens at Ireland’s top venues and of course a finalist in the 2020 running of the Champion Stakes.  This is the maiden litter of Hugh Dream who raced at open class and won races around Clonmel , Shelbourne and Kilkenny and is from a line which consistently produces open class offspring.  Pacey young dog who will be well suited by most tracks here in England and is sure to be winning plenty.
(7) Dubh Gasta (ex – Glengar Doc) – lightly raced sort who showcased his versatility with back-to-back wins around Tralee in March.  A scorching 6 length win over the sprint trip there was swiftly followed up with a sensational four bend victory where he showcased that staying the trip is no problem at all with a 2-length win in 2890.  This dog is ready to go a total professional who knows how to get the job done.
(8) Classic Quattro – dam Classic Valerie produced high grade and open class types in her maiden litter to Laughil Blake and this latest litter to Dorotas Wildcat promise to be even better.  Quattro was a debut winner around Waterford when despite leaving plenty on the track he came through late to win well in 2982.  He’s shown plenty of improvement since then showing plenty of early pace recently but just picked up on the line by a strong runner when recording a much-improved 2949.  This dog should be well suited by Sheffield where the turning nature of the track plays ideally to front running sorts like him and he’s sure to be winning plenty for his new connections.
(9) Skirk Ricky – unraced January 2021 dog pup by Ballymac Best out of Annual Tears.  In Tears first litter to Droopys Sydney she produced top grade sorts including Walk On Sid an A1 performer around Shelbourne Park.  Merrymeeting Izi a full sister to Ricky has already won around Enniscorthy in 2932 and this lad has every chance of being much faster than that.  Reared and schooled he’s ready to go and should move right through the grades for new connections landing a touch or two along the way.
(10) Beir Bua – unraced November 2020 dog pup by Confident Rankin and from the maiden litter of Clonbrien Lucky who of course is a half sister to 2019 English Greyhound Derby Finalist and superstar of the sport Clonbrien Prince.  Lucky has every chance of making it as a successful brood and this litter have been showing huge promise in schooling.  Weighing in at 75lb Beir Bua has plenty of growing into his frame yet to do but has performed with promise in a couple of sprint trials around Thurles and Clonmel.

(13) Mineola Xena – unraced full sister to Mineola Better and a winner of the first four bend trial of her life when recording 2896 around Derry.  Missed the break on her first look at Shelbourne Park but still managed to record a decent 3004.  Reared well , schooled well and sure to be a useful addition to any graded kennel here in England.
(14) Mineolaguinevere – another stunning fawn bitch pup from the Mineola Meercat litter and could she be the most promising of them all ?  Two marks on her card with a solid 2898 effort around Derry followed up with a super 2944 effort around Shelbourne Park when winning a 2-dog trial by half a length.  Looks destined for top grade at least , reared well and all the hard work done.  Sure to be attracting plenty of attention in the sales ring.
(15) Cappaneale Blake – in just the first four bend race of his life this August 2020 youngster produced a sensational performance to get up close home in 2902 around Galway.  Dam Some Ambition raced in A1 company at the tough Youghal circuit and is closely related to many open race and competition class performers.  Blake is sure to race in high class here in the UK and is ready to get straight to work for new connections.
(16) Flemish Prince – lightly raced January 2021 dog pup who qualified around Derry in 2904.  Has looked in need of experience in a few races to date but can only improve and looks sure to have a successful career here in the UK on the graded scene.  Dam Mays Pearl usually throws high grade and open class offspring who improve with age and given this lads age there is plenty of time for him to progress yet.
(17) Ballymac Ozil – could be absolutely anything this unraced June 2021 dog pup by the strong running stud dog Vulturi and from the dam Jamaica Joy.  Joy is already well proven having produced Ballymac Tido in her maiden litter to up and coming stud dog Ballymac Anton.  Tido is still only in the early stages of his career but has already won in top A1 class at Newcastle and recently made his six-bend debut in open class.  Ozil ran out a 5-length winner of the sole trial on his card in 2987 around Tralee and was pulling away as they headed into the pick-up.  Sure to make a high-grade sort at least and could be anything if as his breeding suggests he gets further in time.
(18) Ballymac Remi – full sister to Ozil detailed above.  Wide running pup who stayed the four-bend trip out well when recording 30 dead in the sole mark on her card in a trial at Tralee recently.  Mountains of improvement to come from this raw pup and should quickly move through the graded system here in the UK.
(19) Derrymore Ella – another March 2021 bitch pup from the maiden litter of Sheilas Legacy.  Could be absolutely anything with her breeding and as with her litter mates has been reared and schooled to perfection.  Coming from a vendor who has sold many top-class winners through the sales here in the UK and this bitch could well be another.
(20) Magical Eleanor – what a prospect this February 2021 bitch pup is.  A daughter of the superstar Skywalker Logan and versatile UK open race bitch Antigua Vows.  With her breeding staying should be no problem for Eleanor and she highlighted that perfectly when winning the sole four bend trial on her card in a fantastic 2927 around Limerick.  Destined for the open racing scene here in the UK this wonderfully bred bitch looks to have a great career ahead of her both on the track and potentially in the breeding paddocks in the future.
(21) Knocknarea Syd – September 2020 pup by Droopys Sydney who is already a two-time race winner on Irish soil.  Showcasing great early gears when winning a Drumbo Park sprint in a very decent 1811 and landing a substantial gamble in the process he then went on to show himself in good light over four bends at Dundalk winning an A3 in 2902.  A really solid performer who is ready to get straight into work and should land new connections a nice bet or two along the way.
(22) Meenagh Mountain (ex – Bright Bean) – stunning 84lb black and white son of Droopys Sydney who given his large frame was given plenty of time to mature.  Just 4 races on his card and already a super 2911 winner around Clonmel when destroying his rivals for early pace.  Will be well suited by the galloping circuits here in England and will be utilising his early to win plenty.
(23) Easy Gadjet – hugely exciting February 2021 dog pup by the leading stud dog of his generation Droopys Sydney and out of proven open race producing dam Lear Avajo.  Within her maiden litter to Droopys Roddick was Easy Warrior already a winner of 11 opens here in the UK at distances between 480m and 630m.  Easy Diablo well known to regulars at Sheffield with wins in top grade and a multiple open race winner over six bends here and as well as at Doncaster and Towcester.  This cross to Sydney looks sure to prove even more successful and with Gadjet having already recorded 2893 around Shelbourne Park when winning a 2-dog trial by full 10 lengths it’s clear to see that he’s got plenty of ability.  Will no doubt attract the attention of many looking to add a young open class pup to their kennel.
(24) Greenmount Luke – unraced March white and black dog pup by superstar sprinter Ardnasool Jet and out of proven dam Alanas Beauty who has thrown open class and top-grade offspring in previous litters.  The mating to Jet is extremely interesting and should ensure that this litter have plenty of early and middle gears.  Reared and schooled and ready to go and will improve for experience giving his new connections plenty to work with over the coming months.
(25) Ballymac Roo – unraced brindle bitch who is another member of the promising Vulturi x Jamaica Joy litter.  Just the one trial on her card which was a winning one of 3010 around Tralee.  All the rearing and schooling done , a promising youngster who could turn out to be a real bargain with plenty of improvement still to come.
(26) Ballymac Archer – again a member of the Vulturi x Jamaica Joy litter and a real promising type.  Wasn’t the best into stride but soon got about her business to win the only trial on her card by 7 lengths in 2973 pulling away.  Looks a stayer in the making and falls firmly into the could be anything category.
(27) Tromora Liz – April 2021 bitch pup who without any doubt looks destined for an open class career here in England.  Just 2 trials on her card and an impressive winner of both with her 5-length victory around Limerick in 2973 followed up with 10 length victory around the same venue in 2926.  This is the maiden litter of Tromora Skip who being by Good News should produce strong staying types and Australian stud dog Out Of Range really does make this an exciting litter.  Reared , schooled and unraced this is the almost finished article and all that’s left to do is for the new connections to continue the good work already put in and they will have a bitch pup to contest many major events over the next couple of years.
(28) Tromora Glow – full sister to Liz and though she’s slightly behind her at this stage she’s far from devoid of pace herself as her most recent trial around Limerick showcased.  A huge 12 length winner in 2950 showed that this bitch at the very least is headed for the high grades and with just a little more improvement it’s no unfeasible to see her too racing in open class.  A real nice young prospect with all the hard work done.
(29) Mineola Better – wonderful looking unraced December 2020 brindle dog pup by Ballymac Best and out of Mineola Meercat.  This is Meercat’s second litter the first of which to Kinloch Brae contained many open and A1 class offspring including Mineola Queen who was a multiple top grade and open class winner over 630m at Monmore and Mineola Hardy a five-time A1 winner at Hove.  Stopped the clock in a fantastic 2947 in his very first look at Shelbourne Park.  Looks sure to be high grade at least at any track here in the UK.
(30) Mineola Adele – just the one mark on this December 2020 bitch pups card recording 2917 around Derry.  Full sister to Darver Mineola a two-time winner around Sheffield already and progressing nicely.  This bitch is fully schooled and will be another well suited by the Owlerton circuit.
(31) Meenagh Madman – unraced January 2021 dog pup by Laughil Blake from the maiden litter of Droopys Rafaella.  Rafaella is a daughter of Droopys Loner and therefore closely related to many high-class competition class greyhounds.  Madman couldn’t have done anymore than he has done so far by winning the only 2 trials on his card with a 4-length victory over the 400-yard trip at Dundalk followed up with a 3-length victory at the same venue over 525 yards in 2948.
(32) Black Lantern – August 2020 son of Dorotas Wildcat who posted a super 2929 around the tough Youghal circuit in a qualifying trial.  This meant he graded on at the high end of the graded system in Ireland and it’s maybe worked against him in a handful of runs to date.  That said he’s been knocking on the door and his 2925 at Dundalk last time out showed him in good health.  A fresh start here in England could be just what this youngster requires and if grading on a little easier he should soon be rattling off the wins.
(33) Ballymac Ansel – promising June 2021 dog pup from the Vulturi x Jamaica Joy litter.  Showed all kinds of pace in his 2993 trial around Tralee but ran very green and ran too quick for his own good into the bends.  This lad can only improve for experience and is fancied to make into a nice high-grade type and might even bet better than that if staying an extended trip.
(34) Ballymac Xavier – full brother to Ansel detailed above and very similar comments apply with this lad not being far behind his brother on the clock with him recording 3019 Tralee in the only trial on his card.
(35) Ballygur Best – low grade type who could well do with a change of scenery.  Not going to set the world alight but will prove to be a solid runner for any graded kennel.  Only a November 2020 whelp so plenty of time to improve.
(36) Ballygur Nidge – October 2020 son of Droopys Sydney and Cooladerry Blaze.  A three-time race winner on Irish soil who has taken big steps forward in recent weeks.  Winning his last 2 races in 2991 Waterford he then followed up with a much-improved winning effort in 2933.  No guessing where the improvement will stop , heading for the higher grades at least.
(37) Springview Lass – unraced April 2021 bitch pup by Eden The Kid out of Mean Beauty.  This is the maiden litter of her dam who competed at the highest level on Irish soil and was open class at all distances from four bends through to eight.  A real versatile sort who should pass on her undoubted pace to her pups.  Sales trial will be very informative but on breeding has every chance of a successful career.
(38) Phoenix Lucky – what a looker this lad is a stunning brindle pup who at April 2021 has months of improvement left to come.  By Quietly the 2014 Harolds Cross Puppy Derby winner and of course the 2015 Cork Supersprint Champion.  He is from the maiden litter of Ringlestown Rose who was a six-time race winner around the tough Mullingar circuit with her being well related to many open class performers including being a half-sister to the sensational 2020 Essex Vase champion Kilmessan Puma.  So little done with this youngster he could literally be anything and is sure to give his new owners plenty to look forward to.
(39) Ballymac Stormi – just a May 2021 bitch pup by one of the most talked about up-and-coming stud dogs Ballymac Cashout.  From the hugely proven dam Dolcino Rose who has thrown countless open class and top-grade offspring this bitch was green as grass when posting 3028 around Tralee in the only trial on her card.  Can do nothing but improve for a long time to come and is sure to be off interest to many both for her racing career prospects and those of a brood in years to come.
(40) Mineola Lara – another of the Mineola Meercat litter and a really exciting unraced prospect.  Just the two marks on this young lady’s card being wide margin trial wins around Derry in 2861 and Shelbourne Park in 2962.  A lovely fawn bitch who looks sure to progress rapidly through the grading system and at this stage and with decent times already on the card ‘could be anything’.
(41) Magical Sophia – full sister to Mystical Sofia with 2 marks on her card.  Winning a 2-dog trial over the 350-yard sprint trip at Limerick in her very first outing by a widening half-length she then followed that up with an impressive 2989 first time over four bends at the same venue.  Should quickly move through the grades and sure to provide new connections with plenty of fun along the way.
(42) Mystical Sofia – stunning unraced March 2021 blue bitch pup from the maiden litter of Sheilas Legacy.  Kept solely for breeding Sheila is a full sister to the open race stayer Magical Firebird who finished runner up in the 2021 Monmore Summer Stayers Final.  Just a March 2021 whelp all the hard work of rearing and schooling is complete and this currently unraced bitch has the whole of what should be a hugely successful track career ahead of her.
(43) Ballygur Kate – experienced low-grade type who knows what the job is all about and a winner already of 3 races.  Stays out the four bends well , will grade and win at any track in the country and sure to prove to be a valuable addition to any graded kennel.
(44) Ballygur Mitch (ex – Oakfield Swannie) – experienced mid to low grade sort who is an 8-time winner on Irish soil.  Wins off the front and from behind a greyhound who will settle straight into any graded kennel and prove a useful addition to the team.
(45) Lightfoot Rosie – pacey young black and white bitch who backed up the promise shown in her first 3 career races with an excellent 2904 win around Mullingar on her fourth competitive start.  Has been showing plenty of early zip in her trials at Newcastle since arriving in the UK. 
(46) Cricket Run (ex – Coolemount Silk) – very fast bitch with some hugely impressive runs on the card.  A 1783 trial over the sprint trip at Newbridge , a 2896 effort when winning a decent race at the same track by 4 lengths and a 2897 when beaten in a real good heat of the Oaks at Shelbourne Park.  This bitch has plenty of ability and though she’s maybe gone off the boil a little it won’t take much to reignite her and she looks sure to be a very nice addition to any kennel.
