Barry Drake

This week Barry Drake talks to three well-known and respected people within the Greyhound industry.

First up is trainer Declan McDonagh. Declan trained the 2022 Shelbourne Open 600 winner, Fast Fit Paddy. Declan was thrilled to be involved with this fast tracker and was delighted with his victory in the speedy time of 31:96. Declan has a small set up in Clare where himself and his brother Terry train greyhounds, they currently have seven with them.

Next up Barry chats with the joint owner of Fast Fit Paddy, John Quinn. John recalls last Saturday night’s win as one of the best nights to date. John also speaks about his long-term love for greyhounds as he was just 13 years old when he got his very one! John goes on to talk about the plans of an English Derby.

Finally, Barry chats with Dolores Ruth. Dolores enjoyed a double win last Saturday night at Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium. First with Mustang Joey and secondly with Maries Wedding. Two very successful and proud wins for Dolores. Dolores looks forward to another weekend of great racing at Shelbourne Park and undoubtedly, she’s hoping it will be yet another triumphant night for her!
